Cerberus The 3 Headed Hell Hound Re-Drawing

 A few years ago I drew a couple of drawings trying to work out the Cerberus Hellhound and was quite happy with the results at the time, see post here - Drawing Cerberus Hellhound

Over time though, my artwork and style has evolved and become something better and so I thought I would re-draw that creature and see what it would look like or see if I could improve upon it. Could it be reworked or was it just a stroke of luck how I actually drew an artwork that just seemed to work out in composition.

Here are the two work in progress scans I did, the first one was the initial line drawing before all of the inked details added in the second one. I kept the overall composition, but just went overboard on the ink pen details and made the creature a rotten looking hellish version, much like the skin had been ripped off to reveal the flesh.

How To Draw A Cthulhu Shoggoth Creature

How to draw a shoggoth creature which is from the Cthulhu mythos of HP Lovecraft and the very idea behind these creatures is very inspirational and leaves lots of room for your imagination to take over when you sketch and draw these creatures.

In the video below I have a really great technique of finding the creature in the form of a paint sketch which lays down basic paint thinned down with water or thinned down drawing ink, it doesn't matter and then when that dries you start to ink details within the shapes you sketched with a brush and with the shapes as a basic guide you are able to follow along and create a really great creature drawing by filling in the gaps.


Split Demon Head Ink Drawing Work In Progress

 Working on a couple of split Demon head artworks, currently a work in progress for the ink drawings, but I am sort of obsessed at drawing combined heads, like skulls and other horror creatures and making them look cool.
