The Eyes of Madness


Every now and then I will stumble across an image that inspires me. Today I was looking at a website that had an advertisment for a sculpture of that big red demon from the movie "Legend". The ad was just a close up of his eyes. It inspired me to take a shot at reproducing it digitally, using my latest love- my Wacom Graphire tablet. The left eye is tilted a little too much, but this was fun to do. Just another exercise to help me improve my digital painting skills. Don't know if I ever even watched "Legend" all the way through, but that devil dude was a great looking character for sure.

That looks great, Patrick!

I love how the highlights give it that 'wetness'.

Some really nice stuff.

You have a cool collection of monsters. I also like the Jango Fett.

Patrick, you'd probably like visually the Eurovision song contest winner... Monster Rock band called Lordi. Just google Lordi... or something.
