Art Monday: Trilobite Boy head sketches



A few quick warm-up sketches this morning, trying to nail down some of Trilobite Boy's anatomy.  Done using ArtRage and my tablet. A couple of times I almost reached for the monitor to smudge the shadows.

Toying with the idea maybe half of his fossil-y face is riddled with cracks. I'm also trying to avoid having the pointy head-shield look like ears.

Maybe I need to sculpt some clay over top of one of my artist mannequins to nail this down further.

Listening to Moby, Covenant and Goldfrapp.
