Inktober Horse

I can’t draw.

Correction. Everyone can draw. Everyone can write. Everyone can dance. Everyone can paint. Ability? That’s a different story. Mine is such that I wouldn’t want to draw in the public square and scare the horses. And yet I find myself intrigued by Inktober.

Inktober Rules:
1) Make a drawing in ink
2) Post it
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2019
4) Repeat

I have chosen the 5k option.

“Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week.” Rules

This meshes well with my graphic posts on Sunday. For tools, I have gone with hand-drawn, black ink, and brush pen, although I may switch to technical pen if I do any lettering.

“That’s it! Now go make something beautiful.” Rules


Well, I don’t know about beautiful. Mainly I have proven that

a) I was not wrong about my artistic ability.
b) The list is vast of things I am willing to do for a blog post.

I tried to do a head-on sketch of Milton from life. When I added the round nostrils at the end of this long face, the result was disconcertingly genitalic. We’ll skip those.

What are you doing for October?

Paper: Canson Mix Media, spiral bound, 98 lb
Pen: not sure, possibly Prismacolor brush tip
Digitization: cell phone camera
Post-production: resized, border, & watermark in GIMP
Retouching: None. (B/c I don’t know how.)
A materials list appears to be an art thing.

Thank you for reading,

  1. So bad I’m good?

    I don’t knit but it seems that the variations and challenges would be endless.

    To hashtag, you put the number symbol/pound sign/tic-tac-toe mark in front of the word or phrase. Then you can search by that word or phrase. It’s more of a thing for Instagram & other social media (?). I did it here b/c it was part of the format.
