Hello everyone. Well, here we are at the half way mark.  Day number 5 of the InkTober 2016 challenge. Today’s image is called Tree Arm Tina and Eddie Bumble. If you watch the video you will see why. It really makes no sense.

I am really having fun with this but I think I will not go through the whole filming the process next October. That way I will probably be able to make it through the full 31 days if I only have to sketch. It is so difficult keeping up with this “How to” style filming of the Inktober 2016 challenge.  Yeah, I know it’s great to challenge yourself… but there just ain’t enough hours in the day. 🙂

Anyway, check out my growing Inktober speed sketch video series on Youtube. It’s very important to document my process and to show how I work. Someone may relate, be entertained or possibly learn something.

So once again… It is now officially “The 10 days of InkTober 2016”. Yes, that’s right. I have set the limit to only 10 days of the InkTober challenge. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it. 🙂


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.
