Inktober 2019 Day 1/2

in #artlast year


Hi friends,

yesterday one of the most adopted art challenges, called #inktober, started. This month-long art challenge has been created by artist Jake Parker.

I created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits. It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year.


My Turn

Although it was originally meant to improve ones inking skills, there are already a lot of similar challenges around, that are generally dealing with the fact of creating an artwork a day during October. They go from oil-paintings (#oiltober) through generative art (#plottertwitter) to virtual reality painting (#inktobVR).

So my turn on #inktober is basically to create something every day of October and share the results.

Day 1 - Ring

Yesterday I used some artificial algorithm run through Runway to draw a simple ring and let the #AI create a metallic version of it. Here is the result:

In this screenshot you can see the original drawing, that the machine used to create the ring:


Day 2 - Mindless

Today I used another artificial model (AttnGAN) to create an image, that I could use for inktober inspiration:

As you can see, this model interpreted my text input "Mindless inktober day 2" to create an artificial image. I then imported the image into the digital drawing app Sketchpad and started to digitally ink it.


Here is the final result:

Hope you like it! Are you participating this year?

Thanks for watching!
