24" x 24" charcole, white and black charcole pencils, and watercolor on pastel paper

this piece is a tribute to Burne Hogarth and his dynamic style of drawing. our assignment was to depict fear. my original idea was to do something along the lines of claustrophobia, but i ditched that more literal concept in favor of a more conceptual one. this is what i ended up with.

 He seems much more sad or tired than afraid. Maybe a more tight hand over the head the face and the man's eye looking down in a obtuse angle with wide eyes could aggregate some of this fear you aimed. It is, by the way, a very good technique you have.

Oh I instantly recognized this pose. I love Burne Hogarth's work, I have most of his books. Anyhow this is a gorgeous picture. I especially love the background really helps bring out the mood.

This is awesome. But it looks more like sadness than fear to me. And when i say this is awesome i mean this is like the most awesome piece of art I've seen. Maybe the background could be more blurry but its fucking awesome never the less.

Ha ha I knew this was Hogarth inspired when I saw it. I absolutely love how you added your own style by giving it a gritty texture. I actually kind of like this more then some of Hogarth's work because of that. Keep up the good work.
