The prompt for today was “ring”, so being a big Lord of the Rings nerd, this was a pretty easy one for me to think of. Still, while it may lack in originality, it was fun to do!
This will be my first year participating, but every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one INK drawing a day the entire month. Each time, a prompt (like the one above) is given to help jump start the creative juices. You don’t have to utilize it, but I think it makes it cooler. Anyone can participate, and it’s a terrific way to help motivate ourselves and others to not only get work done, but to embrace our creative sides.
There are some pretty extravagant participators out there; artists who spend hours every day inking amazing things, but I decided that I will spend the month mostly inking images for my forthcoming book, My Yearbook Nightmare! This way, I can participate in the challenge while still staying focused on a book many of you have already pre-ordered.
MY GOAL is to post a newly inked illustration everyday for the month of October. Feel free to call me out and encourage/push me to stay true to this. I’m excited, nervous, motivated and, perhaps best of all, 100% capable of nailing this challenge. I’d love it if you stuck around.
