Inktober 2017 Day 5: It’s a “Long” Story

The story behind today’s Inktober drawing isn’t a “long” story at all.  It’ll make a lot of sense once you see the final drawing (Click the title to read more!)

In this post:

  • The Origin of It’s a “Long” Story
  • Preliminary Sketches
  • Final Drawing


“Long.”  In contrast to yesterday’s drawing, the idea for the “long” prompt came much quicker to me.  One could argue that there are more possibilities for “long” than “underwater.”  However, inspiration struck, and I decided to base the drawing on Pixar’s 1st full-length movie.


Like I said in the introduction, the title is a misnomer.  The story of how I came up with the idea for today’s drawing is short and not “long.”  I knew that I wanted to draw something based on Slinky from Toy Story.  To make things more interesting and to hit home the idea of something “long,” I wanted to create 3 separate drawings that could be viewed using the swipe feature on Instagram.

Because I had a clear vision for today’s drawing, it was easy to create the finished product.  All that was left to do was to ink the drawing.  The slideshow feature doesn’t quite to do the drawing justice, so make sure to check it out on Instagram. Hope you enjoyed today’s Inktober drawing.  Make sure to come back tomorrow for Day 6!

Thanks for reading!
