#Inktober Drawing: “Fancy”


And so on day 7 of #Inktober2020, we get thrown the curveball, “Fancy.” #Inktober.

I had an original concept that I roughed out while on a call (I frequently doodle or sketch while on a call, it helps me think and absorb information). That one was the first thought when I saw the cue word, “Fancy.” It’s below as an added bonus for you – it’s a rough layout of a teacup on a fancy end table.

The one I went with, pictured above, is more in the “Shocktober” vein, with Mr. and Mrs. Frankenstein dolled up for a night out on the town. I gave Frank some mutton chops and a cigar since he’s gotten over his fear of fire. The missus is happy to get out for a night on the town in a classic cut two-layer and a matching purse.

I added the green in the back so that I didn’t have to color them in with the green. The pens I have that have color are too heavy, and it would have marred the pic so I let the green behind them get your brain to help along with it.

I do have to wonder, too. If Frankenstein’s monster* and his bride had managed to work things out, would they have been able to find domestic happiness? This pic suggests so.

(* Yes, we should all just call the monster Frankenstein but I want to cut off the chances of anyone derailing the comments into a discussion about it.)

Anyhow, the disclaimer remains: If you like it, great. If you don’t, that’s fine too. I’m just trying to put it out there for the sake of putting it out there.

The rough sketch I did on a call that was in line with my original concept is below. I also didn’t know how busy I’d be so yes, I would’ve used it as a fallback if I hadn’t had time for the one above!
