I love the way these creatures spontaneously ‘happen’ by themselves. Almost always a certain song is to be blamed for inspiring their creation. I keep wanting to dub them ‘demons’ and the act of drawing them an ‘excorsism’, but it seems too rough. Not to mention ‘artsy/fartsish’!
It seems the old recipe for inspiring drawing ambience still works.
Caffe, stimulating music in headphones and I’m off!
In these few examples I had the general idea only of the basic shape
of the character and then continuned to bult on from that.
The mythology, the animals, the various characters from comics,
books, movies merge unconsciously together and what comes out
is a surprise even for me.
Here are few illustrations done for Inktober.
I just love drawing with ink, so I had to participate in this one.
There is NO WAY I’ll be able to do 30 illustrations because of all the projects I am currently doing, but a creature here and there…
There is something special about drawing with pen and ink, I still feel
comics work the best if they are done in that medium.
One of the illustrations from “Cirilo and Metodije” book.
The influence of Disney’s “Sword in the stone” is obvious. Few years ago I was studying the way the color was done on backgrounds for the film, specially the corners of Merlin’s cottage filled with books, learned a lot in the process.
