Inktober 2016 - Day 2This “How to” Inktober is my new pet project. I wanted to push myself into producing a series of videos on Youtube to show my process and how I work. This is a great opportunity to further hone my skills as an Illustrator and see how quickly I can pump these babies out. After watching a couple videos, I have to admit it’s a little weird watching my hands at 1200% speed. It’s  just odd. It looks a little rough but what do you expect from speed sketching. I think I am taking the term a little too literally.

This is the year I make another change. Here is my second installment.

What is InkTober?

InkTober was created by Mr. Jake Parker back in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Me included.

Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.

Inktober is a time when artists draw an image a day using traditional inking tools (biro, marker, ink wash, etc.) throughout the month of October. You are free to draw whatever you like!

InkTober rules/quidelines:

  1. Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
  2. Post it online
  3. Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016
  4. Repeat

Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.
