August 2014 Roundup

Have you missed some of my creative updates over the last month? I'm doing monthly roundups to try to keep some sense in the chaos!

August was publicly another fairly slow month. I had a whirlwind of family activities, and much of my creative time was on work that I won't be able to share until the big coloring book reveal (next week! Eek!). But a few things did trickle out:


Off the Clock: http://www.tornworld.net/artpageview.php?id=440
(nudity, but nothing showing!)

I did four pieces for Sketch Fest - three of them for my Sketch Tarot project: http://ellenmillion.livejournal.com/1462644.html

04 - The Emporer: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/sketchtarot/04emperor.jpg
05 - The Heirophant: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/sketchtarot/05heirophant.jpg
06 - The Lovers: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/sketchtarot/06lovers.jpg

And a piece for an Elfquest fanclub: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/sketchfest54-04-unbreakablelove.jpg
(very rough, and what was I THINKING, trying to cram five figures in an ACEO?)

I also published three old concept pieces at Torn World:

The Overlook: http://www.tornworld.net/artpageview.php?id=394
Yet More Snowie Sketches: http://www.tornworld.net/artpageview.php?id=457
Snow Kiss: http://www.tornworld.net/artpageview.php?id=387


I re-wrote the Empire article for Torn World: http://www.tornworld.net/settingpageview.php?id=25

A metafiction article about 'Future Fiction' was posted to Torn World: http://www.tornworld.net/settingpageview.php?id=303 (it's the Empire's version of science fiction!)

A new article at Torn World about Northern Foods: http://www.tornworld.net/settingpageview.php?id=294


The August Patreon perk was a bundle of 3 photographs that I took during my summer class, sized for wallpapers and Facebook headers.

Favorite Guppy photo from the month: http://hotlink.ellenmilliongraphics.com/ellen/baby/knitting.jpg

It rained a lot, I was ridiculously social (for me), and I worked on getting coloring books in order for the Kickstarter I'll be releasing next week. I'm looking forward to September!
