I dont usually do these, but im pretty curious, considering I have difficulty describing/defining my own style.
AHAHAHA OH WOW ummmm… There IS a ton of stuff I could technically show, since there’s like at least three (or four?) different versions and I haven’t thrown anything away (and a lot of the stuff is sitting safely in my photobucket account) but I haven’t looked at that stuff in years because it makes me so uncomfortable and embarrassed. They involved parallel dimensions, demons and other misc. creatures and actual factual appearance of the actual factual Satan. And a journey to Hell. And a forced romantic interest. And a cool gay person. Also everything was mothafuckeeen EDGY.
Ahhehahsddfsjd… I actually read shamefully few books anymore. I used to read a lot of - and exclusively - fantasy as a teen but when I grew out of DragonLance and teen fantasy, I never really made the transition to adult fiction but instead veered towards comics and non-fiction. Nowadays I mostly read books for research purposes, but am trying to add more fiction to my plate as well.
So… I’m afraid I can’t recommend anything an avid fantasy reader wouldn’t already know. ^^’
• For my comic pages I currently use very cheap non-brand A4 sized paper I got several blocks at a book store sale. I think it’s about 150g-180g/m² or so. It’s quite alright if you consider the price, but I’m running out and I think I want to grab something of better quality next.
• It’s a bit of both, depending how you look at it. Pahantekijä as it is now is very much planned out. I didn’t start drawing it until I had the entire plot somewhat figured out (I think it took me about eight months of intense brainstorming to put it together). However, it is all born from an idea I had eight-ish years ago and that was very much just something random that then grew into something big. That random idea and Pahantekijä have almost nothing in common anymore, though.
I tried to think of a proper intro to this. Something to slowly let you in what horrors you are about to witness. But I could think of none.
SO FEAST YOUR EYES ON THE FIRST EVER DRAWING OF VILE
(I DON’T KNOW WHY I SUDDENLY WANT TO SHOW IT TO YOU.)
SO EDGY. MUCH ORIGINAL. I was a SAD EDGY EMO TEEN RAWR. Accessories maek OC uniQ right?
To be absolutely fair tho, I had bronchitis and probably 38,5 °C fever when I drew this and was just amusing myself by drawing stupid nonsensical shit. Buuut then he kinda sorta became a character that kinda sorta stuck. (And this is also the drawing that started a domino effect that eventually lead to Pahantekijä.)
Also fun fact: he was originally meant to be really short. And a Evil Villain™.
Now you know my embarrassing roots.
