As its close to Halloween I thought I'd draw some scarier stuff. I figured I might get a little push back from some people that prefer to draw cute stuff in my lesson but I was not prepared for a simple tongue to cause such an issue.
We started with Doodle Club and I revisited a character I drew a few years ago for an adult drawing workshop. I show you how a few simple guidelines make it easy to split open a head. The extra drips going from side to side are a treat.
Next up was Posca Club and the start of #tonguegate. I enjoyed showing people how easy it was to create the effect of a head being torn off and to reinforce that I put the tongue coming out of the bottom of the neck. The problem is not everybody saw it that way. Check out my YouTube video that explains more.
In the second Posca Club of the week I decided to upgrade the split head from our first lesson and add some colour to it. The smiley character makes the horrific scene look a lot more pleasant than it really is.
The third lesson of the week was Doodle Club and this time I decided to take the top off the head and have lots of worms coming out. I think this is a piece that lots of people can resonate with.
We finished up SCARY week with another split head character this time using Spectrum Noir Illustrator markers. I love these pens because they enable you to create some fantastic shapes by blending in shadows.
Hope you enjoyed this weeks lessons, head over to Kofi if you want to see the replay videos or join my waitlist for the live sessions.
