Not sure if it's okay to make a thread for this, but since I didn't get the chance to participate in Inktober due to taking a really complicated class (which I'm no longer taking hah!), I wanted to do a second challenge in order to make myself get back into gear. This was originally just a small thing I did for Twitter, but I wanted to make a thread here as well for other people to post in if they'd like.

So here's the/an OCember thread if anyone else wants to participate. The whole focus of this challenge is to flesh out old characters while also designing new ones (since if you don't have a character that meets a prompt, you get to design a new one). I know that the prompt I made is extremely specific which can be a problem for some, I'm gonna change this around in the future with more vague prompts so that there's more legroom for creativity. So with that being said, you can of course follow your own like with Inktober-- just as long as you're consistently doing something every day.

Here's the prompt that I made if you choose to follow it (and you absolutely don't have to!):

I didn't want to follow another month-long challenge so soon but this one caters to my narcissistic needs.

Awesome prompt by the way, well done! Can I do quick portraits/half-bodies all December though? I kinda want to study faces and all that.

Here's an attempt for a late day 1. Current favorite because I still think this hairstyle is rad.

Of course! You're free to do whatever you like, as long as the goal is to improve so that we all improve together

Ooh, I really like the colours you picked-- especially for the hair *o*

This one speaks to me as a fellow anti-pants - at least when not in the vicinity of others.

Unless those are pants and in that case this is awkward.

Made it to day 2 so I'll probably stick around for the long run! Day 2 is an old favorite and I used to like the color palette until I became a zealous believer of not-very-saturated colors since the past year or two.

Day three.

Not sure if he looks that much embarrassed rather than just plain pissed off. Oh well.

Day 3 - The prompt is "an OC embarassed" so I opted for a more "haha, you caught me" moment. My coloring and proportions are starting to get weird so I'll try to get photo references next time.

Yeah! His name is Credits, he's the childhood friend of my main OC, Jun.

As someone who is working on his own series, this is something that is perfect for me. So, let me get in on this.

Day 1 - Current Favorite OC
This would go to my main character, Minta.

I do want to ask though, are these works that you made in the past before the challenge, or are you making them brand-new in correspondence to each day? Because I do want to clarify that the whole point of the challenge is to draw a new art every day, otherwise this would be a thumbshare thread and those aren't generally accepted here because of redundancy.

My apologies if that's not the case though-- I just want to make sure.

I do this all the time. This is totally normal and I refuse to add this to my list of weird behaviors.

So to prove a point, here's a very late day 4 - I forgot to do one yesterday because my schedule hates me. This isn't exactly the "newest", but in terms of story and concept, this is quite recent and one of the furthest from what I tend to do - humanizing creature designs is apparently rather difficult.

They are each very new works. The Minta picture I drew yesterday and the Archie picture was two days ago.

Aw, I feel that. I tried participating in this year's Inktober but I only got to like day 2 or 3 before I couldn't continue. ;o; I didn't realize how much of a commitment it takes to do an artwork every day, even when cutting some corners to get them done on time.

Day 5 - I was still in the mood of drawing monstrous designs so for "alternate outfit" I used this star-nosed mole dude which I never actually drew without some kind of mask or helmet. Looking at reference images, the actual creature is as creepy as I always imagined.
