A dedicated thread for sharing works you do either following the 'official' Inktober themes, or just because you happen to draw in P&I in October!

If you would like to see the official Inktober rules and prompts (subjects) here's Jake Parker's official link... Inktober rules and prompts (https://inktober.com/rules/) .........

or, just draw your own ideas and post ..... as Jake said when he first 'designed' Inktober, the aim is to draw regularly and improve!

10-01-2018, 10:16 AM
Oh cool, a sticky thread even! I will be back later when I actually draw something.

I've added a link to post #1 for those interested in the official Inktober - although the originator's aim is simply to get people to draw with the medium and post anywhere!:)

This is my attempt at a brown recluse.

I think that one's been visiting me Tom! ... he's nicer on paper though!;)

10-01-2018, 02:11 PM
Thanks for doing this, Maureen. I try to participate each year in InkTober :rolleyes:

Welcome to WetCanvas, Tom! Now that is a mean critter :eek: Speaking of mean, here is my witch using Micron 01 pen on Stillman & Birn sketchbook, Zeta series for the Poisonous prompt; 8x6 inches:


10-01-2018, 02:56 PM
5x7", fountain pen, wancher black ink, waterbrush. Reference: bits and pieces of previous sketches at the railway station.

Great work Kay & Indraneel

Here's my Day 1 - Poisonous


Charlie's Mum
10-01-2018, 05:32 PM
Oh Wow! What exciting sketches we have above!

Kay - poisonous and evil!
Indrareel - super lines for those figures - love the freshness.
Michael - what a great drawing/narrative! surely someone will get the poisoner too?

10-01-2018, 05:48 PM
I am mostly focused on watercolor abstracts, but I'm being brave and drawing hard pen lines and representational art for Inktober.

I have been really enjoying the time travel show El Ministerio Del Tiempo, which is full of cultural references to Spanish history and art. I have a month of learning from Goya, Picasso, Dali, and Velasquez ahead of me, along with interesting obscure references.

My personal rules for myself to get the most out of this: I can work from existing media but have to freehand everything (no camera lucida to get started on the proportions) and do pen from the beginning, no pencil take-backs. I know pencil is allowed in the spirit of the original, I just am working on the confidence to put lines down without a net.

For the first day, a frame from the credits sequence: "El Tiempo Del Arte"


(C&C welcome but as I'm not composing from scratch I won't be offended if people pass on it.)

10-01-2018, 05:53 PM
excellent idea \maureen, I try and take part in inktober every year, I will be posting soon

10-01-2018, 05:56 PM
Gement, good for you for leaping without a safety net...you're braver than I am as I do a light pencil underdrawing to keep on track. Your drawing is mysterious and a bit ominous! I like it.

10-01-2018, 06:15 PM
Thanks, eeglug! Yours has great depth and form; it reminds me of Charles Addams.

indraneel, I love how loose and expressive your lines are.

KreativeK, those facial shapes! I feel like I know a lot about this person. She definitely wears hats and is never seen out of the house without eye liner.

Tom, your spider is elegant.

10-01-2018, 09:43 PM
A light, easy start for the first prompt.


10-01-2018, 11:37 PM
:thumbsup: Logan, very nice

10-02-2018, 06:13 AM
Nice work Loganart

Here's mine ......

Apologies to all ophidiophobics. :evil:

Charlie's Mum
10-02-2018, 06:28 AM
It's great to see these responses to Inktober ... and, qement, to read of your personal aims.
Drawing freehand and without a guide is challenging, but very rewarding when you realise you are getting angles and proportions etc right!.... and that's quite apart from infusing the work with emotion! Welcome to the forum ..... and there are other challenges to help you too, right here in the stuck threads!!!

Tanya, great, evil, toadstools ..... magic mushrooms!

Ron ..... help!!...... really good form and texture!

10-02-2018, 08:22 AM
Ron, nice work...even though ewwww. LOL actually we have 2 resident snakes and we’ve named them, though they are not poisonous.

Maureen, I was literally falling asleep while doing that one! Amazing there aren’t stray lines.

Two nice pieces Bonnie.:)

10-02-2018, 12:27 PM
Thanks for the kind words everybody. Really appreciate it.

This is my Day 2 drawing- Tranquil,

10-02-2018, 04:35 PM
Ron, Bonnie and Tom - nice pieces!

Here's my Day 2 Tranquil:


10-02-2018, 08:06 PM
Loving all that you guys have posted so far...:cat:

Today's response for Tranquil prompt, waterlilies 5.5x8.5 Micron 01 pen on Masters sketchbook (one of my featured images for October Landscape challenge). Watercolor may be added later :rolleyes:


10-02-2018, 08:44 PM
Everyone’s work is so great!

Here is my tranquility, which isn’t so tranquil - I think a smaller pen at first would have served well.
Tombow calligraphy pen + Pitt 005 in a SB Beta series sketchbook.


10-02-2018, 11:52 PM
Nifty waterlilies Kay!

Good work, Logan! How do you like the Beta sketchbook for ink? I'm using the Epsilon which is what is usually recommended for ink. Do the ink lines feather out a little on the Beta pages?

10-03-2018, 01:32 AM
After spending four hours shading El Capitán Alatriste (a pop fiction historical soldier) with at least two hours to go, I went and met other obligations.

So I also spent half an hour on a sketch of Alonso de Etrerrías, the historical soldier character on El Ministerio del Tiempo whose running joke is that people keep thinking he's roleplaying Alatriste. My apologies for not cropping these properly, I'm falling over.

And to think, I did Alatriste today because I didn't feel ready to bite off Las Meninas (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Las_Meninas). I hope to finish the shading on Alatriste on a later day when I haven't bitten off more than I can chew. Hahahahah. Ha.


Alatriste ref (https://www.amazon.com/El-capitan-alatriste-ARTURO-PEREZ-REVERTE/dp/8420474398), Alonso ref (https://cdn.hobbyconsolas.com/sites/navi.axelspringer.es/public/media/image/2016/04/586840-ministerio-tiempo-personajes-historicos-realidad-vs-ficcion.jpg)

(C&C Welcome, I look forward to figuring out how I keep accidentally making faces half-width so I already know that one.)

10-03-2018, 02:16 AM
Good work, Logan! How do you like the Beta sketchbook for ink? I'm using the Epsilon which is what is usually recommended for ink. Do the ink lines feather out a little on the Beta pages?

I haven’t noticed feathering, I’ll peer at it and see if the Tombow feathered. The pages are a bit rough for inking, and they’re not... comfortable drawing with the smaller pen. Maybe it’s picking up some fiber? I’m not sure.

The paper reminds me of Canson mixed media, with a slightly smoother surface.

Frankly I used this one because there’s a guest starting my studio, and the Beta was out where I could get it!:lol:

10-03-2018, 09:07 AM
Bonnie, Tom, Michael, Kay, Logan - great work.

Here's mine from yesterday.


I forgot to say I'm using an S & B Alpha 8 x 5.5 ins notebook and Uni-Pin 0.1, 0.2 pens

Can we keep this going to 31st?

Charlie's Mum
10-03-2018, 10:14 AM
Yes Ron, the thread will stay open the whole month.
Great drawings here today, good responses to the themes as well as some very nice pen strokes!

10-03-2018, 01:59 PM
Great work everyone! So 3 of us are using Stillman & Birns books, interesting. Anyway I picked Epsilon as the paper seems to be good for ink...I'm really averse to ink feathering out as I draw a line. Very recently I tried a bit of Yupo for the first time and it is the ultimate for smoothness and having a supercrisp defined line. Too bad it's a little pricey, especially if you just want to sketch or doodle. If someone commissioned me to do an ink drawing I would instantly gravitate to Yupo.

