Daily Drawing Challenge: Enter InkTober!

Wow! Has it already been a week since my last post? I’ve been quite swamped by school work but I am making good progress on my projects. While I do not think I’ll be 100% done weeks in advance with tonnes of free time to play around in, I do think that I can get the bulk of my course load done so that I am free to focus on my practicum. Four weeks of being in the classroom is a lot of work, so I want to be able to give it my all.

The following drawings are from Sept 27 to October 3rd. I’m participating in InkTober for the first time ever, so you’ll notice a change in my drawings done this month. If you’ve never heard of InkTober, it is a month long drawing challenge started by Jake Parker. Back in 2009, Jake challenged himself to draw and ink a picture every day and he shared those drawings with the world through his blog. More info and the official prompts list can be found here. It’s been strange to adjust to following prompts as my inspiration, but I’m liking the challenge thus far. I’ve allowed myself to use references for this month, since I want to create images that respond to the prompts as best as I can. While I am liking the close study of objects through using references, I do kinda miss the freedom of just drawing whatever like I did when I forbid myself from using any reference of any kind at the start of my daily drawing challenge.

Here are my little art babies born this week:
