Dreams and Fears

Posted Apr 25, 2006, 11:22:42 PM
I thought this one might be a little too disturbing for the kiddies so I'm placing it in the RC.
This is a magazine spread I did for my Conceptual illustration class. The class together is making a magazine based on "Dreams and Fears." I have to tell you my heart wasn't totally in this assignment and I didn't have a lot of time to work on it. I experimented a little with screen tone effects since this is gonig to be a black and white printing. I probably could have done more with the screen tones, but meh, i didn't really feel like puting too much effort into this one.

The drawing on the right is based on the nightmares I sometimes have of spiders crawling on my face. I made it even more disgusting and creepy by having the spiders coming out of my mouth. Eeeww. I hope I don't give anyone nightmares out there.

    I don't know if it -needs- any more work. The simplicity of it is part of the charm. It looks wonderful - like some kind of freaky advertisement, actually... Laughing I do really love the paperdemon side.
