This was a homework assignment for my Advanced Drawing class. The theme was metamorphosis. I have drawn many dragons but never a man turning into one, so I found it a fun challenge. I created the drawing in charcoal. Afterwards I scanned it in, fixed some minor issues in photos that came to my notice when it was critiqued, and added some color to the charcoal drawing. It took around 8 hours total just in the charcoal phase. Charcoal is a new medium for me and was struggling with it. A word of advice, never use vine charcoal to shade, use a compressed charcoal stick and a charcoal pencil instead.
A super quick illustration I did for the Ugly Truth Contest which I had to have in by midnight tonight, so I procrastinated to the last minute to do it. The reason I resisted is that I’m not to fond or good at macabre artwork. The submission of this painting I send to Ugly Truth has a mouth inside the mouth. I liked the original better so I uploaded this to the blog instead. There is so many great submissions, don’t think I have much of a shot this time due to the lack of macabre in my painting and that I didn’t have time to color it. That’s OK though, because it was fun regardless. And it It was my first time I ever entered a contest. I will be entering more contests in the future
Photoshop, 3-4 Hours. Used my own photos as a reference.
