My interpretation for the 21st word of my Tritober prompt list for Inktober 2018, ‘Lustre’. A serpentine monster licking a very shiny gobstopper/candy/sweet.
This one is another one I had high hopes for, but unfortunately, didn’t turn out as well as I’d hoped. The sweet in this image isn’t reflective enough, I started off quite well, but I think I overcooked the colours, and it dulled it out.
For “Lustre”, my idea was to have something very reflective and dazzling, but something that also appeals to the senses, which is why I came up with this… I think my mistakes came when my initial idea was clouded by how I’d actually draw it. I went in too thick with colour. The sweet was supposed to look the shiniest, but I think everything else I drew (especially the monsters tongue) competes with it.
I think if I had more time, I could have made this look better, but I suppose I have to let it be, it’s just one of those things.
Done using black ink, FB PITT pens, W&N Pigment Markers, and white ink for highlights. I hope you enjoy this entry, even if it wasn’t my best. Cheers all!
