interesting topic, I'm guessing based on the will-o-the-wisp.
here's a quick sketch...he continually needs to absorb the souls of the living to keep his lanturn lit, while no souls are available he inadvertantly absorbs the environment around him...
not planning on completing this but I feel it is a good idea to at least wip up a sketch to finish (maybe never) in the future for these chows...
Art is not about competing against others and being better than everyone else, but it is about competing against yourself and discovering your greatest potential!
Wips from start to current stage. Will have to clean it up and improve the lamp. Plenty of time till sunday, though.
I went for the redneck-y look, cause it seamed probable to me that such a character would sooner or later end up beating his wife. Therefor the outfit, characteristic mustache and lack of hair.
As for the lamp - there is one condition given by the devil in order to keep it burning: it must constantly touch human flesh. Not being too fond of burning his own body, Jack collected bones and intestines of his victims in order to keep his precious rock alive. And because its molten rock and it burns trough almost everything, poor Jack must work really hard and pile up as much flesh as he posibly can.
Comments, critics and posibly tips are welcome
ded,Rob Powell - sweet!
Best of luck to you all.
NickyBeats: Yea sorry man, rules are, he has to be human. Not an Ent. You might want to start a new one. I left this one open as to let you guys decide how he met his fate, or how mutilated/rotten his body may be. But we gotta be able to tell that is a human.
ok. no worries! i actually thought you might say that so i mentally prepared myself already haha. maybe ill just start the whole thign over. see if i can have him a bit more human than the last one. thanks for the quick response though! much abliged!
