Why is dA asking for a status update? Did Zuckerberg buy them out?
Happily dove into Inktober this year; I'm a notoriously bad hand inker, so this seemed like a fun way to work on that.  I've come to realize that its tool-dumbness that cripples my hand inks; I can ink digitally just fine, but a stylus is an idiot-proof tool.  All I really needed to learn was some basic pressure control, twisting or leaning my tool in any direction is no problem at all.  Obviously, this is not at all the case with actual tools, and I've had some comically interesting experiences trying to get even a simple tool like a micron to perform. All in good fun, but still.

Thankfully, I'm also following a number of people who are also Inktober-ing, and its been nice to see the full range of approaches.  Vestien, on the one hand, makes such beautifully delicate drawings each day that I want to weep and curse at my idiot hand.  Chris Copeland, on the other hand, looks like he just scribbles them out without any sketching, and yet they are just as enjoyable to look at.  So I'm getting over the compulsion towards a cleanliness that is almost certainly beyond me. Day 3 was me at my neatest, and to be honest, I enjoyed that about as much as a root canal.

Anyway, while I'm digging this exercise very much, I've decided to switch things up.  Instead of making a random drawing every day, I'm going to draw a story, and put that inking activity to work in making an actual comic. Its an idea I've had for a while, and 8 page re-telling of a piece of scripture, and I'll probably just tweet the progress.  So, if you want to follow my Inktober escapades, look for me at twitter.com/Adam_Maste….  Otherwise, the pages will pop up here as I finish them up.  Hope everyone is enjoying their October, Inky or otherwise, Adam Out.  :)

Inktober Days 11-13
Was away for the weekend, so I did these in my sketchbook.  The last was for Columbus Day; guess how I feel about that holiday.  :(
