Peaceful in the Dark

OK! So I finally did my submission for the Squash n Sketch blog Dreams and Nightmares theme... 

I'm not sure if this was a dream or a nightmare. The situation and everything was scary: Here's this girl from a ball or prom or gala, and she's dead, and she's got a giant hole in her head, and she's sitting on this dock in the dark and the cold waiting for something.... but I love her. Having this dream I felt love and peace and softness and tender sadness, so it's a bit of both. This girl suffered something tragic, but here she is in peace, just waiting by the dark water.

You might remember her from an earlier sketch post , as seen below.

I spruced her up a bit in photoshop and added a background. At first I wasn't sure if I should add a glow but she needed something since she was drawn on white and colored pencil.  I think it worked out pretty nicely.


  1. How would you feel about doing some concept art for a short?

    The style you have done in this is perfect and fits with what I'm looking for!!

  2. Aww thanks dude! Right now I'm swamped on a project til mid October but thanks for the sentiment! =D

  3. I know how you feel. I'm going to be bogged down in schoolwork and doing this short, that time always seems to disappear.

    If after mid October be interested then, that would be great. Perhaps even some animation work. One can never have too many animators.

    The drawing is really great though and something I'm drawing a lot of inspiration from. :-)
