Whenever I tackle a project I like to be prepared. I do my research, have my reference ready and work from there. I’m a little intimidated with Inktober simply because I’m a slow creative, and you have to do a drawing everyday.
To decrease the time I take to create I decided to do some prep-work ahead of time.
As I said in my last post. I’m going to follow the official prompt list for Inktober. So that was a good place to start.
I typed out the list in word and printed it out on a piece of paper. So I could write down ideas next to each word. Then I sat with a pencil and let my imagination run wild.
Teeming gave me the most difficulty. But in the end I found something that will work and not require me to draw a swarm.
Ideas down and ready to go the next step was to find reference. So I went to my favorite place.
I started hunting and so far I’ve found reference for about half my list already.
I was amazed at the variety of reference I could find there. Just type in what you are looking for and they are bound to have some kind of reference that you can use without worrying about copyright.
