I’m so behind, but I’m no longer prioritizing art. I’m happy that I got back into drawing but I have other hobbies as well. Blogging, for example, is something I want to do more of, specifically reviewing anime. Expect a cosplay post really soon.
Day 6: Husky
Day 7: Enchanted
I drew Princess Mansherry from One Piece. She has healing abilities.
Day 8: Frail
I drew sick Rin from the video game, Catherine: Full Body.
As you may already know, I had given up on drawing. I guess anything is possible.
I missed Day 6 but I will probably draw it sometime in the near future. Work and school life got in the way. D:
I’m hoping to focus more on cosplay, so I won’t be drawing on days I cosplay. It would be too much time and effort on my part, given the fact that my schedule is already busy as it is.
Day 4: Freeze
The petals/leaves (uh, interpret it as you will) falling and changing colours symbolize the everchanging world. This includes people too.
But sometimes you feel stuck. While everything around you is moving, you feel “frozen” in time.
This notion of feeling “frozen” came to me when I read the prompt. ^^
There is a story behind this drawing. This was originally my drawing for Inktober Day 2 (the theme was mindless) but I had second thoughts about the drawing after I finished it. That’s when I decided to quit Inktober.
If you’ve read my earlier post, you’ll know that I’ve continued Inktober (for now). I received many words of encouragement from friends to keep going. ^^
For those of you who don’t know what Inktober is, there a prompt list with a different theme for each day in October. It happens every year in October. Those who want to participate create a drawing every day and their drawing has to be related to that theme. Most people draw traditional art (hence the name, “Ink” October).
I decided to participate for the first time. Since I draw digitally, my Inktober drawings are digital art. I wasn’t planning on doing it this year but I got a lot of support. I gave up on drawing as a hobby for two reasons. The first was because of new hobbies (cosplay, reviewing anime, and photography) while the second reason was because I had no confidence in my drawing. The last time I drew prior to Inktober was December 2018.
I still don’t have confidence in my drawing. After Day 1, I planned on quitting. I’ve done three days of art so far, so it’ll be interesting to see how far I go.
This is the prompt list I’m following:
Day 1: Ring
Ring –> earring.
Day 2: Mindless
Day 3: Bait
The idea behind this drawing is idealization. When you idealize someone, you’ve “baited yourself.” Under their mask that YOU created of them, they may not be the person you think they are. You have a surface level understanding of them and maybe you just like the idea of them.
