And we’ve reached the end of Inktober. Overall, it has been a really fun and useful activity for me. Thinking of an image for each word prompt was a nice creative challenge in itself, and I got to practice my hand-drawn drawing skills, which were a bit rusty. I’m quite fond of how some of them turned out.

Here are the next ten Inktober drawings, only eleven more to go. I’ll continue posting them daily on my Instagram.

In case anyone’s wondering, I’ve been inking with a Zebra V-301 Fountain Pen, a Zebra Zensations Double-Sided Brush Pen, and a regular Sharpie marker. They might not be the most professional tools available but they’ve been working well enough for me.

11. Snow
12. Dragon
13. Ash
14. Overgrown
15. Legend
16. Wild
17. Ornament
18. Misfit

So I decided to try the Inktober challenge after avoiding it for several years. I’m limiting myself to only using black ink.
