I’m a little sad to see Inktober over this year. I had a lot of fun with this challenge. I am happy to say I’ve completed it! It would be the first Inktober I’ve officially won! :) Read more
This is the last full week of Inktober 2017. I’m not going to lie, I’m feeling tired. I feel like I’m in a creative rut, I’m also experiencing serious self esteem issues. I try new things, and when they don’t seem to work, I fall a little bit. It’s just the way it goes. Read more
Time has been my enemy on this third week of Inktober. I feel like I’ve been attempting different things with varying degrees of failure and success. It’s obvious to me that I need more practice with elements such as human anatomy, light and shadow and composition. So basically everything. I’ve also felt like I don’t have enough time to create the drawings I want, or even to explore what I’m weak at, so my drawings feel simple and rushed and I miss glaring mistakes. It’s easy to feel bad about it, throw up papers and declare my art sucks, but I’ll just keep plugging away. Read more
I’m in the second week of Inktober, and it’s in full swing. I’ve observed elsewhere that leading up to this month, the idea of participating in Inktober was intimidating to me. The challenge is to create 31 drawings… in ink. I’m a digital artist, it’s the medium I know, love, and am used to. Breaking out of that is a big challenge to me, I’m sure I’ve said this before.
Inktober 2017 is looking amazing this year, with over a million posts shared so far according to the founder of the challenge, Jake Parker. I’m glad to be participating this year.
As I’ve said before, Inktober gives me an excuse to break out of digital art for a month and use traditional tools like pencils, paper and ink. In 2015, when I last participated, I had a small sketch book, a few micron pens and would just draw fan art on the couch. Read more
I participated in Inktober in 2015, and it was a challenge. Inktober is a drawing challenge where you draw one ink drawing for 31 days this month. Trying to decide what to draw every evening was difficult enough, and then I had to draw with actual ink on actual paper. As you could see, this is intimidating to me. It still is, so I decided to take on the Inktober 2017.
