X!Gloop Month Daily Drawing 10: As A Magical Girl
by ReinderDijkhuis
X!Gloop as a magical girl, but mostly nude

Prompt #10 was "As a Magical Girl or Boy". X!Gloop has had many lives, only a few of which have been documented. In at least one of these lives, he was magical.

(I had no idea what I was doing with this, and then I ran out of time. But it got done.)
X!Gloop Month Daily Drawing 9: Dancing

For Prompt #9, Dancing, here's Skolp and Ahasper dancing on the bridge of Ahasper's space vessel. Ahasper's from a clothes-wearing culture and is uncomfortable being fully nude in the presence of someone she's not intimate with, so she gets a little skirt/shawl to wear even after several weeks at close quarters with a guy who is always nude.

The spaceship bridge is based on Tonto, the famous giant synthesizer. If I had a whole day, I'd make it a lot more detailed.
X!Gloop Month Daily Drawing 8: Sleepy

This was actually Prompt #6 in the drawing challenge, but I misread because I've been very sleep-deprived. That still hasn't improved despite me sleeping in tonight, and in all honesty, this one is here just to tick the box and say I haven't missed a day. That sometimes happens.

That being said, I realized that I haven't really done a lot of work on Skolp's house on the mud planet Ortentrum IV. One moment he's outside dragging the ooze creature to safety, the next he's in his living room with Ahaspar sitting on the couch. I think perhaps his house should have been a barrel-shaped tiny house like in a video my wife showed me the other day featuring a guy in Australia who builds them like that.
X!Gloop Month Daily Drawing 7: With a New Hairstyle

I looked at prompt #7: "With a New Hairstyle" and I thought I might as well. If I were to design X!Gloop from scratch now, he might wear something like this. I'm sure that at this exact moment in time, the look is already on its way out - the last time I saw it referenced was in a dreadful Will Self piece about people in their forties. But it would still work as a look for X!Gloop, who never was quite at the cutting edge of fashion.

In the previous blog entry, I mentioned I was suffering from sleep deprivation. This has been causing me to make many smaller and larger mistakes during the working week, and it's also caused me to pick the wrong prompts from the list. This was actually prompt #8, the previous one was prompt #7, and I skipped the actual #6, which was "Sleepy", ironically. I will draw that one next and I'm sure I'll be able to put quite a bit of feeling into it.
X!Gloop Month Daily Drawing 6: In formal dress

Prompt #6: In Formal Dress. An opportunity to re-imagine X!Gloop's outfit from the one-pager Esklop and the Buggerized Hyphens from 1989 or 1990. The pose wasn't that inspired and I didn't feel like adding a background; I have been suffering from fatigue this week due to interrupted sleep. However, I practiced my texturing in Sketchbook a little.
