I wanted to create a similar drawing but with more narrative to it.
Just before class started, I produced some rough sketches
The ideas was to have some kind of fish or reptilian creature rising from the lake and towering over a man fishing in a smal boat, totally oblivious to the present danger.
The initial rough sketches didn't really produce anything I was after. I realisd that I had just reproduced poor imitations of 70's comic cover art and not the image I was after.
I had a few more attempts at creating a creature that would create the right tone for the image...
I decided on a complete rethink.. I remembered the giant worm reature in Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong
and I then realised that this was the kind of creature I wanted for the drawing.
I decided to look at images of deep see worms
Here are the stages for the drawing
