wrapping up Inktober with an Inktober Calendar

Top post on IndiBlogger, the biggest community of Indian Bloggers


Inktober came to a close and so that's wrapped up. Thanks to Jake Parker who started it all! This was my first time and I enjoyed every bit of it, definitely a learning experience. Each avenue opens up new possibilities, right? I had never thought that I would ever do this long a series and that too on insects! Though it was a random and a sudden one as I very much wanted to keep myself busy in some form or the other. So all through October, until afternoon, I was pretty occupied with my inktober series.

In case you would like to go through my earlier posts - Week1, Week2, Week3, Week4.

Insights:

No topic/theme is small.
A long series is definitely worth a try as you can come up with a good number of works, at least studies.
Play with ideas.
Get inspired by lot of talent around (get to see loads of style).
No pressure as such as you are not really answerable to anyone except you.
Helps fine-tune your skill.
Set a time for it...could become a habit.
Continue this practice.
Draw in a tribe.


Fifth week works:

Inktober-Week5-HuesnShades
Robberfly, Leaf-footed insect
Metallic wasp,Flower mantis
Buff-tip moth



Finally this is my Inktober calendar - Insect series!!

Awesome job, Deepa. Over the course of the month, I saw many of your inktober creations on instagram and they were all so perfect.
Truly inspiring too.
