Inktober 2017 – Week Three

Time has been my enemy on this third week of Inktober.  I feel like I’ve been attempting different things with varying degrees of failure and success. It’s obvious to me that I need more practice with elements such as human anatomy, light and shadow and composition.  So basically everything.  I’ve also felt like I don’t have enough time to create the drawings I want, or even to explore what I’m weak at, so my drawings feel simple and rushed and I miss glaring mistakes.  It’s easy to feel bad about it, throw up papers and declare my art sucks, but I’ll just keep plugging away.

Inktober 2017 – Week Two

I’m in the second week of Inktober, and it’s in full swing. I’ve observed elsewhere that leading up to this month, the idea of participating in Inktober was intimidating to me.

Inktober 2017 – Week One

Inktober 2017 is looking amazing this year, with over a million posts shared so far according to the founder of the challenge, Jake Parker.  I’m glad to be participating this year.

As I’ve said before, Inktober gives me an excuse to break out of digital art for a month and use traditional tools like pencils, paper and ink.  In 2015, when I last participated, I had a small sketch book, a few micron pens and would just draw fan art on the couch. Read more

Sketchbook – Reddit Keeps Getting Drawn

I’m having a small flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome, and a mild dip in inspiration/motivation for a little bit there.  I’ve still found some time to draw before being completely burned out.  Also, catching up with “The Walking Dead” and taking in “The Crown” on Netflix has eaten up a bit of my spare time.  Does this mean we’ll be seeing more British Royalty fan art popping up in the near future? Aside from an Anne Boleyn piece I’ve put aside months ago, not bloody likely.
