So I’ve decided to do my own illustration prompts list in October. This idea isn’t new, of course. Many (including myself) have done Inktober over the years, and some have decided to create their own list of prompts.
I liked the idea and built out my own list of prompts.
I split the list up into a few categories:
- Creatures / Monsters
and I split those categories up into weeks. The first week in October is only three days long, so that’s where I put the maps. From there, I mixed things up so that I would ‘eat that frog’ by putting the locations and items in the middle and before I get the ‘treat’ of drawing the heroes.
The beauty of this is that I’ll be building out Aerith for my own enjoyment / experience, and who knows? Maybe it will become a thing somewhere down the road. 🙂
I’ll be posting my progress on this Twitter thread, or here on the site with a bit more information / behind the scenes.
One last note: if any of you decide to join in, please let me know and use the hashtag #FWBO (Fantasy World Building in October). I’d love to see what you create!
