Inktober 2021 Day 4: KNOT

I had such a hard time with this one. It’s so simple, but it took so much time to brain my way through it. Urgh. I feel like I’ll need to go back through later and color some of these pieces. Or ink them. I know it’s just supposed to be a simple drawing prompt month, but I feel very frustrated. That’s probably why I haven’t been able to do any art since my Dad died. I’ve been a perfectionist about it and anything that isn’t exactly ideal, faultless, and flawless just gets scrapped.

I think my step daughter was frustrated at this point as well. Haha. Well, it makes sense she would use a shoe string knot as her illustration. She has a rack FULL of shoes. Most of them don’t involve shoe laces for obvious reasons. I didn’t let her color this one. She used heavy pencil for shading and I’ve been trying to explain to her that markers tend to get muddy from the pencil lead.

We’re trucking along with this Inktober project! I actually just remembered that she has Fall break this month, so it was probably a good idea to work on this before October. She’s bound for the beach for an entire week! I think that Fall is probably one of the only times during the year that the beach is actually the perfect temperature. Sadly I’ll be stuck at home with the lovely SO watching the fur babies.

I’ll be dreaming of the beach though…

Thanks as always, guys!
