Inktober 2017 Official Prompt List

That time of the year is once again upon us. You know, that month where we crank on full power, every day, for an entire month. That’s right, Inktober 2017 is here!

What is Inktober?

The concept is simple, the execution is brutal. Inktober is an event started by Jake Parker that happens every year over the month of October. Each Inktober, the participating artists try to draw 31 images in 31 days. It sounds simple but it’s quite difficult.

There are no standards you have to meet, no requirements or prerequisites to join. There are no entry fees, not judges or anything like that. It’s a community driven event that trends primarily on Instagram under the hashtag, #inktober and #inktober2017. That’s it, you put that tag along with your image and you have joined in the event. Though it’s fine to do only a couple images or what time permits, but the real challenge to yourself would be trying to complete the entire event.

Ink Drawings Following The Inktober 2017 Prompt List

As of this post, we are now on day 10 (update: day 21) of this years Inktober. I’ve been following the prompt list this year to help encourage me along with the busy schedule but even then it can still be fairly difficult to come up with an idea for the corresponding list item. As I continue working on my drawings, I will periodically revisit this post and continue to update it. If you want to see one of my images just leave me a comment and I’ll jump back into this post and update my image list for you.

UPDATE: We’re done!!!

It’s been a long and difficult road but we made it. I’ve seen some amazing artwork this month, met some great new people, and I’ve enjoyed it all. Though I’m glad it’s over since it is stressful and difficult, it’s been worth it and I’m happy with the drawings that have turned up from it all! Thanks to everyone who joined me in this years Inktober event!

So here is my list of drawings, what about you, have you ever participated in Inktober? If so, leave you info in the comments below and let’s share in the love of art. I’d love to see what everyone has been coming up with during the exciting, yet difficult event.
