Hell Hath No Fury...

This is the sketch to one of the other pieces I am working on that is not part of my pin-up series. It showcases one of the characters I had created for my mythology. Basically she is a lightning goddess and all that fun stuff. I had an old drawing I did of her posted in an old post as well. I actually have a great deal of stories planned out for her since she is one of my favorite characters in my world. Eventually I plan on making a comic about one of her stories and this scene is partially depicting a part of that epic. I know I basically summed her up as a lightning goddess but trust me there is much much more to her than just that. Well once I can get some of the stories fleshed out a bit more I'll get around to posting them as well.

As far as the images go, I attached the original drawing I did as well as a desaturated version. I gave the desaturated version because I feel it tightens up the drawing a bit and can better convey some of what I am trying to get across in the piece.

That is all I have for this update but look for the final drawing and studies to my serpent mistress to be uploaded soon.

Laters.

Irreidia Sketch

This is a sketch of one of the characters from my mythology. She is Irreidia the goddess of destruction and sister to the character in the last sketch, Korvek. She is the main character that will be in the first comic I will work on. This drawing was originally done for a test comic page. However, the page did not turn out as well as I would like. I did really like this sketch of her though thus I posted.

What really made this drawing work was the reference. The model was excellent at posing, she had a great shift to her hip that added a nice curve to the figure. Also to replicate her outfit I had the model clip a t-shirt around her waist, and to my great benefit the wind picked up. I was able to get a shot of the "skirt" actually billowing up. It was the coolest accident that ever happened during a photo shoot. Which added a great deal of movement to the drawing.

That's all for now I have a new illustration that will be up soon.

Summer Sketches Part 2 - Korvek

This is the other sketch I did over the summer. It's of my character Korvek. He's a god in the world I created Orum-Ah'zra. I have a large painting I did of him but I wanted to make a better drawing, thus I created this. I ended up thinning out his face as well as his overall body frame. All in all the character design stayed the same.

The reference for this piece were the pictures I took for the original. I used my friend Keita as the model for Korvek.

Korvek is the God of the Abyss (Hell), the element of storms, and the Preist of Chaos. The purpose of the stole drapped over his shoulders is to indicate his title as Priest. He also wears a crown of copper colored bones and horns as a way to show how he rules over the Abyss. There is also an eyepatch over his left eye that has a mouth on it which he uses to suck out the souls of his victims. Generally not a nice guy. He's one of my favorite villians from my stories.

I first comic I plan on making has him as the central villian. Currently I am working on a test page for the comic which should be done in a few weeks. The page will depict him fighting the main character of the story, his sister Irreidia.

I think this drawing turned out really well I am quite proud of it. I think I may do similar drawings of all the gods from my mythology as a series. Who knows if I have time maybe I'll paint all of them in Painter. But for now here's the sketch I hope everyone likes it.
