Inktober 2019



It was a grueling month but Inktober is over and I made it all the way through to the end.

This year I wanted to not only follow the official prompts again, but use each prompt word to create an original robot character. I made this decision before prompts were revealed, and when they finally were, needless to say some of the words did not naturally lend themselves to becoming robotic, but I was up to the challenge of creating them!

I could not wait to get going and I started my Twitch stream on midnight of October 1st, but the power went out a few hours into it and it screwed up my computer. I had to reinstall Windows again and I felt like I was behind ever since. There were many struggles but I'm happy to have simply completed the task I put in front of me and prove that it could be done.

I drew them all in a 5.5x8.5 inch sketchbook and I wanted each to be a showcase for the robot including a background. You can take a closer look at each one and get a little bit of the story behind them on my Tumblr and Instagram My favorites are Overgrown (day 15), Treasure (day 21), Ancient (day 23), and Dizzy (day 24).
