what's OCtober?
a yearly event focusing on original characters! you post stuff about them on social media based on daily prompts

did you invent OCtober?
nope, it's a spin-off of inktober ... i just make my own list :) it's called 'bweirdoctober' to differentiate the tag from other people's oc-tober lists

do i have to draw EVERY DAY?
no! you are allowed (encouraged even!) to skip as many days as you want in my events! burnout does not make u a better artist, it just makes u tired!

do i have to DRAW?
nope! you can do it as writing/tweets/posts instead if you want! or re-posting older art that fits the theme is ok too!

can i prepare my art early?
yep! go nuts! so long as you wait to post it on the correct day in october

what's the tag?
#bweirdoctober for my specific prompt list! #oc_tober for general


1. no NSFW art in the tag please! (this is an all-ages event)
2. no burning yourself out! skip days if you get tired!
3. like/retweet/comment on art in the tag as often as you can ... talk to other artists and make friends!
