Dragon’s Bane was one of the saddest DA:I achievements.
The Nuckelavee! The current creature feature in the fearsome Unwinnable #75 Bestiary. Bestiary is the brainchild of Stu Horvath (EIC of Unwinnable) who kindly invited me to create some work for the magazine.
Inktober is over for another year. It was an interesting exercise in endurance, consistency, technique, and creativity—all of which I need to work harder on! Good habit formation is possibly the hardest part of being creative, and I’m working on that.

This has been an interesting experience, so far. It’s less about the quality of the work (although it is nice when pieces come out better than expected), and more about the discipline and habit-forming process of drawing each day, regardless of whether the muse is ‘in’, or not. Certainly this represents the highest turnover of work that I have done in a long time, and I’m happy about that.
In the desert
I saw a creature, naked, bestial,
Who, squatting upon the ground,
Held his heart in his hands,
And ate of it.
I said: ‘Is it good, friend?’
‘It is bitter-bitter,’ he answered;
‘But I like it
Because it is bitter,
And because it is my heart.’
—In the desert, Stephen Crane, 1895
