The end of Inktober 2019

IMG_20191016_164521I am not going to lie I am quite happy Inktober is over now. I did find my love for drawing back. But with school I sometimes had some trouble finding the time. I already
expected this when I started. This was the reason that I made doodles instead of full drawing.

 

What I learned from this.

I found my love for drawing back. I had not drawn for a few months. So it was really nice to start making little drawings again.

But I realised that I like to make quick drawings. Draw an avocado on toast, a ghost and special love for faces. I really love drawing faces as you might have seen by now.

 

But  I am happy I did it. Which is the most important thing.

I do prefer a pencil

This week I found out that I do prefer a pencil over the ink. Not to erase but to make the lines softer. If I had used different ink and different way to apply that ink I would have been able to make the lines softer. But I did not do that.

The thing I liked about using a pen for inktober was that I always had one around. And it is really easy to use. But with a pencil, I smudge out some of the lines with my finger. This makes the lines softer. Sometimes that gives a different feel to a drawing or doodle.

 

My doodles for this week:

I do not like drawing I like doodling

Last week I really fell back in love with drawing. Or so I thought. I realised that I like to make a quick drawing. Or at least most of the time. I still like making a portrait once in a while. But that always take 8+ hours. Sometimes you just need a quick fix. So a doodle will do just fine. Than expectations are not so high. Than it is fine if you mess up.

 

Doodles for the weeks inktober

what I did to want to draw again

I did not put the pressure on myself to make perfect drawings every day.  This is why some of the drawings are not as good as others. A moment ago I was sitting at the table finishing the last drawing. The realisation came to me that I really enjoyed the process of it.

For the first time in the past few months, I really want to draw again. And I do not mean doodles I mean a proper good portrait of someone.

Here are my doodles.

Inktober week 1

This is going to be my first Inktober. Unfortunately, I don’t have ink at the moment. So, I am going to do this with a fountain pen and some with a normal pen. It is still ink I guess.

I am not going to do a full portrait in ink every day. Simply because I do not have the time for that right now. I am mostly going to doodle things.

Inktober is not just to learn to draw or draw with ink. It is also about creating a positive habit. I think smaller doodles still have some sort of creative process behind it.
