October MotD 2012

It’s about time again for October and Monster of the Day. I’m going to change things up in an attempt to complete an entire month of monsters. Instead of a single new monster each day, I will choose one monster for a each week and work on it for half an hour to an hour every day until the end of the week. This process starts Monday, October 1st at approximately 9pm EST. I will also Ustream some of them if I can get it all set up and feel confident enough about showing everyone my process. I haven’t decided on a monster yet for week one but I’m thinking of starting with a base idea, growing and changing it each day. I’m completely open to suggestions but please be somewhat more creative than zombies.

Update: After some fussing around with Ustream and with help from some friends from Twitter, I’m going with Twitch.tv to stream this mess come October. Here’s my Twitch.tv url. Keep an eye out on Twitter if this sounds like something you want to spend your evenings watching, I’ll be posting when the stream is live.

Thanks! Here’s to a great October!
