Alien spirit

This being has been in my head for a while. The eyes should be more cobalt, but I liked the look of the turquoise.

Ancestor spirit

In which the Ancestor performs magic with a street lamp. Same background as here. I need to make time to make these pictures less scribbly.

Deva

On the same background as Desperadontist. I was looking at this picture of Alucard, saw another face on the left, where his hair is flying up (actually two other faces; the other one’s like a goat in profile), and started making a drawing from it. I had been thinking of Lucie Hrušková, and how some of her paintings reminded me of things I’d imagined or seen with my mind’s eye. And this deva came to visit…

Pan, Dim Sim, WIPs

Pan’s ready to roll! Needs to be cast in hard wax so that I can clean off the armature that’s poking through everywhere. I’m assuming it will be best to cast him without the pipes, which are too heavy for his hands to hold at present, then attach them to the hard wax model.

Dim Sim lording it on the shrine:

And a couple of WIPs. Fred goes with Gary (horse guy) and Jenny (rabbit girl). Still needs work on hands and face.

And Sir, who is a horse with a horse whip. Quite a bit to do on him — might even remodel the figure on a larger scale and add some leg.

Leonidas Kryvošej – wow

Via The Cabinet of the Solar Plexus, Czech artist Leonidas Kryvošej. Currents of magic, the occult and alchemy flow through his paintings. Two I especially like are the strange and compelling Child in Time, and Striga (Witch?). Striga looks like she hangs out with the Desperados, Desperadon’ts, and Desperadontists. Kryvošej’s website is here, shared with fellow artist Lucie Hrušková, whose totemic and psychedelic images are inspired by meditation. <3 Drači zámotek (Dragon Cocoon), Hermafrodit and Testament draka (Testament of the Dragon). I admire artists who do original things with their fantastic tendencies. Would like to find/create a more personal language of the fantastic in my own work.

Hats and scarves

Desperado or desperadon’t? (Desperadontists might be lurking somewhere in the backgrind.)
