I did it!!! I did it!!! With a pile of sketch cards, a set of Faber-Castell Pitt Pens and Thirty One Days of October I took part in the Inktober Challenge.
For those who don’t know what Inktober is here is a quick rundown – there is an annual event for artists of all talents that runs throughout the month of October called Inktober. The idea is you draw one illustration a day with ink, black, brown, blue, red whatever…I took part is the first Inktober in 2014 and successfully finished the event with 31 individual and unique inked illustration. This is a total no prize event, just the satisfaction of crossing the line and with daily drawing practice – which only helps to strengthen your skills.
To give myself a bigger challenge (because drawing 31 unique illustrations in a months wasn’t big enough) I decided I would only use Sketch cards and Pitt Pen, and as the majority would be drawn during my lunch break I gave myself a fifteen minute time limit on each inked drawing. Now, for some artists fifteen minutes may be a huge amount time, but for me it was nothing, so I had to significantly tighten up my game.
