Inktober 2018

So once again, this thing is done! I made it. I strayed a day while away in Lithuania during the middle of month, but caught up the next. Hope that's OK - I didn't want to compromise my one day of pure vacation.

This year I've been drawing my doodles via this, instead of Flash 8 as I've done the previous two, and I've been using the Wacom only with some of the latter pieces, since basically... I forgot about it.

But then when I remembered, and started using it again, I realized that without the smoothing function that professional programs like Flash (now Animate) or Photoshop so gallantly provide you with, it was actually harder to make the lines go the way I wanted to with a pen than with the mouse.

Blame habit. Blame an old tablet. I don't know. I ended up using the pen mostly for line-intensive work for this reason, and the mouse for everything else: mainly single dots (the pen has a tendency to stray) and smoother forms.

Not sure what tools I'll go with next year, but if opportunity allows it's always fun to try something different! Cheers to this years great collective; all the creativity it spawned, and looking forward to the next.

Inktober 2018 over and out.
