…for this 30-day writing challenge! I think in my case the name 30-post writing challenge suits better than 30-day writing challenge lol. Anyway, cheers!
I can’t say I love writing as lightly as I’d say I love drawing just yet, although I feel like my writing is slightly improved after those 29 posts I made. I said slightly, ’cause I know my writings still suck. But hey, look!
This challenge has been fun and I’m glad I did this. I cheated by skipping some days for whatever reasons, but I know I’ve done my best!
Here’s the list of what I’ve been writing this 1,5 month:
Some posts are related because most ideas came from my former posts; means an idea is grown. The more I write, the more ideas I have. Just like the more I draw, the more I feel inspired to draw.
Soooo.. this won’t be the last time you see my writings! I want to try having my own domain or writing on other platforms like Medium, but let’s see. And I probably won’t post as many as I did before, but yes, there are more to come!! If you have any theme regarding art or anything else you’re curious about, just hit me up 😀
Thank you to everyone who’ve been reading my writings, I appreciate you a lot XOXO.

“Brush pen favorit kamu apa?”
Ini pertanyaan yang lumayan sering ditanyakan oleh teman-teman yang ingin mulai belajar brush lettering, dan sejujurnya kalau diminta untuk pilih satu, rasanya sulit! Setiap pen tentunya punya kelebihan masing-masing. Brush pen favoritku pada dasarnya adalah yang paling gampang digunakan, karena aku pun termasuk beginner yang masih belajar 😀 Di sini aku rangkum tiga pen favoritku untuk lettering alias yang sekiranya paling cocok untuk pemula ya!
You know what’s the best thing about digital art? You can undo every stroke you made. No worries about those careless, unintended lines. You can redo it as many times as you want until you’re satisfied. But it’s also the one thing that makes me love traditional art more.
Drawing traditionally makes me more confident when I’m doing a stroke. Once the ink touches the paper, there’s no going back. If by any chances you make a mistake, you just gotta embrace it. None of my works are perfect and that’s perfectly okay.
Sure, digital art offers endless possibilities. But then again, so far, I think nothing beats that feeling when a pen tip reaches a paper. There’s a therapeutic feeling when seeing the ink flows through blank space. There’s a satisfying sensation hearing that squeaky noise of a pen hitting the paper. There’s a sense of belonging to each piece I made, somehow.
My hand’s now sore for I spent most of my Eid holiday drawing on the iPad, and I gotta admit, digital art is indeed addictive. Then yesterday, I finally back to ink and paper, and I was like, “Daymn, I miss this.”
I know it seems unfair comparing traditional art that I’ve been doing for the last five years to digital art that I’ve only started last month. But this is honestly how I feel right now. I don’t know if my opinion’s gonna change within years ahead, but let’s see!
I just finished my Procreate for Beginners course! I’m getting a bit familiar with everything after completing all four projects. I’ve written about the first and second project here, and now I continue!
