It all started with a journal... a wedding present from someone who doesn't really know me that well, and therefore thought that I would use a "My Favorite Moment of the Day" journal [for its intended purpose]. Heh. Yeah, no. Never let it be said that I'm not a bit of an ass, lol.



Anyhoo, I've decided to participate in Inktober! I post these daily to my twitter, but I've decided to post weekly summaries here, too, as suggested by the lovely [livejournal.com profile] amberdreams, who is also creating some fantastic drawings for this month-long 'challenge'. There's a ton of awesome art coming out of this, and I hope you enjoy my small contribution! :)

Day 1 - "Dayyyy One."
This was inspired by a quote from Disney's Mulan :)



Day 2 - "Unforgettable"
A friend got a song stuck in my head, and this was the result. Also, a birthday shout-out to [livejournal.com profile] makare1! (I would soon find that I have a LOT of friends with October birthdays, lol. This has been a good source of inspiration!)



Day 3 - "Home Tweet Home"
Inspired by twitter's web graphics.



Day 4 - "Hold Me Closer"
Inspired by several interests of [livejournal.com profile] infatuated_ink (tentacles and ballerinas and Jareds, oh my!) and drawn for her birthday.



Day 5 - "WIP Roar"
The inspiration for this one is still being kept secret for reasons, but the non-secret explanation is that this was inspired by the highlight event of my day :) Also, I need to work on my space-usage, lol.



Day 6 - "Swim Up [Coffee] Bar"
This was inspired by another birthday (Zee @BockVer) and some twitter posts she made with mermen. That, combined with twitter suggesting that I follow the Starbucks account, for whatever reason. Anyhoo, this was the result. Ink... can be very frustrating, lol.



Day 7 - "Inhabited Garden"
This turned out very differently than my original intention, but, eh. :shrugs:



And there you have it! My first week of Inktober drawings. I've already drawn and posted Day Eight (another birthday drawing, for [livejournal.com profile] gluedwithgold!), but you won't see it on LJ until next week ;) Until then, I'll see you on twitter (I hope!) :) ♥

This makes me wish I could draw! *pouts*
If I weren't so wrapped up in writing, I might have another go at trying to learn, but - since I'm clearly too obsessed with writing for that, I'll just live vicariously through your arting adventures! <3

Hey, I saw those cute vines you were doodling the other day. Me thinks you can indeed draw. But I'm glad you enjoy my arting in the meantime XD

Ehhh...not really - I can doodle, that's about it! lol
If I put in the time and practice and had the patience I'm sure I could, but - like I said, writing is more my thang! So keep drawing so I can keep enjoying. :-p

DOODLING IS DRAWING, TOO. HDU.

:-P

Though I agree - spend your time where it brings you the most joy! ^_^ #AlwaysKeepWriting

I love these, and how you've added text in a journal form (that Lion is just so majestic!!!)
