Inktober 2021 Day #22: OPEN (mic). Here’s another prompt that took me awhile to arrive at something. When I get stuck, I usually Google the definition of the word and do some image searches. Somewhere in my Googling I saw a single, off-hand comment about “open mic nights” and knew that’s where I was going to go. I actually did a sketch of PMD years and years ago (back when he looked quite different) singing karaoke. That was obviously before I realized he spoke with signs only. That fact makes this image all the more funny to me. This one illustration took me 5 hours, mostly due to the brick wall backdrop and figuring out how I wanted to handle the shadows. I think it could still use some work and could have been handled better, but my hand is absolutely killing me right now.
