My first #3110ArtChallenge piece: Child’s Play!
Obviously, I’ve simplified a lot of it in order to make it look like an animated movie. The background is also pretty weak, but hey ho.

The Halloween #3110ArtChallenge

Here’s larks.

Fellow artists (and non-artists), I have a challenge for you. With Halloween coming up, we’re probably going to be filled with the urge to come up with horror illustrations, but how to decide what to draw?

Simple! Here are the rules of the Halloween 31:10 Art Challenge:

  1. Pick a horror movie
  2. Pause at 31 minutes and 10 seconds (that’s how we Brits parse dates, US folk)
  3. Draw what you see, in whatever style you like
  4. If the shot is rubbish, choose another movie
  5. Post it on Twitter, Tumblr, Instagram et al, with the hashtag #3110ArtChallenge

And that’s it! You can post the original screenshot if you like, for contrast.

Feel free to share this around, it’ll be more fun the more entries we receive.

Last one for the Turtles. For the record, the reason I’ve been doing these (and will be doing similar drawings using felt tip pens soon) is that I’m experimenting with fixed line weights and drawing with neither reference nor planning. My inspiration is a memory of bootleg t-shirts featuring Turtles (or similarly themed characters) which were on sale from tat* shops where I grew up, circa 1990. 
Despite the awful appearance and shoddy workmanship, there was something about them that appeals to me now (not then). I’m effectively trying to recreate bootleg work.
*Tat, as in cheap and badly made novelty items, not tattoos.

I am aware how awful these are. That’s kind of the point.
