A Life Too Busy Drawing Demonic Stuff
Drawing Demons And Other Dark Art
Drawing demons and horror stuff has always appealed to my artistic side and is has become a learning journey to draw in an adequate comic book art style. Over the many years I have been around on this planet, I have been drawing for as long as my feeble mind can remember, usually I gravitate to the more darker side of art, such as demons and horror, but at the moment I'm attempting to draw a mammoth collection of my own self contained graphic novel story ideas, these are intended as single stand alone stories that would and could be made into films, if they were to be picked up by producers and even directors(hint, hint).
I imagine this to be my life's work as everyone should have something to aspire to, as I do other things to try and earn money to pay for the necessary software to create this stuff and plus it's what I have always been into, drawing for me is about entertainment for me as well as hopefully anyone who will eventually see my long worked on comic book ideas.
But back to the reason behind this little rant, obsessive drawing disorders are common the world over as well as other disorders, which I won't go into but I will say that drawing for me is one of the absolute best things in the world to do.
You simply have to find what you draw the most and make it into an obsession, go the extra mile and become an expert at what you love to draw, hell even make money out of it, get your name plastered all over the Internet featuring your artwork, I once knew of someone who used to collect bogies in a jar so these kinds of foolish people just carry on with your own world saddo tactics and let us people who want to get somewhere in life just get on with it.
Drawing for me, means doing something that I may have been meant to do or just fell into doing by being bored as a child I don't know, but I often think that without drawing and the creative expression, my life would be utter rubbish by now!
If I don't get to draw something, anything in any given day then I do get cranky, oh yes! I see drawing as a way to gather my thoughts and ideas and collect them altogether into one sketch session to archive away to be used another day.
An Interest In The Horror Genre
Whenever I think back, it's the horror genre that has inspired me to make drawings of monsters and other creatures and Demons always come first to mind when I start to draw, that and Skulls.
Horror movies for me have been the main inspiration, but horror novels and comics lately have blown my mind. It's the horrific nature of drawing horror and drawing demons that inspires me to create the best concepts and drawings I can.
Often what happens when I ever think I'm going to draw something nice and cute it always descends into a horror drawing. Take the drawing below, believe it or not it originally started out as a nice Mermaid drawing, but then quickly decayed into the Demon creature you see here.
