Inktober week 4

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


The final week of Inktober is here and am quite satisfied with the art I have been able to create and pull together over the last 4 weeks. I am more satisfied with the fact that I have become a little more confident than I was with my hand in ink works. I have been in the practice of creating almost everyday (some days it's not posible too) since 2012 though not everything is worth showing. It's been a sort of practice but Inktober definitely gave me a purpose and clarity as to what I need to do for a whole month starting with a theme (as you know I am not following the official prompt though). 

For my earlier 3 Inktober posts, you can click HERE, HERE and HERE.

I have also been trying my hand, extremely gradual process though...started by August last week, at Derwent Intense blocks which I had bought from Dubai when we were in Dubai last summer. I have used Winsor and Newton postcards for that which again I had bought from Dubai some 3 years back. Will be posting it soon after this challenge.

Here's my last 7 days of insect art.
