Shadow Skeleton

Something a bit darker I thought I’d share, drawn with various coloured pencils on A4 Natural coloured paper and using a different type of blending technique – baby oil!

Drawing normally with coloured pencil, I shaded areas with necessary colour before using a water brush filled with baby oil to smooth the marks and blend for uniformity.

Shadow Skeleton

Shadow Skeleton: A shadow of my former self perhaps? Or perhaps the bare bones of starting again!

There is a small meaning behind this. The subject itself is actually a wolf skeleton that I’ve put in more of an upright human position. I sometimes represent myself as a she wolf, so this is representing me during this block of sorts that I’m having.

The dramatic lighting and shadow effects represent the double edged sword of being in the dark. One one hand, it’s a difficult and intimidating place to be, but on the other, it’s also the perfect place to meditate and plot a comeback. After all… I may be somewhat struggling, but I’m still here and I’ll get there in the end!

In any event, I thank you for passing by to view my work, hope you enjoy. Cheers for now!
