Can you guess???
That’s right, my friends, it’s. . .
It’s officially October now, and all us artists out there know that October is really Inktober! Here’s the official prompt list, along with a few I’m considering combining with it. All rights to you respective prompt owners, @inktober, @lilaeleaf, and @furrylittlepeach!
I’m so excited for this month-long challenge — this year, I actually have Micron pens for inking instead of Sharpies, and also a much better grasp of working in black-and-white (though I do plan to try to color some). Should be posting meh arts weekly *gulp*, or at least biweekly. And I’m considering actually following a theme this time around. . . something that will knock me out of my thinking-only-of-Star-Wars mold (though, of course, who said that was a bad thing???) and force me to be more creative!
For me, Inktober is something that helps with my art skills — drawing every day for a month?? Are you kidding? That does wonders for your art. . .
as long as you don’t rush through it, that is. But it also gives me a reason to not procrastinate. I’m not sure about you guys, but I’m a terrible procrastinator. I mean really, look! I waited till the first day of Oct/Inktober to post my HEY I’M DOING INKTOBER TOO post! But it’s helpful for getting into a habit of doing something every single day. Y’know, it takes 28 days of doing the same thing once a day to form a good habit. And this is 28 plus 3 more! So if you’re like me and have trouble procrastinationing until the last minute before the deadline, I highly recommend you find a pen and sketchbook and draw along with us!
Here’s a slideshow of my art from last year’s prompt. . . looks very not-like-my-current-style by now!!!
Are you guys participating? Yes? Yay!!! I have a friend in this madness! What are your materials? You got any special ideas flowing because of those prompts? Are you using any other prompts instead of/alongside the Inktober one? Any other prompts you’d like to recommend? Shout out below!
Now, I have to go start my first day of Inktober!!! ‘Till we meet again, Kitten out!
