Inktober is an online art project where you get a drawing prompt every day all October long.
This year I had some specific goals in mind. I wanted to work on character designs with odd body shapes and stances. I also wanted to work on my Moebius-style hatching using a pen instead of thicker brush pen, focusing on amount, length, curve, direction, etc, of the lines.
I took a lot of inspiration from old toys and video games, particularly Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle toys and Mega Man video games.
Overall I’m really happy with this year. I didn’t figure out everything I wanted to, but I certainly learned a lot just through practice. And the best part is having another personal little catalogues of ideas and techniques I can reference later.

Well done! I love how you stuck with your style and theme.
I did Inktober as well. I’m not particularly good, but drawing every single day always improves my work. I’m also doing the Inktober 52, where there’s one prompt a week.
Always looking forward to your next comic!
Thank you very much! I saw the Inktober 52, but passed. It’s a great idea to be honest, but drawing is hard for me, and I didn’t want to burn out. Good luck though!
