Coztober 2022: October Art Challenge Features

Updated: Nov 1

There will be growth where you try-- so always try your best. Being in a creative field can drive you to a corner when it comes to concepts and as you know-- creative blocks are challenging to overcome. But when you do, you come back with more knowledge and strength to carry on. One of the ways you can fight creative blocks is to join in art challenges that feel right for you.


The Coztober art challenge is an art prompt list that I created to encourage artists (including myself) to create fun unique illustrations with the theme "just bCOZ" (pun intended).


As promised, I would like to feature the Coztober entries for October 2022! I will update this blog until the completion of all the prompts.


Note: Each artwork is linked to their respective artists! Feel free to visit their pages.

Day 16: Rest Day


Okay, now-- we really do need to chill. Art challenges may be created to push your creativity to make art outside of your comfort zone. But keep in mind that pushing yourself to the point of burn out is never good regardless if you do art as a hobbyist or as a freelance illustrator.


Day 17-18: Fish on Land


You can really see the distinct art style for each entry in today's prompt!


Featured Artists:

That's a Wrap


I had so much fun creating the Coztober drawing challenge, and I am happy about finishing it along with some friends and fellow artists. I am grateful for the support from everyone who liked and shared our entries! This is the first of the many art challenges that I will create. I hope to see you all again for next year's Coztober art challenge!
