Inktober 2020: Days 5-11

Update with this past week’s Inktober sketches!  Do you have a favorite so far?  Are you participating too?

If you missed last week 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 last week’s Inktober recap here. 

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