INKtober day thirty-one–narwhal

so i told a friend that i don’t like it when unicorns show up in my inkstains because (no offense to people who love unicorns & do unicorn art) unicorns just are not my style. then i joked that i should do a narwhal. also! today is the birthday of a good friend of mine (hope you like original art for your birthday!) who has the nickname “narwhal” and lo & behold, i did find a narwhal in my final inktober drawing!! although i now realize that a narwhal has more of a tusk than a horn…but, i have been consistently fantastical with my interpretations of nature, so….

and a kelpie.

haha! not a unicorn. a little cooler than a unicorn. plus, you may have noticed, i have a thing for underwater scenes (or steampunky airship flying whales & whatnot scenes). i think sea creatures are amazing & fun to draw.

so there you have it.

a narwhal & a kelpie.

plus, you know, some jellyfish & seahorses thrown in for good measure.

i put so many layers of ink on this one. there was the ink stain. then the pen. then some orange. then some green. then some more pink. some black. and then more pen. ink ink ink ink ink! happy inktober!
