Inktober 2018 – Update

So… I have finally accepted reality after struggling to find the time to draw in the past couple of days. I have given my best and am really proud as to all the pieces I was able to make for Inktober so far. But, alas! I cannot keep up the daily drawing due to life events of extreme importance (health, exams, etc.) so I’ll still try my best to do some of the remaining Inktober days but for now, I’m coming out of this challenge this year.

Again, I’m really proud of myself for sticking on this far, especially given it’s my first official time participating in this challenge! I learned so much in the days that I was able to participate so I’m really happy! The first and main goal is to have fun and to learn a lot about art and inking, both of which I was able to accomplish each day. I also now know how to work in some drawings in my currently insane work schedule. So, it’s a win for me!

There is always next year and that goal of 31 drawings in October is still there! I ain’t losing hope!

See you around in my other art postings!

P.S. I have some super ambitious projects being planned for 2019 so I can’t wait to announce those things as well, soon!

Peace, my friends ^.^

Inktober 2018 Is About To Begin!

Inktober 2018 starts tomorrow! The goal is going to be doing all 31 days this year. This is also the first year I’ll be officially participating in this month long challenge.

I’ll be using the official prompts list with some days being my own prompts. The materials I’ll be using are my sketchbook (I think it’s A3 size?), Snowman ink pens, Pentel Brush pen, and digital medium when possible. I’ve already been thumb-nailing some pieces so I’m hoping it should ease the work load and pressure on doing an ink drawing daily.

Be sure to follow the blog as I’ll be posting all my pieces here with commentary on what inspired each piece.

So, are you ready to get inking? Let’s do it!


Just as an FYI in case you’re wondering….What is Inktober?

Inktober (started by Jake Parker) is a month long challenge in October where artists aim to do one ink drawing per day for all 31 day. That’s it!
