Inktober 2017

So, my Inktbober this year was a bit meagre due to reasons which were out of my control. 
I've been sick for quite a long time and October was the month I started taking lots of extra shifts at work. Working 40+ hours in retail with an on-going health issue just exhausted me. Plus, I had massive expectations for the outcomes. I really wanted to produce finished artwork I could possibly use for my portfolio, but that was impossible with the time I had left from work. The first two illustrations took me about two days each, and left me behind from day 2. 
I was going to bed really late because I really wanted to finish my drawings, only to wake up wasted in the morning, rush into work and wear myself out. 
I wasn't even content with mere doodles so I just stopped all together. At the time I didn't think it was the best decision, and hated myself for not fulfilling my goals, but there's no point thinking about it anymore. If anything, this gave me an opportunity to make some life changes and take some important decisions.

I apologise for the quality of the scanning. I was using diluted ink which clearly didn't agree with the paper I was drawing on, so that's why it's all wrinkled and uneven. If anybody's got any suggestions on how to properly scan and edit black and white drawings please, do leave a message. I'm desperate for some suggestions.
