For the second day of Inktober, the theme is “Divided.”

Honestly, it took me a minute as I flipped throught he catalog of monsters in my head (hey, there are a lot of legendry creatures logged in there!) I needed a monster that could divide itself, which is not a common trait, and as I flipped through my creature catalog I rememed one very famous serpent- the Hydra. Made famous in the legend of Heracles (aka Hercules) and his twelve labors (Hydra was labor #2, so fitting for today, the second day of the challenge.)

Most fun part was drawing the inside slice of the Hydra, something I don’t normally do. I’m also challengeing myself to largely freehand the ink work, just laying down some red penciled guidelines under the inks. Working on my linework control as well.
