Least Original Design Ever

So I took on this notion that I wanted to design a really cool looking axeman. An executioner that was unlike anything I'd seen before. About 400 executioners later I liked this drawing best. There were three-eyed fishheaded executioners, goblin executioners, executioners that looked like they were made out of taffy... I wanted him to look slow and lanky but heavy. The drawings pretty much universally sucked so I went with the least original possible look. But I really like how the bright green turned out. It was a complete accident. That was meant to be a shadow layer that I turned to "overlay" and suddenly the colours were popping after hours of them looking muddy and awful.

Moar Saturation. Now with Vampires!… Well Vampire.

Man I'm really on a cartoon kick lately! Been studying and doing drawings from Braindead 13 and Dragon's Lair and lamenting that Dragon's Lair was never made into a film. I love Don Bluth's designs.

Fighting saturation

I'm complete rubbish at colour. I know. Which is why I'm fighing to learn me some colour but I refuse to paint piles of fruit. So I'm playing around with trying to make things as high in saturation as possible. WHich goes against every living fibre of my being.

So this is a lunchtime sketch-turned colour attempt.
