I made some sharpie sketches of Romans for my fourth grade students. We are learning about Ancient Rome and I needed some simple figure drawings for the students to use as reference. We are talking about the horrible fate of Pompeii, next week.
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.
