Z Grade: Again with the painfully off anatomy. And this, boys and girls, is why life drawing classes are a definite must. This one was a good experiment if nothing else.


Oh isn't that a creative title? Well, as it states, this is Marcus killing some sort of monster. This started out as just a pencil sketch during class and then I decided that I might as well try to color it in Photoshop after I inked it. I've avoided doing a background until I posses the skill to make a cool one. Until then, its going to be white. All things considered, I'm not too ashamed of it, even though I do have a love/hate relationship with his weapon. I must be morbid because the blood was fun! Took me a few hours to do the coloring. Comments are most welcome!

I like his hair alot, shines well. Oddly enough i really like the monster(kobold?) too, I like the way you colored him.

:-) Rachel Reese replies: "Thank you! I like the way his hair came out too. I don't actually know what that monster he is impaling is. I think its just a random creature."
