Inktober 2020 Day 8: Got Some Teeth

This entry is part 8 of 31 in the series Inktober 2020

Get a full view of the image in the gallery at the end of the post.

This is an exercise in shading and shadows as a relied heavily on using black to give depth to a rose with teeth.

The image is based on the poster for the 2007 film Teeth, a horror comedy. It’s a deep cut that only weirdos like me actively sought out when it was released. Not to give too much away, but the movie is about… vagina dentata.

I wanted to go painterly here, reserving the clear details for the actual teeth in the center and then using a big sketchy brush for the rose. This probably would have worked better with color, but I chose to only do the series in grayscale. Consequences of my own decisions.
