There Goes Tokyo.. Werewolf Style (Daily Doodle 7)

tokyo monster kanji werewolf destruction art doodle

Werewolves are cool but a 200ft (60m) werewolf would take the cake. Werewolves are like dragons, they are overused too much in fantasy video games but it would feel strange without them. I did something new to paint this picture. I quickly and randomly blocked in these tiny thumbnails then I would try to ‘see’ something in the random strokes I put down. It allows room for experimentation and ‘happy accidents’. After doing a dozen of these thumbnails I made one that resembled a city and thought ‘gee a 200ft werewolf would look great in this thumbnail’ and the rest is history. Time spent: 30 minutes.

UPDATE: I noticed a significant improvement today’s doodle, simply because I took the time to do thumbnails. It also helps that I blocked in the doodle instead of relying on a line sketch. I will continue to work this way with my doodles.

The Curse

werewolf curse werewolf transtformation female cursed pendant in pain crying crying for help

Digging around my archives I found this drawing I did of this female werewolf arms raised trying to call for help but being unable to with only howls and whimpers coming out. It was a unfinished line drawing that I made a couple years ago. I thought it would be cool to see if i could bump it up a notch with my new painting skills and recreate it in a more realistic way. Then I though why is she a werewolf? Being bitten by one was too cliche. I thought a cursed pendant would be the most effective way to portray that. It was kinda fun experimenting with the ‘special effects’. Unlike most werewolf art where the artist ether is trying to scare you or try to show off how bad-ass the monster is, I wanted the viewer to feel sympathy for her.
