Drawing an Enderman

I love Minecraft. And I love drawing. I love tutorials. And I love my friend SamBeAwesome. So when I found out that she did a tutorial years ago on how to draw an Enderman (from Minecraft) – I couldn’t resist.

I started with some sketches while watching the tutorial.

And then I sketched out the plan for my piece of art.

Then I drew it out on the paper that I use for marker pieces, and I inked the line art. I got out my alcohol markers and started colouring.

And found that the markers I wanted to use were drying out. I wasn’t overly happy with the darkness of the Enderman (I hadn’t wanted to draw him black). So I made a monumental error and went over it with coloured pencil.

This is a very valid technique for art. A lot of people I follow utilise the method. But I borked it up. Maybe it was the wrong paper, maybe it was my technique. But it was horrible.

I tossed the paper to the side, and sulked. I did some other art for a bit. Then decided to go digital.

And I am SO VERY GLAD that I did, because I LOVE this piece.

Endermen don’t have texture to them, but I loved the look of the texture I did so much that I had to give him some little square spots too.

I may have to do more Minecraft pieces in this style. What should I draw next?
