Hello nekos & nekoresses!
It's november now and the end of october has been made. The #Inktober
challenge 2015 is over and I'm happy to say that... I finished it 100%, without a single day missed. It was a very hefty challenge in regards that I was very busy with my degree project, but it's such a satisfying feeling to have accomplished the challenge despite the amount of other work in the way.
My Inktober challenge were a little tweaked by me and a friend. It started out that I was going to take the challenge together with my friend, as a fun test to see both our different mind-set on our artworks. We came up with different themes for each day and we would draw something in ink along with the mentioned theme.
People do their inktober challenge differently. I did mine by checking what theme it is for the day, then start a pencil sketch on it. Afterwards, I start the inking process. Depending on the condition of myself and the moment, the inked artworks could take from 30 minutes to a rough 4 hours.
:bademoticon: Some awnsered questions
:bademoticon: What was your sole purpose of taking part of the inktober challenge 2015?
Back in 2014 mid October, I heard about this challenge, but did not participate in it. The reason were being 'afraid', or not 'ready' to do so, and not to mention I found out about it in the mid of the month, so I would not be able to do it from the start. I promised myself that I would take the challenge next year, coming all prepared. Aside from that, I promised myself that I would draw much more in the future due to barely drawing back then, so I saw inktober as a great opportunity to do this. What did you gain from the inktober challenge?
I gained a good drawing habit, lessening on my lazyness. I gained more discipline along on the way, and my skills were improved, both in drawing and inking technique.
Which of your submissions are your favourite ones?
Personally, day 16 (Indulgence), 18 (art tools), 24 (buildings/houses) and 29 (Ice) are my favourite ones. Do you plan to take the inktober challenge year 2016?
Hopefully yes. Any tips to your watchers or the ones reading this journal about the inktober?
Yes. Do take the challenge if you really are into drawing! It is a great challenge to test yourself. Wether you have alot of busy work or school, spend atleast an hour or three à day on the challenge. Not only is it a challenge, but it will change your future settings when it comes to drawing. You will be able to draw more and be less lazy.
