Inktober 2021, StarCraft!
written on Thursday, November 4, 2021
This year I once again participated to Inktober, the yearly challenge where you draw and ink one drawing a day each day of October. The Inktober web site provides a "prompt list": a list of words for each day, which you can (but are not forced to) follow.
Inktober 2021 prompt list
I have been playing StarCraft II in the last few months so the first word: "crystal" made me think of a Protoss pylon... this ended defining my theme for this year: 31 StarCraft II drawings! Some words required a bit of creativity to find a StarCraft link for them, but I somehow managed to find an idea for all of them.
Some of them are reproductions of existing art found on StarCraft II fandom wiki. Those were not super creative but I think they were a good exercise. I learned a lot, especially on the topic of filling empty areas. It was hard though, some drawings took a lot of time.
This year I limited myself to 2 colors in addition to the black pens. Unsurprisingly, by October 18th my two markers were dying, and I had to replace them :)
Here are my drawings of this year:
Which one do you prefer?
