Inktober - Dark "26"( The Nun drawing step by step)

in inktober •  7 months ago  (edited)


Hi guys☺️☺️.
How's the weekend going?? . Hopefully it is as good as mine. I really didn't think I could pull this off at first especially using ink medium. I thought, why not just skip today and take a rest but then, it's a challenge and the result won't be so bad since it's a sketch. I'm really delighted at the outcome. The drawing of the features was pretty quick until I started shading. Man!!!,Valak is the real deal when it comes to darkness😄. I'm talking about her clothes, face and background for this sketch. I used a black ink, Smudger and charcoal pencil for this drawing. As usual, here are the steps taken to creating this sketch


I started from the sketch from the eyes , then to the nose and finally to her cloth


I used the cross hatching shading technique for my shade and also used a little charcoal pencil and Smudger to blend the features on the face


I enhanced the darkness and used my soft yellow pastel to create the iconic glowing yellow eyes of the nun.

Fantastically disturbing illustration.

😄😄.. Now I'm thinking you don't like horror movies

No… I said it was "fantastically disturbing." I love gothic horror movies. I'm not big on gory horror.
