Inktober

That’s right, guys. I’m at it again!

I don’t know if you follow me on Instagram but last year I took part in Inktober which is a drawing challenge for anyone and everyone who likes to draw. The challenge is to do a drawing in ink everyday – the reason it’s ink? You can’t scrub out a line once you’ve drawn it! Inktober is all about embracing the wildness of drawing; learning, growing, learning to throw caution to the wind and just see what comes out – it’s not about perfection but practice in the face of self-censorship. I hope that makes sense!

There are daily prompts on what to drawer but you don’t have to follow them – I certainly don’t! I enjoy drawing TV and Movie stuff so a lot of my sketches are characters. I like to change up my style every now and then so sometimes I try to be more detailed, sometimes more cartoonish and sometimes I scratch the pen to the paper, hate it, and move on!

Here are my first couple from this year;

I’m not going to lie; I dislike them both but that’s fine with me! I have forgotten how to draw, for some reason, but need to re-learn ASAP because I have to illustrate the chapter pages for my next self-published novella… it’s fun.

Follow me on Instagram if you’d like and take part in the challenge if you want. There’s no right or wrong way to do it!
