@Cyril Jayant - What a cozy way for Snoopy & Woodstock to end Inktober! Such a lively drawing.

@AnasaziWrites - I had guessed it was McCaffery's Red-Violet that you used on "Rush"! I love that ink!

@Erica McPhee & Mike - there is indeed a certain irony to that mailbox for Rush/Urgent (especially living in a place where there is effectively no true "overnight" mail service). I have a huge respect and affection for the US Postal Service though.

Here it is - the final Inktober 2023 prompt! It's been an amazing month with you all! Thank you for participating and/or for offering encouragement and support! What an amazing community - thanks again to Erica for bringing us all together!

Fire

On a trip to Venice in 2004, we stopped by the Murano factory. They use a lot of fire there.

Well, I had grand ideas about some of the prompts, but didnít have the time. I almost gave up on finishing the last days. But I really wanted the accomplishment of tackling each prompt. So to finish, I had to let go of my previous plan and greatly simplify my approach. But, I did do all 31 prompts plus a couple extra. Days 22-31 below.

Eagerly awaiting the wrap-up thread.

I just wanted to say sorry to everyone for being absent for much of the last week. I wish I'd been more supportive than I have. :-[

I'm really grateful to @K-2 for suggesting I take part in Inktober, and to everyone for making me feel so welcome. Thank you all so much. I've been absolutely blown away by everyone's work Ė it's been incredibly inspiring. I'm going to miss seeing what everyone's been creating!

I couldn't allow myself to get away with only posting one piece. Here's something I tried in gouache again (this time, Schmincke Vermilion Red and Cadmium Yellow Hue Light Calligraphy Gouache).

I had lots of fun doing this Ė it's something I've wanted to play around with for a while. And it gave me the chance to write some uncial again, which I'm afraid I've allowed to fall out of practice a bit.

The result isÖ well, it didn't quite turn out as I'd hoped. Another attempt had a more convincing flame effect (and maybe better letters) but was spaced too tightly. But, hey, at least this gave me another chance to practise with gouache and can be a starting point for hopefully improving in the future.

Roll on Inktober 2024! :D

Erica said it all! This is great way to end Inktober, so much fire!!!

I am late again.  But I did receive my Ferris Wheel Ink and have gotten to play around with it. I am still taming it, but the effects of the ink are incredible (this one is Tumultuous tide). If a heavier flow of ink is used, you can get a lovely black outline of your letters. The variety of shades obtained is incredible.
And it's sparkly.

Now after a bit of playtime with the fancy ink,  I had to get back to work on my homework for the Fraktur class. Still figuring out the letter shapes!
I want to write the quote dear to my heart "Practice makes permanent" (or in full: practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent!").
I am happy I found a way to link the r and m (in the middle of the page), as I was struggling with getting proper spacing.

Anyway, enough rambling!

Night night everyone!
Oh crÍpe!
