Inktober – Days 15 & 16 – Outpost & Rocket

I can only apologise as I have been somewhat remiss. I didn’t post anything for Inktober yesterday, so am having to do a double today. Very sorry. I did manage to post on Instagram and therefore Facecloth too. My excuse is a fair one I think. Yesterday was the father-in-law’s 80th birthday.

Now don’t be getting any ideas about the pater-in-law. He’s far from your average 80 year old. He goes rowing at least twice a week, hiking, gardening and is sometimes quite difficult to keep up with.

Anyway, the excitement of birthday celebrations and being taken out to dinner meant that I had little time for posting.

Based on the well known fact that there is always a silver lining, this means that today you get 2 ink drawings. Lucky you. The first is based on the prompt word OUTPOST and is from Inktober day 15.

OUTPOST – Day 15

I love this drawing. It may be my favourite because it combines two of my favourite things. Mountains and snow. I could definitely live in that outpost. Well, I could if it weren’t for the cat. Great to draw, but not so great in real life as I am allergic to the cute little feline critters.

The prompt word for -day 16 of Inktober is ROCKET. I’ve already drawn a rocket (see day 9), so you can imagine where I started. He’s my offering…

ROCKET

I’m convinced that alien life will be not just friendly, but usefully so.

Tomorrow’s prompt word is STORM. Hmmmm…
