October is almost here, and in the art world that only means one thing: INKTOBER

This year, we want to start a contest!

Inktober backstory:

Tips and Tricks:

Though Inktober shares a list of prompts you can use for the 31 drawings, they are only just a list of words that you can draw inspiration from. Choosing a theme that would really help in keeping you inspired throughout the challenge. For example you can decide on using cats as a theme and draw poisonous cats for the first day, and tranquil ones for the second and so on! Or you can have more fun with this and create a certain character responding to the prompt throughout the month. Or you can stick to inanimate things if you prefer. 

Possibilities are infinite so, let’s go and it’s time to get creative!

To qualify you need to follow artmejo on instagram and facebook and keep all images on your feed in one place either on instagram highlights, posts, or facebook image album.

Any missing tags and images will automatically disqualify participants.
