Another gorgeous one, #33, Gaap. This one had issues with translation: I got two sources, both of whom had translated the latin differently, and the latin itself is ambiguous because it’s handwritten. So he either appears “when the sun is in the southern signs” or… “in the form of a doctor”. I went with the latter because how the hell do you illustrate the former, come on.
hahaha the amount of work I’m putting into this is ridiculous. let me tell you how irritating I find the Dictionnaire Infernal ho ho ho
I promised you previews!
This is #34: Furfur. He’s a hart with a fiery tail what does all storms and stuff. Basically; should be a Pokemon.
I’m doing a mixture of full colour (like Marbas) and duochrome, like Furfur here. Sometimes I just add a single marker colour in for accents if I’m bored, so it’s a good mixture of nice things. I, er. Some are turning out quite gory but what did you expect from me doing a thing with a pen. You’re welcome.
SURPRISE! It’s a preview of the Goetic demons illustrations! I am nearly half-way through doing them, and therefore nearly half way towards having a book to print.
This means that crowdfunding will happen very, very soon. I hope you’re as excited as I am. Actually, I hope you’re not because if more than one person was as excited as I am, the economy would collapse and capitalism would crumble and hospitals would be overloaded because of all the exploding and going on fire, etc. etc.
so like I hope you’re stoked, but not like, super super danger-to-yourself-and-others stoked. let’s keep it real here people
anyway, this is Marbas! He “causes and cures disease”. What, like… at the same time? He must be fun at parties.
I went to the raptor rescue centre and drew rude birds all day. My favourite is all of them. They were all so rude but for one (them falcon up top there). The little owl was the best peep. There was also a grey eagle buzzard, which is just the most gorgeous animal. birbds
I accidentally a Metalocalypse, I’m sorry
(I really fancy Nathan) (help)
So I’m drawing Goetic demons at the moment because of reasons and this is my favourite :) Andrealphus! He appears in the form of a peacock with “trumpets and much shouting” and then teaches you about astronomy and then turns you into a bird. And then he leaves! bye
amazing, what an inspiration
If you’re not in love with my gorgeous favourite darling void horror, Babylon, then I don’t know what to tell you.
more study time, this time wolf heads drawn from photography and not from being made up in my head! they have way rounder foreheads than I think!
did a biro-on-card tonal study of …ugh, some photo on tumblr of a dogmouth with a gold tooth, can’t find it now - but anyway I was quite pleased with it and I rarely do studies because I’m unprofessional and awful
"Lucian, are you ever going to stop drawing your Misdreavus you had when you played Pokemon Pearl like two years ago?"
I made a hat. This is my Whore of Babylon headdress! It has white lilies, poppies and some black grapes, so hopefully I’ve got everything symbolically covered, there. And who doesn’t like boys in flower crowns. It’s also going to have a rosary in there because ahhaha “taste”, what is “taste”
duckface lol you’re welcome
a friend was babysitting one of her friend’s doggies and posted photos on tweetar. the dog is a lovely greyhound called Silver and I just think she’s gorgeous, so I drew her. rubbery bananahound.
