Open those sketchbooks and dust off the pens! Inktober is here, which is an initiative to spend some some quality time sketching and inking drawings and illustrations.
An artist named Jake Parker started doing this back in ’09 and it has really caught on. He started it as a way to get better and more confident at drawing and inking. This is a guy after our own heart here at ArtPrompts.org! By the end of his first “Inktober”, he saw improvement. Here are some quick words from Jake:
“Shoot for something that’s going to push you.”
“It’s not about making the greatest drawings, it’s about developing positive drawing habits.”
Join the initiative and add your works to the influx of great black and white drawings that pop up all over the internet during this time of year. Here are the rules -pretty easy, huh?
