An #octopus and a #dog for today’s #inktober

Tonight’s #inktober inspired by the Tinderbox by HC Andersen The princess’ story would be a more interesting one, I think. Surely she’d much more enjoy going elsewhere other than to and fro between dusty big towers
I hadn’t heard of the story before pb-and-paint mentioned it in a recent #inktober of their own.
