selections from the sketchbook of Steve Morrison, illustrator
very interesting! I love your blog, your drawings are wonderfull. I especially like the frog and the bears from a while back - great style!
Woa Steve! What happened here?? I see you have a dark side : ) You have been doing some interesting new stuff lately. I actually really like the pen & ink and whatever you did for the background...I am trying to figure out if that is marker or a color wash. As always, I love your illustration.
Your artwork and ideas are very interesting!
Oops! Very nice illo. Great lines and use of color.
Thanks for the nice comments! Kate -- the background is actually some gold ink I found at the local art store. I did this picture to try it out. In real life it's shiny. And, by the way, the creature is Maat, the Egyptian monster who would devour your heart in the afterlife--if your heart weighs more than a feather! If your heart is lighter than a feather, you'r safe.
This piece is so very brilliant. I really like your inking style. Has a very classical sophisticated look to it.
This is very different than the other one! Equally as lovely though. Great story too!
Love it!! I think we were on the same wavelength for this one! BTW-- Ma'at is actually the goddess of truth whose feather (and sometimes the whole goddess) sits on the scale. The scale sits in the hall of the two truths, named for her presence.The beast is, um.MumbleIforgetunpronounceable.But it starts with an A?Part croc, part hippo, part....ehh.*off to wikipedia*
Ammit.That's the beastie.And some places(including wikipedia) describe her as a lioness, rather than a chimera of three others.
Ammit...Thanks, Liz. That's interesting...I have a good friend who's in grad school studying Egyptology--hopefully she won't find this page and see my mistake! :)
This is a really interesting illustration. I have my fingers crossed for this one to be pick of the week.
oooh! bloody justice! hehe.. well thats my interpretation that is! cool illo..
WOW....great feel to this and such judicial use of color...superb!
wow, this is great. Love the overall feel of this, especially the pen and ink. Wonderful.Great story behind "Ammit" as well (and totally creepy, I might add)
Wow, amazing! I´m impressed, good work!
This is nice, and delightfully creepy!
I enjoy your simpler...punchline sketches as well as these detailed one. this is an amazing piece!
