It's week 125 of the splinterlands art contest and I made an art which is my submission for this round. I recreated the cursed slimeball, mine has hands and it's able to fly as well, don't come in contact with the sticky stuff because you'll scrub for ages, this is according to the lore on splinterlands. Whenever I visit the site to pick a card to recreate, I always get stuck reading the lores because they are so interesting and funny sometimes.
I did my pencil sketch as usual, I had to come up with an idea and it's usually hard, that's actually the most difficult phase.
Pen and paper for sketching
Adobe illustrator cs6
Here are some of the steps I could capture
