You knew this was coming...
I am a very impatient and sloppy artist (perhaps admitting this will heal the problem). This picture is RAW to the point that you could get some kind of disease or worm from it. It is the first and only drawing of these aliens, not even concept sketches nor thumbnails came before this. For this reason I am a little ashamed; most of my work results from this lack of planning and it worries me that this sloppiness will continue. Each artist goes about things in his or hers own way, but there is usually some kind of vision involved. This doesn't just happen once in a while, it is for nearly every piece I've done....sigh.
Perhaps being impulsive is artistic but great artists plan ahead, hopefully my work will mature in the future.
On another note, while making this I wanted to do a scene with the prawn in district 9 but could not find any good pictures of their bodies. If anyone has a nice close up it would be great if you could tell me. I'm sure you all can easily guess what is happening in the scene and was unfortunately forced to do a close up due to the lack of images. Let me just include that I do not hate or dislike this piece; I am pleased with it. My frustration is most out of the approach taken in this picture not that I'm really complaining heavily about the result, just the process.
Overall for a first sketch it came out nice, but I would like to be more thorough in the future. Enjoy. (p.s. take note that he isn't really staring at his work rather his hand....just a little something to think about).
I do not own District 9.
