Little under 2 weeks left!
For this year’s INKtober I’ve noticed that I haven’t fully been living up to the ideas of the event. True I’m starting to dabble more in doing inkwash but I don’t think I’m pushing it to where I hit a new level compared to last year where I felt a very big difference in my inking technique.
In images like Days 17-19 I was getting there but for images like Day 16 and 20, I feel like I’m still stuck in a usual rut. I think on one hand it comes from not totally learning about the materials I have at my disposal and the tools necessary to achieve a desired image in my head. On the positive side though I am getting more use to the Stillman & Birn books and I’m feeling more energized to play with their other book types once the month is over.
In any case, I still have another two weeks to go so here’s to breaking out of the rut and passing a plateau!
‘Til Next Time,