Ok so here's my rather unsavory Day 3 - Roasted:


10-03-2018, 03:16 PM
I saw another thread on this in the Art Journals forum but didn't look around.

Great works continue with Tanya's lilypads and lotus blossoms!
gement, your figures are shaping up!
Ron, I like your woman on the beach, so relaxed!
Michael, your woman roasting the cut up husband is too funny and she seems to be quite delighted!

Welcome to both Tom and Ron :wave:

10-03-2018, 08:15 PM
Day 3. I decided I need some sort of a theme, or the drawings will be all over the place. So I’m going to incorporate some animals into them.


10-03-2018, 08:56 PM
I love your owl on a cookout or camping trip, Tanya, wow!

Here is mine for the 'roasted' prompt. Stillman & Birn Zeta series, Uniball pen done today from life on a work break:


10-03-2018, 10:07 PM
Ah! Very clever Kay, and simple. Are these from memory? They’re awfully real, down to the broken shells.

10-04-2018, 03:03 AM
La Menina en El Artista (Day 3 of El Tiempo Del Arte)


Las Meninas is my favorite self portrait in all of art history and the first painting I looked at with deep appreciation, thanks to Sister Wendy the art nun on PBS. In the full painting, which is quite crowded, he is almost invisible in a darkened corner behind his easel, but he is the only figure staring at you, the viewer, with his paintbrush raised.

He is also a character on El Ministerio Del Tiempo, my chosen theme for the month. They even look through a time door into a sitting for Las Meninas on the show; the girls are petting the dog.

I can't believe I finished this one on time. So many little folds. I learned a lot from Velasques's use of angles. All kinds of little details that seem unconnected lead to tidy vertices with each other. The effect is remarkable harmony of composition. It's just subtly easy in the eyes.

10-04-2018, 05:13 AM
Tanya - I love the owl's eyes, very imaginative.
Kay - love the simplicity, great idea.

Michael - every picture really tells a story, creepy! Here's mine, a little more appetising....


Has anyone else found the S&B Alpha paper to be unforgiving with fine pens? I sometimes use a Uni-Pin 0.5 but it won't work on S&B paper.

Charlie's Mum
10-04-2018, 06:47 AM
Michael - you are evil!!!! Thanks for the laugh!

Tanya - another theme could be 'song' ... "Chestnuts roasting over an open fire" - and I collect owl things!!!!!! Lovely:)

Kay - great peanuts - also nice roasted!:lol:

gement - yes, nice painting and a good drawing from you! - lot of work in that!

Ron - that's a much more civilised interpretation!:lol:

10-04-2018, 08:04 AM
This is my first post here and I haven't been active on WC for a long time, So hello everybody. :wave:
I thought Inktober might be a good chance to keep me working harder.
Looking at your amazing works makes me feel a bit hesitant about posting my own attempts here, but well, let's do it [stop typing dude, post those pictures]


I don't usually do finished pieces, as I have loads of problems with patience. I mostly do quick sketches, but I need to start doing more serious and more time consuming things, because I don't see much improvement. If there is place for it in this thread, some C&C would be most welcome, as brutal as it may be.

10-04-2018, 08:36 AM
Logan, Kay, gement, Ron - wonderful work, keep it coming! Weles, welcome, no need to be hesitant as your pieces are beautiful.

I look forward to seeing more good stuff from everyone.

10-04-2018, 10:05 AM
These are all so great! I love seeing what everyone has come up with.

This is my first Inktober, and I'm having a lot of fun so far. We'll see if I still feel that way at the end! Anyway, here are my first 3 days...

Day 1: Poisonous

Day 2: Tranquil

Day 3: Roasted (this is a scene from The Office where Michael roasts his employees, with hilarious results).


10-04-2018, 10:24 AM
#3 roasted (from a photo I took of a pig on a spit in Cuba)


#4 SPELL just a cartoony thing


10-04-2018, 10:32 AM
Here's No. 4 ....


I thought I would give my little-used Pentel brush pen an outing. I hope this in the Inktober rules - its a brush but does use ink. :)

S&B Alpha sketchbook 5.5 x 8.5 ins, Pentel GFKP, good old Uni-Pins 0.8 and 0.4

On to No. 5 - Chicken

Charlie's Mum
10-04-2018, 11:58 AM
Weles - definitely don't need to hang back!
Your drawings are as good as anyone's and you and they are welcome!

Some really good mark-making here - I like the variation particularly in the toadstool - then in #2 - then al those little organiased scribbles in #3 and the nicely observed and presented book.
Just keep going!

As a separate thing - why not join our monthly P&I challenge and draw things from life - studying and observing are excellent for developing patience and concentration!:)

10-04-2018, 12:03 PM
WOW- these are awesome. Really enjoying seeing everybody's drawings.

For some reason I thought it was "Precious" day but I'm posting my drawing anyway.

Charlie's Mum
10-04-2018, 12:04 PM
Amy - welcome here!
I love the mushrooms/toadstools! - I like the other two as well - very precise drawing!

Bonnie - I always feel sorry for the hog being roasted!:lol: ..... and levitating a pumpkin? - magic!:lol:

Ron - a witch in heels! Yes!!! The tree looks terrifying!:)

10-04-2018, 12:10 PM
I've been doing portraits this year.
Day 1
Day 2
Day 3
Day 4

10-04-2018, 12:12 PM
The peanuts were sketched from life, Tanya :cat: as it is great practice!
BBL to comment more.

Here is mine for the prompt 'Spell'. The woman's eye is casting a spell onto whomever glances her way :eek: 5x7 book text using black Tombow brush pen + a little water to blend.


10-04-2018, 12:31 PM
Love all these new ones today! Great stuff.

Here's my Day 4 - Spell (I'm sure many out there will do a scrabble board image):


10-04-2018, 02:06 PM
Michael and Maureen, thank you so much for such kind words.
I drew this "spellbook" from imagination, so what you said about it Maureen is especially encouraging.
I will definitely post more :)

I was already looking into the monthly challenge thread and I might have a couple ideas.

Most of all, it's great and really inspiring to see you all post your works here, as they are amazing.
I must say I didn't think Inktober would be so addictive, can't wait till tomorrow.

Charlie's Mum
10-04-2018, 03:14 PM
It's really good to see so many responses! More since I posted earlier today:)
Tom - sorry I missed the evil collector of gems!

Kay - casting an evil eye on proceedings?

Arttorney - good to see your drawings again - I especially like the last one, but they're all good - and slightly evil?:lol:

Michael - glad to see someone else thought of an alternative interpretation - I was wondering why that onr hadn't been drawn yet - it's good!

10-04-2018, 05:58 PM
I love Inktober because of all the varying styles and interpretations.

@Maureen- Thank you. I'm glad to be back. Most of the life drawing models where I go have been very nice to me. I probably just draw evilly. My Drawing 1 professor took one look at a self portrait I did and started talking excitedly about "intensity" and Lucien Freud. The same drawing was later rejected from the student show for being "too sad."

10-04-2018, 11:39 PM
Michael, I really do admire your Scrabble board illustration, just great!

Mine is now cropped and looks better so here it is again. Tomorrow's prompt is 'Chicken'.


10-05-2018, 01:46 AM

The Aqueduct at Segovia.

(It had a cameo in the first episode of the show I am riffing on. The next traditional art in my list is, um, large, and I was tired. I struggle with realism and with natural color, so spent much of the time on this one feeling sullen but accomplished for making the effort on a day that I really, really wasn't feeling it.)

I was hesitating on posting today's as it is ink and wash and the ink isn't hugely obvious; I am trying to be respectful about touristing the Pen & Ink forum. But the ink was the vast majority of my time, about 5:1, and I see some other colorful folks popping up.

veryone's stuff is looking so great! I would leave more specific comments, but spending several hours a day on stressing over representational art has been seriously cutting into my forum time. Maybe tomorrow.

