Illustrating the unknown

Its always challenging illustrating or painting something that clearly doesn't exist.

Recently I finished this graphite drawing of a lizard type character from a fantasy setting. The big challenge for me turned out to be finding a middle line between beast and man, that spot where its still sentient and a cultural carrier but without looking like a human in a costume.

At the moment I´m really enjoying playing around with graphite powder, giving my drawing practice a more painterly feel.

Graypath, graphite on colored paper, 30x50cm.
