I'm trying the Inktober Challenge this month. 30 Days of inked traditional pieces based on prompts provided. 
I'm not in a slump or anything just wanted to get out of my comfort zone and it's been a long time since I've inked anything. I've been feeling a bit bored for lack of a better word even though I sketch and am inspired quite often. Perhaps this will help me bring more sketches to completion. Challenges like this also help build good habits and I'm all for developing good artistic habits even if I don't make it through every prompt.
I'm going to need new pens..

Kuro from Kurokami. She boxes and I think that's awesome. I really like this series but I got turned off from the anime. I'll have to give it another shot one day but I felt they changed Keita way too much...Manga - jerk evolving to a nice dude, Anime- pot of emo....
I actually had an idea to draw something similar to this and had part of it done a few years ago. Pulling from that I expanded and finished it.

Kuro is (c) Dall-Young Lim and Sung-Woo Park

Howdy, nice to meet you. I mainly was searching through DevianArt under my name when I came a crossed your last journal entry. I have to say that it is quite interesting to meet someone else named Zoven but, since you have been on here longer it is clear to me that you did not just take my name. If anything, it would be in reverse lol. However, this is not the case either. My name I came up with about 14ish or so years ago before I even knew what DeviantArt was. Again it is nice to meet you and I love your art style. All I have to say is keep it up as you seem pretty good at it, a lot better than my current skill level anyways lol.

lol How interesting. Sorry for the late reply. 
My husband (then boyfriend) and I actually came up with the name Zoven about 15 or so years ago when he created a character for me in a story he had ideas for.  Crazy eh? It's been my name here as well on FFXI ( and any other game it's not taken first lol) and oddly enough I ran into a few people there that thought I was another Zoven from another server! 

Very cool to meet you! :D
