Inktober Challenge

Happy Wednesday!

So, it's that time of year again - Inktober. If you've never heard of it: "every October, artists all over the world take on the Inktober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month."

I decided to give it a try because I love inking! It's always one of my favourite parts of completing an illustration. My personal objective is to encourage myself to sketch more random things for fun outside work, without getting OCD about details. And I've given myself a theme: tokens and characters from my favourite films. So far, I've been keeping up, sharing my little ink drawings on my Instagram and Twitter pages each day. I've been drawing pretty small on some scrap watercolour paper and here's what I have so far:

Fawkes from "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" | 3.5 x 2.65" | micron pens

The Leaf of Lorien brooch from "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy | 2.75 x 2.75" | bamboo pen +microns
The Key to Hamunaptra from "The Mummy" | 2.75 x 2.375" | micron pens
The element stones from "The Fifth Element" | 2.125 x 2.5" | micron pens
A scene from "The Third and the Seventh" | 3 x 4.5" | ink wash
The subway butterfly from "You've Got Mail" | 2 x 2.45
The Mayan dagger/map from "The Fountain" | 2.5 x 3" | microns, marker + gouache
Elsa's sovereign's orb from "Frozen" | 2 x 2" | pencil + microns
Are you also doing the Inktober challenge? Share a link to where you post your drawings!

Have a great week!
