Inktober is back. Are you taking the #inktober2019 challenge? Like many challenges, there’s a lot of direction if you want it: like daily prompts and how-to videos. But there’s nothing stopping you from loosely interpreting it or doing just some of the days. It’s great to do them all, but some is better than none. And that’s the spirit I’m going with this year.
I’m keeping it small, just working in one little ink sketch into my normal day. Here are this week’s pieces:
Inktober #1. Chinese Ink, Brushpen and Fude Pen.
Intober #2. Chinese Ink, Brushpen and Fude Pen.
These two are on a spread. This isn’t my normal sketchbook, just something I had but knew I didn’t love because it cracks at the binding when I flatten it (you can see that in the picture). But it works for these little sketches.
Inktober #3 and #4 on another spread. (and no, she says she is not inktober-ing).
Inktober #5. I have a set of acrylic inks and it seems like a good time to try them out. Not sure I’m feeling the medium in this piece, but I’ll give it another shot soon. Based on a Sktchy app photo
Inktober Day 6. Back to Chinese Ink and Brushpen. Also, back to my usual sketchbook, the Stillman and Birn 8×10 inch softcover Beta sketchbook.
Are you doing inktober this year? If you are, do you have a particular focus?
Remember to tag them #inktober and #inktober2019 so those of us following those tags might see them…
