The Obsidian scary Bird Frustration Painting

Every now and a then I want to do a scary monster drawing with a super dooper pretentious latin name, in this case the creature is called nex superne. Which ofcourse means Death From Above, which you educated people would know! But for other people like me there is a thing like an online translator so that everybody can abuse ancient languages to make cool names for bands, monsters and pet chihuaha.
Making scary drawings works very therepeudic for me, it prevents me from having scary dreams and will cut my use of foul language right in the middle. Also it balances out cute drawings I do.

At work I've been drawing lots of obsidian "things" and I was wondering in the process that it would be pretty cool to make a spikey monster thingy out of it. Remembering the birds the grandma of my girlfriend keeps as pets I decided it would look freakish to have a big bird monster on stitly legs with little beady eyes with lots of spiky shapes in it. Not that I think parakeets are scary stilty monsters, because I think they are my adorable little feathery friends that could do absolutely no harm. But maybe they just want us to believe that!!!!!!!!!

Hmmz makes one wonder how an obsidian bird can even get off the ground....

For a thunderdome contest at work I started work on a lineup of ladies of pleasure. The subject was;"A master and his pet". Good practice since I did not have a lot of lady drawings. It's fun people recognise people they know in these characters.... which make you wonder what they do in the weekends.....

The professor part III

I was trying out a happier style for the professor character to make the story a little bit more accessible. Also as the story unfolds, changes to the design of the character are made contineously. Also to have a good contrast I tried out a grim style.

I like the characters that visualizes the story, kinda like the Frankenstein monster who visually depicts the essence of what the story is about (this kind of design was executed wonderfully in pushing daisies). This is the part of creating stories and visual design I flirted with during my student times. So this will be the proving grounds for my theories and paper developed during this period.

Making some preliminary sketches gives a lot of reference to work from. The writing of the story is going steady, the base of the story is written and I started on sketching out scenes. The scene sketches I will post here soon.
