this is my 2nd year, finished all 31 prompt list in 2019.
- Are you going to do one large piece, or multiple/daily pieces?
daily pieces. i find it much more interesting to come up with ideas, although it can be very harsh and hard, when you don't feel connected to a word, and then you just improvise. but that's fine too. the idea part is very important to me, like what can you create with a single word, what does it mean to me? what does it evoke? and if it doesn't, why? also it keeps my mind very very busy on the creative part.
and a great composition exercise to think about the different ways to deliver the idea.
- Will you be sticking to the prompt list?
yes. because i think its harder. sometimes it can take away the fun-but not take away the challenge. which is important to me, since it is kind of an exercise. besides, i am much more experienced than my first inktober. i gathered alot more experience in almost every field.
not that its any good yet. but its better.
- Will you be planning/sketching ahead of time, or will you be winging it daily ?
winging it daily. since that is part of the challenge. i mean if i had like a sudden emergency which my time was taken from me,
then i might compensate on later days. if I finish the daily before the end of the day, it also means i am free for the rest of the day, to think about other stuff
4.What is the main thing you want to take away from the experience
just practice basically. its such a hard combo this competition. the ideating, thinking over it, the composition, what will work, what will not, next there's perspective, figure, proportion, anything else, and how to shadow in ink, which i also improved a bit there, so its going to be fun-practice wise.
but also, i would want to see how and if my drawings and thinking have improved from last year. see my progress there.
and also i post in DA so it will be interesting to see, what pieces are more likeable, or more easier to understand. which is like getting sort of a feedback, I used to do it on facebook which was very time consuming. but i quit facebook. so only on DA.
also i found that smaller sketchbooks are much faster, and somewhat easier in certain fields. so i moved from the a4 to a like 3rd of that size, so in that manner, it will also be interesting to see how i deal with this.
