Here is a compilation of my favourite Inktober drawings and a breakdown of my yearly experiments:
.
.
2016:
•Learned how to do the research. (I knew how to do it for my design projects but I never did that for my drawings😅)
•First appearance of my famous background rectangle.
•Found out that a drawing doesn’t have to be coloured to look great.
.
.
2017:
•Went craaaaazy with hatching 🖤
•Rectangle is solid black (cause it looks eye-catching this way)
.
.
2018:
•Drawings become more complicated, there is a storyline.
•Tried to work on a bigger format.
•Rectangle? Either slightly hatched or replaced by a proper background scene.

2018 vs 2015 .

I’m in between things, guys. I’m also working on something very cool and very Christmasy🎄
While there is nothing to post, my urban sketchbooks come in handy.
.
.
One spot. 2 sketchbooks. 3 years between these sketches. 
I want to say something about my progress. 
But can I really? 
I changed my tools, which made me spend more time on my sketches.  That’s pretty much it. I mean, can you create a detailed drawing  of St Paul’s cathedral with a marker? I know I cant. But do details even matter when the perspective on the left drawing is absolutely screwed ..😂
.
.
It’s funny how my philosophy of urban sketching has changed. 
3-4 years ago I appreciated first impressions. I’d sketch for 5 min, capture the main bits and would go to another place. 
Today I’d rather spend half an hour observing the object. All these details, an atmosphere around me. Am I just getting old?
.
.
Would you like to see more ‘old vs new’ sketches?

September. I spent two days in Manchester. (Thanks @bubgelyte for hosting me 🖤)
If you are a football fan - you’ll love this city, no doubts. I was there while dealing with a travel burnout, that’s why the memories are a bit mixed up. But I was definitely impressed by architecture. Some of the old buildings are absolutely gorgeous (even though the city is industrial).

To all my new followers: hi, I’m a fan of urban sketching👋

This observatory was amazing, but the meridian? A big disappointment 😂 just a short line  on the ground surrounded by people.

#Inktober 
Day 31 - slice.
I sliced up some of my Inktober drawings to create something new. ☺️
Can you recognise the images I used?
:
I want to say that I’m done with Inktober. But I’m not. I missed 2 prompts. My inner perfectionist says I have to draw them...but I’m completely burned out. 
It’s my 3d Inktober and such a thing has never happened before. I’ll draw them when I feel like it. Might be this month, might be later.
:
Anyway, I want to thank you guys for all the support throughout October! Means a lot to me 🖤

Double chin, of course. 
Not sure how I feel about this drawing.

Day 28 - gift (подарок)
I should thank my  sister for a suggestion to draw pants as a gift for this ghost. We kinda felt sorry for this birthday boy (cause what would he need pants for?), that’s why he also got a sewing kit, so he can make something nice out of them😊
