Sketch Challenge #04: Ghosts

sketchchallenge04

 

This shouldn’t be a surprise for anyone! As a child, I had an irrational fear of ghosts and seeing them in reflections of the bathroom mirror! I refused to shut the door when I took baths or showers. In cases when I had to shut the door, I would sing to myself. :p I’m not sure where it all started? I think hearing stories about bloody mary and watching Candyman when I was 9 didn’t really help. Then I actually had my first paranormal experience when I was kid as well. Since then, I’ve had a fascination with spirits and paranormal activity. This of course, still freaks me out to this day. But, my curiosity for the topic has me seeking for more.

SKETCH CHALLENGE #04

oh man.. OH MAN…

I thought I got over my childhood fear of the Boogieman from the ghost busters cartoon… until I looked for a reference for this contest! I painted this pic only after a quick glance of a picture from the show; then I immediately had to shut off my browser

Going to leave my closet open now… else the boogieman’ll get me! D:

Medusa! I was a huge fan of the movie Clash of the Titans, and by far my fave/scariest scene was with Medusa. So here she is, using those eyes!

Sketch Challenge #03: Penumbra

sketchchallenge03sm

 

My submission for this week’s challenge! I was inspired by everyone making fun of me about the “Shadow People“. They’re real! They’re ghosts/spirits… but they look like shadows! :O Anyway, I decided to base my aliens off these shadows. They’re not fully solid beings and rely on armor to create a physical form. They emit a bright blue light through their eyes and organs… They’re called “Umbras” and their home planet is “Penumbra”. 8D

This challenge was definitely not a topic I’m comfortable with as most my art consist of pretty girls or just cute characters. :p So it was interesting to try something new and explore a different part of art I’m not familiar with. I would definitely venture with this sort of art again! I’m looking to improve and expand my skills anyway…

Quick Paint

jillwip

Practicing my painting. Did this in about 40 mins or so on one layer! Getting the rough colors down, then go into cleaner rendering. :3 It’s amazing how quickly you can improve by just doing it often. Just about a year ago I didn’t think I would be doing this much painting. I used sketch, then spend hours on inking and then paint under the lines. I find inking really slow and time consuming. I do like how it looks, but with the lack of time I have these days, I rarely do it. :’D

Sketch Challenge 2

Tentatively titled -“Missing: Ash Ketchum” or “Pikachu Chews”

It was getting late.

It was day two into the massive search, but there was still no sign of the missing 10 year old pokeman trainer. “We’ll find your son,” Officer Jenny said to the tearful Mrs. Ketchum. Suddenly, if on queue, Jenny’s Arcanine started woofing and tugged the officer roughly. “He’s got a scent! This could be it!” Officer Jenny exclaimed. Mrs. Ketchum’s heart skipped a beat as they followed the officer’s Arcanine into the heart of the Palette Town forest.

Mrs. Ketchum hardly noticed how dark and foggy it became. She wasn’t aware of the branches scratching her skin or the chill of the air. She was only aware of the hope her son was still alive. “Ash! Ash! I’m here!” she shouted, “Where are yo–”

Her heart stopped.

All the air evacuated from her lungs. She just could not believe her eyes. Only now, did she see the tatters of Ash’s clothing strewn like bread crumbs on the forest floor and the large coagulated splatters of blood. It was the last thing Mrs. Ketchum saw before she dropped her flashlight and Pikachu lunged.

Pardon any errors in the above quick write. Self-proof read only with questionable gaps in Pokeman knowledge. And… that’s the only thing I’ll apologize for.
