Inktober – Day 13 – Dune

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.

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.

Inktober – Day 13 – Dune

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.

Colour Camel (That’s fun to say. Try it. Go on. You know you want to)

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.
