Started by illustrator and animator Jake Parker in 2014, Inktober encourages artists, amateurs and professionals alike, to express themselves every day during the month of October. Each day people craft a sketch or drawing based on the day’s creative prompt in their favorite artistic mediums, be they analog or digital.

The official prompt list for Inktober 2021 including days like sour, moon, spark and raven.

Back in 2019 and again in 2020, we created a set of handy Inktober templates for our iPad drawing app, Linea Sketch that outlines the prompts for each of the 31 days in Inktober. The prompt list for 2021 is officially out and we’ve updated these free templates to help Linea users stay organized as they sketch, doodle and draw their way through to the end of the month.

These Inktober 2021 templates are broken out by pages and numbered to contain the prompt for that particular day’s drawing. The templates are great for those who like to have a uniform set of drawings for the entire month or who want to stay tight and focused on their daily creations.

Linea’s Inktober 2021 templates are completely free, easy to set up, and offer a nice way to join in on the inking fun. Speaking of easy, this year we’ve improved the process of importing the templates into Linea Sketch on the iPad. Using the magic of iCloud, users will be able to get up and running with their templates in just a few seconds. If you need a fallback, the manual method of importing each day’s templates still works like a charm.

Lastly, don’t forget to tag your Inktober Twitter and Instagram posts with #LineaSketch – we’ll be re-tweeting and sharing our favorite drawings on Twitter and Instagram. Download those templates and charge those Apple Pencils, October will be here before you know it!
