I feel that I've gotten into a period of artsyness, maybe more than that, a period of development and learning, an urge to get to the next level so to speak.
For this to work I really need to start sketching more! And to revive the ol' dream to have a active "Sketch of the Day" thingie here at devart is a good start!
So here's the sketch of t'day! Rawhead Rex in all his splendor! Inspired by the Clive Barker character with same name!
When I read Rawhead Rex some week ago I just thought to myself "This is a monster I really need to draw!". Clive Barker is really a great author to gain inspiration from when it comes to monsters and freaks in general! And his art is a great resource of inspiration as well, so be sure to check him out!
This wont be the last time I take a shot at ol' Rawhead, he's just such a cool and bad-ass character to sketch! What I found really interesting in the description of him was that he has double rows of teeth to devour his victims with, this made me think of sharks right away, so I made his jaw a bit shark-like, which in turn worked good with is almost globe like skull!
Here he's just tasted human flesh for the first time in a couple of centuries and wants more. I really enjoy the thought process going through Rex's head in the story, and Clive really made a good original character by getting in his head and making the reader understand the primal mind of a monster!
