Inktober 2018 Prompts - Fandom & RPG

Welcome to the fourth in a series of posts featuring prompts for Inktober – This week the theme is Fandom and RPGs! 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 an 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.

2019 Update

If you’re looking for 2019 prompts head over here. Each year I’ll be using Pinterest to collect and organise prompts. You can find all the 2018 prompts in their own board:

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:

 

 

Fandom & RPGs

We’ve had Magic & Fantasy, Horror & Supernatural and Nature prompts, and now it’s time to take inspiration from the fandoms we all know and love. Whether it be your favourite video game that you’ve logged hours into exploring or beating that level, that TV show or anime you love to binge, the timeless movie classics or the books that give you endless pleasure. These prompts are dedicated to all things fandom – and RPGs! With the likes of Critical Role and other groups streaming their DnD sessions more people are becoming roleplaying geeks which is fantastic to see. So you’ll also find in here a bunch of DnD and roleplaying related prompts including one for Critical Role and Exalted.

For Inktober, I’m going to be doing Kaitober if that is even a thing. I’ll make it a thing. I kind of want to promote some producers that use Kaito in their songs by drawing fan art of those songs throughout October. If you all want to join and blow up the Kaito tag that would be awesome. For those who don’t know who or what Kaito is, he is a computer software called VOCALOID that is used to create songs. He is the first male Japanese VOCALOID. All copyright goes to Crypton Future Media and the Song Producers (and Internet Co. for a few songs in the playlist…). I’ll just be drawing fan art because Kaito needs all the love. I made a playlist of all the songs featured in this Prompt in order. https://m.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL9N3Or5H6rljdPNPegTswJd547L-TIkDt #vocaloid #kaito #kaitovocaloid #kaitober2018 #inktober2018 #myprompt #projectdiva #kaitov1 #kaitov3 #cryptonfuturemedia #inktoberprompts2018 #inktoberprompt #kaitober

Hi friends! I was thinking about what I wanted to do for #inktober this year and I decided I wanted to do #witches! (also the hashtag #witchesarewe was basically unused and I liked it). So I create a list of assorted witches from tv/movies and books (or both) that I thought I would share. I love the subject of witches, because in history, women who were deemed to be witches were generally women who went against the norm (spoke their mind, looked or acted differently, etc)… some of them were proto-feminists! Last year I use a palette of limited colors, but this year I am going to go back to the traditional black and white to keep the parameters simple. You will also notice that I added a few days that say “take a break” – I am going to use these days to catch up if I need or just take a break (because it is healthy), but they can be used to add in other witches you like or do other lists. if you decide to join use the hashtag #witchesarewe2018 in addition to the standard inktober tags because I want to see your witches! 🖤🧙‍♀️🕷🔮✨ *sidenote: Mary Poppins is never defined as a witch, but she flies and does magic, so I had to include her.

My #inktoberprompts list! Superheroes are really big this year and we got lots of kick-ass women so this #inktober2018 is just about girls power for me!! 💪 Do you like my list? You can use it too! ➡️ Rules ⬅️ 1) Post under the hashtag #inktobersuperwomen so everybody interested can follow ✨ 2) Don't stress yourself if you don't manage to put up one picture every day. 3) Have fun! ✨ P.S.: If you want you can change the version of the character just do it, I just listed those I want to draw. When a source is missing I'm either not sure which one I want to use or it's MCU. #inktober #promptlist #superheroes #marvel #dc #marvelrising #fightlikeagirl #MCU #xmenevolution #xmen #femalesuperheroes #teentitans #youngjustice #justiceleague

  1. Heather!!! You have curated such an awesome list of Inktober prompts! I didn’t know most of these even existed and it’s amazing to see how the community has grown.

    I’ve done a few instagram prompt challenges before and it can get really fun when you mix them together. ;D Which one(s) will you be taking part in?
