This drawing prompt generator is designed to help you unleash your creativity. Simply pick a topic and it will show you a custom drawing prompt to help get you going. If that drawing prompt doesn't do it for you, hit regenerate and you'll see another one.

We generate the drawing prompts from a collection of drawing ideas. The drawing prompts generator actually works as a two step process. First, it randomly selects a topic from a list of relevant drawing prompts. Then it does a second pass to generate the next level of the drawing idea, working out the details of the character or scene you want to draw.

We have a wide variety of drawing prompts, including animals, people, places, and things. The drawing prompt generator can also generate dramatic scenes or fantasy settings. There are a couple of prompts marked "kids" - these generate easy drawing prompts for kids. And as always, if you don't like the drawing idea, hit the topic button again and the generator will create another prompt for you.
