I'm so excited for the LAAAST DAY and this challenge to be DOOONE
*cries in not being done*
I heard about inktober before.bicyclesonthemoon said:This will be my first attempt at Inktober ever.
I'm afraid but I will try.
How much will I actually draw?
How good will it be?
Will my fingers be completely dirty from ink like most times I draw with pens?
I have no idea.
Thanks for typing out your thoughts! I really like your tendency to journal things out. A good bit of cognitive digestion. It's good for the forum's stomach.Ok Inktober done, time for some thoughts
I wrote this:
I heard about inktober before.
I have probably even looked at this thread.
I had no plans of doing anything with inktober.
Some months ago
before I even knew this forum
I have seen an inktober thread somewhere
it is actually cool how people doing this together inspire and motivate each other!
It would be cool do do something like this
but I didn't have anyone to do this with
no source of inspiration or motivation
I doubted by ink art skills
and inktober time was months away
Then I come to here Cresnov
It's one of the situation where discovering one thing
unlocks discovering of multiple other new things
One of them is Extra!
I read it.
I like it.
I have never done fanarts before
but maybe it would be nice to try?
I look through the comic for what to draw.
I decide to make the directors + van drawing.
she likes my fanart
if I know inktober?
if I will join inktober?
I will not
I'm at a realistic possibility of getting into a situation I previously thought would be cool but unrealistic
And It's just after the fanart event where I was very successful and happy with what I done
and in the recent times I was getting a lot of positive feedback for my drawing from multiple people.
and I was participating in some drawing games which I liked.
Ok it actually makes a lot of sense to try inktobering this year here.
OK I WILL DO IT
I didn't make big plans.
My attitude was more like
ok whatever, we'll see what will happen
So I did not assume that I must do every day's drawing and do it during that day.
I did not assume any level of quality
Just try and see the outcome
I knew this would require some time.
But again, like with the minecraft game
this is a time limited event,
so there is a deadline after which it will not take any of my time any more.
Some days I come home late and I do not have much time
my idea was to just do something in low effort mode.
THAT'S NOT HOW IT WORKS
When I have an idea for what to draw
I want to do it as best as I can!
So it takes more time and effort than expected.
That's how I work.
When I'm seriously creating something
I WANT TO DO IT WELL
I managed to do the inktobers every day.
I see a lot of progress and self improvement!
Now I look at my creations
and I see things that just one month ago I would never expect I would be able to make.
The interaction here.
Getting feedback from others
Seeing your creations
It was inspiring
It was motivating
Also I really liked the arts posted here.
a limit to freedom as I can not do anything I want
but I must make something RELATED
Because I'm forced to try draw things I'm less comfrotable with
Also it involves creativity to come up with something I like and it fits the word.
and the words are in English so it's a trigger to look for multiple meanings of the word, that I might not be immediately familiar with.
I'm happy that I could be a part of this.
That makes me so happy to hear! I want this to be the best kind of social media, that lets people grow together and support one another.I'm happy you were too, and I'm happy that being here is improving your life. I feel like it's improved mine too. Thanks to Zules for creating the space and brings us together and to everyone else for being so wholesome and welcoming.
