with teeth by len-yan with teeth by len-yan
this one's a bit more rough than what i usually post.
based on a photo of ted bundy that flashed for a moment on one of the real crime documentaries i've been watching a lot of these days.. the face is obviously different but i really liked how strong and intense that particular frame was so i decided to play around with it a bit.
for all i know this might have also been prompted by my recent dentist visits.
title from a song by nine inch nails.

i've spent some more time rendering the hands, fixing the face structure and changing a couple more things that have been bothering me about this work. i think it looks better now.

happy early halloween!

Zdecydowanie jedna z Twoich najlepszych prac! (moim zdaniem)
Na prawdę bardzo mi się podoba styl w jakim tworzysz. W komentarzu opisującym scenę, która Cię zainspirowała, użyłaś słowa "intense", ale muszę przyznać, że z tej konkretnej grafiki tak mocno zieją emocje, że ona sama mogłaby robić za definicję słowa "intense" I salute you!  (cóż, pozostałam przy angielskim zwrocie, bo nie przychodzi mi do głowy polski odpowiednik, który by był w stanie wyrazić pełnię znaczenia tej angielskiej wersji. Nasze "intensywny" wydaje mi się tu jakieś trochę zbyt płytkie =P (Razz) )
Wyraz twarzy, te zaczerwienione akcenty, po prostu wow... Im dłużej się patrzę tutaj na oczy i ich wyraz tym bardziej zaczynam się bać tej postaci. (W sumie biorąc pod uwagę fakt na kim było to wzorowane, to chyba dobrze, nie? Giggle )
Mówi się, że oczy są zwierciadłem duszy i muszę powiedzieć, że tutaj zdecydowanie udało Ci się to uchwycić!

zawsze najpierw zwracam uwage na dlonie aczkolwiek co najbardziej przykulo moja uwage tutaj to te oczy i ich wyraz. jest w nich tyle emocji. poza tym bladoniebieskie zyly (wybacz nie mam polskich znakow :l ) sama kolorystyka i kadr tworzy niesamowita niepokojaca atmosfere. zzera mnie ciekawosc historii kryjacej sie za ta scena.
i wspolczuje dentystycznej inspiracji :/

Kawał dobrej roboty! Mam tylko jedną uwagę: zęby są stanowczo za małe, powinny być ze 1,5 - 2 razy większe.

Looks great! Sometimes a rough-sketch style is even better than a fully rendered piece. This is definitely beautiful!

Is this 'cause halloween's around the corner? :D Interesting subject to draw, but a little macabre at the same time.  It's good mind you- I'm not putting it down or anything.  Dentist.  I haven't been in a while.  I have at some point this year.  Check up time might be approaching soon...

wow this is so intense and vivid! I really love the style and just the whole way you soften up your traces just enough!  I hope to one day learn how to do that, to stop being perfectionist and let loose the hand, and to get a hold on how to know when and where to stop adding/changing things!  That's what I admire the most in artists like you!  That perfect notion of when something is enough and ready <3  / don't know If this makes sense but It's just how I see it. Anyway, congrats on this, its gorgeous!
