Hey, friends :D
Did you know that this upcoming Friday is Mid-Autumn Festival? Yep, for people that celebrates it, Friday the 13th will be MOONCAKE TIEM~
(Also, it will be FRIDAY the13th!!!)
Do you have any spoopy stories about Friday the 13th living up to its name? :O I don't have any, but for today's piccar, I drew something in the moods for the upcoming spoopy day~ (plus a full moon) (cuz of mooncake day) ... XD;
For this one, I went back to the black pencils. I kinda am attached to the black and white, I think. There's something really classic with the contrast between the two :D
Who is she? Why is she crying blood? How does she gets such good volume with her hair? There are many questions that popped in my head as I was drawing this. A few ideas for a dark story ! I really enjoy when my art talks to me, as they come together in front of my eyes :) This is partially why I love letting my hands draw without any planning, you see? Because the process allows for exploration of ideas inside my head. And now, I have the rough building blocks for a short story about a tragic figure, just waiting for me to write it out :D :D :D
.... as for the hair's volume, it might be a particularly damp night and her hair becomes a little frizzy! (at least, that's one mystery unravelled! hey? XD)
As usual, it's the Tilted Pencil tool on Krita. With the watercolour brush at the end for the background effects :)
As promised, the prize pool has been BOOSTED!!! It was usually 30 Steems per round, but I decided to put it up to 42 Steems for the FINALE, and then.... the amazing @geekgirl decided that she will personally put 42 Steems out of her own pockets to double the prizes, so I am very pleased to announce that...
THE TOTAL PRIZE POOL WILL BE 84 STEEMS !!!
First Prize (x1): 26 STEEMs
Runner Ups (x2): 14 STEEMs for each winner
Honorable Mentions (x5): 6 STEEMs for each winner
DELICIOUS PRIZES * ___ * !!!
I hope to see a lot of entries <3 Let's celebrate the CURRENT DECADE in #GAMING and make the FINAL ROUND a great BOSS BATTLE ?????!!!!!! \o/
(PS. a lot of people and curators are also paying attention to these contests, and there's always one, two, or a few entries that have been picked up by Curie or OCD curators in the past :D! Not guaranteeing anything, just pointing out a historical fact :D)
That's it for this post :D
