Inktober Ends: Week Four in Review

And that’s that, it’s the end of the month, the end of Inktober. It’s a weird mix of feelings, relief at the end of time pressures, sadness at the end of the community and joy at having completed the challenge.

This last week (and a little bit) flew by and was full of fun prompts.

One notable pick from this week was to revisit a witch I’ve drawn before, which to me only meant one witch. It was a picture that I drew around four years ago when I was working nights and tired but I was so proud of it and still am! It helped me see that I could achieve what I wanted to if I only put the work in. And now, having revisited it I see that even more. Being able to see the change is motivating, so if you are having trouble with any creative endeavour look back on something you made some time ago and focus on the improvements.

LB got up to some cute shenanigans over the week. I really enjoy drawing him just living, enjoying his little life and having fun with his friends. As conceited as it may sound I love the characters and find them very cute. That’s what I’m trying to focus on, things that I enjoy, fun things that keep me going back to drawing, that’s what these have taught me.

So that’s it for this Inktober journey, it was challenging, informative and fun. I made some artist friends who were going through the same things and I hope that after the haze of Inktober fades I will make many more!

Inktober Continues: Week Three in Review

Another week has gone by in the blink of an eye and so we have arrived at my third review. This week my brain became scrambled quite early on! I have no idea how it happened, but I misread a prompt from my digital list and created a completely unneeded illustration. Though I felt extremely embarrassed at the time, it allowed me to create a piece to catch up with which I was really pleased.

My favourite of my traditional Inktober pieces were two connected drawings. They were just silly pictures that were easy interpretations of the prompts but by golly gosh they were fun and (I think) very cute!

This next picture is my favourite of the week! It felt a bit cheat-y and I loved it! Creating digital art is still very new to me and the little things make me giddy. So the prompt was twin witches and it wasn’t long before the idea of bookends came to mind and voila! I copied and flipped the sketch of one twin, so it was easy to then add details that made them different.

So that was pretty much my week, filled with art and checking with J.A that I had read the prompts right.
