all the king men couldn't put humpty together again...
and i didnt draw them very well either..
im a little dissapointed in these to tell the truth.. they feel a bit unoriginal and uninspired to me... i couldn't do anything with a knights lower half that looked decent. I'm getting tired of drawing with my mouse. I might redo the knights another day..
if you are wondering about my plans for all the concepts i will do i have decided that i will most likely bring them all into some kind of nursery rhyme composition with mother goose as the focal point.. im thinking maybe mixed media.. ink.. watercolors... colored pencils? any tips on working with these medias together?
I really like your stuff. You've got this creepy stylistic thing going on with your characters - that's good. They stand out from the run o' the mill stuff. The enlongated limbs and insect heads, Mr. Moon, et all. They have a whimsical fairytail essence about them that reminds me of those reall wild children's books I still remember as an adult. Very surreal and dark, and very good.
wow thanks a lot guys 100 something views and no replies at all and then two in one day? That makes me real happy.
spellshaper: thanks for the comment. I like the self portrait too.. probably the only thing int his thread that I consider finished.
Oregano: thanks for the comment! I'm glad you like my style.. I appreciate style over quality... so knowing that I have a good style makes me feel good. Your welcome for whatever you are thanking me for :]
oregano: well in that case your very welcome . I'm glad you think my works are cool. You have a point with the style/quality thing.
"Three blind mice,
Three blind mice
See how they run,
See how they run!
They all ran after
The farmer's wife
She cut off their tails
With a carving knife
Did you ever see
Such a sight in your life
As three blind mice?"
i dont remember the nursery rhyme being so violent.. but.. oh well. It's not as bad as finding out that "ashes to ashes we all fall down" was a song children sang when they had the bubonic plague.. thats just depressing.
i used some reference.. mostly for the first one...
edit: i just noticed it isnt really too apparent that they don't have eyes.. that is how i decided to (for the most part) depict them as blind... im not really sure what an eye socket looks like when the eye is missing.. so if anyone would like to give me some comments on that or perhaps a paintover (no photographs please o.o; that'd be real nice of you and i'd appreciate it
