These are my ink drawings for the Inktober challenge in October 2023.

Inspired a bit by one of my videos.
Was this an excuse to draw the 5 ZŁ coin?
Maybe. It's a cool coin.
A bit more abstract today.
This time used also a syringe as an art creation tool.
Here I revisit one of my recurring themes, the "very helpful" map.
Today used not only pens but also brushes.
This was my first time ink painting with a brush.
This was a challenge!
I chose the Polish board game Fortuna (translation is "fortune") similar but not identical to Monopoly.
Today, on square paper.
The cloud was made by taking a piece of toilet paper,
rolling it into a ball, dipping a little bit in ink
and stamping on the paper:
The castle in Kamieniec Ząbkowicki.
I used a photo as a reference, of course.
Not 100% accurate but still I'm very satisfied with the outcome.
It's the BIG dagger from the game Myst 2: RIVEN.
getting the angle:
Window in st. Barbara church in Chorzów
copying sketch from printed reference:
The demon lady is the personification of
from the youtube channel
"Physics Videos by Eugene Khutoryansky".
This is a recreation of a scene from a video.
Some saddle-shaped curved plane.
the MULTICURVE tool was really useful:
A nice lazy ball of cat.
Oops, I forgot to mark the scale as Celsius.
2 different chains in the same picture.
gear angle calculation:
Scratch: the natural predator of compact discs.
How about some epicycles?
Planet motion as imagined by Ptolemy,
the ancient clever guy.
With 5 loops,
if I divide the circle into 60 equal parts by 6°
then for each one I can plot the planet's position
using only the compass
and the standard 90-60-30 and 90-45-45 triangles
without any additional angle measuring.
because at each position the angle as seen from the line going though the center
changes by 30° compared to the previous one.
Blue ink today.
Another one of my recurring themes:
bricks with interesting shapes.
It's the "clockwork beast" from the game The Neverhood
The game is in low resolution so it's hard to get a good reference picture
and the details are left to imagination and reinterpretation.
So instead of precise lines I went with rough and fast this time.
Also, I realised that this drawing also fits today's theme:
It has a beast and is done with ink in the correct day.
Angle grinder mass-producing metal sparkles.
Black ink today.
Used 4 pens and 1 brush.
The insane piano piece "Rush E" by Sheet Music Boss.
The new pens used today were perfect for these rectangles.
With special thanks to the program "Piano From Above".
Black and brown ink.
