IF: Myth The creatures.

On a slow day I found myself looking through one of my old school journals 
when I came across a few pages in which I had covered , head to toe, with a doodle 
creature I had made up while not working. This creature was pretty much just a rabbit-like thing looking over a fence or line on the paper.  

These are some doodles ideas I tried after finding the old school pictures. For some reason, I've given the creatures a more fearful attitude. It just seemed the best way to go. 
In the top one I've gone for a zombie horde theme.  (I've been reading World War Z)

The second one down I've clearly just ripped off the Phantom Menace poster, which if you've never seen, features Anakin  standing outside his home with a shadow of Darth Vader. 

The third one is pretty much self explanatory. "ITS BEHIND YOU"!!!

In the last one, which I enjoyed the most, a guy is trying to hide in a dark cupboard- only to be found by the creatures. It reminds me of the lawyer in Jurassic Park who leaves the kids to hide in the toilets- only to be found by the T-Rex. (He was probably my most hated film character as a kid).

IF: Edge

If you go down to the woods today..

I'm a massive fan of John Howe's work so when I got one of his books for Christmas, I couldn't help but attempt a drawing in his style. Problem being that his sketches look a lot easier than they really are plus being left handed meant that I was forever drawing and smudging the picture, which made what was meant to be a quick sketch, a week long ordeal. However I do like how it finally turn out and I guess it was a good learning curve.

 I hope you enjoy it!
