Inktober 2020: Days 12-18

Another week down!  Do you have a favorite drawing from this past week?  Are you participating too?

If you’ve just started following along and are unfamiliar with Inktober, it’s an annual drawing challenge that encourages artists to create a drawing each day with ink based on a list of daily prompts.  It’s a great way for artists of all ages and skill levels to grow their skills.  Catch up on the weekly recaps:  week 1 and week 2 .

I recently shared some tips on shading for anyone who beginning drawing or needs a refresher.  You can read 4 Shading Techniques for Ink & Pencil here.
