Inktober 2021, prompts, pictures and the usual shenanigans.


Recommended Posts

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... ^_^

Was just coming to see if this was posted. 💜 Thank you @Sylverthorne for collating all the goodness into one place! I wasn't even aware of such a thing before last year; the spawn and I had a great time with the daily inspiration to draw. (Although, since school's back to in-person, she may prefer the less-than-daily option.)

Watch this space for an




list. (Not to be confused with #Reaptober, which is officially being used by Reaper, and which has to do with painting figures.)


I’ve been working on it, I have worked out a way to roll 4d10 to randomly choose a model from the online store. 




That raw roll translates to SKU 14714, which hopefully exists. Stay tuned. 

Edit: but it doesn’t. Looks like the numerically closest number is 14614.


Edit 2: Renamed it INK RANDOMLY; INK OFTEN. Between my random diceroll producing lots of invalid results and the kludge factor of trying to create it, and capture the graphic on my phone,  I only have about a week’s worth. But it is enough to start with. 

See next post for the image. 

There are three ways to use the IRIO Reaper Figures list. [1] Draw something inspired by the description without looking up the number, [2] lookup the number then  try to draw that figure as if it is sitting for a portrait, or [3] third use any of the other tags on the figure as prompt words.

Cool! Incidentally, for anyone else who can't get the search function to recognise an SKU, that first one is Erebus Nalas. Kind of a dead ringer for the Sorcerer in the Sorcerer's Apprentice, if you don't look too closely. >.>




After an argument with Corel, MS paint and.. all of that stuff, I finally got this uploaded:



Prompts: Familiar, Swift

Media: Ink! Markers, specifically, on .. paper. No, I don't know what kind.

Today's Rock Troll is the Bones Black promo troll, in all his irregularly faceted glory.

(Yes, damnit, I am going to look all of them up. I'm curious).


Anyway, today I actually went for the official prompt list. 



Day 3, Quality Assurance

Prompts: Vessel, Honey

Ink on paper (Copics, some abuse of microns). 


Have I mentioned recently that you can BLEND copics? You can blend copics. 

Does anyone still cover the tops of their honey jars with fabric? @Pegazus? Anybody?

Today's Mini is Ariel the dryad. I'm late...


Inktober, day 4. Gaze Upon My Masterpiece!



Prompts: Knot, Bread, Critter

Watercolour! on 140lb Hot Press.


Don't look at me like that, I'm sure you've all had the urge to run around the house with a freshly baked loaf yelling at people to admire it. 

Ideally, before the starving horde decends and devours said loaf, dripping with butter and honey or jam.

Oh, hey! It's the crazy-eyed Owlbear today. 


I had a Judgy Kitty overseeing my art today; Enigma elected to be parked in the cavenest while I worked.

Inktober, Day 5. Are You Sure About This?



Prompts: Raven, Mouse, Arcana, Lavender

Media: Pens (Sakuras, sharpies, copics, whatever was in the bin..), on 100lb Bristol.


I... don't know what's going on here, and, honestly, I don't think I want to. If a bunch of squirrels blow up like furry little balloons, I had nothing to do with it....

Yesterday's Ink Often mini was Lathula, Female Barbarian; who promptly went into my wishlist.

Today's is the Bones Clay Golem.


Um. If you're arachnophobic, maybe don't actually click the spoiler to look at the picture. >.>


Inktober, day 7. This Is As Prone As I Get.






Prompts: Living Curiousities, Prone

Media: Watercolour and ink on 140lb hot press


In the long-ago before times, when I was a lot younger and a lot more prone to saying things like,  'well, if they're capable of thinking for ten cents, they're not automatically going to be EVIL just because this book says so!' I created a lot of characters that GMs flat out refused to touch. Xanannae here is one of those characters.

Surprising no one, there are about a million Hooded Rogues in Reaper's catalogue. It's like none of them want to be recognised or something!

The one on the list though, is Tierce, Male Rogue.   


Inktober: Day 8. No, It's MY Bag.



Prompts: Watch, Bag of Holding, Cozy.


The concept of the Familiar Pocket is one I really like for small familiars. But I can see a larger one forgetting they're not that small anymore, too .... >.>
