Inktober 2018

Once again I am participating in Inktober, where artists are encouraged to do a drawing every day using ink. Last year, I just kinda did whatever I felt like and just did them all in my sketchbook. This time, I am following the official daily prompts list as suggested by Inktober creator Jake Parker to get ideas for what to draw every day. But I’m also keeping to a theme of my own, with every entry being some kind of weird girl character. Hey, what can I say? I just like drawing weird girls.

Also, all of my drawings are being done on artist trading cards, which are 2.5″x3.5″. I was thinking that choice would make things easier and less time consuming, but maybe not! It has its own challenges drawing that small, but the results are pretty cool when a bunch of them are together. Here’s a look at the first 6 days worth of drawings in a binder.

I wouldn’t say that all of my drawings thus far are really good. Some of them are ok, and some of them could have used some corrections. But Inktober isn’t really about that. It’s about trying your best to make something consistently and practicing new things. So far, I have not missed a day, and I plan on seeing it through to the bitter, ink-covered end.
