This week we continue our with spooky subject matter, which is a bit of a shame because I forgot I was doing that, and did a really nice watercolor landscape that will have to wait until November to see the light of day. Then when it hit me that I was supposed to do Halloweeny art, I grabbed some paper for pens and some grey-tone and reddish brush pens and knocked out this quick sketch of a tombstone in about forty minutes.
This is based on a tombstone design that I had in a folder sating back to when I did an animated music video for Under The Radar’s cover of “Eleanor Rigby” back in 2009.
I did this straight with markers, looking at the basic shape in the tiny jpg, and then rushed through with a simple background because I was running short on time and useable fingers. I’m fairly happy with the way it turned out. I did crop it a bit and tinkered a little with the color temperature after scanning it.
