Illustration Friday - SIMPLE


Had an old piece of artwork in the archive that seemed appropriate for the theme this week. This is a character I call "Spaghetti Head"... all drawn with a #2 pencil. While it is true that the overall drawing seems pretty detailed and complex, it is also true that the entire idea for this drawing came from an object as simple as a spaghetti strand. A whole bunch of lines and a whole bunch of shading added to the simple spaghetti equals this lovely face. This was originally intended to be used as a design for a halloween mask. Who knows, I might still go ahead and use him for that idea.

Well, the idea might be simple, but this is pretty complex...excellent work. I think the simnplest part was probably not drawing it just for IF:> It would make an extremely scaru mask!
