IT IS OFFICIALLY INKTOBER, SUCKERS!

Well, not really I guess, considering it's still September--BUT STILL.

Point is, it's just around the corner, and I am VERY excited.

However, I've found that I'm not all that found of the official prompt list that's been set out this year. It's not like it's a bad prompt list or anything--I just feel like I can make one that'll be a better fit for me personally.

And who knows, maybe my prompt list will be a better fit for you too.


Day One:
My sun, my moon, my stars.

wallpaper, space, and planet image wallpaper, pink, and planet image Temporarily removed Temporarily removed
I'm a sucker for stars, so I just had to add this one in here. And for the first day no less.

Day Two:
Music.

Inspiring Image on We Heart It art, quotes, and drawing image sally, blink 182, and i miss you image Image by issa_love
This could literally be anything from the lyrics (as shown above) to drawings of the instruments themselves. You could even just turn on a song and draw whatever the music makes you feel.

Day Three:
Garden witch.

Temporarily removed plants, nature, and green image plants and window image flowers, illustration, and drawing image
Garden witches are dope, how could you not want to draw a garden witch?

Day Four
City Witch.

Flagged For Review Image by 𝑎𝑑𝑣𝑒𝑛𝑡𝑢𝑟𝑒 💫 Image removed gif, art, and witch image
City witches are also pretty dope.

Day Five:
Lights.

Temporarily removed light, blue, and sky image light, black and white, and black image light image
I absolutely love lights--and I believe you could take this prompt literally almost anywhere. You could draw anything from a lamp to a flickering jack-o-lantern candle.

Day Six:
Bands and artists.

all time low, art, and artist image art, blue, and drawing image bands, fan art, and vapor image luke hemmings, 5 seconds of summer, and 5sos image
Obviously what you draw doesn't have to be this detailed, but you could go that way if you wanted to. (And yes, I am aware that half of these aren't even in ink, just roll with it okay?)

Day Seven:
Books.

harry potter and hp image Calypso, leo valdez, and caleo image Temporarily removed art and journal image
Draw your favorite characters, a favorite setting. Anything book related.

Day Eight:
Cities.

I am just so in love with cities.

Day Nine:
Movies.

jack, sally, and Halloween image pedro, funny, and napoleon dynamite image matilda, book, and movie image spirited away, anime, and chihiro image
Basically just the same concept as the books prompt, but with movies.

Day Ten:
Animals.

Inspiring Image on We Heart It Temporarily removed fox and animal image cat, animal, and black image
Animals are almost always fun to draw, so I thought I'd add that in here too.

Day Eleven:
Sea creatures.

turtle, animal, and summer image fish, photography, and sea image Temporarily removed ocean, animal, and sea image
Also another fun one :)

Day Twelve:
Rooms.

batgirl, anime, and art image art, alternative, and neon image Temporarily removed Image removed
I've always wanted to draw something like this, but I've just never gotten around to it. I guess I have no excuses now, lol.

Day Thirteen:
Patterns.

wallpaper, background, and lemon image Temporarily removed aesthetic, black, and cool image waves, black and white, and background image
Stuff like this is just soooo relaxing to draw though, omg.

Day Fourteen:
Cartoons and TV shows.

gravity falls and wendy image the office, funny, and party image funny, psych, and rich image marshall lee image
Lol, I could only find art for the cartoons, sorry. I just had to include The Office and Psych in this, they're my favorite.

Day Fifteen:
Create a new creature.

animals, art, and artist image animal, anime girl, and apple image art, beauty, and creature image antlers, art, and girl image
The top left is actually my own drawing. His name is Bert.

Day Sixteen:
Flowers.

fashion, model, and photography image flowers, aesthetic, and blue image flowers, art, and blue image designs, digital image, and element image
Flowers are basic, I know, but oh well. They're pretty and they're fun, so deal with it.

Day Seventeen:
Self portrait.

Temporarily removed art, boy, and drawing image art, stars, and face image art, girl, and draw image
It can be realistic. It can be a cartoon. Whatever you want.

Day Eighteen:
Original character.

girl, art, and blue image art, girl, and drawing image illustration image Temporarily removed
I just LOVE coming up with my own original characters--they're so fun.

Day Nineteen:
Sad.

Day Twenty One:
Birds.

Temporarily removed bird, wallpaper, and background image animal, penguin, and snow image bird, winter, and snow image
I'm not keeping this very Halloween, am I? Maybe the next couple will make up for it.

Day Twenty Two:
Autumn.

autumn, fall, and leaves image autumn, pumpkin, and fall image Temporarily removed Temporarily removed
Draw anything that reminds you of Autumn.

Day Twenty Three:
Costumes.

So, I'm kind of too lazy to find any nice pictures for this prompt, but basically you'll just draw a person or character in some sort of costume. Sorry. None of the pictures I found were aesthetically pleasing enough for me to use, lol.

Day Twenty Four:
Youtubers.

Sorry for the double Dan and Phil. I just really love them.

Oceans.

Isn't the ocean just gorgeous though?

Day Twenty Seven:
Pumpkins.

Pumpkins are literally the best.

Day Twenty Eight:
Vampires.

I just really like Adventure Time. Sorry.

I love drawing trees, honestly.

Draw literally whatever you want. Anything. I'm not gonna tell you what to do.
