Herbert West from Re-animator (Jeffrey Combs) for Hath
This one took it’s time, mostly to think which colors to use and the lighting, but I like it. Specially since I love these movies and it was a due fanart, lucky I’d this commission to do it, so pretty cool huh?!
Susan Strong from Adventure Time!
Something I did yesterday, I really wanted to draw Susan Strong all muscular and cute baby faced, its just a still pose, nothing fancy I just love this character. I’ve so many AT fanart unfinished is not funny xD
Yeah yeah, if a women get’s this big probably she ain’t gonna have this face, but this is a drawing right? not a photo just a drawing so skip it.

Two Reclining Nudes, Egon Schiele
This is a volvelle, a medieval device that allowed you to calculate the phases of the moon and the latter’s position in relation to the sun. The dials, with their charming depictions of moon and sun, tell you what you need to know. What’s most remarkable about the device is not so much its crafty nature - it consists of complex layers of rotating disks - but that it is usually fitted inside a medieval book. Some are so bulky that they pierce the adjacent pages. What a surprise it must have been for the medieval reader who thumbed through such a book for the first time. Turning a page, he or she was confronted with an ingenious piece of machinery. A medieval computer.
