Jabberwock

Sci fi/Fantasy image by

Here's my take on the famous (or is it infamous?) mythical monster from Lewis Carroll's poem. I have to say, that this was a challenge for me, I don't usually decide to undertake such heavy shading. Fortunately, this picture turned out really great, and I'm glad I kept with it. It took me about two days to design, sketch, draw, then shade it. I used a mechanical pencil, a 3B, and a 2H pencil. And I'd like to draw your attention to all the little scales on the Jabberwock. I tried to take into account, when I was shading, where the light was coming from, and I'd like to know how it looks to those who are more experienced with shading. OK. Considering I've gone on long enough, I leave with my favorite stanza from 'Jabberwock': 'And as in uffish thought he stood, The Jabberwock with eyes aflame, Came whiffling through the tulgey wood, And burbled as it came!'
