Today marks the last day of Inktober 2019!
Although I have participated in the past, this was the first year I was able to stick with it until the end. It was a lot more work than I anticipated but definitely feels rewarding, now that it's done.
For those who haven't heard of Inktober before, it is a month-long challenge created by artist Jake Parker. It focuses on improving one's skills and developing positive drawing habits. Every day, for the month of October, anyone participating in the Inktober challenge creates an ink drawing, based on the official prompt list, and posts it online.
Each prompt has SO MANY POSSIBILITIES, so this year, I decided to limit my options to things found in Disneyland. I sketched the items, scanned them, and then Photoshopped the inked drawings into the original photo. Perhaps a little overkill, but I wanted to keep things more authentic. I know some of my choices might be a little bit of a stretch, but I'm still happy with the overall outcome!
When you are done looking at my photos, I would like to encourage everyone to see what other artists created for Inktober on social media. It is amazing how creative people can be, and there are some fantastic pieces.
** Below are all the images I created, but if you want to see more info about each photo, I'd like to encourage you to check-out my daily posts on Instagram and/or Twitter.
