To celebrate one of the best holidays of the year, if not THE best, here's a little zombified Batman action for you good peoples.
This is piece contains a variety of mediums including brush & sumi ink, markers & pens, white acrylic paint and a dash of whiteout pen here and there. It was also done without the use of pencil. No sketchin' allowed.
What comes to mind the most about this piece was my own brains' state of mind. It was done at a moment when I was extremely tired and quite "zoned out" (setup at a convention, FAN CON, in fact). You know that mental state? When you put on two different colored socks, forget to eat lunch or order food you're allergic too.
Something about this drawing dragged my brain out of my own zombie-like state similar to, well, dragging a zombie out of a grave.
Despite my hands being stained with paint and ink it reminded me how much drawing is purely a mental game and that kinda of game can sharpen your thoughts (even when tired) in a way nothing else I know can. So not only was it fun, but it worked better than a 5-hour energy. Now the trick is to have this affect every time I pick up a paint brush. Wonder if works for carving pumpkins too? Guess we'll see...
Happy Halloween everyone!
