31 Inktober 2018 – Slice


Serendipity means;

The faculty or phenomenon of finding valuable or agreeable things not sought for

Here is a slice of pizza. I had to rush this (under 50 minutes) and due to unwanted mixing of colors on top of an already heavily distracted mind, this made it a messy slice. I tried to fix what I intended, but could only go so far.

This is the last day of Inktober, in more ways than one this feels like I reached a pivot point, both in life and creativity.

Should I continue to draw on paper? Or go digital for a while and give my markers and paint a rest, as well as not feeling so rushed for a month.

This Inktober felt just as taxing as the previous, although more determistic as there is a daily routine now where drawing has been given it’s place for the last 304 days. But as it goes with a developing skill, every day you expect to become a little better. So I entered this Inktober already with the knowledge I didn’t have last year.

Anyway, why did I start out with serendipity? In the end while adding the finishing touches with a soft brush, the drop shadow fell just right with the light and darks under my lamp, and for a moment it felt like the topping rose from the paper.

An unexpected but pleasant turn, as now I want to investigate this further. I nearly pulled it off, and it was cool to see it lift from the paper.

It was fun doing Inktober with ya’ll!
