YO, so the past 30 days I was fasting for Ramadan.
Ever since I was 21, I'd try to challenge myself to do something during Ramadan to improve myself. Either spiritually, physically, emotionally, and this year, artistically
Since Ramadan is exactly 30 days, and Bee already did this challenge
, I thought it'd be the perfect thing. I originally wanted to do Monster Boys, but guys are my comfort zone, so I wanted to actually challenge myself to do more girls. A lot of them ended up androgynous as per my usual though =7=;
All in all, it was tough, but really rewarding!
Most of the monster girls were made up on the spot, and those were the ones that went into the last "Celebration" prompt.
But I'm gonna ramble a bit about any cameos, if anyone is interested!
- Day 5's mermaid is Mallory from the Sam&Sara arc of Picture This. I always associate her with mermaids and water, so I thought it'd be really cool. I based her design off of my Safari picture, where she's inspired by the Emperor Angelfish.
- Day 12 and 16's zombie and ghost are Morgan and Dominique from Romaine Hearts. RH has a lot of "undead" themes, and Mor has always been subtly zombie-themed (which is where all the stitches and string in her visual motifs come from). Dom was inspired by a Chinese Ghost called a Diao Si Gui, the ghost of someone hung to death.
- Day 17 is my personification of my computer, Cynthia
- Day 21's werewolf and Day 28's Group are Mint (werewolf..she shows up twice LOL), Ash (vampire), Autumn (banshee/ghost), and Ren (grim reaper), from SalaDays
- Day 22's Feline girl is Kye from my Avatar fan-story, re-imagined as a Bakeneko (if she were in the SalaDays universe)
- Day 24's multi-armed girl is <a href=tyshea.deviantart.com/art/Imor…">Aseri</a>, from my unnamed fantasy world project. The magic in that world is all elemental, and if anyone taps too deep into their magic, it starts to take them over, turning them into an elemental. Seri's element is wood, focusing on bark and growth, and I wanted to use a lot of Hindu imagery for her elemental state since her nation is based on traditional Thai culture.
- Day 26 is not my character, its' Morrigan from Dark Stalkers! One of my top fav monster girls ever
- Day 28's monster girl couple is my undine Sym (I haven't drawn her in forever, so have a link to Bee's gallery. A newer picture is in Bee's Monster Girl Challenge too), and Bee's witch Addison. Yes they're an item in Bee's WWP branch, White Outlines.
These can also be found on Tumblr
in three chunks: [1/3] [2/3] [3/3]
I'll also be cleaning up the two Romaine Hearts and SalaDays pictures to post individually later
AND THAT'S ALL FOLKS.
CAN YOU..PICK A FAVORITE?
And Eid Mubarak to any of my Muslim fans!
