OCD and CreativeCoin - #Inktober 2019 Event

Welcome to OCD and CreativeCoin #Inktober 2019 Event!

Recognizing certain key events is a mark of a thriving platform and here at OCD/CreativeCoin, we are excited to encourage, promote, and reward quality engagements! From year to year, the annual event known as #Inktober has grown to be a global phenomenon and with it, artists from all over the world come together for an entire month of October to create. In turn, this creates a surge of energy, of excitement, and of activities across all the social media platforms.

We would like Steemit’s visibility to rise through this event by encouraging participation and cross-posting of contents through artists’ external blogs.


What is Inktober?

Simply put, it is a challenge to all artists to draw every day for 31 days in the month of October. The drawing should include Inking element but both traditional and digital medias are welcomed. Inktober started in 2016 and it has continued to gain momentum year on year.

This is the official site: http://inktober.com

There is a list of ‘prompts’ that is released every year from the official site. For this particular event, OCD/CreativeCoin will only accepts artworks done with the official prompts.

For 2019, this is the list:

The Event – Daily Rewards !

To participate:

  1. Create drawings using the daily prompts
  2. Post your inktober piece daily on Steemit (or your preferred front-ends)
  3. If you can include the Day number and Prompt word somewhere in your title, that’d be great!
  4. Tag it with #inktober, #creativecoin and #oc
  5. That’s it!

OCD/CreativeCoin curators and judges will then browse the platform every day to collect your entries and winners will be announced daily !

But, wait, there’s more!

  • If you choose to also cross post your Steemit post on your external / other social media and link to your Steemit post, you will have a chance to have an even bigger prize!

Just a couple of rules

  • Only original content (OC) with rightful ownership will be eligible to win. Any drawings that are traced, copied or based off an existing drawing piece can join the contest, but will not be picked as winners.
  • All the posts must include at least one (1) picture of the drawing process with the author's Steem username written on a piece of paper. This is to avoid any controversy and polemic regarding authorship, original content issues and any problem regarding abuse of this contest.


For every day's topic, our judges will pick three winers. Those winners will earn a 40% @ocd+trail vote as well as 200 staked CCC (creative coins).

If a winner also crossposted their art on their other social media, then the prize will be a 50% @ocd+trail vote and 250 staked CCC (creative coins).


Meet your judges for the event :D !

  1. @hiddenblade
  2. @derangedvisions
  3. @isaria
  4. @veryspider
  5. @juliakponsford

The final call depends on the judges and there is no room for appealing on their selections. The judge's criteria to pick the winners will be:

  • Creativity and Originality
  • Presentation
  • Clarity of the theme
  • Overall impact

Final Gallery

At the end of the month, we'll have 93 outstanding pieces that will be part of the Steem's Inktober Art Gallery, more information about that in a few days.

All the liquid rewards from every OCD post related to Inktober will be used for a final surprise at the end of the month, more info about that in a few days. All the Steem Power generated from the posts will go for the judging team, OCD won't keep any rewards from the posts.<

Ten percent (10%) of this post rewards will be donated to the Steem DAO.

Goodluck everyone! We wish a creative Inking for all the artists out there!

I am looking forward to seeing all of the amazing work that the community does this month. This is going to be a lot of fun.

03.10.2019 21:14

Hopefully we can reach as many artists on Steem and outside of Steem!

We made a Tweet about it, anyone who retweets it gets a share of my post rewards! More details here

Thanks for supporting the artistis, that participate in #inktober. I just don't know how to add a photo "of the drawing process with the author's Steem username written on a piece of paper", when I do digitally inking. Or is this only for artists using traditional ink?

03.10.2019 22:05

Perhaps then include in your screen your username in one of the layers, take the pic and then remove the layer. Would that suit your process?

04.10.2019 02:29

Thanks, will try that. (Although digitally adding a username is something anybody could potentially do.)

