Today’s Inktober 2020 prompt word is DUNE. Defined as…
“A mound or ridge of sand or other loose sediment formed by the wind, especially on the sea coast or in a desert.“Dictionary.com
I did think of drawing a sand dune with a large sandworm (and perhaps an even bigger Hedgehog) from the book Dune (though not the hedgehog). However, I can’t picture a dune without thinking of those magnificent ships of the desert, the ubiquitous camel. I’ve gone for a dromedary (one hump) as opposed to a bactrian (two humps), as I have some small experience of the former and precisely none of the latter.
Anyway, here’s what I came up with. I did the usual black & white version, but I am also treating you to a colour version, if you read on.
I had an easy time drawing this one as I didn’t have to scrabble around for the time it usually takes me to draw. My secret? A very dull, hour long online meeting, in which I had very little to say. Noone had their cameras activated so, by the end of the meeting I had the draft drawing and had done 90% of the inking. I could do with a daily meeting of that type… well… daily.
As I said, I also played with the colour. And here’s the result.
I decided to do colour fill only. No shading. Let me know what you think.
Tomorrow’s prompt word is ARMOUR. And, because I have some spare time, I may just start drawing tonight. See you tomorrow.
