Hollow? .....Illustration Friday

Last Saturday I was meant to do something I have been procrastinating for about a month: starting to write an essay for the end of the contemporary theory course, but the sketchbook tempted me with the possibility to tweak a meaningless sketch of bendy trees I made recently...
I was having breakfast and multi-tasking in front of the computer, when I thought: ok, I'll add a cavity to one of the trees and that will do for something hollow . Then I added more and more details, and finished just a few seconds before coming across the Flight of the Bumblebee, which would make a good soundtrack for the topic.




Actually, Danny Elfman's Beetlejuice theme could be another good soundtrack for this!

  8. Nice character to this drawing, all twisty and gnarly beyond the way that old trees are normally conveyed. Are there two faces on the right hand side of the drawing, or am I imagining it?

  10. Looks great! I like all the shading, twisting, and gnarling... I could see Yoda living in there.
