Since I’ve been doing some ink-painting and drawings in ink recently, I decided to attempt the
Inktober challenge, and do a drawing a day. Because of the need to make something very fast, some of these have been slightly tweaked in software once photographed.
Here’s the official prompt list!
Day 1: a slight cheat, since I made this earlier. The prompt was ‘Poisonous’.
Ungoliant poisons Laurelin : ink painting
Day 2: Tranquil.
Day 3: Roasted
Three Trolls eating MuttonDay 4: Spell
The Dwarves of Yore Made Mighty Spells
Day 5: Chicken
And in that very moment, away behind in some courtyard of the City, a cock crowed. Shrill and clear he crowed, recking nothing of wizardry or war, welcoming only the morning that in the sky far above the shadows of death was coming with the dawn. And as if in answer there came from far away another note. Horns, horns, horns. In dark Mindolluin’s sides they dimly echoed. Great horns of the North wildly blowing. Rohan had come at last.
Day 6 : Drooling
Draugluin sights an Elf (and friend)
Day 7 : Exhausted
Maglor Son of Feanor has fallen asleep still wearing his armour, one hand on his hearpe.
Day 8: Star
And when this new star was seen at evening, Maedhros spoke to Maglor his brother, and he said: ‘Surely that is a Silmaril that shines now in the West?’ And Maglor answered: ‘If it be truly the Silmaril which we saw cast into the sea that rises again by the power of the Valar, then let us be glad; for its glory is seen now by many, and is yet secure from all evil.’ Then the Elves looked up, and despaired no longer; but Morgoth was filled with doubt.
