Sketch Dump: The Shape

TheShapeSketch
Time Spent: About 3 hours

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.

Sketch Dump: The Creature

Gillman
Time Spent: About 3.5 hours

Continuing some ballpoint sketches with a monster theme (doesn’t every aspect of my entire life have a monster theme?) I conjured up the Gillman from The Creature From The Black Lagoon. Doesn’t quite have that natural look like my Frankie drawing, mostly because the Creech is just so unnatural looking. But for my first drawing of 2020, I am pleased. We only go up from here, folks! Happy New Year!

Time Spent: About 4 hours.

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?
