sketchbook series3 The Lullaby by ShawnCoss sketchbook series3 The Lullaby by ShawnCoss
The 3rd page of the "sketchbook series"

This one actually has a name "The Lullaby"

"With the rhythmic chatter of it's teeth, along with the hollow drumming of the skulls against it's horns, a sound mistaken as musical notes can be heard within the darkness of the surrounding forest.

The parents were unaware of such sound as it was too primitive to be picked up by ears of age and experience. It filled the ears of those still new to the world, fresh and pure of the world's noise and atmosphere....it called the children....it engulfed the children....it hypnotized them.

One by one, the children awoke from their slumber, and drifted towards this sound of unknowing danger, and as they drew closer, the sounds of the rattling lullaby that captivated their minds, was replaced by the sounds of water running and with what could only be described as boots stuck in mud...if the children knew what that sounded like...

It was merely the uneaten organs and flesh of past children that The Lullaby had not yet consumed"

He appears to be eating a baby.

Silly monster.

Babies are far too chewy.

Really outstanding, so much energy and detail!
But I can help myself, that free hand is rather messed up as if it have crayons for fingers :]

haha the more I look at it the more I see what you are seeing. I was trying to give it the impression that it's fingers were bent, hence the shadowing of the lower phalanges.

One might call that a very bold move my friend :)
I mean it looks really hard angle to work with and without shadows those fingers would look like stubs..and you can't really fade away them, because that would take away part of the depth of the body.

Bare in mind that I'm no critic, not even an advanced artist like yourself so I'm rather unsure how relative my observation of your work is to you, however I still feel obligated to comment..
