Ookla the Lad

Fadran will certainly try to Inktober

9 posts in this topic

Hello there!

I was coerced into doing Inktober along with all the folks who can actually do art, so I guess you'll get to better appreciate their works by juxtaposition. I'm already eleven days late, and likely will find myself falling behind a few times, but that's okay!

I'm also planning on writing on a bit of lore for each drawing. Maybe they'll be in the same universe or something; idk yet.

Anyways, thanks for putting up with my scud! Enjoy!

Okay! I finally have drawings to show off. Days one through five.

Day 1: Crystal

Spoiler

Even for a drone hard-wired for quick analysis and reaction, PH-EL wasn't so sure what to think of this anomaly.

Crystal.jpeg.42824ef5bd5f96aee8e2d19947618240.jpeg

This one's probably the best you'll see on this thread. It's inspired by a number of factors, including the Crystal Mines from Hollow Knight, Lanayru Mining Facility from Skyward Sword, and Wall-E, the best Pixar movie. I was thinking about having a little crystal mushroom fren living in his cave, then thought, but would the capitalists care about the little crystal mushroom frens? So I added mining robots.

Day 2: Suit

Spoiler

'Jack of all trades' was the title he preferred best. Doing whatever he wanted to do was a talent of his.

Suit.jpeg.d8fb91189160c5f26c0b54388733010e.jpeg

I... don't like this one. Is human. Wearing a suit. 'nuff said.

Day 3: Vessel

Spoiler

Smoke rolled from the hills, emenating from the hollow rods of metal so deliberately forced into the mountainside. They relentlessly defended the shrine to the forest spirits; the last survivor of a land they'd built their machines into, whose forest grew no more.

Vessel.jpeg.cf6873ff4fd02694c6b665a99b4437d0.jpeg

I partially don't like this one 'cause it has a lot of third grader war drawing vibes, but I guess it's decent? I was thinking about the whole post-apocalyptic vibe that Studio Ghibli really likes working with, and decided to do something similar with the machines guarding the shrine to the land they'd destroyed to be built upon.

Day 4: Knot

Spoiler

One girl, the ribbon not yet taken out of her hair, had somehow survived the carnage. The walls to their gateway had crumbled, and their home blown to ashes. She wasn't crying yet; I wouldn't either, if such things had happened to me so suddenly.

Knot.jpeg.cc0e1a9ab93262fe93dbbb43016b3a74.jpeg

Another human! Is bad. And also I guess knot = bow = ribbon, so there's that. Her house has been destroyed! By what? I don't know.

Day 5: Raven

Spoiler

A lone raven remained guarding the shrine of his god. The Word was tarnished and cracked, but was still legible. Whether or not water still flowed from the spring was unclear; it had rained recently, so the sides were filled anyways.

Raven.jpeg.4e9d3540c33c8aeacde1e7d63902a4ae.jpeg

Is a birb. Is an okay-looking birb. I decided to pack some more lore into this sucker; don't ask me what the lore is, though. 'Cause not even I know yet.

Sorry for the low-quality photos! I'm drawing this on the backs of notecards because all my doodles are always tiny, and I opted to use flash instead of getting weird phone shadows above these guys, so... yeah. There're my excuses.

OKAY!!! The last post was edited with real images this time. In other news I have caught up with the dates so there will be a lot of entries this post:

Day 6: Spirit

Spoiler

Under the shadow of the Great Mountain God, the likes of the littler spirits here and there often went ignored. But for some reason--perhaps by a twinkling of fate--a young girl noticed this little earthene today.

Spirit.jpeg.f19de0905a35aa1e981e075ceaa27c76.jpeg

One of my best, I think! Perspective's a little whack, but I think it's cute.

Day 7: Fan

Spoiler

The wind had stopped blowing. He brought in servants to fan him as he worked instead.

Wind.jpeg.03a030f07e964b2475a4632fd80f028e.jpeg

This one's... eh. It exists.

Day 8: Watch

Spoiler

Not even sleep was a reprieve from the horrors.

Watch.jpeg.fcc0f82fd9e3c60de86cf31b3474eb7e.jpeg

It's an eyeball. That's it.

Day 9: Pressure

Spoiler

The trolley ran along roughly, jostling the people crowded inside.

Pressure.jpeg.0026ec36c8c9508fc5527bcb40634108.jpeg

I like this one! It looks... decent.

Day 10: Pick

Spoiler

Just a quick stop along the path for a breather and a snack. She placed an offering--a length of ribbon--before moving on.

Pick.jpeg.d12bea14136b56a9b91a65774da8f73c.jpeg

I think this one's cute too. That's... about it.

Day 11: Sour

Spoiler

Even earthene got hungry sometimes.

Sour.jpeg.a2572cfbc8ce3947aeb853e895b292c2.jpeg

Is pebble spirit boi. With lemon.

Day 12: Stuck

Spoiler

A cry came from up the mountain, and a hand from a pile of rubble.

Stuck.jpeg.4ba7575d1c4a4e3057810d265c658fb1.jpeg

*Metalgear ! noise*

Day 13: Roof

Spoiler

The rain poured outside the cave relentlessly, but they were fine beyond the entrance. In the light of the fire, she tried to locate the source of her new friend's pain.

Roof.jpeg.513db00908137611957feb60b0660809.jpeg

Just some frens around a fire in a cave in the rain. Nothing much else to say here.

Day 14: Tick

Spoiler

The clock was still running.

Did you mean I know knot?

'Tis not a question of if Fadran will post but rather a question of when.

Day 15: Helmet

Spoiler

His parents, too, had been destroyed by the fires of conflict; both long before he'd known them.

Helmet.jpg.fedb1cd70ef184e0b18c5ade78a16a5a.jpg

I had a lot of fun with  s q u i g g l e s  for this one.

Day 16: Compass

Spoiler

He had on him a compass. It didn't point north, but rather to the end of the horizon, where he'd been heading for weeks.

Compass.jpg.49e87142d63b00e0459637efc8f8f19c.jpg

LOOK AWAY. This one's terrible.

Day 17: Collide

Spoiler

At the edge of the mountains was a shock: an army of forest sprites, armed with nothing more than sharpened sticks, standing down a sea of machines.

Collide.jpg.9240fed4cd43d88b35dd834c6859b2d3.jpg

Princess Mononoke is the best and as such I had to draw some inspiration from it.

Day 18: Moon

Spoiler

The moon was still shining from behind the smoke; dimmed, but still there.

Moon.jpg.6132fe9e7df80832627f54093b7a6209.jpg

Let's pretend that anything in this boi looks decent, okay?

Day 19: Sprout

Spoiler

Where each sprite had fallen a sprig of leaves grew. He reached down to examine one, a false frown of pity across his face.

Sprout.jpg.164437ee2fad4e0f1d51074bb69b4141.jpg

LOOK AWAY. This one's also terrible.

Day 20: Loop

Spoiler

They took shelter in an old, abandoned mine; near the entrance, where the trolleys would run.

Loop.jpg.e356dcee8f1533fa2425581ab3167a19.jpg

This one's... okay, I guess. It's two people from behind in a train roundabout room.

Day 21: Fuzzy

Spoiler

They opted to explore the once-mines deeper, to see if there was anyone at all left here.

Fuzzy.jpg.33381d5ba9aa29936148ac2813f80d4e.jpg

Yeah, mushroom spores can be... fuzzy. I think.
