“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

DIONAEA_commission

[9 x 12" - blue pencil, brush & technical pen, COPIC marker on 100lb/300series bristol board]




Before I got started drawing her, the person who commissioned this image asked me if I could try and infuse some sexiness into the drawing, and that "...nudity will not be frowned upon."

"Sure," I said. "I'll see what I can do."

I'd never been a fan of gratuitous T&A. So instead, I just went for plain ol' T.
