the dead- WIP

working up one last dark piece for the autumn season... The Dead.  It was a challenge to mimic a burlap type texture convincingly but after a few test tries... I'm happy with the result so far. We will see how this goes as it progresses.  Thanks for stopping by. -db

Look at Frosty Go... Holiday Card Design 2016

Sometimes they just come out of dreams.  This one woke me up and i had to sketch it right then and there or else I would lose it in my sleep.  Glad I did that.

Bleak Midwinter WIP 2

Getting close to calling this drawing done... I have no idea what to do with it after the snow is done... I have tried a few colorings and no good solutions yet.  We shall see. Perhaps some time will reveal a solution.
