Inktober 2021 Day 5: RAVEN

I banned the use of color pencils and markers for today’s drawing. I was hoping my step daughter would be able to focus more on the drawing than coloring. Especially since Raven’s don’t have a lot of wild colors besides maybe a dark blue tint to their feathers. She wasn’t satisfied with one so IContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 5: RAVEN”

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 promptContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 4: KNOT”

Inktober 2021 Day 3: VESSEL

VESSEL – noun a ship or large boat. a hollow container, especially one used to hold liquid, such as a bowl or cask. We decided to do a ship since my step daughter thought a bowl would be boring. Part of me was interesting in doing a variation different from this, which I might tryContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 3: VESSEL”

Inktober 2021 Day 2: SUIT

I was honestly stumped on this one. I thought about doing something creative, but I didn’t have that much wind in my sails today. I just did a suit jacket. I was supervising my step daughter a bunch for this day of drawing. Suits aren’t something she’s had to see that often in her lifeContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 2: SUIT”

Inktober 2021 Day 1: CRYSTAL

Since my step daughter isn’t here for every day of the month of October, I started working on Inktober with her in September. Also, one drawing a day can be rough for a 9-year-old so we are trying to space the project out a bit for her. The first drawing was a bit rough onContinue reading “Inktober 2021 Day 1: CRYSTAL”

Inktober

What exactly is Inktober? (FAQ) I mentioned that I was going to do this way, WAY back in August. I’m even writing up this post during that time period. Okay. So I’ve had plenty of time to amend this post since I first started writing it in August. I really just wanted to keep myselfContinue reading “Inktober”

Prelude to Inktober

Tomorrow’s post is about preparing for Inktober, but I thought I’d do another post about past Inktobers. I’ve considered doing it in the past and I’ve started it a few times, but I’ve never really stuck to it since my drawing is always so sporadic. It’s one of the things that helps me realize artContinue reading “Prelude to Inktober”

If You Need a Pick-Me-Up

In our DBT Discord, we’ve got a venting channel for when you’re having a hard time. Sometimes talking about your struggles can help. It’s always good though to be cautious about talking about your sadness and depression. Especially to a source outside of your therapist or psychiatrist. Focusing on it can cause you to beContinue reading “If You Need a Pick-Me-Up”

Corgi Puppies

I don’t want to seem like I’m moving on quickly from the loss of Mango or Velveteen, but I’ve been brainstorming my next pet for a few years now. I’ve wanted something that will keep me active. Needing to take a dog out to potty regularly throughout the day is really useful for that. AndContinue reading “Corgi Puppies”
