Splinterlands Art Contest Week 254. Aquatus Fanart with ink on paper
This is my entry for this week´s contest.
First I drew the the sketch of how I would draw this character drawing the guide lines for the pose.
Then I started drawing the character Aquatus on top of the guidelines with my mechanical pencil, I tried to draw his face to look like the reference as much as possible but It turned out to have a kind of psycho face which I loved it.
The reference does not have the lower part of his body so I started improvising a little bit with his leg and clothes.
Here I had all the sketch complete with some details and add a fin on his leg because I thought if he has on his arms he should have one on his legs, I was almost tented to do this drawing with only my mechanical pencil becuase I think It looks so cool like this, but I wanted to take the risk to do it with ink.
Here is the outline of the whole drawing with ink.
Up to this point I just started adding the shadows on his skin with ink.
Here you can see more details of shadows drawns with the black ball point pen.
You can see those details here closer done as vertical hatching.
And as for the final touch I draw a background as if he were running out a waterfall ready to finish his enemies out
I hope you like it as much as I do.
I choose this character for my drawing because I have always love drawing this kind of sea creature like tritons, mermaids and such, so this one fits my preferecen really good.
