Inktober 52 by Jake Parker

Of course when you have a good thing going you don’t want it to stop or be confined to a small period in the year. So Jake Parker has come up with a way to extend this to the rest of the year. No wonder some people get irritated that he is trying to make money off this by trademarking what essentially started off as a few drawing contest.

Those who participated in this year’s inktober will see that 40-44 are from this year’s prompt list. There is also crossover with Drawlloween and other lists since they are just starting points.
Satellite day 45 prompt for inktober 52 in tinted charcoal
Day 1 inktober 52 prompt of Flight in ink
Day 2 prompt shadow in fineliner
Sookie Stackhouse and Bill Compton from True Blood for the Drawlloween day 6 prompt of vampire and the inktober52 week/day 7 prompt of dinner in fineliner.
Week/Day 4 inktober 52 snake. Nagini from Harry Potter fineliner.

Inktober 2020

Week 1

My first inktober drawings using a fine liner
Week 2 but in graphite still following the monochrome rule
Week 3 using high colour ink washes, white permanent marker and some primal prompts totally disobeying the monochrome rule
I coloured in my week 1 drawings so they look more alive now.
Week 4 using fine liners and ink as I’m not really a pen and ink kind of person
Day 27 music using fine liner and calligraphy ink as this is the closest I get to monochrome really
Week 4 I can’t draw freehand but I can copy quite well. I also have a problem with hands.
I thought clown shoes would give me ample practice but there so simple cartoon ones.
I did 2 as I first did this in charcoal and then ink but all you can see is ink
This is the second one I just did in charcoal
Here I did various comic book/popular culture spiders as I had some new fineliners and ink I wanted to try out.

I have enjoyed doing this and I have also started on doing other drawing prompts like Drawlloween etc. There are so many that this post would become overloaded with pictures if I posted them all here. So I made another post to do just that!

Covid ink drawings and paintings

I have been doing some oil paintings recently along with some ink drawings and Covid has infiltrated my brain.

I didn’t realize there was a prompt list for Inktober so I drew this instead.
It was very difficult to paint this artwork but it’s proved popular with viewers so far.
This was my first Covid inspired artwork
This is the second but you would have to be a Pokemon fan to realise that.
