This is an in progress piece I am currently working on. Our shop guy, Crispy Mike, took a cross-country graffiti and sign painting trip, and returned from his adventure with this scary goat/sheep cross breed skull. At first I just wanted to score this thing from him, but when I realized that's not going to happen, I talked him into getting it tattooed instead.
The next step was to take this thing home and get some good photographs of it.
I set up to take a few pics using a warm and cold light source, to add to the creepyness factor, I think that worked....
I took that photo, and started to work on the drawing, Mike is a big fan of biomech, so I figured these horns go really well with it, kind of a 'artforms in nature' look to it, mixed with more smoother, metallic forms for contrast, and in the end, I added teeth and bony jawlike formations to them to kinda tie everything together. this is my line drawing:
These are after a couple sittings, maybe 2 longer ones, and a mini sitting. All the color parts are healed, the black shading is fresh.
