Inktober Drawings 2018

Inktober 2018.jpg

Last month i took part in the Inktober challenge, to use ink martials in drawings everyday in October.

This was a good opportunity to get in the routine and habit of drawings daily. I liked using inks, I mainly do use them for most of my work. I used traditional tools such as calligraphy ink, Chinese brushes and pen nibs. As well as modern tools fine liners and brush pens.

The source for inspiration came from Sktchy app @reebek.

My drawings gradually improved each day, I seem to improved the shading and technical skills.

I draw subjects that are out of my comfort zone and pushed myself to draw challenging, technical details such as hands, face and facial expressions.

I do a quick warm up sketch first on a separate paper. Analysing the portrait before I start drawings on my sketchpad.

I allow the drawing to dictate what it needed.

I post  drawings everyday on my Instagram @ree.bek, twitter @reebeksart and Sktchy app.

Writing in Japanese

11時に起きて、水を飲みました。純情ロマンチカのアニメを見ている。絵を描いています。ペンで漫画を描いています。漫画が楽しみです。朝ごはんは卵とヨーグルトとナッツを食べる。晩ごはんはカレーをつくります。

いまお茶を飲んでいます。

I really want to get my Japanese writing corrected. I was scared of the feedback. I took the courage, really wanted to expand and improve my Japanese.

I got two feedback corrections. It did not feel bad. They just corrected my paragraph with no problem. It actually was not that bad. In fact I want to submit more sentences and paragraph on Hello talk to get them corrected and prof read. I have to accept mistake as part of learning and to grow.

I had such a bad experience with English that I thought I won’t do well with any language but that is myth. It actually improved my English.

Once I get over the fear of sharing Japanese publicity, I’ll make progress even more.
