My #Drawtober 2020 month

I joined the NYC chapter of Women in Animation this September, and hopped on their Discord server to find they were warming up for Inktober. But something’s going on with the Inktober thing, so thankfully WIA made a prompt list of their own this year!

These were all done in Procreate on my iPad, taking from 15 minutes to two hours, depending on how much I was feeling it. These are all obvs just sketches, and not finished works.

Their prompt list:

Er… this is definitely the weakest one because it’s hard to tell that the camera is overhead everything, looking down on the scene.

Poor TNR cattos. It’s for their own good but they have no idea what’s going on the entire time. Really people, just give a ton of money to Flatbush Cats so they can take care of these bebs.

Thanks for looking!