10-05-2018, 03:06 AM
Hi everyone! I haven't been around on WC for a while (been very inactive with my art) - but I heard about Inktober on Instagram, and have been taking part. Figured it was just the kick up the bum I needed to get me drawing / painting again! :thumbsup:

I logged into WC today to browse the image library for a reference for today's theme, I should have known there'd be a forum thread here on Inktober! Very happy to find it, and to see all your works. Thought I'd share mine so far. I've been using the official prompts, and copic inks as my medium.





10-05-2018, 07:22 AM
Great drawings everybody. It's really motivational when so many are participating.

Remember the old riddle? ........


A. To get to the recording studio.:lol:

10-05-2018, 08:28 AM
There so many good contributions here, my head is spinning! Please keep them coming! And thanks for the kind words on mine.

Ron, this last one gave me a good chuckle.

10-05-2018, 08:37 AM
I thought I would go for food today:

Charlie's Mum
10-05-2018, 10:38 AM
Lol - thanks for the giggle ron!

Weles - this 'chicken' too made me smile!

Jess - welcome back ...... I'm not sure whether the original Inktober meant/means a majority of pen work - *shrug* but I'm assuming markers here for all of them? Nice works - and a selfie for poisonous?:lol::lol:

gement - don't stress about the wash - it's usually quicker than penwork, just looks more cos it covers large areas! Quite testing doing all this building work! Good though!:)

10-05-2018, 11:48 AM

10-05-2018, 12:27 PM
Excellent work Weles and arttorney.

Oh, and I'm pretty sure markers are allowed. I used gray markers on everything I've done so far.

Here's my day 5 - Chicken


10-05-2018, 12:35 PM
This is the best chicken I ever drew.

10-05-2018, 01:37 PM
Ha! Chicken Road made me actually laugh.

I love the dot shading on the comb of this chicken, Tom.

As far as what's allowed, the power of requiring "ink" for me is that what's done is done (no take-backs) and it's not easy to adjust line weight or darkness unless you get pretty advanced. Ink means I have to make lines boldly and unapologetically.

As my mom said when I hooked her into it this month, "It's drawing practice, not erasing practice." So anything that meets that goal is ink enough for me.

10-05-2018, 02:23 PM
Inktober is such a fun idea. I love seeing all the creative drawings.

Ink + chicken + October = little Witch Chick! :lol:

This is about 3 x 4 inches and I drew lightly with pencil before adding the ink.


10-05-2018, 05:29 PM
Great works gement, Jess, Ron, Weles, arttorney, eeglug, and monarch!

Here is my chicken 6x9 using black India ink on Canson paper:

http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/05-Oct-2018/2083013-Inktober_Armada_except_not.jpg http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/05-Oct-2018/2083013-InktoberGaleo769;n-San-Marti769;n-de-Medina-Sidonia-armada-invencible-458x584.gif

Okay, now we're getting somewhere. This is the first time I was so fed up with taking so long that when I couldn't find my ruler, I didn't take the time to fake something with a paper edge, I just went and started wildly sketching with no grid dots, in the confident knowledge that all the proportions would be a MESS. (I'd only been using a handful of dots per image, but boy, had they made a difference.) I knew if I did this long enough I would get fed up and loosen up, and it has arrived on day 5, which is earlier than I had hoped.

Finally, a sketch that's actually a sketch.


La Grande y Felicísima Armada (“the great and most fortunate navy”), known sarcastically by the English as the Invincible Armada and by boring people as the Spanish Armada, was one of the worst strategic disasters in naval history. The English sank many, many Spanish ships.

Frustratingly, I could not find any interesting portraits of a specific Armada ship (I even searched for individual flagships) that weren’t smugly done by English or Dutch artists and also on fire. I was not down for drawing the whole fleet, the usual subject of “Before” pictures.

So here's a Spanish galley I chose because it has the best sails. Google cannot identify its source. I would be extremely interested and grateful if anyone can find me an attribution, and possibly also an actual portrait of the Saō Martinho or any other interesting ship from the Armada while not on fire. Is there a forum for that?

10-06-2018, 12:26 AM
Monarch, that's one cute chick!

Kay, I love the expressiveness of your piece!

gement, nice looseness and presence to your sketch!

Charlie's Mum
10-06-2018, 06:33 AM
gement - it's all about 'looking' - so you see how successful you are when you stop agonising and just look and draw?

I think Google, at present, is the 'forum' to search - no specific place here in WC.:)

Michael - stuffed chicken?:lol:

Great drawings everyone - lovely to see the enthusiasm - and returnees Monarch! Cute chick!!

10-06-2018, 12:25 PM
Today's drooling was supposed to be great for me , cause I thought of a classic Polish desert "Wuzetka". It turned out however that after a whole week of work I was too tired to stay focused and I kept rushing instead.


Looking at it I'm thinking if scribbling would be a better choice to show a chocolate sponge texture more accurately, but I went for less time consuming cross-hatching.
The second point is the whipped cream on top (or rather what was supposed to be a lovely whipped cream blob), which well, it wasn't a success.

Anyway, I'm looking forward to seeing some more of your works. I don't feel entitled to comment on them, but they are all beautifull :)

10-06-2018, 02:51 PM
Weles - love the textures in the cake.
Kay - love the loose approach - something I keep trying to do.
Monarch - great idea consolidating prompts, very cute chick.
Michael - love the story, your pictures always leave us wondering...

gement - I like the free-er sketching style

Here's mine for day 6 (not drawn from life - thank goodness) .......


10-06-2018, 03:56 PM
gement, love your ship!
Weles, love your delicious looking dessert!
Ron, you had the same idea as I did. Love the dog with his face down in it!

Here's my bulldog with a long strand/string of spittle drool from his wide mouth, too fun: 5.5x8.5 sketchbook using Micron 01 pen.


10-06-2018, 06:45 PM

10-06-2018, 07:17 PM
Weles, that looks and sounds yummy

Ron & Kay - how can you not think of a canine when you have drooling as a prompt!

arttorney - A very thoughtful rendering

OK here's my Day 6 Drooling:


10-06-2018, 07:25 PM
Good one, arttorney!
Michael, I really like your sense of humor!

I like this one of all the faces, Ted!

10-06-2018, 10:20 PM
Monarch, the witch chick is so delicate!
Kay, your splatter chicken in impressively exuberant.
KreativeK and rosta, those are some great dogs.
Eeglug, that is not a sanitary commercial food handling practice!
GarageDoor, I like the layers of overlap in how you packed the faces together.


Lope de Vega is the Spanish cultural equivalent of Shakespeare, except if Shakespeare wrote like a demon and had a scandalous love life.

We still have copies of 3000 sonnets and almost 500 plays. He may have written up to 1500 plays in his lifetime, and freely admitted that probably a hundred of those had been written in 24 hours each. After joining the army twice and outliving several wives, he eventually became a priest but this did not stop his notorious habit of romantic affairs.

Fortunately for the lazy sketch artist, his most famous portrait is in black on black with black. For the record, I am gritting my teeth REAL HARD about putting up work I outlined in as few fast continuous lines as possible. I know it's how to improve. All hail Inktober and putting our practice in public.

10-06-2018, 10:32 PM
GarageDoor - love all those heads

gement - I continue to admire your choice of subject matter...your pieces are like a portal to another time.

10-07-2018, 01:46 AM
Day 6 for Drooling. It looks like a lot of us thought of dogs! :lol:

This sketch was done with an ordinary writing pen which I had bought in a bulk package from Costco. I decided to see if it was watersoluble, which it partly is. It would be fun to try more drawings with it, although it probably isn't lightfast.


