Hello all. A couple of days ago, I found out that a fun drawing challenge exists called Inktober. I found out quite late that it even existed, but despite this, I was eager to give it a go. It’s never too late to take part in something like this, so why not?
For those who are not aware of what Inktober is, it is a fun challenge done by artists all over the world in which you draw something in ink for each day in October. Each time a drawing is finished, you upload the image online and tag it with #Inktober and #Inktober2016.
There is a prompt list that you may follow with words to base your drawing on, though this is optional. I have chosen to follow that list.
The aim of Inktober is just to bring out good drawing habits and it is purely for fun, but it’s also interesting to see how fellow artists and illustrators take on the challenge in their own way.
And with that, here are my first 10 drawings. To symbolise how late I came into the challenge, the first 8 images are in sepia ink. I aim to use different inks in different ways for the next ones. Enjoy!
Day 1: Fast (ball through the sky),
Day 2: Noisy (80’s boombox)
Day 3: Collect (Squirrel collecting a nut)
Day 4: Hungry (Hungry monster)
Day 5: Sad (Sad dog)
Day 6: Hidden (Hidden ninja girl)
Day 7: Lost (Lil’ girl lost)
Day 8: Rock (Rock Golem holding a stick of rock)
Day 9: Broken (Broken down machine)
Day 10: Jump (Man jumping to reach for the star)
That’s all for now, stay tuned for the next batch of images next week!
