Sorry to say I am a little embarrassed by today’s inktober post, it is lazy, because originally I didn’t want to do the art; only for an hour later for me to decide I would do something better, but since Posted that on DeviantArt.com already, my better picture didn’t get to come up as an inktober entry, I am a stickler like that!
So the rubbish and lazy art got the inktober day 5 title.
The silhouette of twilight is mine.
Henry did a wonderful space pirate, but he can’t enter the contest as he is under age; there is a space pirate character contest on Deviant Art right now which ends 31st October 2019 and must include a family logo, a special hat and a weapon. You get to win a year core subscription and a wacom tablet if you win. I wanted to do that, but I really don’t like the idea that it sounds like they are only after digital art, I am a traditional artist.
Inktober entry day 5.
Henry’s space pirate for inktober day 5
Today’s daily prompts are – Motorbikes – Troll – Space – Flowers – An adoption
Now there is a lot here to play with, very interesting I think – fantasy meets Sci-Fi definitely, or maybe not maybe space could also be personal space? A lot to think about with this one, so many takes and meanings.
Have fun with it.
The world is but a fragile sphere floating in the endless black sea of space
More fragile than the thinnest glass when it has been knocked out of place
Yet within this fragile sphere of ours, we are set spinning into space
With no inclination of how we float, we just do and in such grace
Every mortal life is precious
Every mortal life unique
Every mortal life is special and their life’s end is always bleak
Yet we keep on spinning, in the airless space
We keep on turning with such gentle grace
And we keep on believing
That we know nothing of what we are
Yet we keep on invading
Shouting truth to justify our war
And we sometimes die for nothing
But some they die in just
And some they keep on believing
Because they simply must
That there is meaning to all of this
This fragility in which we live
But no one has an answer
No one has one to give
So we keep on spinning, up there in the blackened space
We keep on hoping that our life will not be erased
And we keep on dreaming of things we do not understand
And we keep on searching, because that’s the way of man
