Inktober Day 4, the prompt is "hook". On a bright Sunday, we're here to untangle the mystery of "How to paint a Dragon". It's recommended to choose the set of colors you want to paint it with and already have them mixed on the mixing palette. It will help with being consistent in this loop. Try finding the best-suited color for your Dragon like we have and not let's get started. Head to the link now
Inktober Day 5, the prompt is "raven". This one's one of the favourite from the set as realistic as it gets, it's also the one that gives a majestic feel. A beautiful raven, with its feathers wrapped around itself and ready to show the world of magic to you. Here going by the classical method, we have painted the raven black. You're allowed to let your creativity bring out the best of you and paint it with the color you find best suited. Check out the complete tutorial ok our YouTube channel
It's day 3 of Inktober, the prompt is "vessel". This is one, in particular, that can look too much to take in, especially for a beginner. We are breaking down each step on how to break the process into easy steps and make it fun. Pro tip - Covering the paper with water helps the paint spread easily. That's just the beginning one, we got more. Watch the video to know more.

Inktober Day 7 prompt is "fan". This one is our favorite. With so many subjects to focus on it can get diverting. Jumping from one subject to another and eventually messing it up. We're going to focus equally on the subjects and the background and make it look as vibrant as possible. This will help you keep the painting neat and tidy. Check out the link for complete video.
A great end to the first week of Inktober. Hope you guys had an amazing time because there are more interesting prompts coming up. Day 9 prompt "pressure". Here we have an identical subject. We chose to paint them in different colors. You can choose to go for similar colors.
Inktober day 8 prompt: "watch". Many of us would have the first instinct to run towards the drawer and pick out our favorite watch, the artist here has a different take on it. We're using lots of metallic colors for the subject to make it shine against the black background. From picking the brightest color for the subject to muted colors for the background objects, you'll get a detailed description of how to go about it. Watch the complete video on our Youtube channel.
Day 10 prompt "pick" has a bird imaged while picking up a round object with its long, sleek beak from a tree branch. You'll find it pictured in front of the sun. This type of sight is usually an astounding one to look at. We try to do the same with this painting. We have one subject here that should be focused on but we had made it even more engaging by involving every color that we could to make it look as happy to look as you'll be while painting.
Day 11th prompt "sour" has an image of a mischievous wolf drinking lemonade or so we assume. As interesting as it sounds, we have made it interesting to look at too. Going fully with the vibe, we have opted for summery colors like red, yellow, and green. You can choose the colors as per your vibe and mood because there's no right or wrong in art.
Inktober day 13 prompt is "roof" takes us back to the good old days. Rather an organic roof, we'd say. We have taken some references from the web to get started with this so feel free to do so yourself. Here we have combined the traditional green color with blue and green and for the Tiger standard orange with a little touch of yellow at points where needed. End this mad combination of colors with some splatters. Voila! We're all done. Watch the complete video in the link below
Day 14 of Inktober brings a little teen drama to the plate with its scary and surreal idea. Looks like this time our astronaut alien has landed on Mars to hunt down some villains. We'll start with painting the giant Tic, from the shell coming to the legs. The legs are overlapped so be careful to leave a gap between them. Paint the whole postcard with exceptional colors that make it look scary and evil. Head to the video in the link
Inktober day 12 prompt "stuck" brings back our astronaut alien from the prompt "watch". We're again using metallic colors for our astronaut alien only keeping it a little simpler this time. Differentiating the tentacles from the astronaut suit, we have given them distinguish colors. The suit is the focus and is painted with metallic colors. On the other hand, keeping the background simple and easy, we have a mixture of yellow, green, and blue. Watch the complete video on our YouTube channel
Inktober day 15 prompt, follows a soldier mouse and headed out in the battle while his partner looks at him with her loving eyes and awaits his return. Start painting with the armor and then jump on to the other parts. The basic idea is to keep the armor dark color and the rest parts bright differentiating the body with the armor. Check out the video in the link.
Day 17 prompt brings a tired or rather a lost soldier to us. Flatly laying "splat" on the mud floor with his sorrowful eyes. We'll paint the floor dark in color and so to contrast it painting the armor in a bright color, unlike our previous video where we painted the armor in dark shade.
In the day 16 prompt, we have a cute little adventurer here, wandering in the woods with a "compass" in one hand and fire in another. It's your sign to get out of your couch and experience some new adventure. The subject has a cluster of things on his belt which can be confusing and lead to clumsy work and so we'll add the first wash to the body parts of the subject. It's important to distinguish these small objects from subject to make the painting more detailed.
For today's prompt, we have a pretty picture-perfect scene. Two moons are opposite and connected to each other. Imagine yourselves as the lucky cat on the moon, staring at its beautiful face. For our main subjects, the moons, we'll use two different colors that balance each other out. In this case, Scarlet red and Shallow blue. After this first step, jump on to other background elements. Choose muted colors for them. Click on the link to watch the complete video.
On day 18 of Inktober, we're thrown at the prompt "loop". Wrap your mind around it for a few seconds, this one's a little intricately made. Can get intimidating at first but we are here, decoding the secret of how to get started with it, step by step.
Inktober day 21 brings fuzziness to our doors. As fuzzy as it sounds, the artist has done a great job at making it beautifully fuzzy. Big honey bees hovering on flowers probably sucking the sweetness out of them. Keeping the actual colors in mind, we are adding a touch of our own in the whole scene. Envisioning the colors is important. Make sure you don't use only darker or only lighter shades. Play around with them and try out new things. Let's start now.
Inktober day 22 prompt is "open". The artist has put it out in an interesting manner and comparatively an easy one to paint as it holds one subject to focus on. We're taking you to step by step on where and how to start the painting. The only thing you need to be careful of while painting is to follow the lines of the sketch going along.
Day 20 brings a very cutesy sketch in front of us. A rather friendly snake, plants, and butterflies. Since we have some patchwork on the body of the snake, we are going to have a mix of blue and gold splashed over it. Feel free to experiment with colors and let your creativity out. Experiment with dark and light shades combination.
