Inktober 2018 brings out Egyptian Masterpieces

October has become a month that we wait for, not just for Halloween, but to get the opportunity of seeing inspiring art from all over the world. Every October, artists across the universe are encouraged to join the “Inktober” challenge; creating a different ink sketch every day throughout the month and posting it on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtag #Inktober

Every year, drawing subjects are selected by illustrator Jake Parker, the founder of the challenge in aims to give a real chance for artists whether beginners or professionals to work on improving their skills and sharing their art with the world. You can do it daily, every other day (half-marathon), or even once a week (like a 5K race). Whatever you decide, just make sure to be consistent with it.

“I created Inktober in 2009 as a challenge to improve my inking skills and develop positive drawing habits,” Parker wrote on his official website. “It has since grown into a worldwide endeavor with thousands of artists taking on the challenge every year. Anyone can do Inktober, just pick up a pen and start drawing.”

In its ninth year, the global online art event has come with interesting subjects and Egyptians have joined with relevant masterpieces. After four days of the challenge here are some of the results from Instagram:

Day 1: Poisonous

Day 2: Tranquil

Day 3: Roasted

Day 4: Spell

Apart from the universal subjects, some people create what speaks their own minds and what comes out is still as impressive:
