I was watching Jake Parker’s Youtube video about Inktober and decided to participate too. ->link for the video.
He created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. ->Read more here.
Rules are simply, during October draw something with ink every day and post it on your instagram. It Is easy, grab your pen and start drawing.
Here is some of my inktober illustrations what I made 2016.
In the beginning I felt that it was hard to find time for drawing every day, but after first week it started to feel more natural. There is topic for each day which help a lot, but still It is good for one’s imagination to think what to draw. Actually I found myself thinking around the topic during my workday, so at the evening when it was time to draw I knew what to do.
I warmly recommend this challenge for everybody. It gives you a schedule and and project which helps a lot when dealing with actual client projects.
