This was my first year ever participating in Inktober. I normally consider myself a digital-only person, but this past year I’ve gotten back into drawing in my sketch book, and seeing as how I am 100% freelance I had a little more time and no more excuses to not participate. These are some of my favorites from the challenge.
And it was definitely a challenge! I haven’t used ink in a really long time and all I had were pens and markers. It was really fun to experiment with different styles, using hashing or block shading or even figuring out how to create texture with a marker that was drying out. I will definitely be participating again next year and will probably even continue to do more ink drawings throughout the year.
Some of these were just generic Halloween themed images (like witches, ravens, vampires, etc.), and some were inspired by my own stories.
