Artwork Description

2002 - 2003. 5-3/4inch x 8-1/4inch. 0.3, 0.5 & 0.7mm mechanical pencil. A Religeous being of unknown religion. The basic insperation to do a religious alien piece came to me from a painting by Wayne Barlowe entitled 'An Elytracephalid'.

Cheers Alistair, Yes One of Wayne Barlow's pictures is the basic insperation for this picture. I would have mentioned it in the description but I couldn't find the title of the Barlow piece [red crustation kind of priest being] and I was rushing to get to work =]- I will edit the desc. when I find my copy of the Barlow book tonight.

Really good concept and use of imagination, I really like the texture on the wood too Smile

There's a small chance I'd digitally colour it but it's more likely that I'd use the drawing as concept material for a larger painting.
But now that you've sown the idea into my head.....=]-

cheers Marley,
Glad you like the background. I've kept it ambigious on purpose though (is the cleric sat there due to free will or is it imprisoned in a crate? etc.)

Thanks for the comments Chris. Yes, you've hit the nail on the head in that I do consciously go for the documentry style of drawing mainly because I get so eager to start a piece once I get an idea that I neglect to spend a lot of time working on composition issues.
In this piece I did try and get that 'photo from the third world' look but usually 'flat' composition is me rushing that stage of the drawing =]-

Your renderings are always so clear, it's as if your drawingas are really just documentary, photo snapshots of other creatures and worlds. Smile

Art at its best.
