I took the stats from my blog to figure out what images had the most hits from 2017. These are the winners.
And look at that! All of these are from my attempt at Inktober 2017. I think that's a real testament to how important it is to set goals and projects for yourself. I really tried to not get hung up on the 'completion' aspect, needing to do all 31 drawings on the designated days, using the prompts. Instead, I focused on just putting pen to paper and not much else.
For me, my biggest hurdle right now is combating my 'imposter' thoughts. And I'm finding that what helps me be successful in that fight is allowing myself to draw what I want, when I want. I definitely think that if I had tried to force myself to stick to someone else's schedule, prompts, whatever, I would've gotten overwhelmed and burned out before I hardly got started. That style of pushing myself has never worked for me. Following what feels good has always brought me better fortunes.
So draw what you love. Fit in learning and technique training when you can.
