Injection of life into neglected blog




blah blah excuses blah blah busy. Anyways.... here's some new drawings. The beast-thing is my contribution to Sloth's Wolfman challenge. I wanted to do something that vaguely referenced the old Chaney werewolf but wasn't just a hairy guy. Also I didn't want it to be too wolfy because wolves have something of an elegant face. So the only remaining references to Chaney are the underbite and the straight nose ending in a black doggie nostrils. Life drawing is thrown up here to prove to the universe that I'm still going when time permits and the goat? Is that a goat? Well is used to be a goat. Another Sloth challenge. We added armour to "something" and decided on goat. So I drew a goat and then tacked armour on but it looked like crap so I redrew it without really caring whether it was a goat. So it's kind of a muppetty schnauzer goat being ridden by a dwarf. Coming up on some spare time. There shall be drawings!

On first blush, I like the goat the most, but the more I look at the expressions on the werewolf, the more I grow to appreciate that set of drawerings. Very nice.

NICE life drawing there ... you say the model was mediocre but it doesn't show in the product.

So that's your wolfman! Cool. I think my favourite is his open-mouthed quizzical expression. He's a neat design because he can be both friendly and menacing, and I like his big sort of mane of fur around his neck, it makes his head silhouette not the typical wolf man thing ... nifty!

Dude, your life drawing has gotten so dynamic! The anatomy is so well indicated and well charicatured.

Wolfman and goat steed are awesome too.

thanks for the comments all! I don't use illustrator for my inking, I use flash (because I know nothing of illustrator =) I'm looking at my wolf-man there and he's looking more and more like a wolf shitzhu.
