Once again I’m moving forward with ballpoint sketches with a “monster” theme (although with this addition we may just have to call it “horror”) and here’s The Shape aka Michael Myers. This classic slasher needs no introduction. I was going to work on a Dracula piece (debating about doing Lee or Lugosi) but ended up with Myers simply because I wanted to fill in a lot of shadow. With drawing, much like horror, it’s about what you don’t see that can get the point across in an even better way.
I was thinking about Halloween pails (as I usually do) and this idea sprung to mind. There’s just something about a pumpkin pailed sultry skeleton man offering his head-candy that really gets me in the Halloween mood, y’know?
I don’t really take part in the whole #Drawtober schtick. I never really seen the point of straining your imagination by sharing quick half assed sketches every single day of October when instead I can share something I’m proud of maybe once or twice a week. I mean, whose counting anyway?
