Inktober 2019, Day 18: Misfit Camel

A camel standing in front of two lovely Cervus Camelopardalis, or Leopard Camel Deer. The Camel fits in, but doesn't. None of the animals should be standing in front of a coconut palm.
Inktober 2019, Day 18: Misfit, Camel

Day 18: Misfit. But also Camel. I combined the official prompt and the AInktober prompt (Temperature 1.0 this time), like some other people have done. Giraffes and camels don’t even thrive in the same environments, and as much as one might argue that Cervus Camelopardalis is sort of like a camel, it won’t work.

I worked smaller on this one, because I drew it during my lunch break and wanted to focus on the essentials more. For part of the image, I used a Pigma brush pen that, it turned out, had seen better days. I tried to embrace the dry-brush effect but after inking the camel and the giraffe on the right, I had had enough of that and switched to the Faber-Castell Pitt brush that made a smoother line. I’m not sure the difference is clear on the scanned and processed image but it was clear to me as I was drawing it. Some errors fixed in Sketchbook on iPad Pro.
