Inktober Drawing – Medusa

Description I am doing Inktober this year, and using the official prompt list. My theme has to do with creepy stories, which may include personal ghost stories, a bit of creepypasta and folklore. For Day 4, the prompt was “Freeze”. Medusa was cursed with looks that could literally turn you to stone. Materials used: Paper: Koh-i-Noor 9×12 sketchbook – heavy […]

Inktober 2019 – Tell Me a Story

It’s been two years since I did the last Inktober and this year, I’m determined to return to this challenge. I always feel that I improve my art somewhat after I do this challenge, so this year I do want to push the limits again. With that, I may commit to a theme. Since it’s October, it will be a […]

Inktober 2017 – Week Four

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.  

Inktober 2017 – Week Three

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.

Inktober 2017 – Week Two

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 […]

Inktober 2017 – Week One

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, […]

Inktober 2015 Week 2

Week 2, and I’m a getting a little bit more comfortable with pencil, ink and paper.  I’m starting to block out dark areas, which I’m not sure is a great idea.  Some of these drawings work, while others are just kind of meh.  I can see a lot of problems with anatomy proportions , and ink control.   I think […]
