FYI: It took me all the creative energy in me to come up with that title! Appreciate it!
Ok, this was my final project for my "Anatomy for the Artist" course. The assignment was to do a life-size "metaphorical self portrait"... but then she also said we could just "draw whatever we're interested in." I opted for the latter.
So, this drawing is about 7 feet tall, done in charcoal on brown packing paper. I edited it in photoshop to make it blue (which I think looks better). I spent around 10 hours or so on it, and I know it could've came out better if I put more hours in. I'm happy enough with it, though.
The reason I drew a skeleton archer? Well, let's just say I watched a LOT of Lord of the Rings in high school. I credit LotR (the movies) for bringing me from a casual interest in art to a serious interest. Also, if I play any kind of fantasy RPG game, I like playing archer/assassin type characters (for example: Oblivion).
It was a fun project to do. I don't normally put my school work onto DeviantArt, but this one fits. I hope you all like it.
