Inktober 2017

Well,  it was an attempt anyway. I was working massive Overtime during October and my ideas became so ambitious that I simply ran out of time to do a drawing every single day. Half way through I decided to start combining themes to catch up, which made for some fun and interesting experiments.

For my first Inktober, I chose to do a list that consisted of  mythical creatures, and I reverted back to  ink on paper. There were so many pros to switching back to traditional drawing for me. For a long time I had been in an artistic  block - never able to finish what I started. The idea of making an illustration 'perfect' also resulted in me never being satisfied enough to finish any art.  This whole exercise forced me to finish a drawing even if it was imperfect. The results were great. It kickstarted my art again, and I was able to progress.
