This last year and a half really knocked me out of my art game. Sometimes life gets richer and more complicated in good ways, but it doesn't mean they're not challenging too. I'm trying to adapt to a life where a lot of the time I used to have is being parceled out differently. There's also the emotional ups and downs of having a new baby... again! (For anyone who has been following me for a while... bless your patience.... that's three now). All that to say, art took a backseat and parenting and house ownership and gardening filled up it's space. As I'm writing this I'm thinking this would be better as a journal post. I'll leave it here too and copy it for anyone looking for an update.
I've always wanted to join in the inktober shenanigans but never had the confidence I could produce work quickly enough. As I'm writing this I'm about four days behind, not counting the prompts I skipped, so maybe there was something to that concern. But it's more drawing than I've done in a long time now so I'm so happy I'm trying.
My kids and I played through the Kings Quest series this summer, and it inspired me to limit the scope of my submissions to just Sierra Game related drawings. So if you're an old timer like me and you love those old parser games BUCKLE UP.
This was for Day 2; Wisp. My first and only thought was of the Will o' Wisps that inhabit the swamp near Mordavia. If you're not familiar, they're childish and playful and you can use sweets from the shop in town to draw them to you. Their light helps reveal some hidden things in the darker parts of the swamp... just try to remember to let them go again before daybreak.
