Here's something I done for the "final blow" series, originally meant to be a blow from Thor. Drafted it out in pencils and now considering to color it in digital, but I have yet to find a comfortable style of painting that offers just the same energy that my sketches has. I just need more practising, C&C Welcomed!
I actually did this awhile ago, probably sometime in January. This was really just a little practice with the colored inks I got for Christmas. Mostly for that big picture/project that I keep hinting on. I want to ink it but wanted to see first how the paper/board would react with inks and watercolors first, and I kind of liked how it turned out so hey, why not upload it on here. It's also pretty small, about the size of a playing card. Maybe a tad bigger.
The guy was referenced from this one dude from Branagh's "Henry V" here: (This video, [link] at 5:27 or somewhere thereabouts) I know, he's kind of spurting out the blood rather than spraying. Mine is a lot more of a spray, and in the movie it looks better.
A lot of people I showed this too said it was gross, but others also laughed out loud because it was "something you would draw." I don't think it's that violent really, but if you guys think it is I can put up a warning.
The reason I am posting this is because I think I need some advice... maybe some tips on nearly everything. to me it looks so....smooth and.... obviously many layers... I want this to become a painting. It's done in Photoshop CS and is the centerpeice to a series I am creating using the key players in Ragnarok from Norse Mythology. There is no background as of yet because that will be peices to a full mural of the final battle when all are viewed together. this peice is Odin.
I need help with this please... thanks. I'll try to not dissapoint when all is finished....
