This year, I participated in an art challenge called Inktober. What’s Inktober?
Inktober is a time when artists draw an image a day using traditional inking tools (biro, marker, ink wash, etc.) throughout the month of October.
For my theme, I chose isometric architectural and landscape drawings. For more information on what that means, check out isometric projection. That’s pretty boring stuff, but you may recognize the isometric perspective from video games like Simcity 2000.
In keeping with inktober, I stuck with black ink and gray markers. Here’s a few examples of what I drew everyday:
After a few days, I put 9 of these “tiles” together to form a little scene.
As we approached October 31st, I even created a Halloween themed scene.
At the end of the month, I finished 31 isometric ink drawings. It was a great challenge. It was a great fun! You can see them all on my instagram feed. You may need to scroll down a bit. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #inktober2016 to find all the other great artwork that was being created too.
One last thing, if you’re interested to see how these were created, I recorded some of the process. Check it out here:
Have a great week,
