I’ve had this idea for YEARS and have never drawn it before, so I figured I’d scribble it down. I think I want to redo this with either some kind of draft horse or make it super morbid with cute fluffy Shetland ponies. I’m undecided.
I also don’t know what it’s called when a creature has two bodies that share a head. Two heads is polycephaly. Polycorpaly? (Mixing Greek and Latins roots???)
Oh man, I can’t WAIT to see where you take this! Draft horses or Shetland ponies have my vote either way. One of each would be crazy! There is something fascinating about taking creatures so beautiful and making them unsettling. LOVE this concept!
I’ve got the term you’re searching for: craniopagus. Usually refers to twins. I’d watched a documentary about twin girls in a craniopagus parasiticus relationship, where one twin was not fully developed and depended upon the other for nourishment.
Racer is dead.
Ever since you found yourself on this foggy land of hills and empty fields, by a path that leads up into the clouds, the Lookouts have been there. The Lookouts have hounded you and your friend Marla’s every step. They act like dogs. They look like dogs, almost. And they’ve never harmed or threatened you. All they do is watch, with those emotionless, unblinking camera-heads. Perhaps that’s the worse thing about them.
And now Racer—Racer, that’s what Marla calls her favorite one—Racer is dead.
The question is not who, or how, or why. You killed him; you snapped his metal neck; you did it because he scared you, late at night after you’d awoken from a nightmare filled with humming wires and baying dogs. You didn’t mean to. It was an accident.
The question is this: what do you do now?
I think I uploaded these a while ago but that was a while ago.
The Lookouts was the name of an adventure game I conceptualized for my sort of “thesis project” in college. I still really, really like it and I want to do something more with it one day. It has its own website with all the art and some more information, plus inspirations, and if you’d like you can visit that, too.
Finished inks for a thing, now I’m gonna color it.
I have new-found respect for Spidey artists everywhere; those webs are a tricky, tricky thing, and it’s so easy to get them “wrong”, though what exactly “wrong” is is a hard thing to define.
Oh well. Onward!
This is excellent, Cristian! I love your use of varied line width. Spidey’s expression is perfect. :D
Added some photography to my Society 6 shop! I hope you guys enjoy nature and plant photography as much as I do. :D There’s also still free world-wide shipping going on for the entire site at the moment!
I probably won’t add too much more photography, I’d like to keep things mostly on drawing side of the art world, but photos I’m particularly fond of will go up occasionally as prints only. Possibly a few other items if they are requested, but I’d rather keep things to prints for now.
