I tried to watch Supernatural tonight, but it was Season 1’s episode “Bugs” and it made my skin crawl so much I had to disappear onto the computer and distract myself with some messing around on an old sketch.
My last attempt at this picture had been bugging me a little because I overcomplicated the wing design. Adding grey keeps it truer to the bird design it’s based on (Northern Mockingbird), but it loses a lot of the simplicity I liked about my other digital illustrations. So I decided to strip it down and bring it back to black and white.
The brush settings I’ve been using (Alias Sketchbook Pro’s ink brush) have been giving me ‘blobbier’ lines than I like. I’m going to have to go hunting for a different brush and hopefully my next piece will have much cleaner, sharper lines.
But for now, I’m gonna go back to watching Sam and Dean and a bunch of creepy crawlies.
