INKTOBER DAY 9 & 10 : Precious & Flowing | Crystal blue waters flowing through paradise. We often associate the word precious with luxury or anything expensive, but we should remind ourselves that not everything can be bought or made. Nature is the most precious commodity that we have. It is priceless and yet free for everyone. It is everywhere and yet we don’t make the most out of it. It is irreplaceable and yet we don’t take care of it. ✍🏻🌏

INKTOBER DAY 8: Star | As Martin Luther King Jr. once said “Only in the darkness can you see the stars.” This brings us to the realization that we must not despair during times of challenges for this is the time in which we will see things that we won’t usually see during happy times. There’s always hope even in the darkest of situations. We just have to believe, have faith, and open our eyes to opportunities. ✍🏻🌟

INKTOBER DAY 6 & 7: Drooling & Exhausted | I’m doing a 2-in-1 post today. My subject for today’s sketch is a young exhausted arctic wolf trying to find food. As you can see it’s also drooling because it can see other wolves eating. ✍🏻🐺

INKTOBER DAY 5: Chicken | For day 5, the prompt (chicken) is very straightforward and easy. Here’s a chicken sketch to celebrate the middle of the week. I just realized that bird sketches are interesting. I might do a series of bird sketches after Inktober. Watch out for that. ✍🏻🐔

INKTOBER DAY 4: Spell | Ramping up my sketch game to catch up on the daily prompts. Here’s an awkward pumpkin to represent the day 4 prompt, Spell. Like in fairytales, sometimes all we need is a little ‘spell’ to change our lives. It doesn’t need to be a pumpkin turning into a gilded coach; it can be as simple as a small opportunity opening us to a world full of possibilities. ✍🏻✨

INKTOBER DAY 3 : Roasted | I know that I’m a bit late with this sketch, but as the saying goes: it’s better late than never. Dragon flame for day 3 because it’ll definitely roast everything on its path. ✍🏻🔥

INKTOBER DAY 2: Tranquil | Large rock formations along the beach make good landscapes. They also exude tranquility and zen; something that we all need in this chaotic world that we live in. ✍🏻🏞

INKTOBER Day 1: Poisonous | It’s finally October and we all know what that means...Inktober! For this year, I’ve decided that I will be following the official prompt list. I think doing so will help me further unleash my creative juices and enable me to explore new themes. Although, I’ll modify it a little and will probably not post on a daily basis due to the current volume of work that I have in the office. Anyways, the subject of today’s sketch is called the ‘Portuguese Man of War’. These beautiful creatures are nice to look at but beware as it gives a nasty sting. Its sting is poisonous enough to kill marine life like fish but it rarely kills humans. Despite its appearance, it’s actually not a jellyfish but a siphonophore, which basically means it’s made up of different organisms. Interesting huh? ✍🏻☀️

Temple Ruins 🏛 | This week has been a stressful one but I’ve decided not to surrender to it. Sometimes, we just have to pause and rest. But most of the times, it all boils down to having the correct mindset. As the saying goes: “The greatest weapon against stress is our ability to choose one thought over another.” ☀️✍🏻

Today’s sketch is quite random. The idea just manifested suddenly and I just have to put into sketching. The rawness of nature bundled-up to form something beautiful. | Anyways, it’s back to reality again for me today as I go back to the office. ✍🏻🌿

“Happiness isn’t about getting what you want all the time. It’s about loving what you have and being grateful for it.” 🙏🏻☀️

I consider Inner Peace as one of the rarest commodities that one can have. It is something that one can’t just purchase in any shop, it is priceless, it is a state of mind. I also consider it as one of the key ingredients to genuine happiness. 🌎🌍🌏
