Spawn Sketch and Stitches
Oh my, me doing fan art?! Almost as rare as my foot NOT getting caught in the mouse cord. Still can’t figure out how my foot keeps getting tangled like that… Did this character study sketch of Spawn in my mini sketchbook. This makes like my 3rd or 4th whack at drawing him. I hadn’t drawn this comic book character since early 1999.
It will not, however, be my last Spawn drawing this month. The reason I drew this lil sketch is – somebody commissioned me to do a Spawn piece. I say commissioned like it’s all that fancy & official. What actually happened was more of a special request that I’m not charging for. Normally, I do not do non-commission requests, but I made an exemption for this one.
Did this sketch to just feel out drawing Spawn, since it has been so long since I drew him. Sort of an encouragement pick me up exercise. Up next- thumbnails and layouts for the main piece.
Gotta take it slow, since I had minor surgery on the 4th, and I’m trying not to disturb the stitches too much. Never had stitches before. It’s making me a nervous wreck, especially since it’s in a location that most movement pulls at the spot where the stitches are. Guess I ought to just watch videos online most of this week. Do the healing and resting thing. Especially since I’m the kind of girl who trips over her own pants leg, who will bawl like a baby and feel all kinds of defeated if I manage to tear these stitches. Typing hurts and pulls on them even, how annoying is that?!
Enjoyed the holy heck out of doing this sketch. Must admit I kept forgetting to mind the stitches and shrieking when I reached for a different pencil in a “hey don’t grab stuff that way when you have stitches crazyface!” way. Also, my hypoglycemia made an appearance, when I got the hunger shakes while drawing the mechanical pencil lines at the top of the cape. A hunger signal from my stomach in advance woulda been helpful, but well not like poodles can be in a mariachi band just cuz they want to. *le sigh* And yes I do think sighing in French WAS called for there.
Comment about Spawn, Fan Art, or even stitches below
Spawn is not my character, he was created by Todd McFarlane [Spawn on wikipedia].