04.10.2019 12:56

Does tatooing this picture give any more weight to the entry? :P

03.10.2019 22:20

Who knows, we'll see what the judges say :P

05.10.2019 15:09

Please remove all of your downvotes from my account.

03.10.2019 23:16

Please don't buy votes and we won't downvote your content.

04.10.2019 02:28

You know what would be a right way to do this is when you go against plankton/minnows paying for bidbots to get a 1 USD upvote, while disregarding the quality of the post?
How about you also go against whales that upvote shitty blog posts in a circle jerk, with payouts of sometimes more than 100 USD!!!! Can you tell me honestly your approach is balanced and positive?

04.10.2019 03:00

Thanks buddy. :)

I really think they should have upvoted your account instead of downvoting it. :(

They don't count the circle jerks because the whales are able to get "organic" upvotes through the jerking process so I think it even becomes legal for them to use bots while peons like us with superior content and accounts get destroyed.

04.10.2019 03:21

We are. Once the bid bots stop selling votes, our next focus will be the voting circles you mention. Please do not lose hope or get discouraged by the downvotes, it's better to get organic engagement and votes from interacting with the community.

04.10.2019 03:29

Hopefully I can get a bid bot running for steemleo.com and you can help send people there instead of just flagging them.

05.10.2019 11:58

Flag for bid bot abuse. @steemflagrewards

04.10.2019 06:42

I didn't use a bidbit.

04.10.2019 11:55

Yeah it was my fault you #cracy #ocd #nazis. Wow! Sorry buddy. :(

I really think you should consider converting your Steem into Leo.

04.10.2019 17:57

I removed my downvote as you did not buy the vote.

05.10.2019 12:15

Thank you.

05.10.2019 12:39

That was my fault you asshole #nazi.

God, go flag my account you desperate loser if you get your rocks off on attacking people.

Did I help you lose like .000001 Steem? How about you delete your tag and I give you a massive extrotion fee payment of .001 steem to console you for all of the pain and suffering I have caused to you and your account. lol

04.10.2019 17:56

@steemflagrewards this was totally unfair. I sent the bot to reward good content.

05.10.2019 11:59

@steemflagrewards this was totally unfair. I sent the bot to reward good content. @hoang77 is guilty of harassment.

05.10.2019 12:00

Don’t see flags from our side.

No bot comment means no official flags from us.

05.10.2019 12:03
Is there anyone that tries to combat abusive downvotes besides me?
05.10.2019 12:43

@steemmflagrewards this was totally unfair! I sent the bot to reward good content.

05.10.2019 12:00

@acidyo I paid for the bot.

05.10.2019 12:44

Seems like it's not "to make Steemit" a better place. @acidyo just also wants to censor out other opinions. He doesn't even leave a comment why he makes a downvote. Meanwhile he upvotes his own blogpost with very average quality to levels none of my blog posts ever went.

05.10.2019 12:57

I think you have a valid point.

@acidyo should probably open his eyes and remove his stupid downvotes and get behind me. I support good leadership. I think he should switch to being a good leader instead of a crappy one. lol I thought some of his post were underpaid although I still might downvote him someday since he unfairly flagged me and you and probably many many others.

To be fair though I think he is probably awesome at coding and forking plans and stuff but I might be the only one on this platform that really actually understands it.

Just because you write the code and draw up plans doesn't mean you are totally an expert on the many many many nuances to the Steemit platform.

I am sure there are still things I have yet to learn.

I even had a shocker yesterday and am still currently surprised by some stuff.

Damn this comment deserve a big bot upvote but whatever. lol

Don't send me on! lol

05.10.2019 13:31

I believe in a decentralized Steemit platform and standing up to thugs like you.

Are you guys obsessed with the trending page or something?

Do you seriously honestly think that a bot deserves to earn more WAY more profit on a post like this than what I earn in almost every single one of my posts?

I don't understanding the bigotry towards authors who think their posts are good and want to promote them. Can you please explain it to me?

Please consider reading my most recent blog posts about how you gestapo Nazis are destroying the Steemit platform? Please don't buy any Leo tokens though. lol I don't think the Leo platform needs any ignorant thugs like you.


