Daily Sketch Journal #17 - Demon Hell Spawn Marker Art

This hellspawn marker art makes a refreshing change from the black and white stuff I did the last 6 months of last year. I've started to use Letraset Promarkers more often for coloring in my artwork and they produce some pretty great results. Although I'm still experimenting with them, you can layer over different shades of a color and create some nice depth with tone.

Daily Sketch Journal #16 - Chainsaw Maniac

Trying to draw a chainsaw maniac and sketching ideas for that. The first pencil sketch was rubbish, but it helped me think better how to improve the drawing. And so this quick black acrylic paint sketch drawing of a chainsaw maniac helped give me some very basic ideas on drawing this as a possible illustration.

The chainsaw maniac figure needs to be explored more for such details as drawing the hands holding a chainsaw or the clothes He is wearing etc. I'll update soon!

Daily Sketch Journal #15 - Zombie Head Drawing DOTD

I went Zombie mad today and drew a Zombie face from the classic 70's Dawn of the Dead movie and will color it in with various art markers and colored pencils. Here are the pencil sketches so far and then what follows on from that, well we'll see!

This is the Plaid Shirt Zombie from the classic 70's Dawn of the Dead movie, once I get around to coloring it, it will have that 70's charm I think. Look for the inks and a splash of color later....

I suppose the bad lighting adds some sort of effect to this Dawn of the Dead zombie drawing.

Daily Sketch Journal #14 - Acrylic Art Explorations

In this daily sketch journal I thought it would be cool to do some acrylic art and just have fun slapping lots of paint on paper and seeing what occurs. Some mixed results here. Lets take a look.
Sometimes it's just best to paint stuff quick and see what happens.

Daily Sketch Journal #13 - Screaming Zombie Head Artwork

A screaming Zombie head artwork. I'm really determined to keep up with this even though I do the drawings and then lately forget to upload them. I was thinking about a screaming Zombie head and I'll think about adding some nice and vibrant colors to this illustration at some point. As always I'll update with new updates right on this blog post about this Zombie artwork as I go along.

I was toying with the idea of giving this Zombie head some hair, but alas no. I might do some funky colors however and make this visually stunning if at all possible.

Daily Sketch Journal #12 - Zombie Pencil Sketch

The daily sketch journal continues with some late editions lately, but hopefully will get back on track. This is a Zombie pencil sketch that will evolve into an inked illustration complete with a Zombie in the background, also I wanted to draw a bit of background too a graveyard perhaps?

Notice the daft broken finger on the Zombie, it's little details like that that make drawing this stuff worthwhile lol.

Daily Sketch Journal #11 - Skull With Maggots And Worms

It's quite frequent that I enjoy drawing a good black ink skull illustration and this one features a Skull with maggots and worms all around it. I have yet to draw in all of the maggots on the sheet of A3, but I will meticulously ink them in one by one. It might look like lots of rice around the skull, but I shall try and do some thinner lines on the maggots to try and separate them from that thought.

There is just something about all of the busy detail that seems intriguing to me as an Artist.

Update 13/02/2015 - I've complete the full drawing including the maggots and am unsure whether to color the illustration or just leave as is? 
I decided to draw the other missing eyeball on the forehead of the skull and show that the maggots are trying to carry it off to eat.
