Art Prompts – Discord Bot

A header for the Discord version of the Art Prompts Android app. With this bot, members can get a random drawing prompt from a database of over 650 original, unique prompts. There's also an option to choose between six different categories - Animals, People, Places, Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Horror, each of which contains over 100 prompts.

Are you the owner or an admin of an art-related Discord server? If so, I’d love to offer you my Art Prompts Discord bot to add to your server.

With the bot, your members will be able to access over 650 unique, original art prompts by typing a single command,  !artprompt.

Your members will also be able to choose from six different categories of prompts, including AnimalsPeople, Places, Fantasy, Sci-fi, and Horror, by simply adding the name of the category after the command. For example, typing !artprompt horror would give you one of the 100+ horror prompts the bot can access.

The Art Prompts Discord bot, of course, runs 24/7, with a short period of time reserved for updates every once in a while (at a maximum of a few minutes every week).


The bot features six main commands:

  • !artprompt will give you a randomly selected prompt from the whole pool of 650+ prompts.
  • !artprompt animals people places fantasy sci-fi horror will give you a randomly selected prompt from the selected category.
  • !artprompt colors will send 3 – 5 randomly chosen colors to be used for a drawing.
  • !artprompt emoji will send 3 randomly chosen emojis to inspire you.
  • !artprompts count will say the current number of prompts the bot has access to (new ones are added every week).
  • !artprompts or !aphelp will give you the command list.

Links for Other Projects

To support the further development of Art Prompts, every prompt given by the bot has a 3% chance of linking to one of the other Art Prompts projects: a Google Play page with the Art Prompts app, the Art Prompts Patreon page, this page, a page about the WIP books, about our daily newsletter, about our daily-posting Twitter account, or the Art Prompts web app.

In my testing, I’ve found that with the chance of 3%, the link almost never comes up. However, if you think it’s happening too often for you, please shoot me a message at, and I will lower the chance.


Here are some examples of the Art Prompts Discord bot in use. Before the pictures is a video of the bot in use. Following that are three screenshots of the bot. In the first one, the bot sends a prompt as a response to the !artprompt command. This is a prompt randomly picked from the whole database of 650+ prompts.

The second example shows the bot’s list of commands.

In the last one, you can see how the bot can send a prompt from a specific category.

Get the Bot

If you like what you have seen here, please don’t hesitate to add this bot to your server. Simply use this link, or click on the image at the top of this page, choose a server to add the bot to, and agree to give the bot permission to write and read messages from the chats he has access to (don’t worry, he’s reading the chat just to scan for his commands, and he won’t write anything unless he is specifically asked to via the command).

If you have any problems with the bot, or any suggestions, feel free to write me an email to and I will do my best to respond ASAP.

To find out more about the bot’s development, you can check out the changelog, which details every version of the bot.

You can also join the Art Prompts Discord server, which is a growing community of artist using the bot and the other AP projects to inspire their drawings.

Thank you for reading this far, and the best of luck with your server, and your art journey!


I invited the bot and it doesn’t react to any commands?

Make sure you have given the bot it’s appropriate permissions – it needs to be able to read messages, and write messages.

How did you make the bot?

I made the bot using the JavaScript language, and the discord.js-light library. More info about the development can be found in the changelog.
