I really didn’t want to do Inktober again because I already have a daily sketching habit. I had to come up with something new to make it fun for me. So, my personal Inktober challenge is to add a 5 minute timed sketch to my morning routine. This way, no matter HOW the day went, I still did one sketch.
This also helps to break any artist’s blocks for me and it starts the day in the right direction. I would recommend the 5 minute exercise to anyone looking to establish a daily creative habit. 5 minutes is a baby step in the right direction and anyone can spare 5 minutes a day. Some people get hung up on the sketch being perfect. It’s only a sketch! Perfectionism is a form of procrastination and avoidance or basically, just another excuse people use to not follow through. Sketching for 5 minutes can make all the difference in your skill level. If you get too hung up on being perfect, you’ll never finish anything. So set a timer and get stuff done!
Here are days 2-5…there also suggested prompts. Sometimes I follow the prompt, sometimes I don’t….
