Animator and illustrator Jeca Martinez has created a beautiful series of stop motion ink drawings for Inktober 2017. Inktober is an annual art challenge that encourages artists to create art using ink throughout the month of October.
For Jeca, this meant a perfect opportunity to showcase the power of animation over static ink works. Thousands of artists take part in the challenge, 31 days of 31 drawings, and use it as a way to share their work on social media platforms.
Inktober was created by artist Jake Parker as a challenge to improve inking skills and develop positive drawing habits.
“As an animator I wanted to push the boundaries a little bit and create stop motion animation of animals using water and ink,” Jeca says.
She has posted her process for each ink animal on her YouTube channel with the goal to create 13 videos to be released every Monday, Wednesday and Friday of October.
Jeca began using Photoshop and Flash in school and her early work landed her a full art scholarship at the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde. She graduated with honors in a Bachelor’s Degree in Multimedia Art.
