Inktober Day 28: Ride

One of the things I love about art is also one of the things I don’t love about it. Sometimes, no matter how you see something in your mind, it doesn’t always come out that way on the canvas. Occasionally it’s impossible to create what you see, and other times it’s even more amazing than you imagined.

Today’s Inktober offering for the “Ride” prompt falls between those two parameters. I don’t hate it, and I think it’s a pretty cool concept, but it came out nothing like I imagined at all when I conceptualized it in the car at 6:30 this morning.

Originally, I wanted it to be like looking out again from the inside of a ship, but the thing about ink is that once you make a ‘mistake’, you have to fudge and work around it if you want to salvage what you’re working on. Sometimes this means abandoning the original concept and going for something else. Now, this looks more like some kind of reward patch someone would get for being the best hitchhiker in the galaxy, and I’m okay with that. 🙂

I used Tombow duealbrush pens and Sakura gelly roll pens for this.
