I'm tuning into inktober again, but differently this year. It has been quite productive, but so exhaustive last year that I feel an inner resistance in following the prompt list again. I actually wanted to draw a little story with two characters, which advances with each day's prompt ... but - it won't make so much sense from a certain point. Now after breeding over the list with no more idaes, I decided to check out what you guys are doing and found Josh's approach quite helpful:
@jdubz said in Who's doing Inktober 2020, and what are your plans?:
I think I'll be doing it this year, but I'm not planning on following the prompt list. I found it a bit of a slog last year, so I think what I'm going to do instead is break it down into 4 weeks, pick what appeals most from the prompt list or just use a project subject I've been thinking about doing it, then spend a week at a time doing each one.
Thanks Josh, this helped me coming up with this:
Are you going to do one large piece, or multiple/daily pieces?
one a day or one in each five days - still to be decided.
Will you be sticking to the prompt list?
I'll stay with the official prompt list, but separate it into bundles of five days and pick the one that attracts me most of each bundle. Then I'll be working on this prompt for five days (six days for the last bundle).
Will you be planning/sketching ahead of time, or will you be winging it daily?
I'll collect ideas within the next days and will try to sketch some of them. But I'll certainly not have a finished sketch for each day when october comes
What is the main thing you want to take away from the experience ?
Good you're asking, because I think it's helpful to know what I'm creating for. I'd like to some visibility. And I want some pieces for my portfolio OR pieces I can use as a base for doing some coloured versions of for my portfolio.
