So here is the full page for my second page of Inktober. Each little drawing represents 1 ink drawing for that day:
And last Friday had a nice time at our Urban Sketchers meeting:
Lots of stuff this week.
A few quick life sketches on location to start off with as well as some crazy attack birds that came out of nowhere.
Next up are the close ups to my next set of Inktober drawings. I will show the whole page by itself when all the squares are filled.
More progress on the dragon. A bit blurry, but not too concerned with the pic right now. Just want to post the progress.
An update on the pulp art piece I have been working on for a while as well.
Now if only we could win the lottery…said everyone.
What does it really mean to be finished with anything? Sometimes we wander in our art – sometimes aimlessly, and sometimes with a purpose. But is it always towards a goal of being “finished.” Or is it more towards “fulfillment?”
Been working on this for a while in between other projects and I think this one is finally fullfinished;)
The problem with winning is that we place so much emphasis on it, and its instant gratification, that we do not see how one gets there. There is, and has been for years, a pervading mindset that if you are not winning, then you are a loser! The problem with this (as all “winners” can tell you) is that this is blatantly incorrect. Ask anyone who has accomplished a life goal that gives them meaning, and they will tell you the same thing – winning is the result of failure over and over again. It is years and years and years of monotony; falling down on your face; bleeding; crying; questioning your motives and directions; taking a different path only to come back; much sacrifice, and did I mention suffering? So many are afraid to fail that they end up being afraid of themselves, and of what they can truly accomplish. Failure is great! It is one of the best learning tools you can have in your arsenal! And most importantly, without it there would be no winning!
So I humbly place before you a failure that I am proud of 😀
So what are you waiting for? Go out and fail!
Sometimes you take things a little slower, and sometimes things bog you down to become slow. Either way here are a few things I have been working on over the past few weeks.
First up is a bit of outdoor scenery.
Next up are some progress shots on a very slow ink drawing I have been working on over the past few weeks. I think I am going to need some more pens soon…or get creative HAH!
