I tried to be a bit prepared for this year’s Inktober, but as usual it came with its share of unexpected challenges.
As in previous years, I tried to have a bit of a think about the prompts before the day itself, mostly by creating a sort of mood board of inspiration for each word.
I was extremely excited to start this year’s Inktober, especially as I’d not been very active on Instagram for a while (Covid, busyness etc) so of course it was an extra challenge that I was immediately blocked by Instagram for two weeks for no reason and with no way to appeal.
As far as each day’s drawing, I used one of my standard exercise books to draw one or several preliminary sketches for each prompt.
The final product
For this year’s final output I made an A3 poster of all the drawings on one sheet. I was really pleased that the dark image (Day 18 – Moon, which is the most dominant) fell in the middle of the series.
This poster is now available to buy here.