10-07-2018, 03:13 AM
This seems to be a fun way to improve my quick sketching skills. I plan to do at least 31 pen and ink sketches for Inktober 2018, but I will not be posting them one per day. Also, I plan to limit them to sketches made in less than 20 minutes each. 🙂

This is the first of my sketches:
Inauguration, which in India is traditionally done by lighting a ceremonial lamp.

10-07-2018, 08:14 AM
Lol - I can't keep up with this thread!
The latest additions are all so good and so different - but why does Monarch's dog look like mine used to when eyeing something delicious?:lol:

Blah - good to have you join this thread - love your drawings!

10-07-2018, 09:43 AM
Thank you Maureen.

This is my second Inktober 2018 sketch. On my way to work on Friday morning I was held up at a particularly slow traffic light. While waiting I was daydreaming, when my thoughts turned to #inktober #inktober2018 and what I could sketch today. I suddenly realised that there was an interesting subject right in front of me. I quickly whipped out a small sketch pad which I keep in my car and made a 2 or 3 minute line sketch of the subject ahead of me, well in time to not hold up any traffic when the light turned green. I added the hatching later. It was only after I had scanned and posted it elsewhere that I realised that this being a three wheeler, I should have observed and drawn a wheel in the centre too.

Every day is a lesson, I only hope I will learn something in the end.

Great drawings everybody! They are all so individual in style.

Here's my Number 7 - Exhausted.


The setting might seem a little familiar :)

10-07-2018, 12:02 PM
Some beautiful drawings here - great work monarch, Ron, Balaji & Weles!

Here is my Day 7 Exhausted:


10-07-2018, 02:18 PM
Thank you Maureen and Michael.
Lovely sketches Weles, Ron, and Michael with wonderful interpretations of the subject.

Here is my 3rd sketch for Inktober 2018


I cannot see the point in placing decorations on top of a lectern. More to the point, one can sometimes not see the speaker due to the abundance of such decorations. I spent hours yesterday listening to a number of speakers and watching their shadows. At one point, there was a peculiar situation where during a question answer session the questioner went into lecture mode, and the speaker answered in very short sentences. Since I could see neither and the sounds were coming from the same audio system in both instances, after some time I did not know who was asking the question and who was answering.

Day 7 - Exhausted

After I started working on this, I realized I should have drawn this baby's parents as the exhausted ones...:lol:

And then, since I sacrificed sleep to draw this, I could also have drawn a self-portrait of how I am feeling today! :wink2:

The gray and white "smudginess" you can see mostly in the top corners is from holding the spiral sketchbook to the scanner.

Maureen, thank you for hosting this. It's fun and I'd love to try to participate every day, although I am often too "exhausted" when I get home at the end of the day to do much.

Michael, I'm enjoying your sense of humor and creativity, and it fits in well with October since it's sometimes a little creepy, too!

Tom, nice work, your spider really freaked me out (I'm not a fan of them:eek: ) so I was really pleased to see your happy chicken...please send it to go and eat your spider.

Kay, I always enjoy all of your work, and your lily pads really show tranquility perfectly.

Indraneel, I really like your loose and expressive style.

Gement, great drawings and a mini history lesson with each, I am loving it.

Bonnie, your art tells a great story each time!

Logan, I like them all but especially your owl toasting s'mores...please tell it to make one for me! Yum.

Ron, nice work on all, and my fave is definitely Chicken Road!

Weles, it looks to me like you're doing great with patience, and I'd like some of that delicious-looking Polish dessert.

Amy, I love the brightness and color and cheerfulness!

Arttorney, your portraits are interesting, and the stories that must be behind them intrigue me.

Jess, nice and colorful, and your first piece is especially thought-provoking.

Garage Door, very creative, and the more I look, the more I see.

Balanji, I'm looking forward to seeing all 31 of your works, and I enjoy how they give little glimpses of life in your culture.

The Abbey of Santa Maria de Montserrat.

The monastery at Montserrat, in addition to housing around 80 monks for the last 900 years, is a symbol of Catalonian cultural identity and a popular hiking pilgrimage site.

It has been a refuge for radicals, scholars, and artists under Franco. Himmler famously paid a visit there in 1940, reportedly to look for the Holy Grail. If it wasn't for that reason, it's an interesting choice given that the Virgin of Montserrat, a statue of the Virgin Mary that is their biggest claim to fame, is a Black Madonna with a black infant Jesus. His visit was... not popular, and the abbot managed to make an excuse not to meet him.

Everyone's works so far are just amazing and fun :thumbsup:

Here is today's Exhausted, a cat who gave it up for a long, long nap :cat:
8.5x5.5, Micron 01 pen on Masters sketchbook. Then a follow up with watercolor added:



10-07-2018, 09:18 PM
Balaji, that's a funny idea. I'm not sure I've seen as many lecterns bedecked that way over here but I can see how the decor could obscure the speaker.

Beautiful piece arttorney.

monarch, that's a really sweet image.

gement, I love free flowing nature of your sketches - such a cool balance of looseness and detail/dimension.

Kemical reaxion, I'm digging the humor - that chicken dressed as a fancy dude is hilarious!

Kay, love that piece. I really like how it looks with watercolor.

10-08-2018, 09:57 AM
Well I am very late to this thread, I've been posting mine on Facebook and so far I've done every day!

A few comments (sorry if I missed anyone):

Artastic – Very cool poisonous flower and your Tranquil one really gets the feeling.
LoganArt – I just love your little camping owl 😊
JessKerr – I really like your Poisonous one, it really speaks to me.
Tom3775 – Great chicken, I love it!
Weles – That dessert looks so good!
Rosta – That’s quite a drooler! Well done.
Kay – Such a cute exhausted cat 😊 And we pretty much had the same idea for drooling!
Arttorney – Beautiful. I really like the one for the 6th.
Gement – Very nice scenes.
Eeglug – Yours are so funny! I love the guy eating the chicken and awesome exhausted guy, so funny! :D
monarch - Such a sweet dog and a sweet kid!
Kemical Reaxion – Lol! I love your chicken!

And here are mine so far. I've decided to follow the prompt words while also putting at least an animal in each drawing. The drawings are done in a Stratmore 400 Drawing pad 4x6 inches (because it seems less daunting in a small format :P ) with Pitt Brush pen, Pentel Finito pen and/or Staedtler Pigment Liners of various width.


10-08-2018, 10:49 AM

10-08-2018, 11:06 AM
Sorry not to comment individualy again - but I love the humour coming through a lot of these, andin some cases, the seriousness of places and situations!
Great interpretations of the prompts too!

Thank you all for supporting the thread and giving me frequent giggles!:lol:

Snapv - love the animals, especially the parrot.

Here's no. 8 Star....


10-08-2018, 01:12 PM
This thread is really active...

Michael, Monarch...Thank you.

Arttorney, Monarch, Gement, Kemical, and Kay...Very nice line sketches. The colour in Kemical's and Kay's sketches add a new dimension to them.
Virginie...I like every one of your sketches very much, but I like the camel the most.
Weles, Bonnie, and Ron...Very apt and good sketches for the given prompts.

My 4th sketch is a quick version of the Windows 10 wallpaper that came on when I booted up my computer. (Obviously I am not following the prompt list.)


10-08-2018, 02:03 PM
This is the 5th of my Inktober 2018 sketches. This is the Qutb Complex (also spelt as Qutub and Qutab) with left to right Alai Darwaza, Qutb Minar, and Imam Zamin's tomb.


10-08-2018, 03:47 PM
Tough keeping up with everyone's productivity - wow, great stuff.

