Inktober 2020 | Week 3

Welcome back to another week of Inktober 2020! This week has been hectic (it shows towards the end) and I’m honestly just glad that it is week 3 already. So, here are the inktober drawings from October 17-October 23 (today) and their respective six word stories. Getting on with it now!

An overview!

October 17: Storm

I spent a little time on this one. Ever since I drew the one for Dune (October 13, see the post here) I have been wanting to do something similar. I drew this off an image I found on Pinterest. The ship/boat isn’t very evident because everything is black but I think it shows okay.

Six word story:
Weathering storms had become her hobby.

Because life is fun *evil laugh*

October 18: Trap

For some reason, I kept seeing a businessman trap his clients in some sort of insurance policy but I didn’t want to draw that. Then I realised I could just draw something that had trap in its name and Venus Flytrap just popped into my mind. I have a vague memory of learning about it in school but what caused me to recall its name so well was because the scene in Ice Age where Manny and Diego are devoured by a plant (temporarily) has been preserved in my head for some weird reason. I used two images from Pinterest for reference.

Completely out of context, but since this is an art post, I figured I might add as much art as possible. Given below is an Ice Age page I did a few weeks ago! I think everyone except Manny turned out okay.

Six word story:
Joe created traps for a living.

Very poor attempt. Moving on now before you get a chance to think on it.

October 19: Dizzy

I wanted to draw one of those cartoon characters who had stars for eyes and birds circling their heads but I couldn’t find a good reference image. But I found this one on Pinterest which I attempted to draw. It turned out okay in comparison to the original but now that I look at it, it looks like he is admiring the stars above his head.

Six word story:
Dizzy with workload, she ran away.

I’ll leave it to you to guess where she ran away to. I’d love to read your ending, please comment down below completing ‘…she ran away…’. No limits, make it as lengthy as you want it to be. Looking forward to reading them!

October 20: Coral

This is by far my favourite even though it didn’t turn out exactly the way I wanted it to. I like how porous it turned out looking. I think I used 3 reference images for this, all from Pinterest.

And yes, I struggle with writing or drawing straight, even with a ruler. It’s annoying especially when a teacher asks you for a piece of paper and you use a ruler to get the edges clean but end up giving her one with uneven edges because you don’t know how to hold the ruler straight and then the teacher is like

Six word story:
Coral red was her favourite colour.

Yeah, I wasn’t getting anything with Coral. That sounds like a sentence I would write in first grade.

October 21: Sleep

I did tell you that me being shoddy towards Inktober would show towards the end. And this is where it begins. I wanted to draw a person dreaming but sadly, time was not on good terms with me. So, I drew this baby panda, they’re just called cubs. I was disappointed to see they didn’t have a unique name. Oh well.

Six word story:
Sleep is beneficial for happy living.

It is a fact. and apparently the only good living practice I follow. *sigh*

October 22: Chef

I did not like how this turned out. I actually wanted to draw Remy from Ratatouille. But drawings like that and this one too look better in pencil where you can use different shades to bring out the shadows in certain places. So, doing everything with a pen didn’t really work out towards the end here.

Six word story:
Cheffing on boats, he learned fishing.

That sounds so stupid. What I meant was since he is working on boats, he makes a lot of fishy fish centered dishes and learnt to fish so he could have a fresh supply.

October 23: Rip

Again, I wanted to draw a ripped piece of paper or something that was torn, definitely not a headstone but then again, time was sulking and not cooperating with me, so I drew a gravestone which took hardly 15 minutes which definitely shows in the drawing. As I stated earlier, I struggle to draw straight for some reason which hopefully explains why this looks so…flexible.

Six word story:
He ripped the token of gratitude.

Let us just assume some person named Kris backstabbed his mentor who taught him and fostered him, and gratitude was thrown out of the picture(or story) or in more brutal terms ‘ripped’.

But I feel this would do better with completing too. Feel free to complete it in the comments ‘.. of gratitude when….’ Can’t wait to see how it ends!

And that concludes week 3! Also, I’m sorry to say that I won’t be posting on this Sunday but there will be a different kind of post on Monday instead.

Read that as just Sunday

And that was all for this post! Let me if you have a favourite and don’t forget to complete the stories!

  1. I loved all of these! I think my favorite was either the Mickey Mouse or the Storm? But I really donโ€™t know. Coral was really hard though. But I liked yours.

  2. D! These are epic. The storm drawing is so detailed and I love it. The trap one actually reminds me of the Journey to the Centre of the Earth movie, when they also get devoured by plants. ๐Ÿ˜‚ The Ice Age drawing is so good tho. And just- I adore all of these. And the words, too.

  8. My favourite is STORM. My completion of the 6 words is; Dizzy with workload, she ran away… to the Circus. Where else!? And my advice, for what itโ€™s worth, straight lines are overrated.
