Sol Glickman: Demon At Large

Sol just loved the spotlight. Too bad it didn't love him back!

Wow, it's been a while since I posted an actual illustration on my blog. That because last year's Xmas card took a lot out of me. After it was done I didn't even want to look at my graphic tablet for a month or so. Then there was all the job drama. Losing my job, getting a part time job, and then finally finding a good full time job... it's been an eventful few months. All that's behind me now and I'm ready to get back into illustration mode.

This illustration started life as a sketchbook doodle, as most of them do. And like most of my drawings, the finished product looks quite different from what I had planned in the beginning. It started out as a square drawing, but about halfway through I decided I wanted the demon to be under a spotlight, so I kept making the page taller and taller until it looked right. That's usually how I work; I get a better idea halfway through.

Drawn in Photoshop on the graphic tablet.I deliberately went with a washed out color palette, just because.


Here's the original sketch of Sol. Nothing much changed in the final drawing, except maybe his fingers.
