I am a huge fan of the Doom computer games. Back in the early 90s as a young and disillusioned twenty something, the arrival of Doom on PC helped me a great deal. Not just in playing the game but in the rich visual style that the game used. The wonderful hybrid of tech and hell inspired me no end.
I recently bought DOOM for the XBox One and am thoroughly enjoying playing through it. It’s tough but challenging enough for me to pursue it. Better yet it’s helped once again to ignite my love for the visual style.
So I fired up Painter and sketched out my own bad guy. The first sketch is a simple pencil sketch. I then used my beloved ink pen to illustrate something in my developing ink style. The shading is achieved using a marker and pastel.
