Grim by Mr--Jack Grim by Mr--Jack
Been slack again!
I wasn't going to put this up but it's been a while since I uploaded anything so hey.

I've had an idea for something along these lines for a while, inspired a bit (incongruously maybe) from a Joanna Newsom lyric, but this isn't quite it so there might be more hooded figures with gulls in the future.

Just a quick sketch from the other night, anyway, after a couple of beers.
*also for those who're interested was playing around with some cool brush presets from ~zhuzhu*

I like the addition of the seagull. It has a unique sense of companionship and contrast. And its nice that its not the cliche "Raven" or "Crow" on the shoulder. Very nice.

I live in a coastal town and I love to hear the gulls screaming in the dark when something disturbs them at night... not so hard then to believe that they might be in league with the Reaper, haha! Beautiful art, I love everything about this...

You have to add them in the 'tool presets' menu on the left side of the top toolbar, not in the brush presets menu.
Hope that works! :D

Really cool. You know you're a total badass when you can have a seagull on your shoulder and people (like me) don't even notice it until reading the comments. :iconfacepalmplz:

As always Mr. Jack, truly inspirational. Bold and powerful, yet elusive pose. I envision your illustration of Death as he has just claimed another sailors soul (sea gulls). Death himself would be proud or your interpretation of him.
