I created this illustration of a skateboarding cosmonaut for the Illustration Friday website. It has been a very long time since I posted something on that site. The word this week is, Skate. Thought I would have a cosmonaut on a skateboard. That cosmonaut is getting some serious air, dude! I created the illustration with ink and added the color digitally.
It has been awhile since I posted. I did some sketching today at a school meeting. We were forced to watch a film about teen angst, even though I work with elementary kids. The film had a feeling of persistent worry about various trivial things. I drew some of the angry young people from the educational film.
I was knocking around the idea of a Gothic themed setting for some drawings. This is a drawing of a member of the Fraternity of Feathers. This society of like-minded individuals fight against the dark and mysterious setting. They battle the foreboding, fear and dread of the haunted land. This member of the Fraternity of Feathers has a giant owl companion that aids her in her fight against the darkness.
I was knocking around the idea of a Gothic themed setting for some drawings. I used some common elements found in Gothic novels. The land is a gloomy decaying setting filled with haunted houses and a castles with secret passages, trapdoors, and other mysterious elements. Supernatural beings such as ghosts, vampires and zombies abound. The weather is often foul and sudden rain storms filled with howling wind are common. I drew a constructed creature reminiscent of Frankenstein’s monster for the first drawing for this setting.
