Starting in 2009, Inktober is a month-long daily challenge created by artist Jake Parker (who has become somewhat controversial in the last couple years. You can look up those controversies yourself. Suffice it to say that most artists, myself included, are often not necessarily great at business). Inktober has four simple rules:
1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).from inktober.com/rules
2) Post it
3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2020
Last year was the first year I ever completed 31 days of Inktober drawings. This year, at the behest of a friend, I’m going through the OFFICIAL Inktober prompts. Today’s prompt was “Fish,” so of course I drew a six-eyed, undersea monster. Alas, the brain of Psycho Andy can’t think of nice things to draw.
It’s somewhere between the mermen from Castlevania: Symphony of the Night, and the Trench monsters from the 2018 live-action Aquaman movie, with a touch of the old Black Sea Venom action figure from the Spider-Man Web Splashers toy line. It’s not perfect, but it’s all ink, so there was no correcting anything I put on paper.
Come back tomorrow to see what other madness my brain comes up with!
Remember, random old monster drawings at 9 AM Eastern/6 AM Pacific, AND new Inktober 2020 stuff at some random point (like when I get all my day job work done) throughout the day, all month long!
