inktober 2016 last four days one postFINALLY! I am finished.

Hello my Billonies! This is the last post for the Inktober 2016 speed sketch challenge. I wanted to participate in it this year but I had to limited myself to only 10 Inktober sketches. I think it is better than not participating at all.  😀

Now that I am finished, this will give me the opportunity to move on to other creative things on my YouTube channel. I would like to focus more on details and improving my technique without having to rush through sketching, filming, editing, audio, etc. I am well aware that the term “speed sketch” doesn’t actually mean you have to draw something as quickly as possible. You simply need to draw normally and speed up the footage in post. HOWEVER… in my head… I kept thinking “This is a speed sketch! This is a speed sketch! This is a speed sketch!” Hehehe. …and I would actually find myself sketching a fast as I could. Crazy. You can actually tell by the quality of the work. 😀

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. Who knows, you may learn something. I learn something new every day.

Below is a collection of the last four videos of my Inktober 2016 challenge. Please watch, enjoy and share!

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.
