FEBRUARY CONTEST: NIGHTFALL
Daniel Grissom last edited by
This is my first illustration submission. It's a bit of a different style from most of the work on here, but I love this community, the podcasts, the courses, feedback, etc, so I thought I'd start entering the monthly contests. I considered adding color but decided to keep it in black and white. It was done originally in pen and ink, traditionally, then I scanned it and added a few digital revisions.
It's about the things we try to protect our kids from, their imaginings at night, sure, but more powerfully, the hurt of the world. As a foster parent, this is something I experience a lot-- trying to shield these little ones from further trauma.

Here's my first ever entry - created with watercolour and oil pastels. My image is part of a story about a boy who has gone to bed poorly. Illustration is not something I'm used to doing so it will be a learning curve for me - looking forward to getting out of my comfort zone though and trying all the classes and joining in the forum.

I got started a bit late this month so I opted to go with a simple design. Hope you guys like it! I intended to paint a city, but for some reason, the countryside always comes out!

Wow, so many awesome entries, again! Thanks everyone who voted on my poll. Appreciate it. Here's my final piece.
The thief snickered at how easy it was to break into the mansion at nightfall. The garage was left wide open. He snatched and looted stealthily, stuffing his backpack. Grinning, he slipped out the front door. And met his worst nightmare - Super Skunk.

Here’s my February entry. I changed it up last minute because I couldn’t seem to get my first idea right. Good luck everyone!

I happened to be working on a night time piece before even knowing the theme! It was fun to practice hand lettering!
(Edit: Almost blew it, left my jewelry and pink layer off. Need to double check things, I was so excited.)
Went for a full spread this time.
So many amazing entries.. With each contest everyone just gets better and better.

Hello, I'm new to the forum. This is my first post and submission to the monthly contest. This is my entry- Mission Objective: Save Squizzard. by Paul Terpstra @paul_gt4.09.23
This is an idea from the midpoint of a comic ill work on one day. The idea is these characters have previously escaped. But now must return to save their friend before its too late. I haven't painted a night time scene before so was excited for the challenge. Learnt that I defiantly need more practice at it. But very happy with what I've done.
I worked on this traditionally in watercolour. I dont have a scanner and getting a photo of this was a nightmare. Some of it is cut on the edges to fit.
Comments welcome. Have enjoyed seeing others entries and watching others process. I've been too busy to get involved on the forum. But I hope to get more into in soon.
