Deconstruction by kheleksul Deconstruction by kheleksul
And what is fades-flares-erodes-dwindles-smears - or even simply vanishes - into what was.

HAHA! And you thought I could only CG! I don't typically do pencil, but college (lectures) seem to open up a window of opportunity for real media. Enjoy the page from my sketchbook. 8D

-> Graphite 2B, Photoshop (tweaking. Digicam quality sucks! D: )

you sure? the rest of my pages are all small doodle things. Nothing this grand. ;; *emos* I don't have the patience for those kinds of things, since they take up more than one lecture's worth of doodling time. XDDDD

BUT I'LL TRADE YOU SKETCHBOOK PAGES FOR SKETCHBOOK PAGES. :ninja:

This is so cool, Khel. :) It's so detailed and wondrous.

I've a question. When making a piece like this, do you generally work from light to dark? Or visa versa? Or does it vary depending on what you feel like starting with?

kheleksul Featured By Owner Nov 27, 2006
Mmmmm.... typically, I don't work "light to dark" or "dark to light"; I work from the top left corner to the bottom right corner.... so I don't get my hand dirty. XD Pretty much, I don't go back because I just can't be bothered. @@ *such a bad answer* D8!

excuse me, if you have the time to answer this, that would be greatly aprieciated.
Where do you get the ideas from? I see all the detailing and the shading and such a great mood and feel, but i always wonder where other people ge t their inspiration, and then actually portray it. I can never go indepth with a peice, although i know what i would like to see in other peoples works. I have alot to work on, and im hoping it isnt too late...

But yah, that is my question, and this is personally directed at you, how YOU gain inspiration.

Ideas.... they spawn from what happens in my life, you know? Something happens, triggers some emotion or thought..... Or if I want to challenge some particular notion of thought that someone said during the day..... Certain phrases that were said during the day could set me off with a mental image, with which I'd then duplicate later on the computer.... or in my sketchbook, whichever I feel more inclined to do.

Some times, they're just mind farts. In the "what would happen if the Tempter wasn't Lucifer but a mechanical snake?" (An idea I have yet to illustrate. >>!)

OR, you know, it's just me going "hey, wouldn't it be cool if I created this character with dragonfly wings and a beetle carapace?" XD

Thanks for the question, Seage. ^___^ I needed a break from Chemistry, anyway. :D

Thank you very very much for this. This has helped me more than you may think, heh. I love the idea about the tempter, you should get on that, Your style would really compliment that well (the way i see it done in my head.) Im glad i freed you from your Chemistry, i HATE that stuff,too stressful for me, haha.

*rofl* Weeell...... The rest of my sketchbook ain't up to this caliber. Mostly... they're little sketches all over the place because I lose interest so quickly. >> This is, probably, the only image in any of my sketchbooks that I spent upwards of an hour on. XD;;

Thanks, Gothicwench; you really flatter me. ^__^
