Painted skin:sketches

I drew up another sketch. i know you guys like the other one but i could not get rid of the "totem poll" symmetry and keep the same composition, so i drew this =) not as "romantic" as the other ones, still keeping his chest open, and i shortened the canvas.

These two are just tonal studies, one where she has pointed fingers and the other with normal. i am a little concerned with the ribs not being shaped all the way around, but i do enjoy the "zipper" affect it creates. tell me what you think =)

Did some revisions, slightly different positioning of the two:

This version is the newest one, where i added the fly whisk that supposedly wards off evil spirits, wasnt sure if i should add another element besides the two people.


  1. Hmmm, I think I like the second to the top one the best! It shows off the elements of the piece in a nice balanced way (Although I wish her arm behind his head was darker like in the top one).

    His heart glowing is my favorite part :3

  2. I have to agree with Erin. I like the look of the wispy smoke flowing all around in the head and background. Keep the glowing heart too! Can't wait to see the finished.

  3. I agree with the above two comments, but the third one (without the wisk) I think I like a little more. I really like the movement in the smoke behind them, and I think the wisk halts it.
