This is actually a part of my competitive examination, or admission test to a college here in Norway. I made this, and sent them some other artworks as well as a long text document explaining the 'meaning' behind the art I've sent them and stuff, since that was what I was supposed to do in the test.. Funny thing is, I got a letter from them right the next day after I'd sent them my admission test, a letter which told me I'd been accepted!
So that was a fast decision
and long story short, I'll be studying Illustration for two years in Oslo from this autumn of..!
About this drawing though; it's an unfinished 'color sketch' because I wanted to show that college how I work, and not just finished artworks. The idea for it, is based on my Plague Doctor comic, which you can find in my gallery. I got a sudden burst of inspiration, and felt like re-drawing that comic. I came up with a story for the doctor, like how his childhood was, what made him decide on becoming a plague doctor, stuff like that. And I ended up with this drawing instead. It's actually supposed to be five separate illustrations combined into a series of images that becomes one big illustration.
But yeah, I hope to one day be able to do a re-make of the Plague Doctor comic.
For now though, here's a teaser
