It’s officially #inktober! I get to make an image a day for the month 😁. And they have to be own and ink.
Since I’ve been doing a lot of that already, it’s not taking any real effort. All the speed work I’ve done helps with the actual images; usually it takes about two, maybe three hours.
The real issue for me is the themes.
I have ZERO interest in drawing someone else’s choices for fun. I get that this is supposed to be an exciting time for art, but honestly?…
It feels a lot like crowdsourcing.
Why do I need to create something that thousands of others have? No. I’m making original work. Going on my own tangent.
Too many people are actually cheating anyway. I’ve seen different people repost the same image in multiple groups!
If you’re going to cheat, at least be original.
