Inktober 2018 Prompts - Magic & Fantasy

Welcome to the first in a series of posts featuring prompts for Inktober! 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.

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 ๐Ÿ™‚

Below is the official Inktober 2018 prompt list:

 

 

Magic & Fantasy Prompts

There are so many prompts I have had to split them into categories and then into weekly posts. For the first set of prompts I have gathered everything related to magic and fantasy together for you. Here you will find spells, magic, fairytales, knights, elves and much more. Darker magical themes will be included in next weeks horror and supernatural theme.
