Inktober 2017

It’s been a while since I’ve posted artworks that are self-indulgent. Last month after our first watercolor workshop, I decided that I would do this year’s Inktober. So what is inktober? From its creator’s website:

Every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

To be honest, I’ve already heard about inktober years ago. Every year I tried to do the prompt, but I never did complete a whole month. So I challenged myself this year to complete the prompt even if I’m already busy with interior & painting works. There’s only one problem: I didn’t like the official prompt HAHA. (Pictured below)

But! There are a bunch of new prompts created every year by different artists so you could also choose from those. I chose relseiy‘s prompt, named #reltober. Here is her prompt:

I thought it suited my style so I chose this. My goals for this year’s inktober were:

  • Finish the whole month. (Even if I can’t draw everyday!)
  • Draw more different flowers asides from sunflowers.
  • Practice my inking/lineart skills again.
  • Practice drawing hands.
  • Self indulge in my anime style & other styles.

Did I achieve my goals? Find out below! You can click each image and it will direct you to its original instagram post.

Although a bit late, I still managed to finish this year’s Inktober! Since drawing everyday was impossible (during that time I was travelling for interior design work), I decided that whenever I had the time I would draw a bunch of drawings. Props to those who managed to draw everyday! ♥

Did I complete my goals? Well, I think so! I finished the whole month, practiced my inking/lineart skills by drawing different subjects (flowers, hands, nature), and let myself indulge in trying different art styles. I was so tempted to color some of my artworks using my markers, but I managed to stop myself from doing that because I want it to be monochromatic in my IG feed.

My personal favorites would be: Wind, Sunflowers, Spark, Constellation, and Gem Stone. ♥ What about your’s?

Will I do it again next year? Hopefully!
