A shorter #introduction now I have a bit more of a hang of this!
I'm a UK-based neurodivergent, easily distracted and enthusiastic IT professional with a wonky body.
I mostly work digitally, but daily art challenges, including Inktober, have improved my traditional skills.
I'm aspiring to be a comics creator, but to be less extreme about it than I've been during challenges. More self-care and fun, less argh-deadlines.
Here's some self-portraits, scroll up this thread of replies for a selection of favourite comics, Inktober entries, wildlife art and Doctor Who fan art.
I've now made a 10 page printable PDF colouring book, featuring 16 characters including Ood, Cybermen, Daleks and K-9!
As long as you're not making money off these, they're free to download and use however you wish - just please give me credit and link back to the download page:
I'd love to see what people do with them 🙂
And with that, I've beaten my Inktober 2017 total number of Inktober entries, and without burning out or stressing out in the process this time 😊
I've now equalled the number of Inktober entries I managed last year, without burning out or my self-care suffering!
Skipping days and doing combo catch-up entries was definitely a good strategy for sustainability! 😊
That one would've looked much better if I'd realised my black marker had dried up before I started colouring with it!
(That was a quicky because I realised how late it was just as I started inking)
For one terrible moment, all I could think of to fit those prompt words was colonic irrigation! 😅
I challenged myself to draw fire in freehand ink without using colour.
Don't think I completely succeeded, but that's ink for you!
I accidentally lettered the days as 16-18 in the first version of that, not realising it had passed midnight, so the redrawn numbers aren't quite as neat as they would've been!
Just noticed the thumbnail sketch for last night's Inktober entry - it looks so much more dynamic than what I ended up inking!
