Better late than never. I wasn’t able to complete this sketch on day 12. However, the theme appealed to me and I did not want to skip “shattered”.
I read an article at Muddy Colors this morning that I instantly wanted to share. The article is written around what defines a “real” artist. This a subject that I have pondered many times and I imagine that other creative people have as well.
“Am I an artist?” Is a question I have asked myself many times and I still don’t know how I would react if I was asked this question by a stranger. I sketch…does that make me an artist? I enjoy photography…does that make me an artist? I am a fairly competent woodworker…does that make me an artist? You get the idea. Everyone has a different opinion on what skill level or activities makes someone a “Real” Artist.
Anyway, I think this article does an excellent job of addressing the question and I highly recommend reading it. Especially, if you have ever wondered the same of yourself.

The official prompt for today was “Run”. Here is my attempt at running water.
Here is my sketch for Inktober Day 10 “Gigantic”.
Currently, I am finding the official Inktober prompt list to be quite useful. However, I still reserve the right to go “of the list” whenever other inspiration strikes!
I was able to make time for an Inktober sketch today. I decided to stick with the official prompt of “Shy” for this one. I can’t take credit for the composition, I used a photo reference but I thought it fit the theme quite well.
I managed to find time to create a sketch today. I will say that I am a bit disappointed in the way it turned out. But, I did try to do something different with this sketch. A bit of experimentation. It just didn’t turn out to well.
Enough of that…here is the sketch. Oh, today I did decide to go with the official prompt of underwater.
