Free Art Day 37
I was working on one of the kickstarter custom cards yesterday and really enjoyed the way certain aspects of the ape looked in ink. I utilized some of the same aspects I enjoyed from the custom card in the face and transitions of this creature, especially around the eyes.
I started the card with strange ram horns but scrapped that part and kept the face. I was on a google hangout with my sweetie in Texas while I worked on the card. We discussed giving it a body to fill up the space or using a long neck. He said with the facial expression it lent itself more to the neck, and I agreed. I enjoy the dynamic of wonder created when a creature does not show it's entire form. What could come after the neck?
And the winner is...

Now I remember what this reminds me of. In the movie 'the 7 faces of Dr. Lou' there is a snake that can change it's face (head) and in one scene he has the head of this man smoking a cigar.

Well Netflix doesn't offer it. Do you have a copy of the movie? I may be able to find it online at another location. I'm glad you figured out what it reminded you of. I know the un-comfortability of recognition without association. Thanks for sharing :)
