The Lethrblaka: another Christopher Paolini, Inheritance Cycle creature concept. I’m happy with the creepiness of this one.
All I can say is that I would need to discover better techniques to truly get anywhere close to a Gustave Doré engraving. A useful exercise, nonetheless!
I traditionally create a custom Christmas card for my clients – but am always racing the calendar to get it done in time. Not this year! Here’s a first sketch of a possible direction I’m thinking about.
Brielle was not taken with the first concept, which is great (see the previous post where I rendered a made-up creature for my daughter’s story). It is important to her that this creature appear very feminine. Fair enough. I focused in on the face this time. I thought about pulling this into ProCreate and filling out the rest of the body with some color added. We’ll see!
My daughter, Brielle, decided to write a story this summer and asked if I’d draw a few concepts of her “Hexwing” to help describe it in writing. This is the first sketch.
Here’s a doodle I did in the really nice ink sketchbook my wife gave me for Christmas. It’s about 6″x9″ – the perfect size for ink doodles!
