As we get closer to Inktober many people who have been wanting to brush up on their inking skills have asked about any online courses or tutorials we know about.

In response to that, Inktober has partnered with @sktchyapp, makers of the popular art app, to offer an ink drawing class that will start on Oct. 1, 2018, and span all of Inktober 2018. Inktober founder @JakeParker and fellow ink artists @vinganapathy, @gunhildhope, and @Patrick.Hochstenbach will be teaching various inking techniques during the class. Sign up for the class in the Sktchy Shop. (Link in profile)

This should be a good class for beginning artists who are wanting to level up and get to an intermediate stage with their work.

Know of any other good online courses? Let us know in the comments. Thx!

By Willy Pogany 1882-1955

Pogany was a prolific Hungarian illustrator of children's and other books. He is best known for his pen and ink drawings of myths and fables. A large portion of Pogany's work is described as Art Nouveau. Pogany's artistic style is heavily fairy-tale orientated and often feature motifs of mythical animals such as nymphs and pixies, and in the case of this drawing: giants. (From Wikipedia)

Here's the official rules for Inktober. Tag someone who is new to the challenge!

The Inktober was created in 2009 by illustrator @jakeparker as a way to get better at inking. It's since grown into a worldwide art event every October. It's a month long celebration of drawing, creativity, and self-improvement. 〰
You can modify the challenge to suit your needs and abilities. If doing 31 drawings in a month isn't realistic for your schedule, set a goal for 15 drawings in the month and do one every other day. Or do one a week. Or just do one on the first day.

People who push themselves just outside their comfort zone get the most out of the challenge. Figure out what that is for you, set a goal, and work your hardest to reach it.

Use whatever inking tools you have available to you. Whether it's a bic pen, sharpie marker, or the latest Japanese brush pen, we've seen great art with all of those tools. 〰
Initially, the challenge of Inktober was focused on traditional inking. Although learning how to ink digitally is a skill separate from traditional inking it is no less valid. If you want to improve your digital inking skills then doing Inktober digitally is a great way to challenge yourself.

The prompt list is provided to spark your imagination. Its fun to see how different artists interpret the same word. But you do not have to use the prompts. If something else is inspiring you, let that fuel your creativity for inktober!

There's also inktober contests and giveaways put on by many art supply companies for people who participate in Inktober. Keep an eye out on our posts because we will be announcing those contests here. 〰
There's more more info about Inktober on out offical website:

Lastly, HAVE FUN! If Inktober is stressing you out, or making your life too hard, dial it back a bit do what you've got to do to make it fun.

That's all. Now go make something beautiful!

Pentel Fude Brush Pen, Extra Fine

From @jakeparker: This pen is my back up work horse and in some cases it's my go-to. I've inked an entire comic with it and it never falters. Makes clean, meaningful lines with it's durable tip.

Thanks for passing that prompt list around! So excited to see how everyone interprets the words!

Drawing by Jean Giraud aka Moebius (1938-2012). Found this in an old French book of collected Moebius drawings. Breathtaking use of cross contour hatching. 〰

This stuff is thick, and the brush is super fine. It gummed up on me a little, but otherwise a pretty good way to draw white lines.
