How I record my desk:

Yes, I actually use a chair to keep the tripod from falling over, on the desk.

These pictures are 2 years old, from when I was working on my QWERTY t-shirt
qwerty-00.jpg
This time I used a different chair because I was sitting on the one from the picture.

Ok Inktober done, time for some thoughts

I wrote this:

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.
We'll see.
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
I thought
it is actually cool how people doing this together inspire and motivate each other!

I thought
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.

Then,
fanart event!

I think
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.

Zules says
she likes my fanart
and asks
if I know inktober?
if I will join inktober?

I think
I will not
but then
I realise
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

Somehow
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.

The prompts.
a limit to freedom as I can not do anything I want
but I must make something RELATED
That's GOOD

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.

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.

I also wanted to type out some of my thoughts regarding Inktober, but doing Inktober has me too exhausted. LOL. What a pickle.

And now........... I really want to ask you..................................
"Hey do you want to do 3December with me?" and continue the narrative.
But I already authorized @Rateus and everybody else to stop me if I try to do that. (Although I really do like 3December a lot better than Inktober, and it's less prompts since they don't make you do all 31 days.)

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.
