Inktober sketches Days 6 – 12

I haven’t been posting these daily because I’d rather post them as a group.  Most of these Inktober sketches are 5 minute sketches except for the Breakfast Crawl sketch that I snapped a photo of before I added watercolor to it.   I start my  sketches by checking the Inktober prompt for the day that is taped to my calendar, then I use the Sktchy app for my inspiration.

For the ones that I do in my morning pages, I set my timer for 5 minutes. This way I am forced to say what I need to about the subject with minimum lines and it forces me to work quickly. 

My own personal Inktober challenge has been to add a five-minute, timed sketch to my morning routine. This way, no matter how the day goes, I still did one sketch. It helps break artist’s block for me, and I would recommend the five-minute exercise to anyone looking to establish a daily creative habit. It is one baby step in the right direction and anyone can do it. It forces me to not be so hung up on Perfectionism, which can be a form of procrastination and avoidance, and just sketching for five minutes can make all the difference with skills and creating quick art.
