Every October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month. Jake Parker created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavour with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Read all about the rules of InkTober and the materials to use at the website http://mrjakeparker.com/inktober
Last year I took the InkTober challenge and joined in with INKed, a group of ink artists on Facebook where I have a folder of my ink drawings. We had a list of suggested topics which we could use if we wished. I used the daily prompts but also used the month to make ink portraits of the characters on Sprite’s Site blog https://spritessite.wordpress.com/
This is the picture of the Sprite’s Site community which resulted from Inktober 2014
The topics suggested by the INKed group for this year, which I decided I would use, were:
There are no themes for INKtober but if you are stuck and can’t think of anything to draw, please feel free to use these prompts to help you with ideas.

Sprite was quite offended to see that I had used a picture from 1 June 2015 of her to illustrate Exaggerated perspective on Day 9
But the Twitter Birds were pleased to see Twitter Bird pictures on Days 18 22 and 30
