INKTOBER 2018 – 31 DAYS, 31 DRAWINGS

I’ll be playing along with Inktober for the first time this year, an Art Challenge of inking 31 drawings over the 31 days of October. In this lil post, I talk about how some of the tings I’ve learnt in past art challenges helped me come up with the idea of inking 31 Traditional Drawings of my character lilSOPHIE cosplaying various Videogame Characters :)

EPISODE 30 – WHY DO AN ART CHALLENGE?

This weeks lil podcast is all about Art Challenges, and some of the reasons why I believe doing an Art Challenge could be one of the best tings you ever do … even if it does feel a lil bit scary at first :) We also have this weeks lil Art Tip, which is to not waste time focusing on the details, by remembering to ZOOM OUT while Drawing Digitally and STEPPING BACK while Drawing Traditionally :)

EPISODE 29 – FOCUSING ON ONE PASSION

This lil episode is another one of those Art Focused Therapy Session ones, where I just empty the contents of my head into the microphone about the topic of Focusing on One Passion. I talk about the conflict of knowing I need to focus on Art, but feeling like I’m not able to … eventhough I know I am. I also talk about another Lucid Dream experience, Mindset while Drawing, Finding Balance, and this weeks lil Art Tip is all about the importance of Keeping Your Old Drawings :)

EPISODE 28 – SLEEP IS KEY

This lil episode is for us sleepyheads out there :) Due to some unforeseen circumstances, I had to sacrifice my sleep this week … not cool. It’s been interesting though, seeing how sleep is key to everything. This weeks lil Art Tip is more of a mental one, about how never to assume when learning anything to do with Art, and that’s pretty much it for this one. Hope you like it, I’m gonna to go sleep now :)

EPISODE 27 – MAKING ART SHOULD BE FUN

This lil episode is about how Making Art should be Fun, and a time to Play. I realised something this week, I don’t enjoy realistic pencil drawings as much as I used to, which scared me at first until I realised, if you’re not having fun, stop doing it :) I also share another Lucid Dream experience, and this weeks lil Art Tip is about avoiding eye strain while Digitally Painting :)

EPISODE 26 – WAKING UP EARLY

This lil one’s all about finding Focus and Balance by Waking Up Early, something I’ve just started doing, and so far, so good … it almost feels like I’ve magically created extra hours in the day :) I also talk about a couple Lucid Dreams and the lil art tip of the week is to do with pencil cases :)
