Inktober 2018 Prompts


How’s it everybody. We’re rapidly approaching Inktober, a worldwide social media event that takes place every October where we ink to our heart’s content. Founded by Jake Parker, Inktober celebrates sketching with ink, drawing with intent, and living without Ctrl-Z.

The rules are simple (reference from

) Make a drawing in ink (you can do a pencil under-drawing if you want).

  1. Post it*

  2. Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018

  3. Repeat

To be honest with you all, I haven’t finished an entire Inktober yet (Shame on me!) However, I did come up with a little tip that might be of use to you all (and me!). Prior to Inktober, check out the prompts above and just sketch thumbnails for the entire month. Limit yourself to a certain amount of time and don’t overthink your sketches. Most importantly, just have fun with it all!
