Inktober – the Almost Halfway Progress

How’s everyone’s Inktober going?

Thanks for nothin’!

I think I’m doing pretty good…not perfect, but so far, I’ve been posting something daily.  More than once, sometimes!

As mentioned in my previous post, my plan was to, not only use the official Inktober prompt list, but to draw a little comic each day – each one connecting into a story for my character based on Snow White.

Show her what you think of that apple!

So far, I haven’t run into any snags coming up with a comic to fit in with each prompt…but the later half…not going to lie, I’m scratching my head over it. But that’s all part of the fun and challenge, right?

Oh geeze…

But OF COURSE, Star Wars just HAD to come out with a new trailer and everything else that’s making my imagination go 10,000 MPH. There was NO WAY I’m not going to squeeze in some inked Star Wars fan art.

Round 1…FIGHT!

Let’s get to it! Just…what, 18 more days?

Hope you’ll follow Essie’s Inktober story in my Instagram and Twitter!

The Spongy Apple

I mentioned earlier that I was rethinking my creative goals this year – either to learn a new skill, improve what I already know, or contemplate on that gas station salad I dared myself to eat.

Well, if you’ve been following along on Instagram or Twitter, I’ve recently been posting a weekly comic. Yay! Great!

What’s not so great, in my mind – is that they’re scattered all over the place. So after sort of asking around (aka got two replies), I decided to compile them on Line Wetbtoons! Yay! I know many of you have been scouring the deep crevices of the interwebs to find them all…now you’re in luck.

If you’ve been following the short comics – maybe you’ve noticed some minor improvements – namely the font. I so wished I asked about fonts earlier.

Yikes.

I’ve even gone around to giving the comic a name, since…I think I had to when uploading to Webtoons.

Presenting – The Spongy Apple!

The meaning is much deeper than this.

It’s still a learning process for me. Hell, I’m STILL learning all the ways of Clip Studio Paint (which I highly recommend for folks looking for a low-cost, but very robust art app).

But what I’m liking about a page like Webtoons is knowing people really are looking at it. Pretty encouraging!

I’ve still got a ways to go…much to learn. But it’s definitely something I’ve always wanted to do and, whether it’s daily or weekly – sharing something that I create regularly feels quite fulfilling.

Anyhow – if you visit my comic on Webtoons – please subscribe! And if they make you laugh, I could sure use a pick-me-up!
