Hey y'all! I know I've seen a few of us on here say we wanted to work on our drawing and maybe use the prompts from Inktober52.

@Everstorm @TrashcanCarla

For those who don't know what Inktober is: For the past little bit now, Inktober has been giving a list of daily drawing prompts for the month of October. They also have what they call Inktober52 where they have one prompt/week throughout the year. The prompts are released on Thursday and you can do whatever you will with the prompt. More information can be found here.

 

I'll do my best to come and drop the prompt when it comes out on Thursdays so it'll be here. But feel free to find it on your own! :)

 

Would love for y'all to share your ink here!!!

 

Happy Inking

~ Asha

I had to grab my twenty seconds of courage to attempt this.  There are so many amazing artists here, and I feel self-conscious of my very underdeveloped artistic skills.  However, if I don't practice, I won't improve.  So here is to 52 weeks of practice!

Thanks!  I like your take on the old and new year.  It's fun to see how different artists develop the same concept.

Awesome work, y'all! I didn't get a notification about this thread even though I was tagged, which is weird... Glad to have found it!

 

Here are my contributions:

I should add that I'm not exactly new to drawing but am new to ink and brush... Really want to figure out best practices, style and such over the course of the year!

I plan on finishing the color and adding more details later, but this is what it looks like for now.

So...can I count last week's submission twice? 😆

lol. You can do whatever! It's your art. :) When I saw your picture I actually thought "if there's a shadow prompt, that would be fun to try." And then this prompt happened. 😂

Ok, I did something a little different for shadow.  I tried wet on wet ink washes.  It was good to try, but then I am too impatient waiting for the wash to dry so I can paint layers over it 😆

I love it, @Everstorm!

And I totally get the patience difficulty when it comes to doing washes. OMG I have no patience at all in either ink or watercolor. I should consider getting up and doing a chore or some squats or something to pass the time instead of like staring at the thing.

 

I need to come up with a simple concept because every "shadow" thing I come up with is either too complicated or too Jungian lol.

Yes, I have had to make some decisions based on practical scale, too.  I want Inktober to be a fun challenge, not an overwhelming project.
