Another picture based on a story that I probably won’t ever actually tell. Still, this was a lot of fun to draw.
I will never understand how anybody got anything drawn before Google Image Search became a thing. Seriously, I had to look up “helmets,” “antlers,” and “mansions” over the course of working on this picture. And you wouldn’t believe how many times I’ve Googled “moon” over the last several years.
So since my preferred medium is pen and paper, I struggle when I need to fill in large areas of blank paper with solid black. I can sometimes fill in with a lot of hatching, but that didn’t feel appropriate on this picture. So I broke down and used a Sharpie… and I still get a high when I open my sketchbook.
