the Plague Doctor  teaser poster by oomizuao the Plague Doctor  teaser poster by oomizuao
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! :dance: So that was a fast decision :D and long story short, I'll be studying Illustration for two years in Oslo from this autumn of..! :la:

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 ;)

Congratulations on getting into college! That's the easy part. The hard part is doing the work to stay in college, but I have no doubt that you'll be able to do it.

Great piece by the way!

Congratulations on your acceptance! It's great to hear that they accepted you so quickly; they must have been very impressed by your works :)

And this is a gorgeous piece, sketchiness and all! I love the blue tones you've used, and that tiny bit of red is a very nice touch (:

That is an awesome idea! I would love to see a remake of the Plague Doctor comic. He is a really cool character with an even cooler personality. Oh yeah, and congrats on getting accepted, not that there was any question of your talent. I'm sure you'll be running the place within a few weeks! Have fun! :D (Big Grin)

This looks really great. Has a certain atmosphere with the shading and the sketch lines.. I would keep it that way. Looks rough, just like his life probably is/was. And congratulations!! :)
