So excited to announce the people from #AInktober week 1 who will be getting an advance copy of my book You Look Like a Thing and I Love You! People interpreted the neural net prompts in so many fantastic ways that it was hard to choose!

So #Stimtober has caught on enough that it needs to happen EVERY year.

It’s amazing that for a whole month, we can be aware of our innate ways of self regulating, stimulating and expressing ourselves, whether you’re #ActuallyAutistic or not.
#Stimtober started because I wanted to draw my #Inktober drawings with a theme of stimming, but then @lilririah announced “And thus, Stimtober was born.”

Thanks to her, it felt like the start of something big.
The singular moment I realized that I was autistic, was after watching videos of stimming on YouTube. I realized that I was tearing up, recognizing a part of me that I had long covered up with a mask of normalcy.

Day 2. DNA. Deoxyribonucleic acid carries the genetic information of all organisms. My favorite experiments in history are the Hershey-Chase experiment that demonstrated that DNA carried the genetic material of phage T2 and Photo 51: X-ray diffraction image by Rosalind Franklin
If you have suggestions for prompts for #scitober #inktober let me know!
Thanks to the people who noticed my DNA was left handed! 😅Here’s an updated version of B-DNA, see major and minor grooves included but not accurate.

Day 2 - 1st October

I have drafted for anti-totalitarianism, but yesterday was simply too shocking for me not to draw it
#FreetoberHK2019 #Inktober #Intober2019

Day 3- Tear Gas Extinguisher of the Smoky City

The similarity of Hong Kong and Chinese cities are we all have some smoky weather, but we still have the right to wear gas masks, for now.

ahhh it's day 1 of #Inktober and people are actually drawing the weird AI-generated prompts! #AInktober
"tiny cod flames rise" is not a prompt i thought people would be able to draw, but wow
everything changed when the cod nation attacked

I trained a neural net to come up with new #Inktober prompts and they're, well they're prompts

I have definitely not seen most of these before

My publishers @voraciousbooks and @headlinepg are giving away a couple of advance copies of my book to a few people a week who tag their drawings with #AInktober (US, UK, & Canada)

I'll be picking them according to *handwaves* criteria

More on the book: janelleshane.com/book-you-look-… Cover of You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How AI Works and Why it's Making the World a Weirder Place
@voraciousbooks @headlinepg I had trouble getting the neural net (especially the high-temperature one) to generate reasonably short prompts. Here are some of the #AInktober prompts it tried to suggest: Container Room Spider cyclone<br />
hatch with wonderful journey<br />
rolling stone hypnotic fetch<br />
barely disguised Awkward<br />
deep image speaks halting words<br />
Light dwelling adventurous stubborn monster<br />
hog ate goats fort protection<br />

*:✼✿#INKTOBER SUPPLY RECS✿✼:*゚
{A THREAD}

Getting into something as daunting as ink is very scary! I've worked with ink a lot and tho I haven't had the chance to do as many traditional pieces as I'd like, I definitely have my tried and true favs!
PAPER! //
Paper is probably the most important thing. I try to always work with paper that's 140 lbs (300 GSM). All the weight usually indicates is quality and price.
90 lbs paper is usually 'student grade' and pretty thin.
140 lbs paper is standard!
300 lbs is board-like.
For anyone, 140 lbs cold or hot press is a good start. If you want something with texture, choose a cold press paper, and if you want something smooth opt for hot press.

Some of my favs are ARCHES, FABRIANO, & FLUID. I generally get pads that are 6 x 6, 8 x 8, 8 x 10, or 9 x 12.

Supposing I were to train a neural net to generate Inktober prompts... what should the project be called? Neuraltober?
This is happening. Stay tuned.
A.I.nktober prompts are live! Now you have your choice between the official list of reasonable #Inktober prompts, or these entirely bonkers A.I. generated lists.

Because #Inktober is fast approaching, I'm going to take some time today to share my favorite techniques and practices I learned during 2018's Inktober in preparation for 2019 Inktober! - 1/?
Use a watercolor palette to mix different shades of ink wash!
Use a water dropped to control how many drops of ink and water you add to each dish in the tray. This helps keep ink washes consistent in value. You can even swatch each one out and make yourself a little guide. - 2/?
Letting an ink wash pool up on the page and then dry will create the dark-rim edge that looks so nice in an ink wash. I've found this technique to be very effective with my Yasutomo black sumi ink, which creates very nice and even washes. - 3/?

Meanwhile in BC:
February means #OpusDailyPractice, our local fine art supply store organizing prompts & meetup (opusartsupplies.com/odp)

I’m far from home, but I have a sketchpad & pens and I’m still trying to be less shy about my art, so let’s do this. 💚 Border & Riley #234 pad, Pigma micron pens in a variety of sizes, and a collection of grey, blue, purple, & red Copic markers
1. Kathmandu, Nepal.
I’m working with pen-only (#inktober redux?) & not fussing over scale as all my #geology #sciart has absurd vertical exaggeration.

