Ink, 6″ x 5″

The Inktober day 10 prompt was “gigantic”, so I just had to do Andre the Giant in The Princess Bride.  If you haven’t guessed already it is my favorite film.

This is a super quick sketch on a page with a couple other loose scribbles that weren’t quite working out.  They were meant to be preliminary sketches but ended up being all I got done for Inktober yesterday.  I like the way the page looks because it shows a little bit of process.

I’m a little behind as I still haven’t finished my drawing for the ninth.   No worries.  I will get it done.

I am joining the fun in the Inktober drawing challenge.  Make an ink drawing every day for the month of October.  The prompt today was “swift”, which made me think of Jonathan Swift of Gulliver’s Travels fame.  Turns out he wrote a little poem called “On Ink”.  How fitting!   Here’s an excerpt:

I am jet black, as you may see,

the son of pitch and gloomy night.

Yet all that know me will agree,

I’m dead except I live in light.

Tomorrow’s prompt is “divided” and I have yet to come up with an idea for it.
