Swinging a cluster of shrunken heads with abandon, a goblin shaman sprints toward his target with his ceremonial dagger held high. Anyone who stands in his way is likely to be scorched to ashes, turned into a chicken, or added to the shaman’s shrunken head collection.
Making 100 drawings in a hundred days has been an amazing process so far. I’ve had a great time making this type of fantasy art, and it’s been a chance for me to work out some drawing impulses that had stored up in me over the course of several years of not making art. As with Thorim Copperbeard, this drawing was partly inspired by the artwork and miniatures for tabletop games like Warhammer Fantasy, and it was a fun way to tap into some of the things I was excited about as a kid.
As much as I’ve enjoyed creating these fantasy drawings, however, they are not the kind of art I’m most excited to make at this point in my life. Having worked ahead on these everyday drawings, I can tell you that this Goblin Shaman is the last of his kind, at least for any foreseeable future. Check back here tomorrow for a big shift in style and content. I’m excited to share it with you.
My everyday drawings are available for sale in my Big Cartel shop each morning at 11 am EST. For the first 100 days, each new drawing increases in price by $1.00, starting at $1.00 on day one. Everyday 024 – Goblin Shaman is listed at $24.00.
