Number one in a four video series for Inktober covering the first seven drawings. In case you’ve been living under a rock and don’t know what Inktober is, it’s an annual 31-day drawing challenge started by Jake “The Snake” Parker.

That’s not true, nobody calls him The Snake. I got him confused with the wrestler…

…Anyway, back in 2009, Jake wanted to improve his inking skills and build better work habits. So he set a challenge for himself that every day in October he would make and post a finished ink drawing. And of course now Inktober is a worldwide event.

Each year, Jake puts out the official prompt list with a word for each day to help you think of ideas for your drawings. Like a bunch of other people, I’ve made my own prompt list. (see previous post)

For each of the four videos, I’m gonna show all of the drawings I did that week and then the last drawing will be a time-lapse of the process for a look at how I make the sausage… that sounded weird.

This is my first ride on the Inktober Party Bus, so hopefully by the end of the month, I will suck less at inking. Good luck to everybody else taking the Inktober challenge this year!
