Inktober 2020 Day #13: Dune. This one is weird to me. It kind of didn’t take too long, on account of all the negative space, which is fine, I guess. But, it almost feels wrong if it doesn’t take me forever. Anyway, with the upcoming new Dune movie (or series? I don’t know what it is, I just know it’s on the edges of my radar. I did read some of the Dune books. They got…weird…), my first thought for this prompt was related to that. Then I realized that’s too obvious, so I decided to pay homage to Star Wars again. That Krayt Dragon skeleton was a challenge, lots of details, but it’s in the distance, so I had to control myself otherwise the sense of depth would get wonky. Plus, the images I could find of it weren’t high enough resolution for me to zoom in enough to see the level of detail I wanted for reference. The images also suffer from some flat lighting, making it tough to spot shapes and shadows. It was tough to decide how to render the sand, too. Not super thrilled with what I came up with, but it’s passable, I guess.
