It's the month of October, so that means that Inktober has commenced. Inktober is an international challenge, hosted on Facebook, that has over 70,000 participants. There's a prompt word provided for each day of the month to produce an ink drawing every day.
Day one prompt word is FISH
I chose to do the Tasmanian Spotted handfish. It is a rare, bottom-dwelling Australian fish and is classified as Critically Endangered. It is endemic to Tasmania, Australia, and is found in parts of the Derwent Estuary, Frederick Henry, Ralphs and North West Bays.
It is a small, slow moving fish which looks like it is walking on its pectoral and pelvic fins rather than swimming. They live in shallow waters and eat small molluscs, crustaceans and marine worms.
The Spotted handfish is one of the most endangered species of fish in the world. I've attached a couple links below if you'd like to read about the conservation efforts, support the handfish and/or learn more about them.
Day two prompt word is WISP
I chose to draw a wisp of steam.
Day three prompt word is BULKY
I chose to draw a wombat in a tiny hammock. It's a rather 'bulky' load for the hammock.
I hope that you've enjoyed the first three of #Inktober2020 Challenge's drawings.
Cheers, from Patricia (PJ)
