Hi all, greetings!
This week, I decided to take part in this challenge after a while of being off. So today, I bring you another entry to the @Splinterlands contest week 252 and I chose "EVER-HUNGRY SKULL" as my character/card to work on.
This skull is strange. It has a disdain look from its two eyes with lots of nails affixed on it. There is this long one that passed through one part of its ear section to other side with a few blood stain.
I just wanted it to look fearful so I introduced red to it instead of dark blue. I also gave the background a black and red effect while giving a section faint which shows where light is coming from.
At a later stage, after the outline, I decided to add another broken section above the forehead. Some broken sections gave rise to a heart and a cross sigh at the forehead.
The work was done with AutoDesk sketchbook application and aided with an S-pen. My step by step processes are below:
The first step was to make the outline sketch
Then, I started adding shades
I processed with the shades by using scribble method
Here, I was almost done
At this stage, I introduced color. Firstly, I worked on the background. I made the left side darker thank the right side thus giving rise to negative space
At this stage, I introduced those danger colors to the eyes and other parts
And here is the final result
