Aaaah, falling behind even further............er :screaming emoji:
Oh well, oh well XD
Next week will ALREADY be HALLOWEEN week! :O Are you all celebrating it? Got any costumes ready? Got your house decked out with Halloween decorations? Been watching horror movies? Bought candies and choccies for the trick-and-treaters yet???
I have done.......... none of the above! XD;;;;;;;
Halloween isn't really celebrated in Australia so it's a bit hard to get into the spirit of it, sadly!
But someone who's been partaking in the spirit of Halloween is ............ my grandpa, @shibasaki :> Check out his beautiful new video of a green pumpkin at YouTube! He said that green pumpkins don't get enough love (as much as the orange ones do) so he painted a green pumpkin for the season :D
Just amazing, isnt it ? :D :D :D
I've been helping him as Comment Moderator at his YouTube channel and we're now only 1k away from 500k subscribers so if you haven't followed him over there, is a good time to do so :D :D :D
As for #inktober 2019 - we're now 9 days away from wrapping up! I hope everyone who had participated have had a great time :> It is NEVER too late to jump in as you dont have to do ALL the prompts, and if you do decide that you have a little time to participate, there are two huge curation groups who are supporting the event at Steemit at the moment :)
Shout out to OCD and CreativeCoin curation efforts!
Again, if you are an artist, and you're participating, I'd LOVE to see if you can shout out for your Steemit posts from your external / other social media blogs. Drop me the url to your twitter/FB/insta posts with the link back to your Steemit post, and I will send you some STEEMs :D
Here is an example of what I did for
Day 1: https://twitter.com/muchspider1/status/1179209918097702912
Day 2: https://twitter.com/muchspider1/status/1179892412006588417
Day 3: https://twitter.com/muchspider1/status/1180975414476304385
Day 4: https://twitter.com/muchspider1/status/1183502263592992768
I am trying very hard to promote Steemit and Steemit artists' visibility through the #inktober event, people :) It only happens once a year and the amount of activity and participation for this event on the other social media places are THROUGH THE ROOF so let's ride on that wave and give back what we can to Steemit? You know? Instead of just creating posts to get fed by the system, let us try to lift our fair share of work and give back to the system?
Also, check out the winners from the previous days in these posts:
- Winners for Day 1 to 4
- Winners for Day 5 to 7
- Winners for Day 8 to 10
- Winners for Day 11 to 13
- Winners for Day 14 to 16
Okay, enough spoder blarghing. Here's spoder arting~
Day 6 - HUSK(y)
Continuing from my Day 5's picture, with the wickerman, the two kids seemed to have NOT been able to find a playmate to sit in their wickerman so they found some corn cobs instead and the two are now roasting some corns with the husks on :)
I love me some roasted corns, with a pinch of salt * ___ * De-li-cious~
These two kids are really growing on me lol :D
And here is a shot of the piece during its WIP stage:
I did it with black ballpoint pen on standard printing paper :) !
As usual, I did this by freehand but if you are doing #inktober, pencil sketch before inking is A-OKAY! :D
Anyway, if you're doing #inktober, post the link to your steemit url below in the comments and I'll check it out cuz I'm one of the judges in the OCD/CreativeCoin event :D And and and and...
...if you can also cross post it at your external social media, link me to your twitter post/ insta post/ facebook post also !!!
Cuz OCD/CCC might give you a higher upvotes if you do !!!! :D :D :D
Okay, that's it from me for now! See you in the next post, friends o/
