October Challenge

COMING SOON!
“INKTOBER 2019 
31 Days 31 Drawings”

Since 2009 in  October, artists all over the world take on the InkTober drawing challenge by doing one ink drawing a day the entire month.

InkTober 2019
Yes we are getting close to that special time of the year that gather artists all over the world together for this beautiful drawing challenge. Are you getting ready for Inktober 2019? I am brainstorming at the moment about how I like to take the challenge and plan my series.
Time goes fast and this is my 4th year of InkTober, I will do all my best to create something interesting and to be able to complete the 31 days.  This year I have been busy with my art and collaborations and accomplished nice thigs. If you are new to InkTober this is a great challenge that help to refine your sketching skills, stimulate your creativity at drawing and help to get you in a habit and routine to work daily.  This  is a great challenge for experienced artists and beginners. Anyone can participate you can choose to follow the official prompt list or make your own!

Today Jake Parker the illustrator creator of Inktober just released the new “Official Prompt List 2019” and I love to post it here so that you have some time until October 1st to plan and get ready!

My Inktober history:

2016  following the “Official Prompt List” I have created a “Fantasy Character Design”  which I love, her name is ©Ylia.  I have illustrated her adventures inspired by the daily prompts and developed her character and story throughout the month. If you follow me from the last 4 years, then you should remember my character Ylia,  the pic below shows one of my entry and you can see her. If you like to see more check all the other entries about her on my InkTober 2016  Gallery:

I had fun to create ©Ylia, she is a futuristic kind of “Superhero Warrior” with a nod to the past, she is a Messenger of “Love and Peace” and a creature of the universe that fight for the universal love. Most of my drawings were accompanied by quotes and Haiku poems that I wrote. Maybe one day I will publish an illustrated book of @Ylia Adventures! I would love that!  We will see what the future brings!

2017 I have Joined two amazing challenges InkTober and MabsDrawlloweenClub that is a little on a more spoocky – Halloween theme prompts created by Pop Surrealist artist Mab Graves!  My daily drawings were inspired by the combination of the two challenges daily prompt words creating my own hybrid challenge “DrawllooweenTober”  yes this was my plan idea to enable me to join daily both challenges at the same time creating one drawing. And well it was pretty challenging, not easy but I wanted to make it harder and more challenging to stimulate creativity and I made it! The outcome was a lovely collection of dark themed spooky drawings which I am very pleased! My drawing “Frankenstein Bride” of this series become my first Die Cut Sticker just launched! And if you like see more click the link of my  Gallery Inktober+ MabsDrawlloweenClub 2017

Now available on Etsy Shop Carolina Russo Art!

2018 Last year I have joined again the two challenges, I really love both and the community of participating artists around these two challenges. I didn’t want to miss them so I’ve participated with my hybrid mixing the two prompts and my own hashtag is  #drawlloweentober  you can see my Gallery Inktober+ MabsDrawlloweenClub 2018

Today Settember 1st 2019 were released both challenges Official Prompt Lists.  Right now I have time to think and plan my way to drawing for these challenges! Here there is the MadsDrawlloweenClub prompt list 2019 


These Challenges are open to anyone that love sketching with ink pens and if you’re member of the #worldwatercolorgroup you’re free to add a dash of watercolor. I hope that some of you will try this and join me and thousands of other artists around the world. You don’t have to be drawing every day if you don’t have time. You can drawing every other day, or every few days, or one entry a week! Doesn’t has to be a complicate drawing, it can be a small sketch, it will help you to develop a habit and refine your skills. Btw if you’re not crazy like me you don’t have to participate to both challenges just pick one! 😉 Good luck everyone hope to see you in October!

Here is the INKTOBER Story andRrules:

Day #27: Double Challenge #Drawlloweentober2018   

Prompts:
> #Inktober  Thunder

> #MabsDrawlloweenClub  Swamp Thing

Day #27 For today prompts Thunder and Swamp Thing I had to brainstorm a little, because how do you draw a thunder? Think about it! Is not easy and I had to do the combination with a Swamp creature, of course everything has lots to do with water. First of all, I decided for the stormy tones of grays and purple and I wanted drawing a nice figure and not a monster swamp thing. The girl in my drawing represents the swamp creature and she is the “Storm Queen” as she carries on her head a cloud with lighting and thunders! Sure I had fun drawing! Let me know your opinion!
