What is Inktober?

Inktober is one of the most popular daily drawing challenges. The challenge has tens of thousands of users and has a huge presence on social media. Every year in October, people participating in inktober take on the challenge of creating ink drawings throughout the entire month of October. Most people try to do the challenge every day of the month but others do it every other day or even every week of the month. The Inktober challenge started out with participants thinking of their own things to draw but since 2016, the people behind Inktober have released a prompt list for Inktober to make it easier for people who struggle coming up with ideas to draw. Another great way of coming up with things to draw for Inktober is to look up the hashtag on Instagram and look at the other works people have made and take inspiration from those. If you want to practice on past prompts or you want to get some new drawing ideas, you can use the list of prompts from the previous editions. If you want more detailed and longer prompts, try our prompt generator at FakeClients.com/illustration. It lets you generate an unlimited amount of prompts for you to practice drawing on so you are prepared when it’s October again.
