I created a history of each day of my Inktober 2019 challenge. This article documents creative, tools, and materials choices. The purpose is to guide future participants toward success.

Day 13 “Magic Pumpkin”


The witch is placing a spell on the pumpkin. I easily imagine this image sculpted into a brooch with clear crystals as stars laid in antique silver. Pumpkin shapes intrigue me, and their leaves are magical. Stars are outlined in the black so they can stand out against the dark India ink. I wanted to use some fine tipped pens, especially around the witch, but I did not have them at the time. Shading the witch’s face was not done so not lose the detail.

Materials Used

Canson Bristol vellum paper, 100 lb. Pilot Metropolitan Collection fountain pen, medium nib. Black Noodlers ink but this ink is not waterproof even after dry. Low difficulty.
