What has become an annual tradition among artists internationally is Inktober. Inktober is basically a monthly challenge, where the artist creates an ink sketch every day for the month of October. It doesn’t matter if it’s traditional ink, digital, or you create a sketch with a splash of watercolor. The point is to have the artist draw something everyday for that month. The website itself will explain more.
Inktober started introducing it’s prompts in 2016, but it’s not necessary to follow. The prompts are basically suggestions. Technically you can draw whatever you want, just as long as it’s ink. Again, either traditional or digital.
So here’s my first Inktober sketch. At first I was going with the Inktober prompt idea of ‘poisonous.’ The end result went into something else. Well, I suppose the subject matter might be considered ‘poisonous.’
Without further ado, here’s Inktober sketch number uno. That’s it for now. I’m getting tired. I’ve noticed that when I post on this blog while semi-sleepy, there’s a few typos the next day. Inktober # 2 should follow very shortly. There’s probably going to be a gap after Inktober # 3, due to this weekend being NYCC.
