Inktober 2018: Week 1

Last minute, I decided to try Inktober again this year.

I made a point of not buying anything new, cutting up some watercolour paper and just doing it. This week I’ve focused on UK Folklore/mythology.

Next week I’d like to improve my photos (I keep taking them after work at night), find my Sakura Microns (!!!!), and maybe use some larger paper. I also “cheated” and used my iPad on the 5th day - going to try not to do that again!

Who else is doing Inktober this year? Let me know!

Inktober Week 4

Kind of...I only made one! I had to go away for work from the 25th to the 28th so completely ruined my routine and didn't have time to draw. It was NOOOON STOP.

I have learnt something from 3 solid weeks of drawing though - A5 is just too small! I want to step up my game and pack in a bit more detail and A5 just isn't cutting it for me.

I didn't mind the Moleskine watercolour sketchbook paper as much as I thought I would though, and would definitely go as far to say I will buy another one! Maybe A4 next time...after reading a lot of bad reviews for them since their paper switch up I was expecting it to be completely unworkable, but it was fine for me. Maybe I'm not as picky with paper as I thought I was. Either that or I haven't experienced truly GOOD paper!
