Inktober 2020 – Days 17 – STORM and 18 – TRAP

Two for the price of one once again. It’s been a busy weekend, so struggled to find time to post yesterday. I think I maybe need to spend less time drawing and more time writing. Poblem is, I get really in to the drawing. What I thought would take me 20 minutes takes 2 hours. Clearly not been paying enough attention to those time management courses.

My first drawing is based on the prompt word of STORM. This one was pretty easy. Storm. Been in a few of those. Most of my personal experience of storms has either been on mountains or from the safety of a house. Time to get out of my comfort zone I thought. I shall draw a storm at sea. Also out of my comfort zone because I’ve never drawn the sea before. Learning curve time.

Here’s my first submission for the word STORM…

STORM – Spot the milk bottle

Although I’m really pleased with this one, I’m not entirely happy wth the crashing waves behind the lighthouse. More like boulders or clouds than water. 6 out of 10. Must try harder.

My next offering is for the prompt word TRAP. I struggled with this one. I did consider drawing the demise of yet another rodent, and toyed with the idea of a tank trap (I love a good tank). But, none of these felt right, or light enough for my style. So, I cheated. Did a quick cartoon based on a play on words. Not everyone will get the joke and there will be those that say that it is cheating to add an additional ‘P’. However, that’s a chance I am willing to take.

What’s that sound I hear? Is it music?

Tomorrow’s prompt word is DIZZY. If you want to know what I will come up with, tune in tomorrow.

  1. We like the storm and the blinking lighthouse. And the inkuisitive goat is really cute. Guess the background is Swiss mountains rather than Crinkle Crag?
