The Devil


Hey guys. I drew this peice down in florida the other day. At first I really liked it but as I went on, It started to become one of those classic "I hate what I make+ pieces. I think It looks good fundementally and anatomically aside from maybe a few spots, but Idk.

My favorite part of the drawing is the dager through the bone, and the banner that reads "Der Teufel" which is The Devil in German. my least favorite part of thie whole thing is the moss. I wanted it to look old and forgotton like most of my stuff, but I added too much moss with not enough depth i believe. so it didnt really turn out how i wanted it to. Origionally it was going to be wrapped with large Oak leaves but I decided against it.

I actually left it in Florida becasuse, although I am not religious lol, just in case, i didnt want to take any bad luck on one of my first plane flights.

Let me know what you guys think about this one. I think it has good parts.

Here are some close ups.

This feels like a Castlevania boss

yeah i could see that hah

I also agree about the moss and lack of depth; the back of the head definitely feels like it needs a larger, stronger shadow. Overall, there seems to be a mix of lighting from the strong defined shadow of the left horn to the softer gradients and hatching of the moss and even the facial features (teeth). Putting down more stronger and almost blocked out shadows could give a more intense/dramatic feel.

Really like the overall design, especially with the smaller details you add to the piece. The skull is also solid, with a few embellishments :) .

Permian-Extinction responds:

Thanks for your tips. I also agree with more blacked out spots. I shouldn't have hatched the moss either haha. I may have just gottne lazy. Thanks again!

really good art.
