Pumpkin Head Scratchy PantsHello everyone. I am running out of things to say about it and it’s only the 4th post. 😀

It has been pretty difficult keeping up with this “How to” Inktober 2016 challenge. It’s healthy to push yourself into producing a video series on Youtube. It’s very important to document my process and to show how I work. Someone may relate and possibly learn something.

This a great opportunity to further hone my skills as an Illustrator and see how quickly I can pump these babies out as I mentioned before. But seriously, this does take a lot of time to produce. So I have changed my goal. It is now officially “The 10 days of InkTober 2016”. Yes, that’s right. I am limiting myself to only 10 glorious days of the InkTober challenge. OK, it’s not the 31 days of Inktober… and it’s not the ZERO days of InkTober… It’s only 10. Enjoy… I think Aaron Blaise at The Art of Aaron Blaise channel may be one of the few people who may make it to the 31st drawing.


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.
