So much has changed in one year, yet it’s hard to know even where to begin to explain.
I have hopes that being in my current situation with limited art supplies, no scanner, and no decent digital software yet having a whole new world to discover and pull inspiration from, my art will benefit immensely.
That’s my hope, at least. It’s the kind of hoping one feels looking outside a window, thinking about going outside, but wondering whether it’s too cold or not.
There’s snow on the mountains already! This gets me excited and makes me want to dig out my massive collection of scarves. It’s finally my favorite time of the year!
I love snow. But, I don’t like the wind that often comes with snow. It makes my hair too messy. Even people with short hair can not escape the wind.
Ink on paper, then colored up in Photoshop.
Being the lazy artist I am, I’ve never actually done Inktober before. But I realized that I know quite a few brilliant writers who take part in the yearly Nanowrimo (next month!), I decided that drawing 31 ink drawings in one month is not nearly as much work as a 50,000 word novel.
Or maybe it is, who knows. Though, I am running a bit behind in Inktober, to be honest, but that’s mainly because I had the flu for a short while and was being all around tired with work and such.
I may eventually post all the drawings, but here are the highlights so far.
Markers are still something I’m fairly new to, especially copic markers.
But, I’ll use any excuse to draw something sort of fun for the sake of “practice”.
Also, today is my birthday, so that’s another excuse to draw something not too serious.
I’m not dead (not yet, at least), but feeling rather frozen when it comes to my art.
I need a reboot of inspiration, or a good kick in the pants, whichever comes first.
