This first work, pictured at left, is based off a character and scenario I had written up on a napkin somewhere at some point, and I couldn’t manage to get it out of my head. Basically this character is a maniac that broke into a facility to break somebody else out of it, stealing one of the guard’s outfits to fit in, and the play on “knight in shining armor” just sort of fit his personality. It took me about 20 minutes to draw, line and color the entire picture. I used a black pen and Copic Markers.
The second, pictured at bottom left, was drawn for a project in class, but turned into much more. This character is based on various common fears: spiders, wasps, needles, blood, snakes, death, etc. Are all incorporated into the drawing. It took about three tries to come to this final product, which I’m very proud of. Including those tries I spent about three hours drawing and coloring this. I used, once again, a black pen and Copic Markers, but also a red pen for the blood.
This third one, pictured at bottom in the middle, is another original character of mine that I feel fits the Halloween spirit. I drew this a few months back on my computer tablet, inspired by various songs, such as Sympathy for the Devil by the Rolling Stones. It took me about an hour total, since it was really just a rough sketch with color and minimal shading.
This last one, pictured at bottom right, is a drawing that I’m extremely proud of. I referenced it off of a screen shot from the final episode of Season 2 of a TV show called Sherlock. Awesome show. Anyways, it’s basically the character after he took a nose dive from a building and “died.” I did this entirely in black and red pen, no pencil whatsoever, only looking at my computer screen to know where everything went. It took me about three hours to get everything right, shading and all.
