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


    I created InkTober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.

    Anyone can do InkTober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.
    (description from the author)

    Inktober rules:
    1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

    2) Post it online

    3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016

    4) Repeat

    Note: you can do it daily, or go the half-marathon route and post every other day, or just do the 5K and post once a week. What ever you decide, just be consistent with it. INKtober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more you’re consistent the better.
    That's it! Now go make something beautiful.


    I invite everyone to jump in the inktober wagon and post their daily ink art on this thread :D
    Once over I'll do a showcase of the best artworks and post it on facebook and twitter! Let's be awesome folks!

    Ink includes ballpen so ballpen it is, I used to draw with a sign pen and make a pile of them filling my notes, though this is the first time I've known of Inktober, It be good to join in and further the experience :D

    Oh, what facebook page/twitter are you gonna post if I may ask @MR.Goblin

    I'll do a compilation of the best drawings on the top post. Then I'll invite @StoPCampinGn00b or @Keiji or anyone involved in the communication departement to make a gallery on the hive's facebook page and twitter to showcase the best drawings :D If the hive can attract more people into the art section it means I'm succeding at my job.

    One last question Xd, all my submissions must follow strictly the daily themes of the prompt list? Or I can draw whatever I want?
