Once again, the pen ink calls, inviting one and all to participate.
That's right, it's Inktober time, and the prompts are flying thick and furious.
Lessee; I've got seven prompt lists handy, and if anyone's got more, feel free to post 'em.
... I got two of these from Twitter, the rest from either googling or following links.
The general rule from the Official Prompt List is 'pen and ink, one drawing a day', but I am certainly not holding anybody to that if they don't feel like they can do it.
I also bravely ignore the 'pen and ink' rule, but I don't necessarily suggest my slapdash 'pick something from a list and go after it with whatever media amuses me' method, either...
Last year quite a few of us had a some fun doing this Inktober event. The idea is to draw something each day, inspired by a list of words; there is a word for each day.
This was The thread from Last Year:
There are official rules. We broke most of them. There is more than one person making lists (apart from the guy that started it 11 years back), the lists have different themes…. Last year anything that could leave a mark on paper counted as Ink, some people found ways to combine words from multiple lists, it was fair game to jump from one list to another and back, some only ever posted their pieces here but not on fb, twitler, instychat, (or any of the popular social media pages), skipping days was a thing, gradually catching up was a thing, using two prompt words in one drawing to count-as-2-days was a thing…
THE ONLY REAL RULE WAS TO HAVE SOME FUN WITH IT
I have stumbled on three other lists in addition to the original Inktober2020 list. Images of them all follow. I will cheerfully add some others if someone suggests any.
InktoberLite2020: One possibility if One-A-Day just seems too much, too fast, is to do one every 48 hours. We have here four lists, that yields 2 words per list for a total of 8 word choices, from 2 days. Pick one word (out of 8) for a drawing to be completed sometime on Oct 1st or 2nd. Rinse repeat for 3rd-4th, 5th-6th, and so on.
NB: Rolling 5D6 will mostly result in a lot of Owlbears and Beholders and Bulettes...no idea how you’d roll choices 1-5 (blame whoever did the graphic #totalartmajor #notagamer).

We want to introduce you to Iván Sánchez, aka “Blocsanchez”, one of the members of HeraModels. We are thrilled to share with you his first sketchbook “Wasteland”. Within the last year, Iván has been working in the content of this book what wasn't easy to combine with his daily work of miniature concept artist in our small study. Iván is very passionate about traditional drawing, that is the reason why every design in this book is a pencil sketch except for the cover that is digital.
With this and our future projects, our objective is to create an editorial line of fantastic art. We decided we didn't want a typical sketchbook, collecting drawings from forgotten notebooks where you can find all types of characters; we wanted to make something personal and with an argumental line.
Then, after a lot of thinking, we decided to make a book collection of different races. “Wastelands” is the first chapter of the collection and embodies illustrations and sketches of barbaric warriors of the barren lands.
Original Art of "Wastelands" example for pledges #5 & #6 The original book contains 48 pages but with your help we hope this number keeps increasing. We have selected the best designs with more than 50 characters and we hope all of them can be published in the book. We want the book to be handy and user friendly that is why its size is 17x24cm (6,7”x9,5”). Through the campaign, we will unlock different rewards that will make possible to increase the number of pages of this book and will vive you the possibility to get exclusive products only in Kickstarters. In this campaign, you´ll not only get our sketchbook “Wastelands”, it will be possible to choose the option to get an original sketch made by Ivan inside your book or to get one of the original illustrations printed on it. Later we will explain the campaign more widely.
Original Sketch example for pledges #3 & #4 Later on we will explain every detail of the content in each pledge to make sure that you get what you really want. Besides, while the campaign goes on and we unlock other products we will update the content of each pledge.
For those who have chosen pledge #5 or #6 you could choose between one of the following original illustrations, you just need to send us an email echen you make the reservation with the number of the illustration that you prefer. You can see the images in a bigger size in our website .

now live on KS https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1388589874/modcube-part-tokens-part-dice-fully-modular
the ModCube is a gaming aid which enables you to keep 6 common gaming tokens on a single cube, and quickly rotate between these tokens. Token designs are made to be compatible with the most popular sci-fi wargames, starting with Dogfight and Vehicle Damage cubes (note the cubes shown are 3d printed prototypes)
You can see a few more on the website and facebook page:
Molding of the ModCube is being done in China, with first production samples expected in April. All lasercut acrylic panels will be produced in the USA, enabling us to quickly put out new releases as games update and change!
RiTides will be showing off the ModCube at AdeptiCon with the help of a few other members of Dakka. Come and check out the booth if you are attending, He will also be unveiling one more new ModCube design before AdeptiCon - a cube compatible with Infinity!
