Alphabeasts: B is for Bloody Bones

It's week 2 for the 26-week Alphabeasts project, a blog where artists of all types and stripes contribute a mythical creature or beasty any old way that suits them, as long as it's a new drawing or sketch of a creature whose name begins with the letter for that week. For my part this time: Bloody Bones.

My goal is to mix up the medium or approach as dictated by the beast I choose each week, experiment and explore, but always with an eye on simplicity, design, composition and color. This dude was drawn in Manga Studio, colored in Photoshop. These creatures are open in most cases to wide interpretation. Rather than going with the pile of bones or skeleton in the kitchen cabinet, I opted for the bloody skeleton hovering over a pond. So much fun, and just in time for Halloween!

Check out the cornucopia of creatures by an amazing array of artists at the Alphabeasts archive, and be sure to check in every Monday!
