200+ drawing prompts for when you don’t know what to draw

Stuck for inspiration?

Sometimes it can be tough deciding what to draw, especially when you’re just starting out. The blank page phobia is a real thing. So, I’ve compiled a massive list just for you. The list is broken down into categories to help you find something you like, but you could try drawing something you wouldn’t normally pick to really grow your skills. These prompts are just a guide, interpret them in any way you want.

You can use these prompts in any medium, it doesn’t just have to be sketching. They’d work great as daily watercolour or ink drawing prompts too!

I’ve also included a 30-day challenge! I’ll be doing this myself over the next month. If you do the challenge or any of the prompts, share them on Instagram with me I’d love to see them. Don’t have Insta? Pin them and tag me or email me, I’d love to hear from you.
