Inktober 2018

My art and thoughts from my second time participating in the month-long challenge

Hooray, I just finished the Inktober challenge this year. I drew a different illustration each day in ink based on the prompts provided by the challenge. I also made each illustration space themed since I’ve been working on a sci-fi comic.

Last year I didn’t follow the prompts which made it difficult to figure out what to illustration. I’m glad I stuck with ’em this year.

Here are some of my favorite illustrations from the challenge:

I had a blast adapting each prompt. Inktober was a fun way to start each day. Participating in Inktober again builds my confidence because I can pretty clearly see how I’ve grown as an artist since last year. I’ve still got a lot to learn, but I’m getting better and truly enjoying it.

I put all of the illustrations together into a PDF if you want to check them all out.
