Illustration Friday: Wilderness

Posted in Art with tags , , , , , , on January 21, 2010 by scratchyb

Another Illustration Friday piece.  I’m trying to participate in this to keep my mind in art mode when I’m not at work.  The actual piece I wanted to do for this one couldn’t be finished in time, but I do intend to complete it.  This is a sketch I did over the weekend, while in Wisconsin for a relaxing mini-vacation.

“Sentry” Golem #1

This is something I’ve had in mind for a while: a series of these creatures that are just kind of inspired by the random shapes my kneaded eraser ends up in. I think of them as golems, but looking at this one, I know some people think of this as an alien.  That’s okay too.  It’s an alien golem.

Here’s the drawing I did a few years back that got me thinking of this idea.  This one’s done with pastel pencil and pen and ink.

The Koalabat cometh

What can I say?  The wings are an example of the dangers of crosshatch addiction.  Yes, they are crosshatched in.  I do, in fact, understand that there are mediums which can fill in dark spaces much more efficiently, but I prefer doing things the painful way.
