Some ideas inspire more than one drawing and a mini story. It makes coming up with ideas a tiny bit easier for one day or two.
I find that I have to do more research and reference sketches, which shows that I still have a lot to learn before drawing from imagination becomes more natural.
In spite of all the work, or maybe because of it, I'm really enjoying this challenge. Maybe I will keep making these at regular intervals (just not every day!) when the Inktober challenge is over.
