October was Inktober!


Artists from all over the world have been participating in this drawing challenge since its inception in 2009 by Jake Parker.  Open to everyone using traditional or digital tools and with incredibly simple rules (Make a drawing in ink, Post it, Hashtag it, and Repeat), it has filled October will wonderfully inspired creations guided by a unique annual Inktober prompts list.

We’re always looking for great samples of work created in SketchBook, but for this month, it’s not a surprise that most of our favorites were created for the Inktober challenge, but there are still a few outstanding non-Inktober pieces that made it our October list.  Check our all our staff picks below!


If you want to make it into our Staff Picks in future months, just keep drawing and simply tag #sketchbookapp or #sketchbookpro when you post on social media to help us discover your work.
