Scarecrow by SoulSpade Scarecrow by SoulSpade
Cover Art concept for a metal band

Pretty gruesome work you can do with a broken pen XD

(Watch as I get sued by an actual band named Murder of Crows. Actually, ya know what. Just looked them up. Yep. I'm in trouble. Let's just pretend like this was a new thing, since I'm not planning on actually making a band or anything :'D)

I really adore the fact that you can draw cutesy ponies and then come up with something like this~

Ish the best.

Broken pen? Goes to show that art doesn't necessarily depend on the materials! (I will say that they do help, though.) Either way, I like this a lot, actually! :D

Just call it "fanart" and you'll be fine, I'm sure! :XD:

right now listening to Slayer so this goes perfectly with it. seeing a lot of cute ponies in your gallery I'm curious as to what you got the inspiration to do this from. its not what we normally get from you but it is no less awesome.

Well, I am a fan of metal, so I've seen quite a few covers that have wicked designs for them XD Also, I like to draw both extremes of the art spectrum, from cute and cuddly to dark and brooding. I just happen to have this as a pony account more than anything since that's what inspired me to make this account in the first place c:

nope nope!!

nothing ever is. everything is a rip off or copy in some shape or form...it is all usually from outside influences, you might not know it, but everything has to do with something around them xDDD

but I really do like this image ;D

When you mean, broken, like the broken ink cartridge, tapping and smudging it around or just the tip of the pen was broken? Because this is phenomenal and I would love to try it.

:iconsoulspade:
SoulSpade Featured By Owner May 5, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
It was that the pen tip popped off, just leaving the ink tube cartridge thingy all open. I just let gravity do its magic, as I slowly poured the ink in spots and used a pointed tool fashioned from some scrap paper I had to spread it in wisps and drops c:

Ever heard of a guy named Derek Hess? This piece reminds me of his works, gruesome and kinda chaotic, that's what I like! :)
