Inktober 2020 Day 6: Rodent. Hey, I’m sort of caught up now (technically I’m posting this at 1am on the 7th, but whatever)! Kapibaras are the original ROUSs (Rodents of Unusual Size, for The Princess Bride fans out there), so of course they would be the perfect steed for Plunger Monkey.
This one went a lot quicker than expected, especially since I had a hard time coming up with anything, but it was still a lot of fun to draw. I’m really loving the way all these ideas for these prompts evolve on the page. I don’t do any thumbnailing first, I just come up with the general idea and start drawing, and invariably all kinds of little details and “gags” and Easter eggs pop into my mind. If someone would pay my handsomely to spend my days doing these wacky illustrations of Plunger Monkey, I’d be a happy camper (and I do have an idea to do a Plunger Monkey Dictionary…a PMD…which would just be things like this. Although, most likely not a COMPLETE dictionary…even at one a day, I don’t know that I have that many days left in this lifetime).
