Inktober Challenge, Week 4

The almost last week of Inktober. The original idea by the founder was to train using inks, and it works for me. Hopefully this can be an incentive to keep up training episodes better in other fields as well.
The prompts I used from the official list, in order: Trail, Juicy, Blind, Ship, Squeak, Climb, Fall.

Inktober Challenge, Week 2

Still training with the dry brush. I don't have a lot of time for the single pieces so most are just sketches, but I enjoy doing them, and I guess that's a lot.
You can find my challenge contributions daily on Artstation and Facebook:

Inktober Challenge, Week 1

Inktober is a challenge to draw in inks every day of October, and this year I finally found the time to join. There's an official prompt list I'm following to save me some time while squeezing this in to my daily routines (learn more about Inktober on the inventor's website, http://mrjakeparker.com/inktober/ ). I want to train using the drybrush technique which I find looks awesome - there are some tricks I have yet to master to do it convincingly, but I enjoy doing it a lot.

And this is Week 1's plunder. The prompts are, in order, Swift, Divided, Poison, Underwater, Long, Sword, Shy.
