Rejected version of today's piece.
I'm kind of proud that I've continued with this, even if it's not strictly adhering to the official guidelines. I might not be super good with ink but I've gotten fairly comfortable with it in a short amount of time, and I've found that it's actually a lot of fun and looks very nice in its own way.
It's funny, because several of these drawings I've finished and looked at them only to think they didn't turn out well, but when I take some time away and then come back, they don't seem as bad. I think I'm just overcritical of myself. I think I expect each new drawing to be the best ever, like I need to get everything perfect all the time, but I don't even know what perfect is. If I'm not blown away by it then it's not up to snuff. Sometimes I think I need to let good enough be good enough and move onto the next. The highs will come when they come, but that doesn't mean the rest are all lows, you know?
I have one more Inktober piece planned.
