Illustration Friday – "Seed"

[8 May 2008 | By | 7 Comment(s) | 4,145 views ]

For the Seed theme, my mind went immediately dark and evil. I present to you “The Bad Seed”. No, no resemblance to my darling son. No, really. Nothing like that ;)
Original pencil sketch at the bottom of the post.

Illustration Friday - Seed
Pencil sketch, colored in Photoshop.

This is actually modeled on the original drawing that I use for the Dabbled logo. It’s of a little girl all cute and victorian, in a similar pose, holding a bloody knife. Yeah, a little creepy, but don’t we all have a dark side? :)

Here’s the original little murder-girl. Which do you like better, her or the bad seed brother? The style is, of course, very different.
what a cute little doll

And here is the original sketch, sketched on the deck of the cabin in the mountains this weekend!

    oh, that movie is so disturbing and also pretty funny. Nice drawings! I think I like the girl a little better, but they both do the job.

    Oh my! If he’s holding a knife in front for everyone to see, what is he holding behind his back?!

    These kids are nice and creepy. Great job!

    This is great. I love it. I definitely have a well developed dark side. I actually thought about submitting a second drawing with the same theme, but ran out of time. That movie was so wonderfully creepy!

    Good job!

    Creepy stuff scares me a bit too much…I’m such a wimp! I can handle these kids though :)
    I love your “Why?” comments at the top right. Very A-D-D-ish and hilarious! (Not that ADD is funny, but you know what I mean.)
