Rabbit Zombie Melee Weapon

Due 10/11 - Rabbit Zombie Melee Weapon.


Yes, seriously =D

Underground Kraken Insect and Haunting Shark Fisherman

A double-late, double-post. The first is my try at the Underground Kraken Insect. I figured although krakens are originally based on giant squid, I figured that this creature is more of an insect that lives underground, but explodes out of the sand to capture prey. I referenced it as a kraken as the sand pirates that sail the sands find that if they come across this giant beast, they are about as good as dead as if they were on the ocean and came across a real kraken. The alternative title for this is "Boy, that ship is f***ed."

I was torn between illustrating a ghost fisherman with a giant shark on his fishingline, but decided to go the lamer way of doing a ghost fisherman who IS a shark. Eh. Enough said on this one.

Could definitely a)spend more time on these, and b)work on mood lighting. Sigh. But at least I'm getting faster. Now I just need to either spend more time, or suddenly become drastically better. Guess more time it is.

Underground Kraken Insect and Haunting Shark Fisherman

So our next two topics are:

Underground Kraken Insect - due 9/08
Haunting Shark Fisherman - due 9/22.

We decided to try and go every two weeks now that school has started for us. Wish us luck in keeping to it!

Eater of the Dead's Secret Lair - Ri.S.K.

A speed paint, this was my first idea for the prompt. I figured the Eater of the Dead would be hanging out someplace remote to finish off his corpse dinner, and what else is creepier than the swamp?

Midway through the week, I decided to change my approach and was going to do a painting of the white house...get it? Bush is sort of an eater of the dead, as he directly profits from the deaths occurring in Iraq as well as in this country due to poverty, disease, natural disasters, etc. His system doesn't work for a lot of people, and I figured I'd do a political piece since I haven't done one in a while.

However, since I was too lazy to look up reference photos for the white house, and I already did some research for the swamp, here I am posting the swamp.

Eater of the Dead's Secret Lair

Our topic that was supposed to be due last Saturday (8/31) should be up soon.