I had a hard time with today's prompt; there were a couple of aborted ideas before I settled on this for Day 8 Star:


10-08-2018, 04:11 PM
Thanks to all the commenters. I will reciprocate when I get caught up on my work stuff.

10-08-2018, 04:12 PM
Kemical Reaxion, I would recognize Chicken Boo anywhere, even if he wears a disguise to look like human guys!

Kay, my brain briefly shut down at how well you expressed a cat mid-stretch. Really, really great.

Everyone else, keep it up! Watching this thread is great.


Scene from the Inquisition, by Goya

Instead of focusing on the usual lurid bits, Goya painted the heavily documented trial process, where everyone stood around and acted like this was okay and a good basis for law.

The one particularly interesting thing I learned about the Spanish Inquisition this year is that the accused had to wear incredibly tall hats and smocks showing scenes of Hell just to make sure everyone knew how much trouble they were in.


10-08-2018, 04:25 PM
Great ones since I posted earlier! Love the Christmas tree one 😁

Here's my day 8!

10-08-2018, 08:11 PM
For today's prompt 'Star', here is another of my friend's kitty named Star, for the gray marking on her head, otherwise solid white fur. Tombow brush pen w/ India ink on Bristol board.


I'm so enjoying all your works, and glad Virginie that you can join in...love yours you've posted :clap:

10-08-2018, 10:44 PM
Thanks for the kind comments that have been made. There have already been so many great entries since I last posted!

This starfish was done with black and gray markers. My focus was on being bold and not doing ANY pencil drawing first. :eek: :lol:


10-09-2018, 11:51 AM
10/09/2018 I have the head cold my boss brought back from China. It makes it hard to get motivated.

Blah- great job on the stop light drawing
Eeglug- Your "Exhausted" drawing is funny
Monarch- your exhausted drawing is cute
Gement- I love the scribbly style in the Montserrat drawing
Kemical Reaxion- Awesome chicken
SnapV- I like the way you made the parrot's neck feathers and the leaves in poisonous
weles- That was a very orderly star. It shows a lot of control.
Rosta- I like the concept of your star
KreativK- I like the pose and composition of your exhausted kitty.

10-09-2018, 01:00 PM
Thanks all for the kind words! It's tough keeping up with all the cool entries to this thread. I love them all.

Here's my Day 9, Precious:


10-09-2018, 04:25 PM
I'm starting to feel the pace of inktober. For the first time I wondered if there is point in continuing if I struggle to figure out something I'm able to draw AND fits a particular prompt at the same time. On the other hand it could just be temporary and maybe just some of the prompts suit me less.
It's still interesting to see when I loose patience and how/if I can push through such days.
Well, today was such a day. I was just a small step from giving up as a couple of tries were a disaster. Loads of work and completely no idea that would be possible for me to accomplish. This is what I managed:


10-09-2018, 04:41 PM
Thanks, Maureen! You all are doing amazing drawings! I really enjoyed looking at them all! :clap: :clap:

I'm doing Oklahoma Food for my #Inktober theme. Here is what I have so far.





10-09-2018, 05:13 PM
I'm starting to feel the pace of inktober. For the first time I wondered if there is point in continuing if I struggle to figure out something I'm able to draw AND fits a particular prompt at the same time.

Weles, the way I dealt with this was to generate all of my ideas ahead of time. For every prompt, I have a little pencil sketch - all 31 days. Some I did more than one because I was unhappy with my first idea. I did this back in September. The actual ink drawing is done on the day itself but the idea was in place for a while. Occasionally I am doing last minute ideas like the Christmas tree/star I did yesterday - because I didn't like my initial takes on that prompt.

Anyway that's how I am approaching it.

10-09-2018, 05:13 PM
Beth I'm salivating over that food!

10-09-2018, 05:15 PM
I need to warn everyone that my entry for tomorrow is somewhat NSFW. Do I have to do anything special about that? There's no nudity but it's a little on the edge - maybe I shouldn't post it here(?).

10-09-2018, 06:42 PM

The Columbus Monument (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbus_Monument,_Barcelona) in Barcelona is 60m tall, most of which is one massive narrow vertical column. Cristobal Colón is up there at the top somewhere, pointing majestically toward “the New World.” The rest of the fluffery around the bottom is various angels, griffons, dignitaries, and symbolic something or others. I have identified the figures in front as “Captain Pedro Bertran i de Margarit, next to a kneeling Native American.”


A belated Indigenous People’s Day to you, too.


On a lighter note,

Weles, you're sticking with it! Yes! You may have noticed the rate of posting is going down... Getting *something* in and making a habit of picking up a pen is the point.

Blah, your work is amazing.

I'm curious about the NSFW line, too. I have a couple classical nudes coming up in my list.

Outright pornography is not welcome on WC. but "a little on the edge" sounds well within the bounds. :)

I was a bit surprised to come here on WC and see that Weles beat me to the diamond idea! :lol: I guess that just goes to show that great minds think alike. :thumbsup: Nice work on your diamond, Weles.

I started out drawing freehand, but then ended up getting a ruler and straightening out the lines. Hatching was freehand, as you can tell, although maybe I should have been a bit more precise. :rolleyes:

Why oh why are we all so self-critical? This is a terrific rendering of a diamond. The hatching depicts the various planes so well... and if it isn’t precise, no one’s noticing.

10-10-2018, 09:02 AM
Great work all!

Monarch - looks like a great diamond to me.
Kay - love the bird
Yummy looking food Beth
Weles - like you, I'm feeling the pressure of Inktober. Mainly its finding the time to sit down and draw
gement - I'm enjoying the drawings and the bonus history lessons.
Michael - loved the image, always a good storyline in your drawings
arttorney - sorry about the cold - Keep drawing though, it will take your mind off it.

Monarch, we had the same idea basically, but you executed it sooo much better. Love the rendering.
As far as my attempt above, I did everything from memory.
The top of the glass is inconsistent with the way the whole thing lies on the table, but I noticed the problem only after posting it on WC.

I'm really loving the creative interpretations of the prompts. I think I'm having more fun seeing everyone else's work than I am drawing my own!

gement: :lol: Yay, glad someone recognized him! I loved the Chicken Boo shorts on Animaniacs. They were the same plot every time, but they still never failed to make me laugh. Chickens wearing people clothes are always funny.

Signchick: Your food is making me hungry. I'm originally from Oklahoma (born and raised in Enid but haven't lived there in over 10 years), so I'm loving seeing the various foods from my home state. Cattlemen's is one of the best steaks I've ever had.

Guernica, Pablo Picasso

Painted in 1937 in response to the bombing of the Spanish village of Guernica (by German and Italian planes at the request of Franco), this massive mural was painted entirely in black and white to evoke newspaper photographs.

It was instantly popular as a rallying point for anti-war and anti-fascist activism, and raised a lot of money for Spanish Civil War humanitarian aid.

(I wanted to paint it in all reds but it turns out that drawing from Cubism is advanced mode and my brain is still tired two hours later. I didn't even have the wherewithal to shade in ink. I'm pretty pleased, though.)

10-10-2018, 04:18 PM

Weles, a beautiful gem and an interesting broken glass on wood. Nice economic lines
gement: always interesting subjects, well done - the Picasso is cool
Kay: love your pieces over old text, they're beautiful
monarch: a stunning gem!
Ron: love that crow/raven
Bonnie: love your pieces
arttorney: enjoying your portraits, tough to do in ink

10-10-2018, 05:32 PM
Here's my Day 10, which some might find offensive. I don't mind if someone feels it should be removed, although it was a lot of work to do. Technically you don't actually 'see' anything.


10-10-2018, 05:51 PM
gement - Wow! I wouldn't even think about tackling Guernica, or any Picasso come to that.
arttorney - as Michael said portraits are very difficult in pen - nice job.
Michael - as ever, very funny. BTW I'm not offended :thumbsup:

Here's my day 10 effort - Flowing. Its a bit prosaic after Michael's...

