i'm sorry to say that i'm admitting defeat on my inktober challenge... as such, i won't be posting daily anymore.
it's been a good 12+ days that i've tried. but work has come, and we've got to prioritize sometimes. money and reputation is sometimes more important than the love of pokemon and push.
it was a fun experience trying to push myself to produce everyday. as i mentioned before, i've had tried this kind of challenge before, and have somewhat success too. but drawing pokemon is one thing, i found out later in my process that drawing pokemon tattoo is another. i'd take too much time sometimes to get the tribal references correct, or playing with the backlight and compositions too much... as a result of these, it made the process a chore for me, and took too much time to be squeezed in between life, jobs, and posting everyday.
so, i'm sorry to announce that i'll be stopping this challenge as of today, actually, as of a couple of days ago. i still owe 3 pokemon drawings as promised to friends who had comment on the previous journal. and i'll be updating and editing some of the designs i posted that i'm not fully satisfied with. then, i'd make some combinations of them, and post a few on teepublic to be sold as t-shirts.
special thanks to all friends who'd fav and comment on almost every piece of pokemon tat that has a bit of quality. i really appreciate all the support.
i don't feel bad about stopping this challenge, because i'm aware that it was not due to a lack of effort. instead, it was a lack of planning ahead. so hopefully, i won't make this kind of mistake again in future challenges.
