Eyeball removal device by TheGreatMe Eyeball removal device by TheGreatMe
No inspiration was needed for this one, the idea came straight out of nowhere.

It got drawn while i was outside with my rabbits. How highly interesting, i know...

Work time needed was around 3 hours. Almost no breaks, 1 or 2 probably but only of a few minutes.

A scan of the whole sheet follows, posted in the scraps. I found myself using sketches more often and if i use them, a bigger amount also, in the last time. Probably because my drawings are getting more advanced, so my mind suggests me to start doing some plans, instead of risking to ruin the drawing.

That looks very painful. Amazing how the detail in something can be so beautiful, and yet the concept behind it grotesque. Oh well, I shall appreciate the irony. Good work Stephan!

You could have left out that "but", "a style completely out of normal" indeed is a great compliment to me. Thanks very much for your comment and both of your faves!

Cool drawing! Kind of a wicked dream or so :D. It would be great if the eye were being pulled out of something, instead of just hanging around. The nerve shape gives the sense that it is being forced :D
Anyway, that would be for the next one :D

Thanks a lot, yeah i was thinking of it being pulled out of somewhere. But, you know, it was like this: I had a (almost) totally clear concept. At first i didn't think about the eye being pulled anyhow. I got the idea for some place where the eye is supposed to be usually, later...too late. If an additional idea for a drawing comes while i work at that drawing the idea belongs too, i feel like i would surely ruin it accidentally. Not sure why i do feel so. Probably i wouldn't ruin it, in fact i really liked to add that special bit yet. But i'm too afraid of that ruining. At least that nerve, i was trying to make the best out of the pull-effect by it.

Probably i should think longer before starting to draw, or do some some detailed sketches, so the additional ideas even have a chance to appear (if my sketches are too simple i probably wouldn't get the ideas i think, that's why i think i'd need a detailed sketch if i wanted to start that way). But i'll stay with my current way...this way will surely change, the way how i draw changed a lot since i began drawing, so i'm pretty sure there are changes, tweaks on my style and stuff coming.:)

mmh, yeah, I got a similar problem when drawing stuff. Its like if the drawing was sacred and untouchable, and we were unable to make the slightest experiment on them :O . Maybe that's why trying different drawing styles and daring to do something new its so hard (and for the same reason, so rewarding in the long term).
Anyway, I agree that if you feel ok with your current method, then there's no reason to change it. (Guess the trick its to find a way to feel ok with it, hehe...)

Yeah, you exactly know what i mean. It's a strange feeling, but it really feels as they would be untouchable, as you said.

What did you mean by saying "and for the same reason, so rewarding in the long term"?

About the lest sentence you said: Didn't you mean that the trick is to find a way that you feel ok with, in other words: find your very own way of drawing or being creative overall? It would be strange if you'd try to force yourself to feel okay with a way, not?

well, its more about finding a kind of artistic "nirvana" :O. I was using myself as an example. I'm always looking for a kind of ultimate perfection on my drawing styles. I draw something, and it looks fine for a moment, then, the next day, I see the drawing again, and my mind starts seeing all the little flaws and proportion inconsitencies, or stuff like that, so I never feel that I drew anything "good".
Of course, no artist will ever feel 100% happy with their works, and that's good, because that helps making your style better. Still, there shurely must be a middle ground, where you're okay with what you draw, but at the same time, you're trying to improve.
(oh, about the "rewarding on the long term", I've seen that after I tried drawing methods I disagree on, or tried styles I didn't liked, my overall experience and hability improved a little. I don't know how it works, but it seems that trying and tasting the things you fear the most its very... educational, if that's how it may be called :O ...)
(damn, I'm such a preacher... =P)

Well, but don't feel like it wouldn't be interesting what you are writing.

I totally agree with everything you said...i'd like to answer your statements one by one...but it would be senseless as i could just repeat what you've said, hehe:).

What you said about trying different materials sounds very interesting, and is actually hard to imagine to me...

And i totally know this feeling that you are satisfied with the drawing after finishing it, and the next day you see all the flaws, etc..

What exactly is the question now? What i meant by "hard to imagine"? I just meant i can hardly imagine how experience in using other materials can make my skills advance...but i don't think it's impossible either...

Hehe, yeah, strange situation, that's why i thought it's kind of "necessary" to mention when it got drawn.

And you are totally right about eyeballs, when i'm in the mood to draw something i first start drawing an eyeball most times.:)

Den Kaninchen gehts prima. Jetzt wo ich schöne Musik höre (Death Metal), bei der der Sänger so schön brutales Zeugs singt...da sind sie noch entspannter als draussen. Die 2 scheinen eine gewisse Vorliebe für gegrunzte Musik entwickelt zu haben:D.