Day 10, Flowing

Did a pencil underdrawing and then inked over it. I tried to erase the pencil marks too soon......ink was still wet...oops! Some smearing happened. Cleaned up most of it with a sand eraser, and if I had more time I could probably get the rest. The eraser roughed up the paper only a little bit, with no tears, and this is just cheap sketch paper. Eraser is well worth the couple of dollars I spent on it. :thumbsup:


10-11-2018, 12:41 PM
Did somebody mention that the posts in this thread are slowing down? That is not the impression that I get. Not only are they coming thick and fast, they are also so very nicely done and interesting too.

Michael, Virginie, Kay, Monarch, Weles, Beth, Ron, Bonnie, and Kemical...I very much admire your interpretations of the various prompts.

Arttorney, Gement. and LoganArt...Your choice of subjects is lovely as is the skill with which you have drawn them.

Also, thank you Arttorney and Gement for commenting on my posts.

This is the 6th of my Inktober 2018 sketches. I know that I am behind but I do hope to post 31 of them this month.

This one is a quick sketch of an inset stone sculpture in a panel in the Kailasanathar Temple at Kancheepuram, a town close to Chennai that is famous for its innumerous temples and silk sarees. This figure is supposed to have eight arms, but several have been vandalised. However you can still see some of the leftover hands.


10-11-2018, 02:28 PM

10-11-2018, 08:26 PM
Everyone's work is amazing. It's such a pleasure to look at it all.



Lazarillo de Tormes is a 1554 Spanish novella that started the literary genre of the “picaresque,” stories about rogues and commoners critiquing societal corruption. Tom Sawyer and Oliver Twist are in the same tradition. The Canterbury Tales also share some common features, such as most characters being named only by role: “The Blind Man,” “The Friar.”

The book was published anonymously in three cities at once to avoid identifying the author. Due to criticisms of church corruption, an unabridged edition wasn’t legally published in Spain until the 19th century.

Okay, this one was kind of ridiculous to do. I do not recommend trying to reproduce 16th C calligraphy with a rollerball pen. (And I broke my rule on pencil and straight-edge exactly long enough to make guides for the text.) I'm extremely pleased with the outcome, though.

The entries keep coming in, and viewing each person's work has been such delightful eye candy! :clap:

Here's mine for Day 11, Cruel (as in cold winter.)

I did it on cheap sketchbook paper and then as an afterthought, added some watercolor to it. The paper buckled up and won't straighten, so there are funny
grayish marks that showed up when I scanned the warped paper. It's most obvious in the top half of the painting, especially in the sky.


10-12-2018, 06:07 AM

Weles, Virginie, Arttorney, Kay, Gement, Bonnie, and Monarch (the ones who posted after my last post)...wonderful posts; its a pleasure to view them.

Here are two of my sketches for Inktober 2018.

At work I usually read some book or the other while having my lunch. The other day as I finished the book that I was reading I noticed a photograph of the author on the wrapper. Since I had another 20 minutes to go on my lunch break that became the subject of the day's sketch.

The next day was a new day, a new book, and a new author.

The seriousness and futility of war with Guernica - recognised it immediately gement, ........ and the cultural information (so welcome, thank you Blah!) .. to the evil of that cat Kay ....... and then the beautiful delicacy of some works and the creative whimsy of others........ and all the stately portraits!

Maureen...Thank you for the comment. :)

Kay, Michael, Arttorney, Kemical, and Van Andrew...Lovely posts. I enjoy viewing each and every one of them.

This is my 9th Inktober 2018 post. It is a quick sketch of Moore Market, a much loved landmark building in Chennai that we have now lost. It was built in the late 1890s and made available for use in 1900. Extremely popular, it was the common Madras (Chennai) citizen's supermaket/mall for some 75 to 80 years. But around 1980 the Southern Railways wanted the land on which this building stood. The citizens protested and wanted to retain the building. But in 1985 the building "caught fire" and the Southern Railways replaced it with a tasteless multi-storeyed building.

Since then many heritage buildings in Chennai have conveniently caught fire whenever there had been a pressure on the land on which they stood.

I love that everybody's sharing their inktober stuff; such a variety of ideas and creativity :) had a lot of fun scrolling through. Great work from everyone. (I don't think I'll post mine as they've all been walking-dead themed this year and might not make sense if you don't watch the show ;) ) but nonetheless, I've enjoyed seeing everyone's stuff! Thanks for sharing

Day #14 'Clock' about to strike midnight on Halloween


10-14-2018, 04:01 PM
Beautiful, beautiful stuff. I love all the whales and every clock and both Cruellas.

Blah, funny how fires will just start that way. :(

Potatocakes, people don't seem to be complaining about my bizarre choices of subject. Post away!

Dang, if I'd realized Clock was coming up on the official prompts, I might have done a cut from The Persistence of Memory after all.

Long post starts now, I didn't post for three days for reasons you will soon see...


Residencia de Estudiantes tryptych (Inktober #12, #13, #14)

A trio of the three most notable members of “Residencia de Estudiantes” (the students’ residence, an art community incubator at the University of Madrid) class of ‘27.

Self-portrait of Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí, the most prominent artist of the Surrealist movement, was a very, very weird duck. He lived to age 84 and was prolific for most of that time. While he is known as a surrealist, the actual group that called themselves Surrealists eventually kicked him out for refusing to publicly denounce fascism and Hitler; he insisted the art could exist in an apolitical space.

Here are two attempts at copying his self portrait. The second is more technically accurate but also looks more like Vincent Price. The first captures Dalí’s wild look at the camera better.

Bonus reference: He credited his mustache style to an imitation of Velázquez.

Poster for Un Chien Andalou by Luis Buñuel and Salvador Dalí

Luis Buñuel was a transgressive filmmaker who worked in a wide variety of countries and genres. By the end of his prolific career (he lived to 83 and stayed active), he had made critically acclaimed films that were banned or closed due to outrage about the national issues they criticized in Mexico (poverty), the United States (racism and sexual assault), and Spain (Catholic abuses).

He had a lifelong habit of storming out of institutions, such as his private high school, the Catholic Church, his Spanish citizenship, his friendship with Salvador Dalí, and major film studios. Despite this, he only married once, for life, and it seemed to be a happy marriage.

His first experimental film with Dalí, “Un Chien Andalou” (An Andalusian Dog), was a collection of disconnected upsetting imagery with no plot. It was wildly popular, Roger Ebert once called it “the most famous short film ever made,” and, well, I will just quote Wikipedia here:

Against his hopes and expectations, the film was a huge success amongst the French bourgeoisie, leading Buñuel to exclaim in exasperation, “What can I do about the people who adore all that is new, even when it goes against their deepest convictions, or about the insincere, corrupt press, and the inane herd that saw beauty or poetry in something which was basically no more than a desperate impassioned call for murder?”


Staging of “The Butterfly’s Evil Spell” by Federico García Lorca

Federico García Lorca was a poet, playwright, and stage director who wrote on themes of Spanish folklore, class conflict, and sexual identity. After an extended trip to the United States, he focused less on folklore and more on the power of theater as social activism.

He was part of “the class of '27” with Dalí and Buñuel. He had a mutually passionate friendship with Dalí, but sadly for him, he was gay and Dalí wasn’t. He fell out with the two of them after they went and made Un Chien Andalou without him and both started serious romantic relationships with women.

His first play in 1920, “The Butterfly’s Evil Spell,” flopped after four performances. He would usually claim that his popular 1927 “Mariana Pineda,” with set pieces by Dalí, was his first play instead. I can’t find any photos of people performing that anymore, though, while theater tech departments still seem to delight in dressing up their stage with giant flowers and people dressed as insects.

