[ART] Cthulhu difficulty and overall flaws

This image is going to be a little more difficult to tackle than my other projects, because of some obvious flaws in the picture, which I so aptly supplied text over said flawed areas. Firstly, the shadow from my phone is unusually large in this picture, I know that the same flaw was in my last picture, but it seemed minimal in comparison. And now for something that I actually could have controlled, but when all you use to draw is with pens, there is little room for making changes. I am going to try and work on eliminating the forehead area completely, because I am just not happy with how I ended up drawing that. The shadow is probably gonna stay. I like this picture because it was completely off the top of my head, I used absolutely no references or copied/traced anything. As with all of my artwork it is  completely original and all done with pen.

I want to make  clear from the start, that my knowledge of graphics and graphic software is very limited, I am learning as I go. So though it might be a waste of time to edit an already flawed picture, or low resolution stock that would be better off not using at all. I am doing all this for practice sake. With that being said here is the picture I hope to edit soon. If no work on saturday or sunday, I will start messing around with it.

work in progress

I am having more fun than I thought with doing the photo manipulations. I still need to work on my technique with backgrounds and what not, but I am seriously enjoying this more than I have before. Let me know what you think. Regularly scheduled updates will be on a hiatus. I have real life shit that is kicking me in the ass at the moment. I will do my best to maintain the blog and regular life. I will for sure be showing the image I was working on last night.

EDIT…
here is the image, what I got done so far. Really its all finished, I just was going to work on the goblin’s mouth a little bit. But I like what I have so far. Oh and not to mention the damn shadow in the picture. I had to work with it though, the only image I had. Need to get a scanner or something.

photo manipulation

I just recently got back into photo manipulation. Turns out I can do a lot of details to artwork and what not. Here is my latest ridiculous and over the top photo. It was originally just me sitting beside a feral hog in missouri. But my obsession with dark and evil things possessed me to take a stab at a twist. Yes over the top and maybe a little overboard, but it was more practice than anything else. Enjoy.

sketching

This is just about the only thing that keeps me sane. I got a whole bunch more just like this, all I need do is just sketch and sketch. If anyone who is reading this who wants something personalized done I will happily do it for you. With just an idea I can draw you something.

And I apologize shitty pictures, I don’t have a scanner, not to mention all shot on my webcam. All images on same page, just had to take different shots to attempt to capture everything.

sketch

Here is a conceptual sketch of something I’ve been working on. A weird demon with many different limbs in a abstract way. Far from finished but just something I hope to complete soon. All done with ink. I cannot for the life of me, master the craft with a pencil. Someday…
