“No Face” – Day Two From 2-27-19

More progress on “No Face” from my newest collection of Studio Ghibli drawings with a dark, fantasy art twist.

This might be my final day for a bit on this one before moving on to the next one. Here I reinforced some shadows and added detail to the skin texture of the creature. Though many of these legendary animated films have a dark edge on their own, with this particular piece I wanted to take the spirit at its darkest moment when it had been luring the bathhouse workers with fake gold only to consume them in order to get closer to the protagonist, Sen. I wanted to capture the spirit in its angry, hideous form and to differentiate it from the way the movie depicted it, I emphasized a fleshy, oozing skin, almost alienlike.