As a homosexual and a loud socialist, García Lorca was not popular with the government in the rise of Nationalism. After his brother-in-law took a mayorship that had been standing empty for over a year, he, the brother-in-law, and two other family members disappeared forever. He is universally agreed to have been assassinated by Nationalist militia. His body has never been found. He was 38.

This thread continues to be a feast for the eyes - thanks everybody for all the cool work, keep it coming please!

Here's my Day 14 Clock:

10-15-2018, 07:34 AM
Thanks Charlie's Mum & Gement; you've inspired me to share. (Even if people watch the walking dead they still might not make sense anyway, so who cares ;D )

These are days 1-16 (16 is unfinished, started working on it early because I'll be rushed tomorrow!)

Have to say, even though I'm not always happy with every single one or have as much time to invest as I'd like, its been really good to have that push to produce something every day. I hope I can maintain a more consistent art-habit after October ends. :heart:

(Also its forcing me to use my inks that have been sitting in the cupboard for YEARS! :lol: )


10-15-2018, 08:50 AM
Potatocake...Welcome. Your pen and ink skills are admirable.

Weles, Arttorney, Kay, Gement, Michael, and Ievapalle...I look forward to your posts and enjoy viewing them.

Gement...I very much appreciate the commentary accompanying your sketches.

Here's my sketch #11 for Inktober 2018 from"A Star Is Born".


10-15-2018, 08:58 AM
Sorry I haven't time to comment individually but the standard of everybody's artwork is amazing.

I'm struggling to do a drawing a day, so in an effort to keep up I've had to go a bit minimalist in style. Here's day 14 Clock....


10-15-2018, 09:53 AM
ievapalle: that's a cool, haunting clock!
Potatocake: that's an outpouring of some intense inkwork!
Balaji: nice rendering, I need to see that movie.
Ron: that's a really sweet image!

10-15-2018, 10:19 AM
Welcome Potatocake! I like all of yours. Anything goes.
I'm enjoying your figures, arttorney and your clocks Weles, Michael and Ron! gement, your Dali portrait is phenomenal as are your others posted. Levapalle, wow, this one is genius! Balaji, this is very, very nice!

Well done, everybody!

(Thanks for everyone's nice comments & welcomes :) gave me a little boost today :heart: )

Think I'll have to keep coming back to peek at this thread, seeing some really nice work.
SnapV: Those orcas! =o wow.
Arttorney: Really like how much texture you've managed to capture in yours.
Rosta: Your clock & bird make me feel nostalgic, they're cute as!
Blah: Love your style, I struggle to draw full-bodies without them looking awkward/stiff, yours look very natural.

Love your amazing humor, Virginie, just fabulous :clap:
Weles, I've a few favorite brushes look just like this one, :lol: love it!
eeglug, your man holding a barely dripping hose is too fun, fantastic work:thumbsup:

For 'Weak' I chose to sketch this newborn baby foal with STA Lictin 0.2 pen, then apply watercolor on Fluid 140 lb cold press paper today for day #15:

There are some great Inktober designs here! I've enjoyed looking at everone's works.

I have not done a sketch every day, but I have played around a little as I could. Here are two of mine, done with pigma microns and white gel pen on gray toned sketch paper.



10-16-2018, 05:23 AM
Agart - lovely work.
Kemical - nice linework.
Kay - love the foal, beautiful.
Michael - as ever, very funny.
Weles - nice and simple. Some of my brushes look like that after using masking fluid. :lol:
SnapV - love those Orcas.
Arttorney - another very expressive figure.

When Inktober is over I'd like to buy all the surviving contributors a virtual pint......:lol:


10-16-2018, 09:03 AM
Kay: that's a gorgeous foal rendering
Kemical Reaxion: two very different pieces, the weak one is very dramatic
April: beautiful pieces
Ron: nice take on the 'weak' prompt, cool view/perspective

10-16-2018, 10:54 AM
Thanks all!
Kemical, your compositions and executions are superb!
I love your flower and tree scene, April, truly inspirational!
Ron, I'll take you up on your virtual pint offer, and I want strong, not weak ale or beer!

10-16-2018, 01:10 PM
I thought that I was catching up, but I see that wonderful sketches are being posted thick and fast and I am once again several sketches behind. Here is my 12th for Inktober 2018. It is "Manobier Castle" from a reference picture provided by Oldrockchick for a 2013 P&I Monthly Project.


10-16-2018, 01:56 PM

A bit behind schedule, but here's Day 12, Whale.

Great works on this thread, everyone!

Balaji, I especially like your Moore Market piece.
Weles, your "weak" brush is a good interpretation and I like your lines
Virginie, thanks for a good chuckle when I saw your "cruel" of the doggy with treat on his nose!
Arttorney, great figure drawings!
Michael, enjoying your creativity, I always wonder what you'll do next
Kay, the clock piece is really unusual and I could see that hanging on a wall as almost an abstract
Gement, great capture of Dali's wild look
Bonnie, your laughing beluga is so genuinely happy that I had to smile!
Ron, loving your work although I'm hoping the caged monkey escapes
Kemical, love your crossing guard especially!
Van Andrew, not sure who your character is, but he has the perfect Halloween quality about him
Ievapalle, the yellow and black combination really works
Potatocake, I don't know your characters but I really enjoy your art and am glad you're sharing
April, I can almost hear the soft sound snowflakes make as they're falling when I see your tree piece

10-16-2018, 03:47 PM
Thank you for all your comments. They are really motivating.

Ok, I have done something horrible today, I don't even know how to explain it. "I thought it would look better" doesn't seem to be enough. Well here it goes


10-16-2018, 04:21 PM

10-16-2018, 04:44 PM
Balaji - charming piece, some tricky perspective
monarch - love that whale!
Weles - I think many followed this 'angle' on 'angular', including me!
arttorney - I really like this one a lot

Here's my Day 16 Angular. As I was drawing this guy, something about it made me think of woodcuts so I sort of followed that idea for the background.


10-16-2018, 05:44 PM
Michael - I like the change in style, interesting. Nice drawing.
Arttorney - Nice, is it drawn from a life model?
Weles - it looks good, I tried the same idea using angles to draw a face and gave up. I realise now we are made up of a series of curves.:(
Monarch - I love the whale, it has a very expressive face.
Blah - I really envy your loose style. Nice drawing.

Here's my take on Angular. I added Snoopy so that it wouldn't seem too militaristic..


10-16-2018, 07:43 PM
Excellent drawings Rosta, Eeglug, arttorney, Weles, Monarch, Blah, KreativeK, AGArt and anyone I missed since my last scan through. This thread is amazingly active and there's such an impressive amount of creativity!

Here's one from today - I'm not using the prompts, but a ghost town seemed appropriate. :)

Ron, I love your angular sketch, very unique and fun!
Van, your sketch is delightful and inspires all sorts of goblins to come out!

10-17-2018, 06:26 AM
Thanks, Michael.
Kay - love the take on Angular, nice lines.
VanAndrew - wow! That's beautiful.

Here's my take on day 17 Swollen.


10-17-2018, 11:20 AM
Ron, you and I have the same idea for 'Swollen'. Love this one of the rescue. I'm doing the Llano River here in Texas that is flooding badly.

My new Lamy Safari fountain pen came in the mail yesterday! So I sat up late into the night testing it out, lol. :lol: Although I'm not really a fan of the blue ink, I most definitely am a fan of the pen. It's lovely!

