So…as you can see, I have completely abandoned Inktober. The reason? Well… it simply fell to the wayside as I read some more books (including Return of the King), and finally saw Frodo deliver the Ring into the Cracks of Doom.
I was like, “Wow! I just spent a whole lot of time reading this story and the climax was Frodo having a short fight with Gollum, Gollum getting the Ring, and falling into the Cracks of Doom. For a strange reason all of Middle-earth shook, and then some Black Gates fell because of the earthquake. Wow.”
The reason I may not care about when the Ring got dropped into the Cracks was probably because I don’t care for Frodo. Now, I’m not trying to spark an argument, but in my opinion, Bilbo is the best hobbit ever. I’m very attached to him. I was also extremely sad when Bag End was sold. And to the Sackville-Bagginses of all people. >.<
However, this post is not a rant about Bilbo, this was about Toothless sketches! And also my life. You just got a glimpse of my life in the LOTR fandom world.
Anyway, if you only came to view my sketches, they are right here. When I want to practice Toothless, I go online and find interesting poses to add to my repertoire of poses.
Most of these were from various screenshots, some that you may recognize. Others were from various fanart works that I thought had a nice pose.
Yeah… they’re okay, but what I REALLY need to practice is his wings. They are hard for me to get into perspective.
When I look up “how to draw wings” tutorials, I find “bats have so many digits” and “a bird wings looks like this”. I know that, but what I want is how to draw them other than from the side and from the top.
When I look up “images of Toothless’ wings” I find images of “how to make Toothless costumes”. I don’t even celebrate Halloween, due to it originating from All Hallow’s Day, where people worshiped satanic stuff. However, if I did, I would obviously cosplay as Cat Noir.
Also, in case anyone’s wondering, that presentation I was preparing for turned out great! A number of my other friends were also presenting things to this certain audience, and they did great as well.
One of my friends,K, did a cupcake analogy. She obviously used cupcakes for it, and had burned a cupcake on purpose for it. I told my other friend, C, who was watching the presentation with me, “Nice brownie.” I thought that it was a cupcake brownie, because I’ve seen some of those. C then proceeded to tell me it was a cupcake. I simply assumed it was a chocolate cupcake, but I found out it was a burnt vanilla cupcake as I watched someone eat it afterwards. It was extremely burned. I have an exciting life at times.
Anyway, this is just an update on my life and some drawings.
