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 drew some more Sims Fan art and spent a little more time on this one.
I’m having a small flare-up of carpal tunnel syndrome, and a mild dip in inspiration/motivation for a little bit there. I’ve still found some time to draw before being completely burned out. Also, catching up with “The Walking Dead” and taking in “The Crown” on Netflix has eaten up a bit of my spare time. Does this mean we’ll be seeing more British Royalty fan art popping up in the near future? Aside from an Anne Boleyn piece I’ve put aside months ago, not bloody likely.
