I kind of forgot that I was doing Inktober until a couple of my classmates reminded me.
Day 9: Swing
I combined two things I adore: anime and literature from the 1800s. The Pit and the Pendulum is a short story by Edgar Allan Poe, one of my favourite authors. I drew Emma from the anime, The Promised Neverland. The prompt is “swing’ so that’s why I drew a pendulum. ^_^
If you’ve watched or read The Promised Neverland, the reason for Emma being the one potentially killed should make even more sense because of the anime’s premise.
Before you say anything, no, this is not the first thing that came to my mind when I read the prompt. The playground swing was the first thing that came to my mind, but I have never liked doing what everyone else does (AKA, draw the playground swing).
Day 10: Pattern
I drew baby blue eyes flowers. I am not particularly proud of this one, but it’s better than nothing.
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. ^^
Juuzou Suzuya is probably my favourite character in the anime, Tokyo Ghoul. The feathers are from my older drawing of Misa Amane from Death Note.
Fun fact: I thought about drawing hanging dead bodies but I thought that would be just a little too graphic… Fyi, ‘four’ in Chinese sounds like the word ‘death’ in Chinese. That’s why there are four feathers.
My reasons for drawing make more sense to me now. I started to draw this because I was in a bad mood and once I finished sketching Suzuya, I wasn’t angry anymore. It’s as if I poured my anger, negativity and frustrations into this very quick drawing. That’s why I felt like I didn’t need to colour or do anything fancy with this. Well, I’m off to enjoy the rest of my day. ^^
