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

I am redoing this piece because, well casper has been my main focus for 2011 and I want to see how far he's come. So keep an open mind and notice I have made changes to his costuming because, well I'm more confident now. Enjoy.

casper is copyright of Anzabelle, me, not yours

I wanted to ask what made this one different from the white masked one you have in your gallery?

Other than the sinister feeling I get from it ^w^

ah, I wanted to redo it because really the first one was a speed drawing and had a lot of flaws. I didn't think I did it justice.

Hmmm....well I do like this one that is true, but I think I like the as contrast to one another as well. You say that your art had flaws, but what if those flaws made the picture better?

I thought the original piece was fantastic, so in theory it was hard for me to grasp the idea of "how far he's come" at first. But, seeing it finished, there have been big improvements in your method. There's simply more depth and texture; the trim on his coat is more polished and concrete, you can almost tangibly feel the age and damage of the mask, the eyes are a lot more deep and glossy.

BEST OF ALL, this remake corrects the only nit-pick I'd ever had about the original: that one side of his face seemed to be tilted maybe a degree or two more than the other side.

The hat is a great touch - I'm trying to imagine how frustrating it must be to keep it on with the horns preventing it from getting a snug fit around the head! I can almost imagine him leaning forward and watching it slowly slide down each segmented piece of the horn before falling and catching on it, hanging and swinging in front of his eyes as he curses in rage.

I really liked working on this, honestly any casper picture because he's so much fun to draw.

and yeah, that hat causes problems, and cursing in rage is exactly what happens, but he wears it because Helen said it looked good on him, and he thinks he needs all he can get.

Lovely! Silly question, but I've always wondered... with Casper art, you have quotes in the artist comments, like "You thought I was some beautiful suitor?" etc. What are they from, exactly?
Reply
:iconanzabelle:
Anzabelle Featured By Owner Dec 29, 2011  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
they are from the story involving casper, it's actually his monologue as he tells the story.

casper has evolved himself over the past year, he's not hellbent on murderous rage, he's just forced into that role.
