Loish study

Loish over on DeviantArt is spectacular at drawing a female face. So I did a quick study of one of her older pieces. It's not a perfect replica and I don't want it to be. I'm just trying to get forms more imprinted in my brain. This helped. Also it was fun to guess the colors.

And applying those studies here-

Adventure Time

Attempted to take the Adventure Time voice actors and make them into their characters. Some more stylized than others. This was fun and interesting.

Flame Princess, Lich, Marceline, Jake, Finn, PB, Prismo, Ice king.

Some horizontal compositions

I tried a few more comps, and came back to this style. broken between Malladus being either up and close, also more monster esq, or back and just being summoned back to power. Flow feels better in these than past ones.

Leader of the pack

I know I wanted a more Verticle layout, but I sure love these horizontal shots. This quick sketch might be fleshed out more. I like the idea but need to apply more interesting aspects and drama.

This one goes out to those meat lovers in the crowd.

Still not right

This one felt just too stiff when rendered. I'll keep looking.

Malladus Redesign

After coloring the last lines a few times, playing with anatomy and separate compositions I just saw too much off the path I wanted. The mood wasn't there, the fear wasn't there. I was just concentrating on the lines and forgot what was important. So with a flash oh inspiration this sketch came out.

Finally getting somewhere, this feels the most right out of all the previous attempts!

This could be it.... maybe!

I know, I know, I've been doing a LOT of sketches for this dang piece. But I think, and I know I've said it before however, this could be it. I feel much more confident in the overall flow and feel. The pose needs some tweaking here and there, sure. I just know it's close. I really did like some of my old ones, and sacrificing Zelda to help the flow does feel like a bit of a bummer. I just feel so confident that this could turn out to be the right one. Who knows.
