Draw - Karloff as Frankenstein

After my last post I decided I should sit down with one of my projects and just draw it from start to finish. I can say that this is one of my favorite pieces to date.

I had seen some work at a tattoo convention by a young lady called Kara Kastanada - You can see some of her work on her facebook page. There was a walk-through of the technique she used to get the shading right on one of here pieces. I took some advice from it and applied them here.

For my first time using new techniques I am more than impressed and wish I knew these things sooner. Anyway, without further ado, here is my take on Boris Karloff as Frankenstein.

Draw - King Kong (first attempt)

This is the result of me wanting to push myself further to see if I can do more art along the lines of the Zombie Embrace drawing I done. To be honest I really enjoyed working on this, but I have to admit that it was start 4 weeks before I managed to find time to finish it off.

It is based on this image.

Draw - Ahhh! Brains (Bisto Parody) - Part 1

I have been working on a little Parody of an old Bisto advert involving, you guessed it, Zombies.

This is the first full design based on the original that you can find here. I have added some of the concept sketches at the bottom that I doodled while at work.

From here I began further development of the Brains based on the Bisto text used in the advert. From the basic outline in the above image and the sketches included I hope you can see the development process.

Here is the first inked version of the design. As you can see no shading has been done and only the outline is complete. I think it gives the design a bit more life.

With the text in mind may still change the R as I am not too sure about its final shape, but we'll see what it looks like when I put it all together and begin colouring. It may look better then.

Once I have began the colouring process I will add more scans and hopefully we will have a finished design in the coming weeks.

The Sketches that really started it all.
