31 – Leviathan

In My Happy Hats Gallery on September 7, 2012 at 11:06 am


After doing Mechanical Nature I thought I would brave it off and try another illustration directly with marker, I chickened out after drawing a single straight line.  I switched to pencil.

I had drawn the line on a corner of the paper.  Possibilities, right? The thing that came to my mind was tentacles coming out from a flat surface.  Dangerous, powerful, beautiful, scary.  Then as I finished them I realized they were not coming out, but rather were hiding under a serene, impenetrable face.  It was then that the word Leviathan came to mind.  I most surely do not have the full grasp of that word, however to me it means a sea creature of immense size.

I really like this image.  This enormous creature lifting itself from the depths of the sea to watch the moon.  It begs a story to tell us why.  Maybe that’s something I’ll work on later.  A small vignette for this Leviathan.
