New Check-In - New Drumming video, what else to wish for. I missed your drumming sessions, made my day. :makeway:
thanks @TheLibrarian :D
Thought it would be fitting to at least start off the new check-in with some drums
:nod:

It's been a bit bumpy this side, with things outside of training,
not to mention our country being plagued with daily power outages.
But we make do for now.

~ No running today, due to ongoing power outages which were early morning today, so not gonna take

Just kept it nice and short with today's training session as a bit of an active rest I suppose.
Push-ups are coming along. Grinder reps start at 35 now.
Some drumming practice pad is also always a nice way just to stay warm I guess.
Monstober is forcing quite the stretch...

Congrats on your progress! 👍 Loving the drawings, very inspiring :)

~ finally some improvement with the running, though having said that;
the conditions this morning weren't too great. Had to battle some wind, but we made it work.

Black Phillip from the rather disturbing 'The VVITCH' movie, was an odd experience to have to
put on paper like that while thinking back about the role it had in the film.
As I was finishing up the colours, my wife mentioned to me that if she has nightmares tonight,
its my fault for drawing it.

Though the tarmac was a little slick from drizzle last night.
Seems my current running shoes don't handle that too well. Felt like I didn't have any grip at all in a few spots.
:chicken:

Monstober; initially had no idea how to approach the concept of Poreskoro at all.
Bird body, 4 dog heads, 4 cat heads and a snake for a tail...seriously?
Fortunately something appeared.

Woke up this morning just feeling out of it. Spirit flame burning quite low again. Guess it's been a little more on the demanding side, with regards to other things.
Still...
managed to grind it out with this morning's training session.

Got in some decent practice pad time, and conjured up a manticore too.
Had bit of trouble finding a pose that made sense to me for this one.
Scraped quite a few ideas, until finally settling on the current one.

Finally managed to churn out something behind the drum kit again!

~ feeling a bit on the beat up side today.
The run was felt rather laboured. Either way, ended up being pretty good at the end.
Final stretch of Monstober this week.
Amikiri was a fun change of pace, since the last couple who were demons.

Had me in a bit of a coughing fit, when I got back.
Push-ups seem to be gradually levelling up; grinder reps only starting at 40 today.

Monstober; Testing the waters a little by working on actually putting

I'm thinking of perhaps tackling that after Monstober is over.

~ and with that Monstober comes to a close.
It's been a tremendous learning experience.
Need to figure out how I can maintain this habit, going forward, but something that will also force me to grow.
I've also come to realize the fact that I had to check-in here, also pretty much forced me in that I had to get
a monster done every day.
So applying the mindset of daily fitness training to artistic endeavors certainly has a positive effect.

~ I seem to have fallen off the horse with my creative endeavors... will have to make a point at rectifying that asap.
Training wise, this morning's push-ups session had me feeling the pump real good.
Even though by the time I got to the uneven push-ups, my upper body was screaming.
