Inktober 2018 by ninjatron Inktober 2018 by ninjatron
It's over! I finished all 31 days of Inktober. This year, I used the official Inktober prompts list to get my ideas, but I also added my own layers to the challenge.

First, every drawing had to be of a female character, usually being something weird or different than just a normal human, like a robot or an alien, but still have charm and appeal. Second, I drew them all on 2.5" x 3.5" artist trading cards. These are small! At first I thought it would be easier and faster to just draw something small instead of spending all day filling up a sketchbook page, but that kind of backfired on me since drawing so small took patience and precision. But having a bunch of finished cards all together like this sure does look cool, and I'm happy to say that I made it through the entire month finishing one card per day on time and without missing any. You can see everything as it unfolded on my Instagram and my Tumblr , though I did make a few minor corrections on some of the entries shortly after taking the picture.

My favorites are the Gem Girl for day 16 (Angular) and the axe-wielding girl fighting evil trees for day 24 (Chop). Which ones do you like?

They look like '90s trading cards...
Their detail is amazing.
