Bottom of the Valley by Anzabelle Bottom of the Valley by Anzabelle
"You thought I was some beautiful suitor? A pretty prince to which would grant your deepest and darkest wishes? Well my dear I am far from. Look on my face, look and know that this is the cruelty of man." ---Casper

This is casper, my darling boy and one of my favorites in the world to draw.

This was done with prismacolor markers, pencils, and white gel pen.

casper is copyright of Anzabelle, me, not yours
stock used: [link]

and editorial note:
Look because this really irritates me Casper is MINE. I dreamt of him, he's my baby. Hell he represents part of my own psyche, if you used the same stock I did please, I dont need to hear that I "stole" this from you. We used the same stock. Get over it. I will happily explain to the ones who comment individually where this character came from, but please I did not steal this so quit your whinning and get back to the drawing board like I did for weeks trying to recount the exact look of the man from my dreams. Thank you.

there is a sotry, it's being told slowly through the pictures and a written plot that I've been working on. it just comes slowly.

Grinsender, a demon of the Devil's right hand who was horribly disfigured when he turned against his leader. So the Devil punished him by taking Grinsender's pride which was his beauty. Lol, yep that would be my baby.

I like the look of the demon eyes ( if they are that).

also, for the Angels for a cause thing, were we meant to put the entire entry into our journal? because that''s wat i ended up doing and if that wasn't what you intended, I apologize.

Really? There are people complaining that you stole something from them that wasn't theirs to begin with? :lmao: Oh my. I have this same stock photo saved for an idea of mine. I guess they might be disappointed that their idea isn't all unique and speshull anymore, but really, if anyone looks at the comments area of any stock photo, they'll see just how many people have done art with that photo (and have notified the artist like one is generally supposed to do). If they want their piece to be super unique, I guess they should stay out of the stock gallery and just take all their own photos and not share them.

Anyway, about the piece itself -- I really like his eyes, the shine on the nails, and the red color you used for the linework. It's a great piece overall and you have an amazing eye for detail!

yeah, eh I never got a reply nor heard anything else on the subject from them. I think quite a few people went and yelled at the person. there's not much for male stock so they'll have to get over it.

and thank you for the kind words, it's always nice to know that my work is appreciated:)

I know what you mean about limited guy stock. I was actually frustrated last night that there weren't ENOUGH shirtless dudes in the gallery, for another idea of mine. I mean sure, there's a lot, but many of them are a series of the same model - which means the same body type, same expressions and postures.

What Casper doesn't know is that he IS beautiful, despite all the scars. actually those just make him even more interesting.
His eyes are so awesome.I.WANT.THEM.his hair is really really good too.
LOVE this soo much!<3

*goes black* DAAAAAYYYY-UM. That is ONE faaaine ass boy dehr. XD Bahahaha, okay, I have to give you awesome props on this, it kicks ass. I had prismacolors at one point in life (may they rest in peace) and I could never work them like this. Lovely, just lovely. ONE NITPICK: Please don't hate me, buuut, the little ridges on the nose...I think they could use a bit of darker value, they would pop out a lot more. Right now they look a bit flat to me, but I'm sure not too many people would notice that *rolls eyes* I only saw because I look at all art with a critic's eye. ANYhow : ) the shadows you used on the scars on the left side of the face, yeah? Use them on the thingies on the nose. ^^ that's my advice.

The concept of your Casper is something that is really interesting. I find the darker genre to be far more facinating since you never know what to exspect. The art is simply amazingly done

You know this is really good when it causes someone to gross out when looking at the scarred side of the face...LOVE IT!
I was eating and it totally freaked/grossed me out! In a good way, of course!
Awesome job!
