Inktober 2021

Updated: Mar 8

This is a selection of some of my best #inktober2021 challenge submissions.

It started off with just illustrations. I loved using my new toy, the #iPad, and #procreate (a name I still chuckle at). The first few I had fun with them and then I realized that I could make this even more challenging by #Animating them.


I don't know if you have ever heard of the #inktoberchallenge but essentially, every day in the month of October, you are supposed to create an inked (or FINISHED) artwork every day based on a prompt list that they only reveal at the start of the month. SO imagine this, I get 4 #illustrations into this challenge and I decide instead of just doing one drawing per day, I'm gonna do dozens by animating each of my submissions.


Some of them were simple and some were deceivingly complicated. I used two main apps to animated these. The first was #Procreate. The second was #Calipeg which ended up being my main hand-animating tool because it was way more robust than the former.
