!!Inktober Highlights!! – 2018 (why am i doing this to myself)

Image result for inktoberwhen people say ‘get out of your comfort zone,’ what they mean is participate in inktober

anyways IM SO EXCITED(!!!!) to share my Inktober highlights of 2018 with y’all

i didnt have a perfect month, some days i was so busy i wasn’t able to get any drawing done (i doubled up the next day, dw) and some days i have no motivation and would just sit scrolling through pictures of other people’s drawings for an hour and some days i drew actual, literal garbage

AND SOME DAYS WERE GREAT

that is to say, i only chose the pictures that I drew on those ‘great’ days

i forgot how hard it is to draw and shade and make detail without pencils wow

(this is me taking pictures with zero skill in photography and editing, i tried my best okay, be nice)

I also want to mention that i copied all of these pictures off of drawings that i found on pinterest and so i have no idea who the original artists are

alright enough yabbering, enjoyyyyy (and yes you’re allowed to give feedback and constructive criticism)

  3. Those are great May! I know drawing can be both a pain and rewarding all at once (and it takes so much fcking time). The hardest part for me was shading, I have no patience to reflect on where the light is coming from and how it affetcs the object so I would mostly ignore it (even though it makes drawings look more 3D and so much better haah).

    My favorite was the heart-shaped one, it’s like a window to a cartnoonish world, and it gives me a feeling of curiosity. I’m jealous of your shading skills ;D

    1. SHADING IS LITERALLY THE WORST and its 15x worse with pen bc when you make one wrong mark and bam picture ruined.
      THE LIGHT SOURCE IS MY ENEMY. i never get it right, thats literally why i copy drawings lol im so bad at formulating the pic in my own head

      thank you sm i really enjoyed drawing that one and girrrlllll im sure youre an amazing artist 💞 thank you for your lovely words ily

      1. Right?? The only thing that rivals shading to me is drawing hands ugh. Ohh drawing with a pen is risky business for sure, I can’t handle the idea of not being able to fix things (which is why coloring is also my enemy, I ruined so many drawings by trying to color them).
        LOL SAME, I’m better at copying than formulating too. I remember I used to pause the screen on one of my favorite animes and reproduce the fantastical outfits line by line.

        I’m pretty impressed you did that one with a pen, imagine what you would do with actual drawing pencils haha I haven’t drawn in forever, it’s too time consuming, but I do miss it sometimes. Ahh don’t mention it, I just know that drawing is hard work and that hard work should be aknowledged 😉

        1. OH MY GOD
          drawing hands is hell!!! i feel you so much omg, honestly im so worried about shading and colouring that i take a picture of my drawings before i’ve shaded them ‘in case’ i screw up with the shading and have to lose what could have been a good piece forever 😂😂

          that is HONESTLY so cool, i cant believe you had the patience for that. what an epic idea tho

          you’re a doll ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️

          1. It is, I used to draw people with their hands behind their back so that I wouldn’t have to stress over their hands hahah Ohh I used to do the same, taking pics before, thank goodness cause at least I get the memory of a better version of the drawing.

            Yeah, I favored the japanese style of drawing in general (even when I was inventing instead of copying) because they use more simplified features for drawing people and I didn’t wanna have to worry about the model much, what I loved was going crazy with the hair and the outfits haha

            Awwn you’re so sweet, I hope your drawings get even more and more amazing. 😉