Do you thugs even read my awesome posts that make the trending page on the Steemleo platform before your obsessive compulsive disorder or something kicks in and you decide to downvote them? https://www.steemleo.com/trending

I made the trending page on the first day on Steemleo and I think the post did deserve to make it on the trending page.

Could you thugs maybe let people know about Steemleo.com before you help kick them off the Steem blockchain or should I do it myself?

04.10.2019 03:06

Thanks for the upvote. But don't use a bidbot for it. People just get more pissed off about it.

04.10.2019 15:42

Wow! I guess so. These mofos are cray cray. lol

Sorry buddy. I'd offer to use one on your blog post but yeah. Maybe someday when the heat dies down which might be never. lol

04.10.2019 18:00

How is this post worth almost 100 USD? Please explain.

03.10.2019 23:53

Because it is awesome.

04.10.2019 02:29


04.10.2019 17:57

Well, considering the purpose is to engage and reward hundreds across the platform and get them creating new content for the month, ya, that is pretty awesome. Sorry if you don’t think that meets your standards of how cool you feel your posts are, but there are a very large number across this platform that will disagree with you.

04.10.2019 19:27

why always use the same old picture?

First image is more fitting most of the time.

04.10.2019 02:06

The post was posted prior to that image being completed and I guess the thumbnail won’t update.

04.10.2019 02:28

This :)

04.10.2019 03:30

How about doing it for Hactoberfest also, https://hacktoberfest.digitalocean.com?

04.10.2019 06:14

That's a cool event. I'm waiting and excited to see the final gallery.

I'm doing Inktober, but my drawings are pretty crap compared to some of the great artists we have on Steem. I hope to see them get more support. I'm promoting this effort on Twitter and will create accounts for people.

04.10.2019 11:35

Omagowd, I love OCD. So glad to see you flourishing.

04.10.2019 12:10

The hypocrisy.... “we don’t support bots but if we use them it’s ok”

04.10.2019 14:41

Yeah, it's so much easier to downvote than to create and promote. Hypocrite curators on a power trip.

06.10.2019 21:57

Exited to see all the great work that will come from this. I am concentrating another challenge but might do a few of these as well:)

04.10.2019 15:22

for @ocd

04.10.2019 15:51

Command accepted!

04.10.2019 16:01

View or trade BEER.

Hey @ocd, here is a little bit of BEER for you. Enjoy it!

04.10.2019 16:00

This sounds like a fun contest to stretch the imaginations. 😊

05.10.2019 00:52

@ocd, I know it's specifically for the Drawing Niche. But i am curious to ask, can i post 31 poetry pieces in which there will be mention of Ink?

I want to appreciate these kind of initiatives which encourages Art Ecosystem.

Keep up the good work team and stay blessed.

You can do it of course, but since the contest is about drawing/painting unfortunately you can't win, but feel free to join!

05.10.2019 15:09

Thank you so much for your kind response team. I am looking forward to it. Stay blessed team.

@ocd - this is a great creative contest and I'd love to get back to trying some artwork and this contest sounds like a great way to inspire me. However, I just saw it today and the contest rules say you must do an entry for every day. So my question - can I now do a separate post for each of the days so far, or do you have to actually make 1 post every day of the month?

06.10.2019 16:51

You don't need to post each day. Just create an entry for the days that you are able to participate. We have judged a lot of the previous days already and will be announcing winners for them soon. You can still post previous days if you want to though, but staying current on the days would be the best option as the contest moves forward.

06.10.2019 17:44

@derangedvisions - thanks for your prompt reply and explanation. That makes perfect sense, and I hope to get some drawing done and some posts made for this contest just for the fun of it and getting back into being a little creative in other ways than just writing.

06.10.2019 17:56

Greetings, @ocd. Here's my first entry to this contest. Thanks for promoting art and creativity

06.10.2019 17:04

Thanks for the post.