For Day 14, here's my clock. First shown just in ink, and then after I had added water plus a little more ink and a teeny bit of white gel pen to cover mistakes. I had meant to have the images sized exactly the same, but my computer seems to randomly give me different options for choosing the size, so it's hard for this non-techy gal to guess what size the image is going to end up! :lol:



More great artwork on this thread to comment on:

Weles, your angular guy is interesting, and I admire your dedication in getting a drawing in every day

Arttorney, love the textures in the hair of the girl and the fringe, and her skin looks soft

Michael, the way you did the woodcut look is very appealing to me. I am wondering what is the blue marble in his hand? It seems it would hold some sort of magical power...?

Ron, really enjoyed the Snoopy you added. The river scene looks intense and I like that you can see the body language of the precariously positioned lady being rescued.

VanAndrew, great rendition of the building!

Kay, your lady's profile is beautiful, and I forgot to mention in my comments yesterday that your newborn foal is just so sweet. :heart:

10-17-2018, 12:31 PM
Ron, love that Swollen!

Monarch, your clock is gorgeous!

Re: my angular woodcut drawing. It's a bit of an obscure meaning. The guy is Mr Angular, with all sharp and jaggedy features. He's holding this little sphere/marble/whatever in disbelief/fascination as he's never encountered a round object before in his angular existence. So that was the intent for that drawing. :)

BTW, my next entry is another somewhat naughty one.

10-17-2018, 01:47 PM
Spanish art history, chivalric literature edition!


#15 El Cid statue in Burgos

El Cid has a similar cultural role in Spain as King Arthur in England, except we have actual years alive, contemporary records, and family trees for this 11th Century nobleman and general, Rodrigo Díaz de Vivar. His many exploits have been highly fictionalized, of course, starting with the 12th Century epic poem, "El Cantar de mio Cid."


#15 Bonus, El Seed from The Tick

I didn't actually know anything about El Cid until recently except that a parent had to explain why they were laughing so hard at a villain on one of my favorite cartoons of all time, The Tick. The villain was a talking sunflower in a matador costume named El Seed (dramatic guitar strum).


#16 Don Quixote, Picasso

After the intense shading on El Cid, I made an effort to just do as many lines as Picasso did here, or for fat lines, individual outlined shapes.

I knew Don Quixote was Important Literature, but until I started watching this show, I had no idea how important in Spain. They never say the whole title, just "the Quixote," and sometimes call Spanish "the language of Cervantes." About every third time disaster, they mention that this could stop the Quixote from being written.


10-17-2018, 03:15 PM
rosta- All the pencils underlying my ink drawings were done from live models since late May. The model for the last drawing has straight black hair, but I experimented with a new texture so the earphone wire would still be discernible.

10-17-2018, 04:09 PM
Thank you all for the comments on my works. Monarch, I thought if I accomplish Inktober maybe I can find some more persistance and learn how to push through days when I don't have much time, and until recently I was convinced on some days I had NO time at all for art. Now I'm learning how wrong I was.

My "angular" was done against my better judgement, as I know very well it's too early for me to attempt faces, especially in ink, where eraser... well... doesn't work.


I must say I really enjoy the learning process, and seeing all your works is a bright light in a long dark tunnel for me.
Keep up the good fight everyone, 2 weeks to go :)

10-17-2018, 06:21 PM
gement, arttorney, Weles - keep up the good work!

Here's my Day 17 Swollen


10-17-2018, 08:55 PM
Love your blue Lamy clock works, monarch, just fabulous! I got one of those pens, too and use Noodler's grey ink in it.

Yours are quite humorous, gement, and I'm enjoying seeing what you come up with every day.

Another great portrait from you arttorney, this woman looks Indian to me.

Weles, your insect bee or wasp is really great! Yes, once doing art daily becomes a habit, you will always find time for it, and feel incomplete without doing some little sketch or so, even if only for 5 minutes :thumbsup:

eeglug, your 'naughty' sketches are perfect!!! :lol: I will be laughing until tomorrow with this one. Too wonderful :eek:

Here's mine of the swollen Llano River in central Texas where bridges and roads are gone now :crying: Micron 01 pen on cheap sketchbook.

Third of May 1808, by Goya

Napoleon occupied Spain from 1808 to 1814. On May 2, 1808 there was a well-organized popular uprising in Madrid. It failed. The next day, hundreds of people arrested as combatants were executed.

Goya approached the Spanish government as soon as it was in power again, and they agreed to commission two paintings, Second of May and Third of May. Both are striking, but this one in particular is pointed to by historians as a breaking point in how artists portrayed war and current events. Guernica (which I drew on 10/10) is a direct descendant of Third of May.


10-18-2018, 02:03 PM
Monarch - those alarms age great. I hope you enjoy the Lamy.
Gement - great images. Goya went a bit dark after that.
Arttorney - your subjects always seem reflective. Nice drawings.
Weles - love the insect.
Michael - what can I say? Very funny.
Kay - nice image - You've captured the drama and the movement in the floodwater.
Bonnie - Nice work combining tea and biscuits. Love the balloons.

Here's Day 18 Bottle.....


Drawn with a Pilot G-Tec C and water added. I started with the wrong pen though - a copper coloured Pentel Hybrid - hence some of the sparkly lines. :o

Naranjas y Limones, by Julio Romero de Torres

This classic still life is named in classic still life format, just called "Oranges and Lemons." Which is clearly the focus of this still life.

No particular story on this one. People didn't even try to have it banned or anything. It was painted in 1927. Lovely, isn't it?


* Apparently 'lemons' was a euphemism in 1920s Spain.

10-19-2018, 05:02 AM
gement - very nice lines (and curves :lol: )
Monarch - lovely butterfly, beautiful markings.
Kay - I love the minimalist lines, it must take some time drawing with a chopstick.
Weles - I like the hatching on each plane.
Michael - that's a weird interpretation of bottle, very funny though.
Arttorney - nice drawing.

Here's mine for 19 Scorched - I wonder how many of us will come up with the same idea........


Keep them coming - just 12 to go. :clap:

Wonderful, imaginative, witty, and thought provoking posts by everyone. It is a pleasure to follow this thread and every time I visit I am amazed at the amount of activity in it.

Here is my 13th sketch for Inktober 2018. This is a simple line sketch of a mike less kutchery (classical music concert) in progress. A well known corporate firm in Chennai has been sponsoring these monthly concerts in a public park that they maintain since 2007. The artists are school children. my sketch shows a vocalist and a boy playing the mridangam, a percussion instrument.http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/19-Oct-2018/31572-Mikeless_Concert.jpg

10-19-2018, 09:50 AM
More has surfaced since seeing this thread last night. My scorched scene is done but must wait to scan it this evening.

Kemical - what nice and colorful angles! OUCH on the bee stung lip!

gement - that's an action packed shooting scene!

Ron - Baby with bottle is super well done and your scorched shirt is one of those scenes we've probably all experienced!

arttorney - that is a great woman sketch; she looks relaxed.

Michael - your bottle over her head is entertaining for sure!

Weles, I'm loving your very pointed bottle sketch.

monarch - now your monarchs are superb and with color added even more so.

Balaji - Concert players are engaged in what they are doing, great rendition.

I noticed how I almost never draw cast shadow, so I tried to have some fun with it today and... I butchered it shamelessly.
It also turns out Isographs don't cope so well with quick linework.

Everyones' work is awesome and so imaginative! I sketched my antique rusty one handle colander as it was used to drain vegetables. It is white with the black handle. Sketched with STA Lictin 0.2 pen on Masters sketchbook 5.5x8.5.

Here's my day 22, it's saffron, one of the most expensive spices, if not the most expensive one

Love everyone's work! This was mine for 'breakable'


If anyone has any advice or tips for working with liquid ink I'd love to hear some techniques.

For 'expensive' I chose a $20 dollar bill as to me that is lots of dough :lol:

Love your posted works today!
