Gods and Monsters! (part 3)
Posted by eyeofthehurricane99 on February 19, 2009
Last time, I showed you some gods sketches…
Here’s the finals on a few of them.
I originally was going to give him a ‘Pan flute’ (which is named after him- duh!) but I didn’t like the way it looked in his hand. I dig that he’s sort of just a naughty, hairy little goat boy here.
I wanted a scene reminiscent of the ‘Pastoral’ scene from Disney’s Fantasia. He’s always shown very at one with nature, etc. so I added a flower, some grass a much too happy little bunny.
However, after seeing it, I think it was a bit more inspired by the following image (which used to be my profile picture for a while…)
Here’s Ganesh- such a happy guy!
I decided to skip having him with a mug of booze- thought somebody might get offended. I did, however, stick with the bag of peanuts- y’know like the ones you get from the circus.
I mean, c’mon, god or not… if you have the head of an elephant you’re going to really crave a bag of peanuts every so often. You just couldn’t resist!
I also wholeheartedly stole the rainbow background I mean… “added the rainbow background in homage to”… an artist whose work I own and really admire- Alice Dubois!
I own the piece entitled “Ghost Finch” on that page- go buy some of her awesome stuff!
Next time… more gods and monsters!
