Here we are again! A quick explanation if you aren’t familiar with this early autumn ritual I and many others embark upon known as INKtober. From the inaugural post 3 years ago:
It’s a month long appreciation of the art of drawing in ink and the practitioners that embrace that art. To celebrate I’m posting one ink drawing a day for the entire month. No pencils, no water colors, no photoshop, just the unadulterated black and white beauty of thick black ink on crisp white paper. Drawing with ink means commitment. There’s no hemming and hawing as to which pencil line you’re going to use, no sitting on the fence of values, no pussy footing with color. When you make your mark you better mean it. It’s black and white. True or false. On or off. And that’s what Inktober is all about.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on your blog or tumblr, twitter, facebook, flickr, or just pin it on your wall.
3) Hashtag it with #inktober
4) Repeat (you can do it daily, like me, 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.)
Lastly, for this INKtober I really want to work on my character design skills and develop some concepts for a project I want to do next year. I don’t draw bad guys too much so here’s one:
