Mothman by philho Mothman by philho
Recently I made a trade with *GreenEyedMonster88: she would draw something inspired by a piece in my gallery, I would draw her Mothman "character".
She drew her personal interpretation of Prune and the Monster, a very good take on the theme.
I took as reference Mothman (main reference...), Do Birds Believe In God?, Mothman II and Your Teeth Belong To Me.
I fear my drawing isn't as finely detailed as *GreenEyedMonster88's ones, but I enjoyed making this character. I first thought of using it to participate at the manga/anime mini-contest of last month (Mothman as a cook would have been interesting), but I was too late... :D I still tried to put it (him?) in an interesting situation. Not playing the scaryman, more on the candid side.
I hope I did it justice.


Récemment j'ai fait un échange avec *GreenEyedMonster88 : elle devrait dessiner quelque chose inspiré par une déviation de ma galerie, je devais dessiner son "personnage" Mothman.
Elle a dessiné une interprétation très personnelle de Prune et le monstre, c'est une très bonne version du thème.
J'ai pris comme référence Mothman (référence principale...), Do Birds Believe In God?, Mothman II and Your Teeth Belong To Me.
Je crains que mon dessin n'est pas aussi finement détaillé que ceux de *GreenEyedMonster88, mais j'ai aimé faire ce personnage. J'ai d'abord pensé m'en servir pour participer au mini concours anime/manga du mois précédent (Mothman en cuisinier aurait été intéressant...), mais j'étais trop en retard. :D J'ai quand même essayé de le mettre dans une situation intéressante. Il ne joue pas les affreux, plutôt du côté candide.
J'espère lui avoir fait justice.

wonderful! i haven't noticed you finished this?
however, i'm glad to have seen this. you did quite well! i love it. i think you observed very well and captured the whimsical nature the character displays wonderfully. question: who's the girl? is she someone from your imagination?
once again, i think this is wonderful :)

Thanks for coming. I suppose my comment/notification in your deviation was unnoticed. No problem.
The girl is random and imaginary, an anonymous person to contrast with your character. And to create a mini-story left to the imagination of the viewer. =)

Oh I like the moth man and the shading technique that you applied to him! He looks quite awesome! And I like how he's tapping her on the shoulder, I would love to see the reaction to him :giggle:

Yes, I tried to be close of Green's shading technique, yet it is still mine, they are quite close (but Green's one is much finer!).
And the surprise is what makes the drawing interesting, IMHO... Will be she scared, surprised, pleased (she might know him already!), indifferent (yet another accidental human contact in public transports...)? The possibilities are endless!

You depict him from the reference so good here. :)
And I feel like to help the girl from him. But, first, is she cute?
philho Featured By Owner Jul 16, 2008  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Yes. Perhaps a bit too faithful, I should have chosen another angle, but it fitted well my composition and I had little time...

if I saw that guy walking down the street I would probably crap my pants, his so fucking scary :(

Yet, credits to *GreenEyedMonster88
But somehow I feel the character/monster isn't so much designed to be scary (like Hell Raiser's creatures). He/it is more on the "ugly but you don't choose how you look" side...
