Sooooo this was supposed to have submitted a week and a half ago. But it languished in my stash instead of actually POSTING like I thought it would! >< So, here it is. #betterlatethannever
Wow. Thiiiiings have been kinda quiet on here...but that's probably a reflection of how busy real life has been. >.>
Work has been absolutely hectic with a position change and everything else going on. Personal life has gotten a little crazy, too. I'm also dealing with an old injury to my right hand, which will involve surgery at the end of October. So...there is that, which has also made it sometimes painful to even attempt drawing when I'm finally in the mood to.
almost Inktober. And even though I'm more comfortable in pencil (and there will likely be half-cheating galore, between pencil-then-inking and screencap references), I took a look at this prompt list
and got all the ideas. So, I want to at least
give a crack at it. For my own sanity, and to alleviate any potential overload on my wrist, though, I'm going to keep it sort of...Inktober Lite. But! Hopefully this'll get me back on an at least temporary drawing kick, as well as be good practice. Especially since I won't be doing much drawing in November, after the surgery. Here's hoping this'll help me be able to keep drawing, at least? I honestly can't imagine not
being able to, in some capacity.
Anyway, I've decided to select the prompts for the month which immediately get my drawing hand itching to make something, and limit it to about half or less of the official list. I have, however, combined some of the ideas, since some of them easily lent themselves to that. They are as follows:
- Swift & Run
- Poison & Underwater
- Sword & Blind
- Gigantic (possibly combined with Mask)
And of course, anyone who knows me and my current art kick will likely be able to guess what ideas I have for these. But at least some
of them can't be that easy to guess--right?
In addition, I'm hoping to throw one or two of these over to the Ronin Warrior Fanzine
that's in the works. I'm...a little nervous about it. But it's something I really got excited about when I heard about it and I would probably regret it if I didn't at least try to submit something. So...wish me luck?
Anyone else planning to do Inktober?Update:
Gotten a handful of the above sketches about 90% done or more. I was planning to super mass post them over the weekend, but I didn't get as far as I wanted. However, since only two of the prompts I've chosen show up this week, that should allow me some built in "catch up" time. I want to have at least four completed sketches (if not inked) before I throw them up here this weekend! If I'm ambitious there may even be a few bonus additions.
