Default The beginning

Here's my favorite part of the process. There's just something about the initiation of an idea. I love to see this in other artists: the sketchy possibilities that are about to unfold. I've always been drawn to the deconstructed image in all its expressive glory.

So the only thing here was I decided to forgo the framing with a porch post and decided to develop on the bottom half of the snowman so it gave some movement to what happened (instead of just the Krampus hovering over a wrecked snowman, putting the bottom half over there suggested movement and story a little better to me).

Okay, I was laughing at myself for the bike, (because what kid is going to be riding a bike outside in these conditions?) but I wanted a feeling like the Krampus was destroying things a child loves in a couple of images and maybe he dragged it from out of the garage. I even considered having christmas presents strewn all over but thought it might muddy down the point, probably not.

My first struggle with the idea of having a tongue...

In the end, I went with the tongue to give it more grit.



Hope you've enjoyed. Feel free to comment, critique, suggest, ask questions. Thanks. Good luck with your next competition.
