Prawie połowa listopada za nami, więc jak, wypoczęliście już po Inktoberze? ;D Dla jednych była to na pewno sympatyczna odskocznia od "normalnych" prac, inni już po kilku dniach pomstowali, po co w ogóle zaczynali.

Ithilloth's Profile Picture

Artist | Varied
Hi. I'm a castaway from another planet, where people are made of watercolor paint.
Currently, I'm looking for my lost spaceship. In the meanwhile, I dwell in stories, spoken, sung, written and illustrated.
You can talk to me about weird things, ask for art advice, give unasked art advice, tell your whole life, I don't mind listening. I do give feedback sometimes though. You've been warned.
I do a lot of personal projects and illustrations, don't be shy to ask me about commissions though. In the worst case, you will learn what I can do for you ;)

“If you hear a voice within you say "you cannot paint", then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced.” - Vincent van Gogh
“If you have a story that seems worth telling, and you think you can tell it worthily, then the thing for you to do is to tell it, regardless of whether it has to do with sex, sailors or mounted policemen.” - Dashiell Hammett
“Things need not have happened to be true. Tales and dreams are the shadow-truths that will endure when mere facts are dust and ashes, and forgot.” - Neil Gaiman
“That's pretty much the rule for any art - that it starts from a point of view, that the person who creates the art has reference points, has influences, has inspirations, you borrow from all these things. And if your personality is strong enough, whatever you borrow - beg, borrow or steal - will still sound like you.” - Steven Wilson
“Because you have to understand that when you do this work it’s like an apprenticeship. You have a love for the work of music as something that drives you, but then there’s no one to teach you how to find your own unique potential. So usually you’re driven by things that inspire you as a tutorial if you like.” - Lisa Gerrard

“Never trust the storyteller. Only trust the story.”

Where do I get inspiration from
and if one day we'll meet
you'll find your place to kiss on my face
then you'll make me unforgettable

I managed to finish less than one third of Inktober in time. Considering I usually give up before I even begin, I guess that's some success compared to my previous attempts. I got way too ambitious with my illustrations to fit them in one day, which I don't regret in the slightest, I even wish I could spare some time to refine some of them more. I kind of find it boring and limiting to cut down on the execution of an idea that speaks to me very clearly.

It was interesting to observe how it hurt to not be able to draw every day with the same intensity. My old habits of not being perfect enough are still lingering, though not as paralyzing as they used to be. I found drawing with ink extremely relaxing, almost like meditation - even when the sketch underneath was not fully refined. It's a very rewarding feeling I consider valuable to hold onto.

I decided not to give up on the remaining themes just yet. I still have some sketches and ideas I'd like to finish just for myself. Stay tuned and don't be too surprised if you still see some inktober illustrations from me.

As a final word, a song befitting of the general Inktober concept: 

Thanks to everyone who supported me along the way! :peace:
