Hi guys, today I have a special treat for you all that took me many hours to draw and turn into a lesson. Today, I will be showing you how to draw death, in the form of, what else?, the Grim Reaper. The reason for my decision to do a lesson on death, is because I watched a movie called “Legion”, which was sort of disturbing, and realistic at the same time. Now, in the movie, there was an angel named Michael, and he rebelled against the war between heaven and earth. God called a war on all mankind, and because of this, angels came down from the heavens and possessed the bodies of regular people that where weak willed in nature. Unfortunately, I didn't get to watch the whole flick because I was distracted by a bunch of nonsense that was going on in my house. But, needless to say, I will be watching the rest of the movie full force today. Death is a character that I made up, and he is supposed to be the one being that collects life from those who are due to die. I was inspired to use the image of a grim reaper because my mother said that a reaper kneeling with his scythe resting on his shoulder as his hand disengages from the soul that he is taking would make a powerful picture. I tried to envision what she tried to explained to me, and I also searched the net to get some inspiring ideas. The sketch took me around an hour, and drawing it out took another two hours. I love the way the final line art came out looking, and I can almost guarantee that you guys will love this drawing lesson, and to keep it easy to find, I placed it in the tattoo section of Dragoart because I know a lot of members, and visitors spend a lot of time in this section. Anyway, I guess that does it for me, or at least for this tutorial. I will be back with more drawing fun in a few so try and stay tuned in to see what else I have in store. Peace out people, and have an exciting, and fun drawing day.
