Inktober 2015: Art prompts wanted!


So Inktober starts tomorrow and this year I plan to participate for the first time ever. The goal is to create an inked drawing every day for the entire month of October but since I have no idea how this is going to go for me, I’m planning on going the half-marathon route which is producing a drawing every other day.

My personal goal in doing this is to improve my inking skills and try drawing new things- this is where you come in! Feel free to leave me an art prompt or two in the comments and I'll draw as they come. To keep the feed from getting too spam-y, I’ll be posting the finished pieces here in a big post at the end of the challenge though they will be uploaded as they are completed over on my Instagram account- feel free to stop by and see how your prompt turned out. Wish me luck!

  1. Oooo Inktober, I found out about it like half way last year. Does inking my Thesis count? I don't know if I could do one everyday.

    1. I always seem to find out about these things too late so this year haha IMO inking your thesis would totally count!

    2. Hillary and I just talked and we're extending the baseline due date to Wednesday at midnight, might not do too much if the weather back east continues to be poor but at least that's a couple extra days.

  5. 1. A preening dragon (scales and feathers!)
    2. A dog playing in the baby waves at the beach (water splashing!)
    3. A dappled gray horse galloping (inking dappled grays is one of my favorite things!)

    And thank you for this. I didn't know about Inktober until you blogged about it! It's a great motivator to just SKETCH. I had stopped doing that. Thank you!

    1. I know the feeling ALL too well; went through all of August/September barely picking up a pencil so I needed this also! I'm glad you are participating this year :D
