OLD WORK - Mind Flayer by Inkthinker OLD WORK - Mind Flayer by Inkthinker
Drawing done to push the portfolio back in 2001 while looking for more RPG clients. I went heavy on the texture, really working the inks. Dunno if it was really succesful or not... I was going for a definite horror vibe as the Illithid slowly sucks the psychic life from its victim.

Hmm, this reminds me of Robert Crumbs' work, the way you've used the lines for shading. Nice work!

The heavy textured, high contrast works really well in this, 'specially considering mass B&W printing for RPG books. This would stick out to me while flipping.

I don't think I want to see the porn that forces an expression like that out of me.

Screams of horror are a difficult thing to pull off... It looks good like your stuff always does. Made me chuckle. I know that wasn't your intention.. but take some solace in the fact that I have a pretty sick sense of humor.

Actually, one of the guidelines for Kenzer is that our work should be humorously horrific... or as the Art Director put it, "you'd find it funny, your mother finds it horrifying".

'Course, my mom's got a pretty sick sense of humor as well, so there you go.

I like the inking style a lot. The textures look good. I think it was a success! Cool subject matter too.
