The other day I went to the store and got some nice deals on Strathmore sketchbooks. I decided to try them out with a nice mechanical pencil sketch. I scanned it and darkened the pencil and fixed some stray marks in Photoshop.
A little skull head monster with a broken horn and a bit of fur was all I could come up with. Basically he has fused bone plates for a face and eats souls for fun.
Sketch of my demon golem character Scully.
His body is constructed like a golem’s with bits and pieces from various animals, notably a deer’s body and a bear’s pelt. His creator intented to summon a servile spirit but unfortunately a malicious and petty one was summoned by accident. Scully’s not particularly invested in taking over the world but he does his best to mess around and make his creator’s life more difficult out of spite because he doesn’t enjoy his patchwork body (he desperately wishes he had claws) or the physical plane for that matter. He’s also pretty chatty, like all vindictive monsters should be. :)
20 minutes in Oekaki.
I’m trying to iron out his design so I can draw it with consistency.
Oh glorious red pen! How I’ve missed you!
More character refinement on an old character of mine. The proportions of the face and antlers are better than the last picture I drew, but there’s still some off parts about his neck (llama neck!?) and leg that bothers me. One day I hope to nail down all the details and nuiances of all my imaginations — I’d say Scully is about 50% done.
Anyway, comments and critique are highly appreciated. (:
I had to make an art piece for the Shakepeare play Hamlet:
Nothing says Hamlet like death and swords.
I should have spent the time painting the poster black and use my white gel pen for a more dramatic effect, but I’ve been running short on time. The quote is from Act III, scene ii, at the end of Hamlet’s final soliloquy. I didn’t want to use “To be or not to be…” since it is one of the most quoted lines from the play.
I tried to put in as many objects from the play as possible: a rose for the love/romance between Ophelia and Hamlet, a cup of wine and poisoned pearl from the final scene, swords from the duel between Laertes and Hamlet, the snake which stands for the poisoning of the Old King Hamlet, and the skeleton Hamlet because it’s a tragedy and the hero must of course die in the final act.
Posterboard with black and red sharpies and a red paint marker. A reference was used for the skull head. I cut the posterboard into an odd shape so unfortunately I can’t scan it properly ):
I was probably working for atleast a half an hour until my internet died and lost my original image. I used Google+skulls for references for the face. I liked the look of the deer, horse and grey wolf skulls, and tried to be accurate but blend the skull types. Not exactly perfect, but I just wanted to get it done after already losing my original work. (About an hour and thirteen minutes in Oekaki)
