Inktober 2018: Day 16: Angular

Here is a Dragon Poacher searching an old Dwarven ruin in search of prey.

This Inktober drawing comprises of a ton of things I want to talk about, so let’s knock some of them out of the way:

Dragon Poacher: So, this idea is not actually mine. A friend of mine came up with this for his own Fantasy Universe. I’ve actually drawn this character in the past a few times. I am trying to integrate this type of character into my fantasy universe. Essentially, hunting Dragons in any way, shape or form is illegal. However, because Dragons are almost entirely made out of extremely valuable and rare materials, they are incredibly valuable in the Criminal Underworld. I’m planning on writing a story or comic about Dragon Poachers at some point, so keep an eye out for it.

Dwarven Ruins: I’ve been obsessed with the idea of ruins, especially Dwarven Ruins, since I was a little kid. Ever since I saw Moria in The Fellowship of the Ring, I was always intrigued by the idea of ancient, underground ruins filled with all sorts of weird and dangerous creatures. The Lonely Mountain from the Rankin-Bass Version of The Hobbit, as well as Erebor from The Hobbit trilogy has done nothing but cement this idea in my imagination.As of right now, I don’t have any of these types of locations established in my fantasy universe, but that doesn’t mean they don’t exist!

Dwarven Art: Since the theme of this Inktober drawing was Angular, so I decided to do some Dwarven Art as the focus of the scene. I’ve always associated a very geometric style with the Dwarves in my fantasy universe. The main inspiration for the way the picture the is designed was inspired by Egyptian wall art and Medieval tapestries. I had a lot of fun making this, and I’ll probably try to do some art in this style at some point.
