Inktober was started by artist Jake Parker over 10 years ago. The idea is simple, a challenge for artists to draw something with ink each day for the month of October. Personally, I’m not a heavy inker, but I do like to dabble with different brushes. I thought I’d give this a go, and this was my first attempt for October 1.

I followed the official prompt list as closely as I could. And I’m posting this all backwards since they’ve already been drawn, color corrected and posted on twitter for the world to see.

With each picture, I’ll write a small excerpt including the tools used, state of mind or what I was trying to achieve with each piece.

Pentel brush pen on 80lb (I think) sketchbook paper. Started off with Blue pencil sketch. Inktober prompt was ‘Ring’. Tron seemed to fit the bill.
