This was fun! Artist Susan Sanford issued an illustration challenge in the form of the unfinished drawing and caption, above (on her blog, ArtSpark Theatre). I don’t normally draw, but this was too hard to resist. It being Halloween, my drawing has an otherwordly quality to it.
I was shocked, actually, that the face looked so friendly, given that I was using a horrible looking head as a reference (the head below the drawing on the side bar — or next to it in flickr). But there you have it! Often my work comes out darker than I want, something I alternately take pride in and am dismayed by. It feels like a refreshing change for something I INTEND to look wicked to come out looking so amiable and harmless!
