Art challenge!

The Spacerobots are starting an art challenge to draw something every day in the month of April. I decided to give it a try too. I really need to venture outside of the frantic motion of our move north and ground myself again in what I love to do.

I've been drawing nethik in the few moments I could grab between chores. Experimenting with their physiology. I'm not really happy with the earlier experiments. I've been capturing too much of the reference and not enough of the essence of what makes them nethik. I put an earlier one under the cut at the bottom of the post if anyone's curious, but here's one so far that I like.

Have a drawing inspired by jumping through too many bureaucratic hoops in order to be here in our new home.

A pen and ink drawing of a deerlike creature with a horn, looking straight out at the audience, with half-lidded narrow eyes. One ear is raised and the other is askew, both ragged and notched.


A pen and ink profile of an equine head with a bright dark eye and thick eyelashes. A veil on a thin chain of beads covers most of the head but drapes down to reveal the eye above it.

P.S. Here is the Spacerobots' first picture too.
