Nothing too fancy, but here is my entry! The Terrorcorn... Outhouse for scale
Amateur Digital Artist of Surreal and Fantasy things!
I decided I wouldn't have time to do this one digitally, but I have been enjoying drawing and inking pictures this month so I went that route. I decided my monster would be the Terrorcorn after doing some rough sketches and felt like a horse monster would be cool. You will see below but here are my Sketches as well.
And finally! The Terrorcorn!
I really love this picture. I am not at home so I can't circle what I am about to mention but the one thing that I saw right away that sticks out to me is the tree limb on the tree with the face gets bigger instead of smaller, and the base of the limb is smaller than the rest. To me that just looked a little weird. If it's a style choice then by all means leave it in! Like I said I really like this picture and if I were to add or change anything it might just be to try and add a few more things the girl might have done to make the trees less ominous. You could maybe play around on a new layer and see if any little extras work, you might find something or you might not.
Just came in to say thank you for sharing this book! I plan to check it out and hopefully it can help me get back on track!
I just did this guy while I was at work on Christmas. Just a fun little mushroom man looking like a christmas tree. I don't normally use markers and pens so it was fun to do him!
But mostly Copic Marker practice, I wish I started investing in these earlier! I only have a few colors so far but am slowing buying more as I go on. Got some more for myself this holiday season as well as some acrylic paints and small canvases to practice some traditional painting!
What have you got for yourself this holiday?
@paolatosca Thank you for this! My days off are coming up and I plan on taking all the advice so far and putting it to good use, so far I have made a few small adjustments and started reworking the fur, and with your advice on the lighting/shading, I should have a pretty good looking piece here in a couple days! I'll have an update posted in the next couple days.
@scribblesbymike Ah good catch! I thought I fixed it when I did it initially, it was definitely much worse! I didn't even double check the bottom part, I will get that fixed on my next go round!
@kaitlinmakes Thank you, I definitely want to take more characters from mine and my wife's childhood and put a more mature/darker spin on them, I got inspired by American McGee's Alice. And I totally do sometimes feel a bit out of place when I post some of my art here because everyone else does have the kidlit kind of stuff/style. But the community is great! And sometimes my stuff is a more whimsical fantasy haha, this just happens to not be that way. I'll take a second look at her head though! I used a reference for the head and the angle but it was just that, just a head reference not a full body so I could see how my sizing is still a bit off, she used to have an EVEN bigger head lol.
Thank you both for the extra feedback! I will definitely be working through this some more throughout the week.
@nessillustration Thank you for the response! And I totally agree, I finished the head and my thoughts were pretty much exactly the way you described it, which is why I feel like I need to do some practice so I can find that middle ground you're speaking of.
I just now remembered that I have access to the painting fur and hair tutorial! I will go through that first before I make adjustments to his body again. But your absolutely right and I think part of my reasoning was I wanted the focus to be on the heads, so I didn't worry too much about the bodies as much, however now that you mention it, it just confirms my own feelings that I should have completed it fully!
So off I go to practice with the hair and fur tutorial and then I will take another jab at this piece to make some more adjustments.
Thank you again!
