Inktober 2015: Day 25 by RachaelSelk
Inktober 2015: Day 25
My friends son came up with a story about zombies that go after chocolate instead of brains. And the chocolate store keeper had to teach the zombies to get a job so that they would buy his chocolates instead of stealing them… this image came into my head…

Inktober 2015: Day 23
There are days that I have no motivation…that and I fell behind a day and had to do two drawings. This was my first one… 
If you haven't heard of Inktober, that's ok. I knew nothing about it a few weeks ago myself. A friend had posted on Facebook about the Inktober challenge and I couldn't help myself but to plan to do it. I got geared up, made sure I had enough pens and inks, a fresh notebook, then all I had to do was white knuckle it till October first. 

Don't worry, I was doing other art while I was waiting, but I didn't want to do any ink drawings (unless I was doodling) for fear of 'using an idea' before it's time. 

Inktober is where you draw one ink drawing a day for the whole month of October. In the end, you will have 31 original drawings, have betting ink experience, and have set a habit to daily draw. Once I realized that was all that there was to it, I got excited fast! 

So now my gallery will be busting with ink drawing for a while, and so far (since it's day 2) I am Loving it! I draw in the morning, and then when I'm at work I can't stop thinking about getting to bed and go to sleep so that I can wake up and draw some more! 

Hehe…some of us are just meant to be artists. :) 

It's not to late to start! I know that you can do every other day if that's easier for you or more convenient. And you can do a once a week if need be. As for me, I am greatly looking forward to see 31 images that slowly progress in my style, quality of work, and all the different things that I can think of! 

Have fun this Inktober! I know I will!

I really liked your arts and style. I know how its hard to draw with pure ink, only a mistake and whole drawing is gone to trash :( It requires courage to do what you have been doing. I want to congrats you and wish you luck, keep going :)

You're ink work is really impressive! Do you work in dip pens perchance? :)

I had a fountain pen but then it broke. At the moment I am using prisma color pens. They hold a symilar quality to a fountain pen, but deffinantly different. There's a little bit more control with the prisma color. I'm glad you like my ink drawings! :)