...but I couldn’t accept the combo of a very small valley & the metamorphic pattern feeling more “Christmas” than “rock.” Partially-patterned ink drawingFully-patterned ink drawingIncomplete first draft, complete second draft of a detailed geologic cross section of Kathmandu valley in Nepal
2. Tehran, Iran
This feels like approximately a zillion variations of sedimentary textures (alluvial beds).

I had fun playing with miniscule variations in pen widths (💚 those microns!) for today’s #OpusDailyPractice #geology #sciart Ink drawing of a geologic cross section

Still very behind on #Inktober, but determined not to fail.

Anyway, here. Have a cheat sheet I can guarantee will annoy a lot of comic publishers. :V
CAVEATS:
- This isn't a replacement for an agent. If you want an agent, get one.
- No such thing as One Size Fits All.
- Kickstarting a book is not easy and you may not ever wanna do it and I would not recommend it to ppl without online audiences. But ask anyway.
Also, I totally acknowledge this defaults to a more commercial approach to publishing, and a lot of these questions are unfair to hobby pubs, non-profit pubs, and collectives. But if you are approached by a for-profit, commercial pub? Defend yourself.

Somehow, some way, I'm all caught up on #Inktober. It's all on my Drip. d.rip/ironspike

But I'll go ahead to share one of the five sketches here.

<cryptic> Weird to think we left of there, huh. </cryptic>
Man. If I were ten years younger, I'd probably have a modestly successful little webcomic Patreon right now. And that's all.

Such is life, eh? Omelette, break a few eggs, etc.

Most of you are totally lost right now, and that's okay. No biggie. ONWARD!
Okay, okay, one more, cuz she turned out so nice.

#Inktober index card 1: Relative dating is a snippet of simple magic. As soon as you stop to think logically, entire landscapes unravel in eagerness to tell you their story. #sciart #geology #teaching
#Inktober index card 2: #DonnaStrickland is the 3rd woman to EVER win the #NobelPrize in #Physics for her work on chirped pulse amplification, an engineering #optics technique to create short, intense laser bursts with broad industrial & medical applications. #sciart #cansci
#Inktober index card 3: I’m #TeamIce for #MinCup2018, infatuated with this simple & elegant mineral.

Here’s my interpretation of ice from chemical composition to melt molecules to crystal hexagons. I couldn’t find my blue pens for sketching the #thinsection. Shush.

Vote ice!

It was october, again, and the monsters were on the loose. The woman on the cover of the newspaper had a poisonous smile. Everybody was talking about her kidnapping. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir
"She's a witch. You know that, right? A famous medium." Lillie said, her voice tranquil, while she was working through the papers in the office. #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir
"I asked roasted beef for lunch, boss", Lillie continued. "We could use a client like her. They say she's very rich". #Inktober #Inktober2018 #storytelling #noir

#Inktober is here! Out of all the prompts/ideas for this year, the one that filled me with the most excitement was the 'choose your own inktober' by @genicecream from last year 🧡! So fun :) So I'm doing an interactive adventure featuring... you! --> #1: Alone in an open field
What do you do?
#2: You take a look inside the bag.

ok thread of tips for #Inktober, from someone who uses ink every day

this is aimed mostly at folks who are scared of ink/usually use digital or pencil
1. if you never use ink? start with ballpoint. that free pen you got from your dentist’s office or whatever. anything that’s got that kinda crunchy/sticky ink, not super liquid gel ink. notgood pic from google but pens like this
why? these act a lot like pencil- they’ll vary in value based on how much pressure you put on, which means you can lay down light guide lines if you need to

It’s time, stringlovers 😎 #inktober #creeptober
Oh yeah I should probably mention I’ll be working on a horror comic this inktober / creeptober based on the prompt “string”. So let’s call this 1/31?

Oktober telah tiba! Saya memutuskan ikut tantangan #Inktober2018 tidak mengikuti prompt. Tiap hari saya akan mengapresiasi tokoh2 yg lahir bulan oktober: satu wajah (atau lebih) tokoh populer untuk diilustrasikan tiap hari sesuai tgl lahir
Seperti hari ini.. 1 Oktober adalah hari lahir Julie Andrews... artis cantik yg kuat saya duga telah menemukan rahasia 'sun drop flower' atau mungkin 'tirta amerta' #inktober #Inktober2018 .. ada usulan siapa yg patut saya gambar besok?
Hari ke 2 Oktober #inktober #inktober2018, Saya membuat tema sendiri.. menggambar tinta tokoh2 yg ultah tiap hari pd bulan oktober. Hari ini atas saran @adharengga & @richoz
