Of Wolf and Man w/ Lilith






UPDATE: Of Wolf and Man is dedicated to Metallica. I drew that image for the Supernaturals book coming out soon and had to color it.

I colored a very recent illustration I did for a Supernaturals [ TV show ] book for Harper Colllins. I tried to get that old skool wood cut or turn of the century book illustration look going with this piece because it's meant to look like it's from an old text.

In black and white I think it comes across quite well. The color updates the piece nicely.

Very nifty! It DOES feel woodcut-ey and the border is awfully nicely done. Another style for your checklist!

That's the best cut off of that album, although nothing dethrones Master of Puppets...

"Master, master, wheres the dreams that Ive been after?
Master, master, you promised only lies
Laughter, laughter, all I hear and see is laughter
Laughter, laughter, laughing at my cries"

Rock on Dan!

I always liked 'Through The Never' as the last, definitive metal song they ever did, but this one was good too. And you know I love both these pieces. Rock on my barbarian brother!

Mr. Dan You are my favorite drawer of the ladies with the bird feet. Can you draw me with the bird feet? Very big ladies bird feet please. thanks you. I'm sure. I'll donate money to charity in your name. Save the ladybrids or someting important of animals and so forth. Or maybe we could get some wings for the whales so they could fly a little bit out of the water so like when they get stranded and all they can just fly back in the water with out haveing to wait around getting sunburned for handcock to rescue dem you see I'm sure. I hate sunburned whales. I hate that. Maybe if they had ladies bird feet they could hop back to from da water where they came except they are pretty heavy with out the water between them and the sand floor keeping them floating an all. So when can you send the drawing of me to me?

BILL: WTF?!?!? I'm dying over here! Have you been hitting the scotch tonight? You're killing me.

Of course, I'll be happy to draw a darling picture of an exquisite bird woman for you - complete with oversized bird feet. I may even illustrate it life size. I hope you don't mind.

Perhaps a faked BG will fit nicely behind the magic imagery. A bit of what seems like foliage. Perhaps some obscure line work. I'll let the figure guide me, like gossamer wings floating on a cool night breeze.

That wolf looks even better placed on your blogs Black BG.

Lorraine said...

Really great work! Like the old style illustration piece, you nailed it.

Dear Daniel I haven't received my bird foot masterpeice yet I'm wonderiong if it got lost in the express mail you promised to send it in their sturdy red white and blue non comunist POstal boxes they have that you can so easliy fold and make dem into little houses you can put small warm birds into and so forth. I glue little doll legs on the birds to they can walk around for me but they just screem and thrash uncontrobaly untill they get tired or I accedently crush them. I catch the bad ones with my little trusty net that never fails me. It's ok becase the regular birsds I catch are evil becase they steal nectar meant for my hummers and thats wrong, so very very wrong as they are regualr birds that can eat anyting they so choose and they are lazy and steel my sugar water for the hummers who olny can lick my nectar form its fake flower plastic reseviour hole. I need my bird lady so bad Danny.

I think you'd better get snappin' on that Wray piece Dan. He sounds as drunk as a Boston cop on St Patrick's Day. Please post with all haste when complete.
