This poor young lady was a member of another expedition to find the Lost Relic. But when she was captured by the Sky Pirates to interpret their map to the location of the Relic, she refused to help them. Of course, they didn't appreciate this very much, so they decided they didn't really need her help after all. This means a very nasty fall for our poor heroine. I hope someone will come along quickly to rescue her.*
Today, we feature a portrait of a nefarious SKY PIRATE.
If you have made it thus far without vomiting or leaving this page to go look at cute kitten videos on YouTube, I congratulate you. Sky Pirates are not exactly known for hygiene or good looks. It seems as though Sky Pirates also have a taste for ancient relics. And apparently they are determined to get the Relic the V.E.S. is after at any cost.
Tune in next time to learn more about Sky Pirates. Trust me, it's not good.
(P.S. hopefully this weekend I can catch up on some overdue Inktobers, so that I will finally be able to post the correct drawing on the corresponding day. Whew.)
A pretty fast drawing today. It looked really good in the preliminary sketch, but when I started inking it, I was like "meh". Well, you can't win them all. Hopefully I'll have something cooler to post tomorrow!
Mel the little flying reptile has grown large very quickly by eating all the healthy fruits and nuts in the Peruvian jungle. But all the adventure has given him such a hearty appetite that he wants to share Doc's sandwich as well. Doc is not very pleased with this, as they only packed six sandwiches apiece, and Inca Indians aren't very good at making sandwiches.
They were being followed - by an Inca Chieftan and some of his warriors.
Of course, the natives want to know what they are doing in their jungle. Overheated and exhausted, Arthur McGuire and his colleagues hope that they can talk the Chieftan into suggesting an easier route. But will the Incas turn out to be friendly? We'll soon see...
Our heroes have found some pretty cool animal life in the dark jungles of Peru!
Like this big friendly bird. Captain Nicholas wants to see if he can saddle-break him. It sounds like a good idea, but I just don't think it's going to work. Besides, they don't have time, they have to
I've fallen behind a bit on the Inktober posts, but I'm trying to catch up this weekend. This one was a lot of fun - I'm breaking a bit from the narrative of the V.E.S. for now.
And that black background element is completely ripped off from Jake Parker - at least I'm an honest thief!
The nice thing about Inktober is that for me, it pushes me to come up with something new and solve creative problems every day. If you're like me, that's something you need to do more of. That's why I'm considering doing a creative exercise of some kind every day after Inktober is over. Maybe I'll share it on the blog. More on that later. Until now, I leave you with Mr. Arthur McGuire who uses bombs to blast open ancient vaults (and maybe a few mechanical menaces) to search for treasure.
He'll be on the lookout for more Inktober drawings to post soon!
