Inktober 2020: Days 19-25

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

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 1week 2, and week 3.

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.
