Oldies But Goodies!

Here's an image I started a while back... finally got around to finishing it. I was trying to go for a 1950's era singer and I knew from the get-go that I wanted a sepia color scheme.

I couldn't decide which one I liked more, so here's both.

They vant to suck your blood!

I recently saw an X-files episode about vampires and rented Priest, so I felt the need to draw some vampires.

I'll post a colored version soon, as well as some other  drawings.

Batter up!

 2H and 6B graphite, green polychromos, brush pen, ballpoint, photoshop 

Over the last couple of weeks, during my free time, I been working on this piece and a couple of others. It started as a doodle but quickly turned into a pain in the butt. I struggled a lot with the pose and trying to make it feel right. At one point I thought I had it, but then I re-watched David Colman's character design DVD and then I started to ask myself so many questions about the design, feeling, what reaction I was getting from it and if it was what I wanted. It eventually became so complex and frustrating that I decided to try to get back to my initial drawing and stop thinking about it so much and just draw.

I'm still bothered by a few design aspects but I'm glad I got through it and managed to learn from my mistakes, hopefully. 

My favorite part of completing a piece is getting to color it. With this piece I tried something different with the rendering and I think it paid of.

P.s. Save Versions! (had a little mishap and lost a chunk of work)
