Warmup of the Day! - OCTOBER by dCTb Warmup of the Day! - OCTOBER by dCTb

WuotD!OCTOBER



"The idea is to challenge myself as well as to keep me drawing no matter what; even if it's a sloppy 30second gesture drawing for the entire day. And every month, I'll put up another compilation piece like this one as I expect to see improvement which in turn should lead to even more motivation to draw!"

October has been rough. But I try to remind myself of what Neil Gaiman said (from this inspirational speech which is worth listening to [link]):
"Whatever you do, you have one thing that is unique. You have the ability to make art… Sometimes life is hard, things go wrong, in life and in love, in business and in friendship and in health and in all the other ways life can go wrong, and when things get tough this is what you should do…MAKE GOOD ART"
I didn't draw everyday this month but I'm glad I was able to draw at all.

Hah, October was terrible for me too. The only thing that held me was this Neil Gaiman's speech. Because art is all I have left. And 30 second gesture drawing...
I am pleased that someone at the other end of the world is going through the same thing.
I wish you all the best of luck.
