★ SPECIAL prompt guidelines

🎃CHALLENGE: 1 prompt a day, every day, no repeats!

However, you don't have to do it this way if you don't want to!
✦ You are allowed to do the prompts in any order, on any day, and can do the same prompts multiple times and on different characters. You can exceed 30 entries!

This prompt closes 1 week after october ends to allow for extra time to finish up last minute entries.

✦ Please mention the prompt(s) used in your submission in the comments!

✦ You can stylize your character and draw them in different 'non-canon' ways to suit the prompt. Ex: skeletal/exposed bone for the bone prompt, in a plush form for the doll prompt, etc. If they are being drawn in ways that are consistently skirting guidelines over multiple submissions they the entry may be sent back!

  • You can submit up to 8 promts together in a single day (same or different prompts)
  • You will get credit for each individual prompt on the batch submission.
    • EX: if you group 3 together, you get a payout for 3, thats x15 Inkdrops!

    • You can submit multiple prompts on a single file as long as they are at least loosely separate drawings/panels and each meet min requirements
    • MAX of 8 prompts on 1 submission

    • You can group prompts to create a longer written piece or submit multiple small ones together
    • MAX of 8 prompts on 1 submission = MAX 2000 words in one submission.
    • You don't have to write precisely 250 about each prompt on a batch submission! As long as each one you use is incorporated somewhere you're good. It is still 250 words per x5 inkdrops!
    • You can write the max about single prompts too if you prefer!

You may do submissions with body horror, blood, horror elements, and light gore/injury. Depictions of heavy gore/large open realistic wounds are not allowed! Please indicate any content warnings for blood, gore, injury, or eyestrain/flashing in the comments section of your submission

And reminder that this prompt will not be the only source of the inkdrop currency!

Your submission will be sent back if there are any issues! If you'd like us to make payout corrections and approve without sending back (even if the payout is less) please mention in the comments section.
