gladiator


Having a posture like this gives him amazing abs. It hurts his back, though and keeps him in a pretty foul mood.

Wow, Mark. Your design and technique is awesome!

Ha ha!

Great picture. A really good design.

Did it just evolve on the paper as you were drawing,or did you have this creature in mind before you put pencil to paper?

Mark -this one evolved out of a haze of abstract brush strokes. At least partially. I think I saw his torso, arm and "tail". The rest I had to manufacture but whenever a happy accident popped it's head out, I hit it with a stick.

Bog - Yup. Crazy brushes sampled from old paintings or splotches or scribbled crazyness. Some with a texture turned on in the brush settings.
