Sabbra Cadabra by Cataclysm-X Sabbra Cadabra by Cataclysm-X
I know I'm a bit late, but...

Happy Halloween everyone!
:devilish:


This is a drawing I've been working on between the commissioned works. Feels good to be productive.
For the lack for an original title I chose a Black Sabbath song.


The pose was based on an original stock photo, called Wrath IV, and was taken from ~yellow-stock!
Gave it my own twist, and I changed the face and lots of other thingies until I liked it. I know it still has plenty of mistakes but hey, at least I'm trying no?

Didn't add a background because I liked the strong Black and White contrast :D so instead I added subtle shading like with my guitar drawing:

</shameless self-promotion>


Whoaaaaaaa :zombie:


Not much else to say at the moment. It's past 3AM and I'm quite tired. :yawn: Then why am I still awake? Because I'm nuts.

Lemme see, what else should I write before I go to bed... right:


Stuff I used!
- H, HB, B & 2B mechanical pencils
- 4B and 6B regular pencils for dark areas
- 2 red Van Gogh pencils
- tissue & tortillion for blending
- dirty tortillion for shading
- A4 Hahnemühle Nostalgie sketchbook paper
- reference image

Spent about 20 hours in drawing this, oh boy! :psychotic: yessss


Sweet dreams...

Het is ook altijd heel mooi om daarmee te experimenteren., bijv met horror-plaatjes kan het soms dus heel mooi uitkomen als je alleen rood en de rest zwart-wit laat zoals je met deze hebt gedaan. Het geeft meer een gevaarlijk gevoel aan bepaalde tekeningen :D

I LOVE the hair in this one! It's the first thing that popped out at me when I took a look at this picture. I saw it and said, "Whoa!" The delicate and precise way you shaded it, plus the contrast with red, gave an AWESOME touch. The rest of the picture is great, too. Keep up the good work!
