Start of Inktober 2015

INKtober 2015.

Inktober is a drawing challenge started by a Utah artist named Jake Parker. Basically, it is to challenge artist to draw with ink, everyday, for the rest of October.

I have never really joined this before even if I had heard of it years ago. Why? Too busy, too lazy, to many excuses I have that doesn't really matter, because at the end of the day, I am 31 less of ink drawings..

But this year, 2015, I decided, why not? It really is a great way for me to practice my skill and creativity. It is a positive habit and a productive one to boot. So even if I am late in joining, I still pushed thru and started drawing.


Here are my first Inktober drawings:

With these ink drawing, I tried to challenge myself with subjects I won't usually draw, (well once in a while I give in to the temptation of drawing something I really like *cough*sailormoon*cough*!

I hope me sharing my sketches will inspire you (dear reader) to also join us in the fun. It's never too late to pick up the pen and draw.

What did you say? How will you join?


Here are the rules (taken from Mr. Parkers domain) :

InkTober rules:

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

4) Repeat
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 you’re consistent the better.


If you are asking what I use for these, I am just using my old Unipin 0.2 and a cheap calligraphy pen from Daiso Japan.

You can use whatever tools you want (brush pen, Liners, ballpen, nib pens, etc) as long as your medium is ink. :)

I found your blog randomly from another artist's blog and I think your style is delightful to look at! I, too, am not a graduate of an arts course but I realized that the arts is something I wanted to pursue. (I am one who is still looking for my direction in the art world, though.)

Take care and God bless!
