Inktober 2017

Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day for the entire month. As I have work during the day, I knew that time wasn't going to allow me to do one everyday (that I would be pleased with because real ink is time consuming and hard for me! haha) BUT I really wanted to join in the Inktober fun and have a go at coming up with quick ideas based on the official prompt list by Mr Jake Parker.

Prior to this, I had purchased a book Framed Ink: Drawing and Composition for Visual Storytellers by Marcos Mateu-Mestre (which by the way, is SO worth the money! I'm looking to buy his other books soon). Long story short, I was so amazed and inspired that I decided for Inktober, to do sketchy digital composition exercises (like how Mateu-Mestre does) and practise my storytelling abilities inspired by the word prompts! Below are the results:

Missed a few days but I've really enjoyed doing these and really proud of myself for completing this many pieces! Maybe next year I'll try using proper ink? Also, I do have plans to take some of these and develop them further, maybe even paint them with colour! Not sure when I'll do this yet, but knowing me, it'll probably be in the new year.. *fingers crossed*
