I made this drawing a while ago, when I just started to discover how to use pencils for drawing by tilting the tip and it was an interesting exercise, and I certainly was very entertained at the time, but when I was tidying up a few days ago, I came upon the same piece and boy, it really showed how scratchy and inexperienced I am with drawing with tilted pencil XD
I mean I still think it captured the character well, and certainly... there's something loose and expressive about the pencil strokes, but I can't lie, it made me itch to tighten it up hahahaha.... so i took it to digital inking :)
Here was the final version of the pencil piece:
I used my double ended pencil for this one, which was great, cuz one end was perfect for tilted angle and the other one was sharpened so that I could use it normally, for drawing with the tip of the pencil. I don't know where that small double-ended pencil is though :(
For the step by step, please check out the original post: Dark Moon.
And here is her, tidied up and inked digitally :D
I really need to figure out how to do highlights on real media... hmmm. I've seen other artists able to place finely defined highlights even on paper, so there must be tutorials on that somewhere, hahaha :D
As for the woman's story, she's a cursed character :( Poor woman. I haven't decided on a name yet, but her story is that she is compelled to murder a random person once a year, on a night of a full moon, by pushing them off a cliff. Her victims would struggle but when she's in her trance, she possesses superhuman strength. She would drag 'em, despite them clawing and fighting against her desperately, and then she would fling them into their doom, crashing against the jagged rocks below the cliff.
Will she be able to break the curse??? Why was she cursed???
One day, I will sit down and write the story properly! For now, it is past 11 in the evening for me, and a spider is very tired and getting incredibly sleepy zzzzzzzzz
Good night, everyone o/
