Hell yes, #inktober is starting! :la:

Inktober by DamaiMikaz

For those that do not know what inktober is, it's a challenge that's been going around for a few years now. It's about making daily/regular drawing with ink.
Think about regular ink, fineliners, markers, but I've even seen digital ink being done (might be an idea for those that don't have traditional ink and/or and are broke as hell). 

For the complete story, I'd recommend you to check out this website.

I was originally planning to go for the full 31 days, but then my health messed up again :')
So I'm now trying to do a regular schedule with at least 3 a week (the weekends) which is for me challenging enough considering crappy health, loads of hospital appointment, and obvious social obligations (seriously? Why is everybody's birthday in October? WHYYYY???)

But... I'm not gonna make a journal without at least providing some helpful stuff, and good and inspirational ink drawings :la:

Here's some awesome ink drawings

For more inspiration, check out the Inktober inspiration topic I made on DeviantArt, where you can also share some of your own drawings or favorites. 
For those with Pinterest, I've also made a board with all kinds of ink-related drawings (a lot of non-DA stuff as well)

Here are some tutorials that cover the basics

And some video's

People draw shit for me. Literally :dummy:
Inktober Round Seven : Pretty Turd by Cr34t3d
That empty feeling when you've watched the last episode of a good series :( (Sad) 
There are people with so much art skills that even if they were to draw a turd, it would still look pretty.
I envy those people T__T
Dammit! My cat got her claws on my favorite eraser and she won't tell me where she hid it #catownerproblems

~Just keep drawing until it gets awesome

Yep, that's me.
I'm not a professional artist, and I'm not aiming to become one either for now. I usually work on art in my free time, especially on my main project; Emion, a novel I've been working on ever since 2006. So yeah... I'm more of a writer than a visual artist. I enjoy both digital and traditional art, and practice both. I'm a huge nerd --the kind that pulls apart computers and does programming-- and I love everything technology related.
