    Finished ink drawing
  • This image started as a practice with patience and pen. Very quickly it started to have more purpose than that.

    All the emotions that I often keep cooped up inside me during the day would slowly dissolve as I fleshed out this image. I like to keep my true emotions and thoughts to myself, so this image has helped to keep me from bursting open.

    I won't share with you my problems, because they aren't important. I will share my creation with you instead, because it carries more significance.

    (p.s. i know the photos are bad but i did that on purpose, this is just a progress report
     the finished piece will be better, more to come)
  • I always start off with a light penciling. This way the proportions will fit perfectly within the paper's edges.
    Pen on toned paper, image is cropped
  • Building up more detailed inking
  • Detail of owl pellet
  • facial and feature detailing with exposed ribs and muscles
  • A wider shot but still slightly cropped off, with owl intestine, infant skeleton, claws, and twigs and leaves around the edges
  • closer detailing, with ribbons and intestine, and tail features
    the border of the image will have twigs and leaves with small spider-snail creatures crawling around (designed after an eardrum), plus hearts are embedded with the twigs
  • completed!
