This is a little more death metal than my typical work, but actually quite in line with my influences. I listen to a lot of really aggressive, rhythmic metal music in the studio, and also follow a number of artist who work primarily doing band art commissions. Guys like Grindesign, Godmachine, and Jonathan Bergeron (aka Johnny Crap) are versed in pen and ink, like myself, but either work completely in photoshop or at least do their finishing touches digitally. This was a fully inked 9x12 drawing which I then finalized in Photoshop.
I'm working on integrating limited color into my line art to give it some extra oomph and accessibility... can I say that about a skull design?
In any case, I'm planning some limited edition screen prints and tee shirts based on the one-color version of this design. Stay tuned! Meanwhile, there are digital prints available on my Etsy shop.
