Last year was my first time participating in Inktober. It’s a fun and creative challenge that connects artists, but it also requires some preparation and planning for how to effectively produce one design every day beside your regular work and everyday activities. As always, I wanted to create the best drawings possible to not only practice and showcase my skills but also to be able to utilize them in the future. However drawing quickly and not going into too much detail was something I needed to practise. I gave myself an hour to create each illustration and most of the time I still managed to double the time. I got gradually better, but simplifying was definitely the greatest challenge. Inktober and similar challenges are great for practicing and having fun at the same time and I’m looking forward to the next one.
Here are some of my illustrations that I made during this challenge. For more examples, follow my Instagram.
Prompts were: mindless, bait, build and freeze.
