Inktober 2017: Day 11 (Run)

"Run, Verris! Run!"

This is loosely related to day 6 (sword), and day 13 (teeming). I was going to scrap this, but I'm running out of time if I want to finish most of my backlog before the end of October. It's also interesting from an educational point of view, so I'm keeping it. I intend to do a post-mortem of sorts once Inktober is over. In short, this is what happens when I try to cram too many details on too small a paper, while not giving myself enough time to complete it.

I wanted to expand a bit on the world building I did for the day 13 drawing, by building on the day 6 drawing. Loose idea was a kid and her dragon decides to play knight, and steals a sword and shield from one of the town guards. Tried to keep it cartoony, but there were too many details for even a 0.1mm pen tip. I'm sure it would be possible to get it right, though my hand is nowhere near steady enough, and there is no margin for error... So you can barely tell what's going on in this one. I also gave up in the middle of it when I realized I couldn't salvage it.
