I’ve never read so many folk- or fairytales in my life. For the prompt ‘witch’ I wanted to go into old Nordic folklore, but I had a hard time finding something with a clear storyline and not just a description of witches. So - in the end I threw my love on the seawitch from H.C. Andersen’s The Little Mermaid. In the original text he writes: [She now came to a space of marshy ground in the wood, where large, fat water-snakes were rolling in the mire, and showing their ugly, drab-colored bodies. In the midst of this spot stood a house, built with the bones of shipwrecked human beings. There sat the sea witch, allowing a toad to eat from her mouth, just as people sometimes feed a canary with a piece of sugar. She called the ugly water-snakes her little chickens, and allowed them to crawl all over her bosom.] I am sure H.C. Andersen had a more unappealing creature in mind, but here is my version ✍🏻🐸 #drawingchallenge#folktaleweek2018#folktaleweek#folktale#fairytale#thelittlemermaid#hcandersen#hanschristianandersen#denmark#seawitch#seaserpent#toad#witch#eventyr#denlillehavfrue#fineliner#watercolor#art#illustration

For this little and quick sketch i really wanted to just translate directly a feeling of warm, love and trust through simple doodles and play of colors, tell me in the comments if you like it or love it! ❤🍯
So, I'm back home, and back to work.
Here's a little drawing I did at work, and the reason why I've been inactive for over 3 months. I was really in doubt about uploading it, since I don't really like to talk about my issues, I won't get into details, but I'll give a small explanation.
I've suffered from depression for more than half of my life. A few of years ago it went away, but last year it came back, and since then I didn't get better, I have felt the same, or worse, but I haven't got better at all. Last 6 months I've been going through lot of things and it has become even worse, to the point I don't even want to get out of bed I only want to sleep my life away. I am seeing a therapist but it hasn't helped me at all, I actually feel that speaking of my issues to someone does nothing but make the pain and the situation worse.
So, this drawing is something my therapist challenged me to do, the topic was to draw my interpretation of depression. So I just drew the first thing that came to my mind.
I can't say that I hope you like it, but at least I hope you find it interesting.
So, this actually gave me an idea, you can take the challenge too if you want, I would really like to see your works too, it doesn't have to be a monster or something like this drawing at all, and it doesn't have to be specifically depression, it can be a character, a background, or even something more abstract, however it has to represent an emotion.
As a final addition, my content won't change, I don't really like to draw this kind of things, it actually stresses me a lot.
I still enjoy drawing characters, especially female characters, and that will keep being my main contest, however, that doesn't mean I won't be uploading content of these style in the future, but it won't be the main topic.
Day 13 of #jadedraws: comic. Had to pay homage to the late, great Stan Lee. I’ve only recently gotten into the Marvel universe (you all know who was responsible for that). But the world that Mr. Lee created is very special to so many people I love, and now with my own interest peaking, it really is an amazing legacy that I’m very grateful to be able to explore, and even relate to. Thank you, Stan Lee. May you rest peacefully in the next universe. #stanlee#marvel#comic#doodle#drawingchallenge#november#excelsior#marvelcomics
I’ve never created a #drawthisinyourstyle event before and reaching 20k seemed like a good reason to have one! Here are the basics:
✨Redraw this character using your style and medium.
✨When posting, post your redraw first, then this image.
✨Be sure to tag with #alexgoldredraw so I (and others!) can find your masterpiece.
✨Optional: If you’d like, you can change the flower/leaves to your personal favorites! Also, feel free to change the color palette, background, pattern, gender, pose, etc. - just as long as it’s it still reflects this original image in some way 😊
✨Also optional: If you have an art friend in mind that you think would like this challenge, tag them in the comments below!
I’ll be featuring some of your redraws in my stories, and I’ll post my favorites to my feed on December 1st. HAVE FUN!!
#Folktaleweek day 1 : Forest
Landscapes are not my specialty but I'm pretty happy with this one :)
I realize that I'm less and less afraid to draw some, it's nice to see that I'm slowly getting out of my comfort zone.
Don't you think that this little house is too cute? ❤ I loved drawing it!
And thank you so MUCH for the 5k !😱😱😱 I am so grateful for you support!😭
I'd have to do something to celebrate 🤔 but after the folktaleweek 😅
See you tomorrow :)
#folktaleweek jour 1 : Forêt
Les paysages ne sont pas trop ma spécialité mais je suis assez contente de celui ci :)
Je me rends compte que j'ai de moins en moins peur d'en dessiner alors c'est chouette de réaliser que je sors peu à peu de ma zone de confort.
Ne trouvez-vous pas cette petite maison trop mignonne ? ❤ J'ai adoré la dessiner !
Et merci MILLE pour les 5 mille abonnés ! 😱😱😱 Je suis tellement reconnaissante !😭
Il faudrait que je fasse quelque chose pour fêter ça 🤔 après la folktaleweek 😅
A demain pour la suite :)
