After the success of the experiment with inked lines [link]
I decided to try my non-photo blue pencils with regular pencil lines to see if it still worked.
It does! Look at that! Not a sketch line to be seen, and they're all still in the original drawing. Total awesomesauces.
The picture itsef is one I've been meaning to do for a long time...I really like it when it rains. Not in the emo "I'm only happy when it rains" sense (though I do like that song) but in the sense that rain genuinely makes me feel happy. It puts a smile on my face a lifts my spirits. But this is something people just don't get, and I can't explain it (what nut would be happy that it's raining? yeesh!) so I thought "a picture's worth a thousand words" why don't I draw it?
So I did. This guys isn't anyone. He's not a character anywhere. He was just constructed for this picture. So there's no story to him. The idea with the blood was that the rain was washing it off his face. Doesn't quite work, but I'm still happy with it. I like drawing ruins.
He looks kinda like a pirate *laugh* that wasn't intentional.
