Inktober Day 8: Crooked

2017-10-08 16.03.45-1

Ink, 8″ x 6″

Today I continued Inktober with another Princess Bride fan art piece.  The prompt today was “crooked” and Vizzini is definitely crooked.

Vizzini: “We are but three lost circus performers.  Is there a village nearby?”

Buttercup: “There is nothing nearby.  Not for miles.”

Vizzini: “Then there will be no one to hear you scream.”

My approach here was to use a very light, warm gray to sketch the shapes in loosely at first, and refining and defining later in darker grays.  I stared at Vizzini’s jacket for a long time trying to figure out how to render it without losing my mind.  I never realized how fancy that dude’s costume is!  Something an art teacher said a long time ago came to mind: “indicate, don’t state”.  So that’s what I went for; an indication of embroidery.

So there!  I’m caught up.  Tomorrow’s prompt is “screech”.  Screech could be a synonym of shriek- that’s what I’m going to run with.  Can you guess what I might draw?
