Finally something new to upload . This one was fun to do, and I'm happy with the result. The full moon ... just kinda happened. I hadn't planned on making a moon-scape out of the white circle, but what where the alternatives? Leaving it plain white, which I felt was boring but it also kinda reminded me of a James Bond intro.
Anyway, obviously it's Loki (played by Tom Hiddleston) from the movie The Avengers. I know, the reflection on the helmet and armour doesn't fit the position of the moon, but that's a petty detail. A petty detail for a petty god ...
Time: Around 6 to 7 hours Size: 15 x 15 cm / 5,91 x 5,91 Inches Materials: Smooth black paper for presentation / chalk illustration from CANSON Compass 0,5mm HB mechanical pencil White, light grey, dark grey and black coloured pencils from Caran d'Ache White Hybrid Gel Grip pen White ink from Pelikan Titanium white acrylic color paint from Liquitex Blending stick, kneadable eraser, fixative Reference picture Loki (kudos to whoever is the photographer!) Reference picture moon (by mjagiellicz) Title: "A soldier on my own" is part of the song "Iron" by Woodkid. Great song, I was listening to it a lot while drawing.
Comments and critiques are, as always, greatly appreciated .
Ooh, I love it... o.O It's an amazing piece, the variety of shades and textures is fantastic The moon is absolutely amazing, I can tell it took a lot of work. Also, I love how while the silhouette is mainly an outline, we can still see some contours made by light reflecting - fantastic
Aw, thanks a lot, happy to hear you like it so much! I wasn't sure how the moon would turn out; I've never done anything like it before and I procrastinated drawing it for a while, but then just went for it. And it was done pretty fast, actually. The scan made the different textures more visible that they actually are in real life, but that's just something I have to live with. And since you seem to like them a lot, then you won't hear me complaining . Anyway, thanks for having a look and taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it !
I just love how you take all the good things that fandom can give, and you make awesome things from it. Title from Woodkid (with the greatest video EVER), Loki from the Avengers and a full moon ... well, I'm choosing to see some Teen Wolf in that. So there! Three awesome things in one! You, my friend, are a gift.
I love this. It's so simple, but yet so loud. Yes, a drawing can be loud. Now it can. This is.
Thank you, Moa ! Thehe, I knew you would comment on the obvious (and not entirely false) Teen Wolf connection there . Yes, I though of Teen Wolf when I made the choice of drawing a moon. Or I rather thought of your moon-cookie you made for the Sterek Cookie Campaign (or whatever you called it).
Oh my god, this drawing just got even BETTER! Not only has it got an awesome figure, drawn in an awesome way by an awesome person, with an awesome soundtrack and with awesome connections to teen wolves ... it's connected to COOKIES as well!
