I wanted to spruce up this morning’s Inktober illustration by editing in one of my old winter backgrounds. I may not know why this kid headed out into the deep unknowns of some wintery land, but I like it!
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.
