Ooh I'm a bit behind with dA and only just saw that you got a DD! Congrats! Lovely tones with the coffee there. I love that you seem to have captured some strange moment halfway between a transformation from plant to animal/human (and I especially like the fungi!) Where do the ideas come from for something like this - do you already know what you're going to draw when you start, or does it just kind of appear in front of you as you add more and more lines?

I'm a bit behind too (as per usual)!!
Thanks a lot, Erin! To be honest, I wasn't really sure where I was going with this. To be even more honest, I usually don't know what I'm going to do everytime I start something :P
For this one I just knew I wanted 3 "characters", woody textures and weirdness. I started drawing what I thought could look like a dog-like head (which became the left big creature) and the rest just came as I kept drawing. I liked the idea of a species in which none of the creatures looked the same or had the same features, just a few hints of resemblance. 
Now, that's just for this particular drawing, the rest start and flow differently, but the way I work is usually the same :) I hope this is clear enough!

It took me a minute to realize this was a coffee painting! :excited: I love coffee paintings, since coffee gives that uber earthly and natural feel, what with the colors you can create with it. I'm really in love with great attention to detail in this! Not only that, the right shades of color are in the right places, adding to the overall composition.

Keep being awesome, and have a nice day! :heart:

Asfodelo Featured By Owner May 18, 2013  Student General Artist
Yeah, I love the range of colors that you get with coffee too! Too bad it's not lightfast :(.
I'm not sure if the shades are placed quite right (actually, I know they're not haha) but I made them so they would look good in the composition and trying to keep them somehow natural, instead of going for a more realistic shading. But hey, I'm glad you like it and feel that way about it!
Thanks, Alex!

Also, nice profile picture. Is that a plague doctor mask I see?

Not quite, but somehow similar, I guess, at least in shape. I used those carnival masks as reference. But I like bird shaped masks in general, and plague doctor masks are not an exception!
