Day one of the October daily drawing challenge, “Ignis!” I’m using the Obscutober III prompt list

Day three, “pareidolia, the perception of significant patterns or faces in random or accidents arrangements of shapes and lines”

Posting a very quick day 5, I may do it in watercolor if I get home in time. “mesmeric, causing a person to become completely transfixed and unaware of anything else around them”

My hands aren’t very steady tonight so this is as good as it gets! Day 6, “vertigo, a sensation of whirling and loss of balance associated with looking down from a great height,” and day 7, “zephyr, a soft gentle breeze.”

Day 8, “haze, an aggregation in the atmosphere of very fine widely dispersed solid and/or liquid particles, giving the air an opalescent appearance that subdues colors”

day 9, “numinous,” spoilers for The Ritual 

Day 9, “numinous: supernatural, mysterious, filled with a sense of the presence of divinity”

Day 10, “selcouth: strange, unusual, rare, marvelous, wondrous”

Who else could that be but platybelodon


Day 11, “dreeblissa, the feeling of happiness towards someone in real life because of something good they did in your dream.”

Day 13, “demersal, chiefly of fish living close to the floor of the sea or a lake”

Day 14, “nyctophany.” I couldn’t find it in a dictionary so, “nycto-,” meaning night, and “-phany,” meaning “appearance/manifestation,” so here’s a painting inspired by a scene in the Green Knight (word nerds please chime in if you know a better definition, some of these words are extremely obscure)
