Daily Sketch: Old Drawings Always Give Me Art Inspiration


This old drawing, I must have drawn it a few years ago and it still gives me inspiration to draw new stuff as the ink details really make me excited about drawing similar horror skull stuff.

At the time of creating this piece, I'd already drawn similar pieces intended for a collected series entitled Torture Skulls in which I drew various skulls, zombie, demon or otherwise with various chains and hooks and spikes sticking through the skulls and kept them all black and white.

I guess, I'll have to link to this post, others in the series, so you could see them all.

Daily Sketch: Neon Green Horror Skull Art

When I plan to go live over on YouTube, often I really don't know what I'm going to draw and this horror skull was created with the ink drawing first and then I had the idea of using some Neon Acrylic Paints that were just not being used.

You can see that art stream replay here - Drawing a Horror Skull Concept

The original idea behind this design was for a t-shirt design, one type of artwork that would have a central and uncomplicated image that could fit on any colour t-shirt (except probably green, who knows lol)

The unexpected glowing look of the neon green and yellow paints was something that looked cool and it gives a nice radioactive feel to the skull.

I definitely will be using those neon paints again!

Daily Sketch: Demonic Parasite Ink Sketch

A Demonic parasite ink sketch concept I drew in a recent art stream here - Drawing Demon Parasite

I wanted the premise to be that the parasite had drained the life force out of the mans head, that's why it looked zombified and rotting away and then the parasite after feeding off it's host for some time, just suddenly bursts out of the hosts chest and eats through the hosts brains leftovers and then on to another host the parasite would go.

Such a lovely design of my usual ink sketchy artwork. This was based on an idea in my head and it turned out pretty much how I thought it would, only a bit better.

I would have liked to add more brain chunks and the eye a bit more mangled in the ink sketch, but I'm happy with the way it was created.

Daily Sketch: Dark Demon Soul Necronisphere Ink Sketch


This is a variation of the one I did here - Dark Demon Soul Art and I wanted to make a few changes, just to get the design looking right in my mind and on paper.

The demon skull had to be a bit more in the centre and the other skulls stretching rotten flesh surrounding it, it was a minor change that I felt I had to do, although I do like both designs, I do feel that I could do a 3rd version of this drawing and mix it up even further.

Something that I never thought about whilst drawing these, they look like pizzas, which was unintentional.

Again, I'm still working on this concept for a t-shirt design and although I like the drawings so far, I feel it just needs a little bit more development and also finishing or rather neaten up the inks on the drawings.

Daily Sketch: Warhammer Chaos Plague Helm Art


Warhammer is a great childhood bit of nostalgia and one that brings back happy memories of creative day dreams and trying to figure out how to draw the stuff I used to see in the White Dwarf magazine.

For this drawing I wanted to try and go for the disgusting chaos plague, sort of like the Nurgle creatures with a lot of rot on this rotten helmet with almost intestine like gas mask tubes.

As a kid, I never could perfect the ink work on this or similar types of drawings and so in later life, I'm happy to try and realize this fantasy stuff more now that I love to draw dark horror themed stuff more now than ever.

One of my most favourites is the Plaguebearers and I've never really successfully drawn one that I've liked, so I hope to have a go and see how that turns out.

As with other ink drawings of creatures and monsters I really enjoy inking the flesh textures as I can waste a lot of time inking loads of them details on a piece of artwork.
