InkTober 2016 - Day 6 - Lil' Heather Head Hunter - Bill SchiffbauerHello my Billonies! We are officially over the hump with this project. Day number 6 of the InkTober 2016 challenge. Today’s speed sketch is called “Lil’ Heather Head Hunter”. She’s a real cutie but don’t let that fool you. πŸ™‚

We are sooo close but yet so far. I really love doing this speed sketch thing. I might just make it the theme of this channel. “Bill Schiffbauer Ink.” πŸ™‚Β  Basically making this focus of this channel to be a “How to” speed sketch style thing… but in ink… and not just make it exclusive to the Inktober 2016 challenge. Make it an on going thing. I am going to give it a shot.

Anyway, check out my ever growing Inktober speed sketch video series on Youtube. Hopefully you enjoy the way I document my process and to show how I work.Β  Who knows, you may learn something. I know I always do.

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. πŸ™‚


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.
