ARTOBER - MAGIQverse Edition
Artober was inspired by Inktober, but this challenge is more lax. The point of Artober is to get you to be creative every day. Spend five minutes on a sketch, or snap a quick photo on your cell phone, or tap out a few sentences in between classes. It is a flexible, quick act to get you in the daily habit. The challenge lasts from October 1st to October 31.
When I think about my own habits, I spend a lot of time mindlessly scrolling on Instagram, browsing Twitter, or sitting around waiting until my next thing comes up. And then I come home and I’m tired, I have homework, and it feels like there’s no time to do art for myself and not just my classes. I want to do this challenge to train myself to slip in those extra minutes of creativity, not just on the weekends but on weekdays too. If any of this sounds similar to you, then maybe we can all work together to be more creative!
Questions and Answers
How much time do I need to spend on these?
As little or as much time as you want. It could be typing a paragraph story or doodling a rough sketch while you're waiting for your lecture to start. If you want to spend more time and do a polished piece, that's cool too. Go where the prompt takes you.
What sorts of media are allowed?
Anything and everything. You can write, draw, paint, photograph, make photoshop graphics, sew, papercraft, collage, whatever. As long as it's creative, it's cool.
What if I miss a day?
I encourage everyone to try to post every day if you can, even if it's something small and simple. That said, no one will get out their judgement spoons if you miss a day.
What if I don't like the prompt?
Feel free to switch out the prompt for something else, or do whatever you like! The prompts are here to help inspire, not to stifle your creativity.
What do I do with my finished products?
You can post them in this thread or on Discord, whatever is more comfortable for you. But mention it's for Artober if you don't mind? Feel free to post them on any social media, but it's not a requirement.
