Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my 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.
Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)
3) Hashtag it with #inktober
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.
This year I've decided to participate. I've been working a lot trying to improve my digital illustration and it's a nice way to make a traditional illustration everyday. I use a small sketch book and a SAKURA 005 along with some COPIC markers. Let's see what happens! My intention is to build a story but as this is the first time I do something like this, I don't know if it will come to a good end, at least we can laugh about it...
This is the sketch book, I share it because I love this brand because the paper is recycled, it has 30% cotton and it's soft and you can use copics or watercolor without worrying about the next page.
As I don't want to spam the blog with all the drawings, I'll be sharing them once a week. Every 7 days. If you want to see the daily drawings you can find them in my Instagram, user: cuquetafera. Or Facebook page.
