Tokusatsu fans and artists brought their kaiju and henshin heroes inspirations to Inktober, the annual traditional medium drawing challenge held in October. 

Inktober is a drawing challenge started by artist, Jake Parker, in 2009 as a way to “improve his inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.” Since then, the challenge has grown worldwide.

The rules for Inktober are as follows:

1) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

2) Post it online

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2016

4) Repeat

Participants are encouraged to keep a consistent schedule, be it daily, bi-weekly, or weekly. The goal is simply to cultivate good habits.

Some of the Tokusatsu Network’s past Artist Features are currently participating in the Inktober challenge with their own tokusatsu-inspired work. Most notably among these include, Jordan Gibson, who took on the challenge to draw a Kamen Rider for every day in Inktober.

In addition to our past Artist Features, other artists also posted various tokusatsu inspired Inktober submissions.

Finally, staffers on Team TokuNet also participated in this annual drawing challenge with their own tokusatsu-inspired pieces.

Inktober is more than halfway through and we hope to find more tokusatsu inspired pieces. If you or an artist you know has a piece they would like to add to this list or to future Artist Features, please let us know in the comments below or you can use the submission box in the Contact Us page.
