This is super Aeron. Have you seen Edie Fake's stuff? I think you would really dig him.
I just looked at it a little more closely. It doesn't look like it's 500 years old, exactly, but I could see 70 or 80. The details are great (the demons coming out of the horn remind me of some of Art Young's drawing; the hair on the beast is lovely.) The layout and use of white space is pretty straight-forward, but nicely done. It looks almost like it could be a playing card or a tarot design; it has that iconic look. Yeah, it's great.
Are you aiming for a woodcut feel, then? A lot of your work heads in that direction as-is. This is really ace. I love the stripes on the back two tentacle-antenae-a-mabobs.
I love all the scratchy shading on this it's wonderfull, I'm gonna ask the stock question.......what kind of pen are you using?
Thanks, yeah a lot of my drawings have been moving in that old woodcut style so I'm just running with it. I've been studying up on architectural drawings and garden landscapes dated between 15th and 17th century that I plan on emulating a more fantastic approach into and incorporating an array of beasts into soon. The pen I used for this was an indian ink Faber Castell Pitt artist pen with an S tip. I suggest picking some up of varying tip sizes, they work really great.
Great drawing. Glad to see you moving in this direction. I think it suits you perfectly. It's very drawer-ly, more so than you're more clear-line drawings.It does have a more archaic feel.I think you shoudl stick with it.
just gets better eh?
This is great.-adam
