Back for another year! When October the 1st comes around, it's time to get your tools ready (be it analog or digital) and get cracking!
Inktober was started by Jake Parker, here's what he has to say about it:
31 Days 31 Drawings
Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.
Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).
2) Post it on your blog (or tumblr, instagram, twitter, facebook, flickr, Pinterest or just pin it on your wall.)
3) Hashtag it with #inktober
Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more youre consistent the better.
That's it! Now go make something beautiful.
InkTober is, by now, a bit of a NeoGAF tradition! Do yourself a favor and check out the 2015 and 2016 editions. Props to ExMachina for getting it going last year
