Inktober 2019 Days 14 – 18

It’s the half way point! I think that using a sketchbook for Inktober works out way better for moral purposes. Flipping through the book and seeing so many finished pieces makes me feel like the rest of it is possible! I’m not sure why but these drawings all give me Halloween vibes.

Oh, by the way, all of the tiles of the last post and this post are titles I’ve given to the finished work not the prompt name. I don’t want to give away all the prompt words in case you want to get the October Creative’s Inspiration. (it’s on sale right now if you want to check it out!)

Day 14 Beauty in Decay

I think I had the most fun with the vase, it looks like marble and I really love the blue. I’m not a stranger to wilting flowers, but I love the white rose in this one, it make me wonder how people can throw them away… I used Faber-Castell Pitt pens, colored Bombay India ink, a dip pen, and size 6 round golden taklon brush.

Day 15 On The Wind

I haven’t a clue where I got this idea from, but I’m so happy with it! I’ve been practicing my clouds, I think it paid off here. I used a deer foot brush for the star splatter, but a toothbrush works just as well. I used only colored Bombay India ink and a size 6 golden taklon brush on this one.

Day 16 Corn Aplenty

I thought the colorful corn was fun to make, but slightly tedious to outline. I hid some things in the kernels, can you find them? Comment what you see and how many. I used Faber-Castell Pitt pens, colored Bombay India ink, and size 6 golden taklon brush.

Day 17 Ye Olde Coffin Shoppe

Don’t these look comfy? Just what you need for a long rest in peace or a quick nap depending on your preferences… I used colored Bombay India ink, dip pen and Speedball carbon black ink, Faber-Castell Pitt pens, a size 6 golden taklon round brush, and a white Uni-ball Signo gel pen.

Day 18 Mid Pop

As the name suggests I’m hoping this conveys the popcorn being in various stages of transformation. It’s kinda amazing watching something small and hard turn into something light and puffy… I watched a few slow motion videos of popcorn popping to get an idea of how they really look. I used a white Signo gel pen, a .005 Faber-Castell Pitt pen, golden taklon round brush, and colored Bombay India ink.

I’m pretty happy with my progress so far, hopefully I can at least get passed day 21 this year.


Sorry all the photos have cookies in them, I was baking and taking photos at the same time. 🤣😅
