Inktober 2018 Prompts - Miscellaneous Prompts

Welcome to the fifth and final post in a series of posts featuring prompts for Inktober – This week the is a bundle of Miscellaneous themes that did not fit into previous weeks! If you’re not familiar with Inktober I’ll be going into more detail in just a moment but basically it is an art prompt that takes place every October using only ink. There is a set prompt list created by the original Inktober founder, however, it has become such a wonderful community project now that there are so many new prompts popping up each year. Every year Inktober is responsible for the creation of so much fantastic art and connecting people with new artists. It is also so inspiration for many people and with so many fantastic prompts to choose from there is something for everyone! So I wanted to share them all before October comes around so people can take part or start following hashtags to see the wonderful art that emerges from these prompts.

Disclaimer: I have done my best to only include prompts in which the creators have clearly stated they are happy for people to share and take part in. If I have accidentally included a personal one or you wish for your prompt to be removed from this list please let me know and I’ll be happy to oblige.


About Inktober

Inktober is an art prompt that was originally created in 2009 by Jake Parker who wanted a challenge to develop his inking skills. It has grown from there to become a worldwide event with thousands of artists of all skill levels taking part. The prompt consists of 31 words that act as a prompt, an idea for an ink drawing for each day. As explained in the FAQ section of the Inktober website participants are welcome to use whatever medium they want and interpret the prompts in their own way. That includes working with calligraphy and lettering if that is your field of interest. In general the rules are pretty much lax about everything; if you want to do one a day or several in one day then that’s fine too! The whole point is to get together, challenge yourself and most of all have some fun doing it 🙂

Below is the official Inktober 2018 prompt list:



I would have loved to have done a post for every single theme I found but it was just not possible, so this final post is a selection of prompts that either did not fit into the previous weeks (Magic & Fantasy, Horror & Supernatural, Nature, and Fandom & RPGs) or have no distinctive theme. Here you can find some great music based prompts, especially if you’re a kpop or jpop fan, historical and cultural prompts, food prompts and also some prompts that contain a bit of everything we’ve seen so far.

Hey y’all! I don’t have school keeping me busy so I FINALLY have time to participate in Inktober this year! I want to use next month to work on my journey into becoming an illustrator with my favorite topic, FOOD. I’ll be doing line work or complete illustrations for 31 days and I hope to make some goodies out of them! I’m posting early for those of you prepping like I am. If you want to join me in illustrating some food, choose one of the photos and repost and tag me to let me know you’re joining my challenge, and don’t forget to use the hashtags #foodtober2018 #foodtober and/or #dwolfeinktober I’m excited to see what you all make! _____________________________________________ #inktoberchallenge #inktober2018 #inktoberprompts #inktoberprompts2018 #inktoberchallenge2018 #31daydrawingchallenge #foodillustration #foodpainting #fooddrawing #illustration #inktoberprep #dwolfeinktober #foodtober #foodtober2018

I made myself a list for #Inktober this year and figured some of you might want to join me! It's #Kpop- themed and I picked the songs either for their MV concept or the lyrics so make sure to check the lyrics of the songs as well! 🙂 (And don't be mad if your fave group isn't here, I also like other groups than just the ones listed lol) If you hashtag your drawing with #KpopInktober2018 or #KpopTober2018 I'll make sure to check it out and leave comments or likes! 🙂 Also tell me your fandom and bias ㅋㅋㅋ . Swipe ➡️ to see the full Korean Version of the songs. You should be able to find all songs on YT 🙂 (if not send me a PM) . . #art #artchallenge #Inktober2018 #Promptlist #joinme #fangirlmode #잉크토버 #잉크토버2018 #가요 #그림스타그램 # #KpopInktober #MusicInspires #いんくとーばー #いんくとーばー2018 #けいぽっぷ

. Swipe to see english version ⏩ . Ach, no i kolejny inktober przed nami! Kolejne wyzwanie, które będzie mnie nękać po nocach. Jednak tym razem postanowiłam sama wybrać sobie tematy. Czemu? . Z oryginalną listą tematów mam problem, bo PRIMO) nie wszystkie angielskie słowa można łatwo przetłumaczyć na polski SECUNDO) czasami tematy bardzo wykraczają poza moją 'granicę komfortu' – strasznie mi ciążą i zniechęcają do kontynowania wyzwania, które powinno być przede wszystkim dobrą zabawą ヽ(・∀・)ノ . Także, jeżeli macie ochotę, gorąco zachęcam Was do wzięcia udziału w tym (albo innym) inktoberze, bo instagram w październiku wypełnia się po brzegi wspaniałymi pracami ❤️ Powodzenia Króliczki! /(˃ᆺ˂)\ (PS: Jeśli chcecie, abym zobaczyła Wasze prace, używajcie hashtagu #inktoberek) (PS2: Cała idea inktobera należy do @jakeparker i konta @inktober) . EN: Another inktober on the way! I'm super excited about this one! And because I've already tried so many times and never actually made it, I really wanted to try make the prompts all by myself! So here they are ❤️ Good luck in your inktober journey! You can do it my beautiful bunnies! /(˃ᆺ˂)\ Tho don't put too much pressure on yourself because it should be primarily fun!

Over to You

That’s the last of my Inktober prompt lists and I would love some feedback from you!

Did you enjoy it?

There are other community art prompts throughout the year, as well as writing and blogging events too. Would you like to see more content like this on my blog?

Have you chosen a prompt to follow or have you made one of your own?

If you’re not taking part, are there any prompts that you’re following?

Let me know in the comments!

I would have loved to have done a post for every single theme I found but it was just not possible, so this final post is a selection of prompts that either did not fit into the previous weeks (Magic & Fantasy, Horror & Supernatural, Nature, and Fandom & RPGs) or have no distinctive theme. Here you can find some great music based prompts, especially if you're a kpop or jpop fan, historical and cultural prompts, food prompts and also some prompts that contain a bit of everything we've seen so far.
