New Inktober for 2017!

I was asked a lot if I could make a new list of art prompts for October this year! Since last year was so much fun, I’ve decided to give it another try at making a new list! Hope you enjoy!! (I’ll be adding the other days soon! Just wanted to get it started so you guys knew what to draw for tomorrow lol)

Day 1: (Since this seemed to be a great way to kick it off last year) Draw yourself on Sept. 30th vs. yourself on Oct. 1st!

Day 2: A Netflix original show doing a crossover special with another Netflix original show (Bonus points if it’s a holiday special!)

Day 3: A Disney princess (or any Disney female protagonist) reimagined as a traditional Halloween monster.

Day 4: A traditional Halloween monster in a lovely Disney princess-like gown that matches their aesthetic.

Day 5: Your favorite Fall/Halloween treat reimagined as a Pokemon (bonus points if you give the pokemon stats!)

Day 6: Your OTP in Halloween costumes that are designed to go together.

Day 7: The Marvel/DC Universe characters if they were optional playable characters in Mario Kart.

Day 8: A character from your favorite cartoon/television show/movie and summoning their Patronus.

Day 9: Take a song title that’s not meant to be scary, imagine it to be the title of a new horror movie. Draw the poster art for that new horror movie.

Day 10: Use an old picture of yourself in a previous Halloween costume as a reference, and recreate it as ornately and imaginative as you remember feeling while wearing it!

Day 11: A modern AAA video game (Uncharted, Gears of War, etc.) reimagined as an old 8- or 16-bit video game! [This was a suggestion from Joan!]

Day 12: Your favorite scary movie/television show/video game/anime/whatever… but they’re cats. [This was a suggestion from Talyn haha]

Day 13: A character or characters from one musical that has/have been cast in another musical that’s totally different.

Day 14: What exactly DOES the Monster Mash look like??

Day 15: What characters from different shows would be the BEST zombie-fighting team??

Day 16: There’s a certain ethereal feeling that comes from Fall. Using colors, imagery, and whatever else you may deem necessary, try to depict that emotion.

Day 17: Think of one really good/funny/happy memory from this year or sometime recently that you’d like to illustrate and accompany with explanation. I think we can always use more positive/light stories!

Day 18: Because I’ve been asked to do something specific to my videos, what would the Sanders Sides go as for Halloween??

Day 19: Use some element of Halloween (decoration/candy/monster/etc) as the inspiration for a new species of flower. Draw that flower or a bouquet of those flowers.

Day 20: This one will be quite a challenge, but I’m interested to see what you can do!! Depict a Halloween/Fall-themed/whatever-show-you-like landscape or collection of items, that, when seen from afar, come together to form another object. If this is confusing, use this image as an example: https://goo.gl/images/CmyRTZ

Day 21: Take a recent cartoon/animation and draw it in the form of old-timey animation!

Day 22: Draw any group or family from television/film (or your own family!) as if they were The Addams Family.

Day 23: The kids from Stranger Things and the kids from It having the most epic crossover special.

Day 24: Draw your house if it was suddenly transformed into the most epic haunted house ever!

Day 25: Use the title of a scary movie and reimagine it as the title of a comedy or romance film. Draw the poster art for that film!

Day 26: Another suggestion from Joan (so blame them lol) but… draw the skeleton of something that doesn’t necessarily HAVE a skeleton lol

Day 27: Use a dream/nightmare you’ve had as the basis to cover art of a mystery/horror novel

Day 28: What if Jack Skellington went down one of the other holiday doors instead??

Day 29: This was a popular one last year, so I wanna bring it back! Draw a cartoon character or characters in the style of another cartoon series or movie!

Day 30: Choose a Greek or Roman mythological god(s) and imagine if they were to disguise themselves as a typical human for Halloween. What might their costume(s) be?

Day 31: It’s Halloween!! But for this prompt, let’s imagine it’s the day AFTER Halloween! Choose a character or characters from any cartoon/book/movie/etc, and imagine what kind of wild night they had on Halloween, and then illustrate their day after (the candy haul, the wild party they’re recovering from, the misadventure they found themselves on the night before, etc.)

You guys have been making AMAZING pieces of art and I encourage anyone to check out the TSInktober tag to see ALL the awesome artwork!!

@milkteamiku‘s Seven Days fic forever changed my life. Literally one of the best writers ever so check out their stuff. 

Droughtlander Art Challenge
Week 28 - Voyager

Months ago, when a September premiere was first announced, I challenged myself to make one new Outlander painting a week until the premiere. Now we’re less than a week away! As this is my last #droughtlander piece I want to take the time to say THANK YOU to all you wonderful individuals. I’ve been lucky to have met so many incredibly talented and kind friends over the past months, and you’ve all helped make Droughtlander pass so quickly!

To finish, here’s my concept of a S3 poster in the style of S1. Several people mentioned this would be cool to see, and I’ve finally gotten around to trying it :)

Enjoy the new season and thank you all for an amazing year filled with creativity and inspiration!

Your life is right now. It’s not later. It’s not in that time of retirement. It’s not when the lover gets here. It’s not when you’ve moved into the new house. It’s not when you get the better job. Your life is right now. It will always be right now. You might as well decide to start enjoying your life right now, because it’s not ever going to get better than right now—until it gets better right now. the way you’re responding emotionally to your life right now, is the basis of what is to come.

Day 27: Use a dream/nightmare you’ve had as the basis to cover art of a mystery/horror novel

Okay, so to this day this is the most vivid dream I’ve ever had. I have a friend whose last name is Campbell. When we were in 6th grade I dreamt that she was chasing me all around our middle school campus trying to make me into soup. Ironically, in real life, she doesn’t even like soup. But yeah good god I don’t think I’ll ever forget that dream for as long as I live.
