It’s Too Bad About Me

image

    I’m trying to keep my sanity lately. My usual cycle is to feel better,  stop my meds then feel worse. But the good thing about#inktober is that it’s helping me with my perspective.

     Inking with brushes takes a lot longer than using pens! Still, I like knowing how to ink the old fashioned way.

image

        Sometimes the backgrounds take me even longer than the main image. My real job puts me in hotels occasionally, so I know what they look like. That means this one was easier.

        Oh and it will be nude. Did I mention that? Sorry I’m freshly medicated so my attention span is…off.

    I’m so excited! I had a little life crisis, but it’s no longer raining inside my house. The repairs took almost all of my holiday. Ih well…

   This is Melissa Sarah Wee. She’s a bodybuilder, obviously, and a really sweet person. Since I’m doing #inktober and doing a drawing a day, I decided to post the steps of her drawing on her page. She is the subject after all…

….the response was overwhelming.

      I’m getting a lot of requests for commissioned work. It’s weird to consider.  Until a month ago, I was telling myself it would be another month before I was ready to do this much work. Now I’m churning out more than I have in years!

image

    I’m sorry if this seems like bragging it’s just that I’m really starting to feel like an artist. Like I could conceivably be paid for it.

     I guess the lesson is if you have a huge passion for something,  do your best to not let it die. #lovetheprocess

      It’s.#inktober! So for this month, I have to do a drawing in pen, marker or ink of some type everyday.

image

     Of course,  I’m not going to post each and every one,  though you’ll probably end up seeing them all. Plus it never hurts to practice a bunch…

image

      Its been tough though. First I injured a finger on my drawing hand.It became all swollen and discolored. The pain wasn’t too bad,  but I hated doing anything with it.

image

         Then my roof fell in in my kitchen! Apparently it had been built wrong to start with and came down with a crash. I’m scrambling now to install a new one.

image

     Despite all of the nonsense, I cranked out a picture a day without fail. More to the point I’m learning how to streamline my process.

image

        So that’s it for now. I’m learning a lot about the business side of art as well. Hopefully I will be able to put it to use soon!

        It takes a lot of patience and effort to keep your life on track. Lately I’ve had to readjust some priorities, but the good news is that my art gained more consideration.

image

      After visiting Artists Alley at Comic-Con,  I received a lot of support. I really didn’t expect it;  I had professional artists telling me I should be one of them! Vindication; don’t knock it until you receive it, am I right?

        Anyway I’m supposed to be doing a calendar for next year. I’m pretty stoked.
     Wish me skill, not luck. I’m gonna need it!
