- How often are you planning to participate (daily, weekly, etc)?
I am posting a new character illustration, along with a process video (IGTV), daily on my social media platforms.
- What are you using to guide your drawings (such as an overarching theme and/or the prompts list)? Give details.
I am following a prompt list created by @odnatamyara and @soniastegemann over on Instagram called Monster Mania. Every day’s prompt is a new monster to draw!
- When are you planning to make time to do your ink drawings?
In previous years I have failed doing all 31 days of inktober! This year I vowed it would be different! I started sketching and planning in early September. I even went so far as to concept out all 31 days and scrap them to start over. Instead of the complex ideas I originally had, I decided to create simple and appealing characters to expand my portfolio. In late September I started inking to have some photography and video footage edited for October 1st. I find I work well in batches, it’s easier to schedule in a few FULL painting/inking days rather than have my creative energy scattered and possibly miss a day because, well, life in 2020. Now I just have a few more pieces to finish and videos to edit and I will finally have accomplished my life’s mission of finishing inktober, mouhahah!
- Are you planning to use these drawings once your done other then just posting to social media?
I am planning to have all my originals (ink on watercolour paper) up for sale on my new website/shop (launching end of October...I hope...cough cough) Prints eventually. And I would love to make a little zine with my 31 characters. Even if I only make a copy for myself! I’ve grown quite fond of the little ghouls
Thanks so much for takin the time to read all my jibberjabber!
