My Drawing Challenge for October

Despite the change in weather I am actually a big fan of October. Halloween is one of my favourite days as I love carving pumpkins and eating all of the interesting sweets that only seem to be around at this time of year. You can see just how much fun I have carving pumpkins on my Traditional Art page here.

October is also a great month for online artists since a lot of drawing prompt lists get released. The most famous of these lists being Inktober.

Created in 2009, Inktober was a way for the creator, Jake, to improve his inking skills and it went on to become a popular hashtag in the art community. Now, it is attempted by thousands of artists every year so you will probably see the hashtag #inktober pop up a lot on your Instagram feeds. If you want to give it a try then you can find the guidelines and prompts here.

I have decided that I am going to do both Inktober and another Prompt List by @ellolovey this year. I have completed previous prompt lists by @ellolovey and they are always wonderful for keeping my creativity flowing. Sometimes all you need is a one word prompt to get the illustration ideas rushing around your head.

I know it is probably going to be a big ask to keep up with two sets of prompts throughout the month but I’m going to give it my best shot. Here is a peek at @ellolovey’s list:
