Welcome to Inktober – Rules and Tools

Just a very quick post today! It’s October 1, also known as Inktober 1. I’m getting ready to begin my first Inktober drawing, so I’m going to share a bit of information from Jake Parker, the creator of Inktober.

First, the rules of the game:

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

2) Post it online

3) Hashtag it with #inktober and #inktober2018

4) Repeat

Second, the tools of the game:

For this, I’ll direct you back to the official Inktober site. Here’s information from his website on inking tools. You’ll see pens, inks, paper, and more!

I’ve previously shared the official prompt list for 2018, but here it is again. I hope many of you will decide to give Inktober a try!

2018 Inktober Prompts

Of course, you don’t have to follow the prompt list. It’s provided only as a convenience for those — like me — who aren’t sure what to draw.

Don’t like this prompt list but still don’t know where to start? No problem. A quick online search will provide dozens of different October drawing prompt lists. Whatever  you choose, have fun!

Be watching tomorrow for my first official Inktober drawing.
