Just finished reading Hexwood aloud to my husband. As Hexwood always does, it made me curious as to what Mordion, the hero, actually looks like.
He’s described as having a face like a skull, with one eyebrow shaped like hawk wings that is always swooping down into a frown.
Anyway, I started with a skull …
Then sketched a face over it, trying to make the skull-ness very pronounced.
He wound up looking like Spock or something. And I couldn’t remember if he has hair or not. I know he periodically grows a beard, but I wanted to draw him when he was still the Servant.
Anyway, drawing over a skull is very liberating, because all the structure is right there. Maybe I’ll start doing this whenever a face gives me trouble. 🙂
