Inktober Portrait Challenge
🎨 What's Happening?
Every single day of October, we’ll hone in on a specific skill related to portrait drawing. If you joined us last year, you’ll find the format familiar but with a few fresh challenges to keep you on your toes. You’ll build your skills step by step as you ride the energy of a community of artists all committed to developing their craft.
✨ why is this Challenge special?
- It is community-based
You get access to a dedicated Discord server.
- It is focused on skill acquisition
You get prompts designed to help you learn.
- We do daily drawing sessions (Mon—Fri)
Stay motivated, ask questions, and meet other artists.
We will share daily drawing prompts about master studies, head construction, facial features, creative mark-making, notan value studies and more. Post your daily drawings on Discord where you can ask questions and support everyone else’s progress as well.
😅 "Do I need to draw every day?"
This challenge is meant to be fun. Anyone can participate at their individual level of commitment. It might be helpful to set a goal for yourself. For example, “post daily” or “post every other day”, or “post once a week”. Whatever you decide, just be consistent with it. Inktober is about growing and improving and forming positive habits, so the more consistent you are, the more you will benefit.
🏠 Weekly Community calls
In 2022 we hosted weekly calls each Saturday for everyone that participated in the portrait challenge. You can watch the recordings below.
