DnD Guardian Crab

Author Comments

Ladies and Gents, behold! The last of its kind.
The DnD Guardian Crab!
Scientific name: Sword Shield Decapoda
This is a freehand Illustration created with a ballpoint pen, inkwash and Gouache.
My techniques with drawing involve no pre pencil drafting but rather the work igoes through an evolving process with ink from start to finish.
Working this way brings a degree of challenge and excitement with the idea that every mark made has to count and any mistakes must simply become part of the evolution of the design.


Is this piece still available?

Love the whimsical look and the use of colors!
Ink & watercolor always does go well together. :>

I am thrilled ye like the combination. It always makes such a difference, especially with presenting work online. Danke mucherly!

You're very skilled at drawing by hand!
I definitely appreciate the atomistic approach, as I recognize that to be more difficult than a holistic one (at least for most people), but can give a lot of personality to all the details of the artpiece, which is certainly does in this case.
Love the theme; love everything.

Great work ;)

Drawing freehand's always offered that freedom of creativity. Being able to evolve parts of the design on the whim without being restrained to a guide. I guess being a left hander as well deterred me from using pencils as a kid because of all the smudging so in a way this allowed me to refine my techniques with ink. Thanks for the review :)
