    a tattoo every day for 31 days – you two must be insane!

    No turning back now that you’ve gone public about though – good luck

    It’s an ink drawing everyday for October.

    @malvern are you going to use prompts or just see how it goes?

    Anyone else doing it.

    I’m doing it this year with a group of mates via WhatsApp.

    Looking forward to it although one guy in the group is a graphic designer. The other is a full time artist, as an engineer results will be interesting.

    #SoWhatIsIt?

    #First result on duckduck go? Anyway to save others from having to google it’s basically doing a drawing every day for a month and posting them with the hashtag inktober. AI might give it a go. Will we post here?

    are you going to use prompts or just see how it goes?

    Going to go with prompts at first as it kicks me up the arse (which is the normal requirement to get anything out of me) ๐Ÿ˜‰

    If something else happens I’ll go with it. 31 is a lot. I may rely heavily on digital ink when the remaining house denizens are snoring or if/when I wake up and do some sketching of dreams and stuff so it’s handy and doesn’t disturb others/require exiting bed ;). #zenbrush2. Also have a ton of natural black pigment so will whip up a batch of real ink too.

    Here’s a couple from last month to get the ball rolling:

    *edit – (weird, sharing dream-sketches feels like I imagine taking my clothes off in public. The naked mind)

    What shall you be using holmes? Dip pen? Brush? Fibre?

    PS Freud was a dick.

    Might have a go at this. Studied art at uni but these days my output has reduced to occasional scribbly doodles.

    Yeah I’ll be doing it. It was hard to fit them in on weekends last year but ace fun.

    I decided to go with the prompts (although I see there are lots of alternative lists). Haven’t drawn with any regularity in years.

    Are these pics people are posting done on a computer? (Not that I have anything against digital art, just wondering as they look computery. But that could be cos I’m viewing them in a computer ๐Ÿ™‚ )

    Ink on paper then sketched over in photoshop because wgaf!? ๐Ÿ™‚
    The first prompt was “swift” so in addition to drawing something or someone swift I wanted to finish it in under an hour. Oh and then the vignette and hue were added in instagram.

    ace jimjam!

    Are these pics people are posting done on a computer?

    Those two I posted were sketched by finger using zen brush 2 app. Definitely look computery but it’s a great app for jotting ideas.

    Mixed up a batch of pigment with water. So thick it’s ink/paint but has a rough magic. Blacker than a black steer’s tuckus on a moonlit night

    Very cool. Reminds me of a photograph of mine.

    Just thought I’d do an image search for a swift just to check that the shape I was thinking of for the bird was correct. Disappointingly image search only returns photos of cars.

    Bit rushed, unoriginal, looks dead on ground rather than swiftly flying through air.

    I’m using dip pen and India ink.

    Just done a quick drawing of Morty with his eyes being opened by Rick. Due to a friend doing s pic of Rick so I ignored the prompt for today!

    It’s been many many years since I’ve drawn anything and my attempt shows.

    Might just put the first pic and final pic up to this thread. Weekdays will do dip pen in my lunch break weekends might use a brush.

    Who knows, forgot how much I enjoy mood of myself in art for a little while.

    Really like those, MalvernRider!

    Looking forward to seeing everyoneโ€™s efforts now. Fair play to anyone doing it.

    I found another promptlist on instagram which is much more in my idiom.

    I’m already annoyed because I used to love drawing Dredd.

    Some talented people on this thread.

    I inherited the geek gene at the expense of the artistic gene. I can only sit and marvel, keep ’em coming.

    What does one do to a Flickr URL in order to make it work in the IMG tags on here?

    You’ve inspired me to get the pencil out for the first time in 20 years! ๐Ÿ˜† I’ve no ink, might get some pens and give this a proper ago(Always used to like a good auld fashioned bic pen as it works abit like a pencil). Mibbe no every day, but a few to see if I can improve any, get the auld touch back!

    Quick 15 minute pencil effort on the poison theme to get my fingers working!
