Since 2011, I have been partaking in Inktober. If you are not familiar with the month long drawing challenged, it is when you draw everyday for the month of October with ink. Originally, there were rules but since the first Inktober they have all been broken. Now, most people add challenges daily such as topics to draw or the alternative Drawlloween in which each day is a Halloween themed topic.
The original rules were draw straight to ink, sketch for 20 mins. Post no matter what you drew. Nowadays, I tend to just do an ink drawing with or without a pencil sketch underneath. It really helps jog the drawing muscle and keeps you active until the end of the year. Even if you’re not an artist, it’s a good idea to get into a daily challenge to just get the creative juices flowing.
It certainly helps for me.
