Devil's Tooth

Something from a dream last night. I rarely remember my dreams unless I go back to sleep after first waking up, which happened this morning. And I overslept.

The Devil's tooth marks the steepest point in a mountain range completely enclosing a hidden valley (think meteor crater), which is why (although it makes no sense now that I think about it) a lift system was built there.
There is a second part which I remember, which was more spectacular by far but it's too late to paint that now.

Time taken: ~ 30 mins

A bit of a play with shading and trying to go for a more realistic look than normal. Got a bit lazy in the ribcage area. Wasn't quite sure how to shade it.
No reference. Time taken: An hour+?

Oily back

Speed sketch, 10-15 mins. Half used a reference image but mostly improvised.

Good night world!

The Making of Twelfth Night in NEO

As mentioned in my previous post, I've been working on an adaptation of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night for SelfMadeHero. Simultaneously, housemate Faye Yong is working on her Merchant of Venice. Progress art for her and the other coming titles can be viewed on the Manga Shakespeare Ning network.
There have been no progress shots of Twelfth Night so far, and for a good reason. Starting with the current issue of NEO magazine (issue 56), there will be a series of six features showing every step in the creation of Twelfth Night - from concepts to finish.

In this first issue I introduce myself, talk about my background and how I got in touch with SelfMadeHero.
