Once again, Inktober is over, and overall it was pretty good. As with last year's drawings, I made a lot of mistakes but I'm happy with a lot of the pieces, and the point of the challenge is to improve, not to make perfect drawings, so I did okay. I made major errors on days 7 and 28, which meant I had to salvage what I could, and was close to giving up a couple of times. A lot of my original ideas went out the window, so I may use them for other drawings in the future. A common theme in my drawings from 2016 was a lack of background detail, so I tried to focus more on the backgrounds and environments this time around. I had days when I started too late to do what I had planned, and there were other days when I couldn't settle on an idea; I combined the official prompts again this year, taking the given prompt and the prompt for seven days later, which gave me a few weird combinations. Following on from last year, I set out with the intention that everything I drew existed in the same universe, which was oftentimes restricting, but I'm looking forward to fleshing out the concepts to create a cohesive world. If I do the challenge again next year, I intend to expand it once again, but I got some ideas from some of the other pieces I saw this year, so who knows what direction I'll go in
Here is the complete set of this year's drawings, which I originally uploaded via my Instagram account
Outside of Inktober, I have various other ideas for the upcoming months, but nothing is currently set in stone. I'm probably going to take the next week off to do prepwork, but I intend to post more regularly after that, even if just a couple of times a week. I'm still uploading to YouTube and have some plans for new content I want to upload, so more on that as it comes.
So that's all for now, thanks for stopping by
