Medusa

in drawing •  3 months ago

Hi everyone~

I finally finished the series of small pieces of blue paper drawings :> To recap for those who are just joining: I got my hands on a piece of A4 pale blue coloured paper and I cut it into four sections. I was wanting to make illustrations that fill up the entire available drawing spaces, so I thought it was better to do with smaller size papers instead of an A4 one :)

So, the first piece gave us the Butterfly Princess. And then the second was the Beast. And the third was a very weird looking dessicated creature with insect baby at hand.... Here they are:

And today I filled up the last section ! I made a MEDUSA because I thought her snake hair would fill up spaces handily and I think Im right hahahaha :D

For some reasons, the blue came off pretty nice today :D Usually my phone camera doesnt really capture the blue as you can see in the ensemble picture above with all of them together. Somehow the blue usually just become pale and almost grey, but today, for whatever reasons, the blue is captured nicely :D Makes me happy ! XD

Step by Step

Step 1: Eyes

Step 2: Head and first snake

Step 3: Torso and more snakes

Step 4: Bodice and even more more more more MORE snakes

Step 5: MORE SNAKES, then shading, outlined and crosshatched the background and DONE!!!

This was another piece that I did only with the Sakura MICRON pen 005. This pen is really lovely and makes fine details so well * ___ *

And now, since they are all finished, here they are together, all four of them !

It was a small series of only four pictures, but as I've thought, I don't have a lot of stamina for doing series, and I am glad that this one is only four. I just came out of the series of 7 of the album challenge thing and I literally groaned when I remembered that I was in the middle of this blue pieces series... lol. It is not a good thing to feel unmotivated to finish something you've started, so I am glad it was only a series of 4... and doubly glad that the last piece was a small size paper... hahahaha~

This piece reminded me of Junji Ito's work in some sort of way. I'm glad I found your profile, your art is wonderful.

·

oh thank you so much ! .... i love junji ito XD aaaaaah <3

Lovely inkworks, spider. I like how you drew all those snakes and the details of her clothes. I'm sure it will look even better if I see it in real ^_^.

oh so cute! blue paper drawings! you drew them so lovely xoxo

·

thank you very much @moongirl <3

·
·

your welcome <3

snakes instead of hairs! great

·

haha yes :D maybe high maintenance, though... i wonder if they need to be fed...

Yay. Your series is finished. Looks great. I wonder if you'd get neck pain from having snake hair. It would be quite heavy I'd imagine.

·

yeaaaaah, finally ! thank you, choo.... !

and yeah, i think it might be a bit heavy... also maybe eating will be hard cuz the snakes would keep trying to eat your food...

in general, it doesnt seem to be an agreeable condition.... lol

·
·

Lol. I hadn't thought about snakes stealing your food. That's hilarious.

These are all so amazing, but I love 'the beast' the combination of animalia and human figure, just strikes a note with me. Well done.
