Flying on Confidence




Introducing Character Drawcember!

This is a series of drawing prompts I designed for myself to get into a better rhythm of art production and also to think in depth about my characters. I’m posting this in case anyone else would like to work through the list too! 🙂 I purposefully designed the workload to be relatively relaxed, since December is a busy month for a lot of people, myself included.

RULES: Use whatever of your own characters you want to use. You can stick to the same couple of characters or use all different ones. Any medium, and they don’t have to be consistent in style or technique. Basically there are no rules, just use this as a fun opportunity to work on your cast of characters. If you do decide to do this challenge, use the tag Character Drawcember!

WEEK ONE (Dec 1-7)


…a protagonist

…an antagonist

…an old character you don’t use anymore, and then redesign them.

Finish one of these into a full-color piece.

WEEK TWO (Dec 8-14)


…the inside of your character’s room.

…your character as a child, adult, and senior.

…an alternate universe version of one of your characters.

Finish one of these into a full-color piece.

WEEK THREE (Dec 15-21)


…a big group shot of your characters.

…a fake screenshot, as if your characters had their own movie

…your character’s favorite place

Finish one of these into a full-color piece.

WEEK FOUR (Dec 22-28)


…your character in someone else’s style (credit who you were inspired by!)

…three different outfits for your character

…free day- you choose what to draw with your character

CATCHUP (Dec 29-31)

If you’re not done yet (it’s okay!!), use this extra time to finish!

Aww heck yeah!


we should do this.

Yes. Yes. And yes again.

Then we’re freakin’ DOING THIS!

therealkillthetraitor said: How chilled out do you want to go? Did you want to stay within the rock/metal genres, or are you looking to branch out?

Also: ersters

I’m thinking of branching out. Like, cooler metal like AC/DC or other genres like pop, maybe some acoustic, typical summertime sounds, maybe some hip-hop… In my list I’ve got Get Lucky, which I think has a pretty feel-good sound to it. 

Bubblegum, bubblegum, in a dish,

how many pieces do you wish?

Diazomethane, Ketene, Pentaborane

Diazomethane: If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I would learn how to debate with others with enough fluency to win them over 99% of the time.  Yup.

Ketene: What is something you learned in the last week?

I’ve learned what having homework REALLY means.  As a homeschooler through high school, all of my work was done at home.  At New Market there was light homework each day one year I was there.  This year, as a college student… well, completely different story.  And it’s not fun! Lol

Pentaborane: What is one habit of yours that no one knows about?

Well, I don’t think most people know that I’m a night owl… I tend to stay up really late all the time.
