About FakeClients Painting is an easy-to-use, free tool for beginning painters to practice their painting skills. Using the painting prompt generator you can generate prompts that you can work on as if they were real clients. Use these prompts to practice, fill up your portfolio or prepare for a job interview.

To generate your first prompt, simply click the "Generate Brief"-button. A randomly generated painting prompt will be generated for you. Because of the huge amount of potential combinations, no prompt is the same. Click the button as much as you want until you get a painting prompt you would like to work on. Try to work on the fake client prompt just like you would when working on a real client's request and go through your whole painting process to get as much practice and the best result.

Random Painting Generator

If you're someone who likes to paint regularly, you probably know about the fact that most people have a hard time thinking of new subjects to paint after you've painted for some time. This is where a random painting generator, like FakeClients, comes in handy. FakeClients helps you get out of this state by generating random painting prompts for you, as if it were a client that is contacting you to commission you for a painting job.

Getting Feedback

Once you are finished with your painting, you can add it to your portfolio, share it or try to get some feedback on the feedback platform of FakeClients. Go to and post your illustration and the other FakeClients users will gladly offer you helpful feedback for you to improve your painting. To improve your chances of getting feedback, be sure to give some feedback to other users and ask them what they think about your work. Don’t be afraid to post your work on, it doesn’t matter if you’re an absolute beginner or a professional, the community on our feedback platform will be kind and provide you with the feedback you need. If you want to get some more exposure for your work and social media account, you can check the “allow sharing” checkbox on the feedback form. Your painting will automatically be shared on the FakeClients Instagram account and your username will be tagged if you decide to fill that in as well. You can also share your illustrations on Instagram or other social media platforms using the hashtag ‘#fakeclients’.

Using FakeClients as a painting challenge

Many people decide to use FakeClients’ generator as a painting challenge. This is an excellent way to get yourself to practice painting. Simply create a list of a number of briefs and decide on what timeframe you’d like to complete the challenge. These drawing challenges typically last for 10-30 days but some people even decide to do it for 100 days or more. When you use FakeClients, deciding the duration of the challenge is completely up to you. You can even decide to use it twice a day or a few times per week.
