The Silence/Silence of the Lambs....it somehow made sense in my head..

Anyways, just got my first drawing tablet and needed a project to christen it. Shading/cross-hatching isn't my strong suit so I feel like it looks a tad messy. (Does it even look like a Silent? My mom kept asking me why I was drawing a skull.)

I would love to know what you think!

    I'm sorry, what looks like a Silence? I didn't see a picture of anything.

    Did anyone else see a picture of anything? I'll just scroll up the page.

    How did I manage to post something four times on this page, and why is my face all covered in markings? I'll just scroll up the page...

    ^_^

    I like how the TARDIS is incorperated into the moth.

    yea at first I thought you couldn't see the image or was having issues with your computer, but after I read the 4th image, I started to laugh.
    I like it very much and is better than anything I can come up with.
    What about making the moth blue or would that be overkill?

    hmm hmm ... Ilike the idea and all. looks nifty. but then again, you yourself mentioned the similarity between "Silence" and a human skull. I know it would throw you're design overboard as it is, but it's basically the very same idea, just more into the Silence of the Lambs direction: why not having any of the Doctor's face in the background ... and having the moth with the skull-like face (Silence) on it in the foreground?

    FYI: noticed how the skull in the original poster isn't in fact a skull, but naked women ... taken from one of Phillipe Halsman's portraits of Dalí? I better link it instead of putting it in here, contains ... well, naked women of course

    --> link to " Dali In Voluptate Mors"

    Right now, this is my mind.

    @Jackpot:
    You might want to check that glowing red message in your hand :)

    @kgullhomen:
    Thanks for the suggestions! I did think of doing the Silence as the deathshead but I was worried that the small size would make it less recognizable. Also, more importantly, I'm absolute rubbish at drawing humans/Time Lords :( But hey, here's an opportunity for me to practice!
    Haha I remember the day I noticed the naked ladies...I was standing in Blockbuster reading the DVD boxes (What? It's what the cool kids do.) and realized that there was something a little...strange about that skull. Definite mind-blowing moment there.

    Awesome design. I might suggest drawing distinct eyes on the Silent (perhaps the same color eyes as the Silence of the Lambs poster). It might add to the eeriness of the character as well as allow the design to better mirror the poster.

    I wonder what it would look like without the white border. :)

    okay, so:
    with eyes
    Photobucket
    without the outline
    Photobucket

    and @jody, nope, my screenname is just a silly reference to the fact that both my first and last name mean "river" in different languages :)

    Love it without the outline. Not so sure about the eyes.

    I much prefer it with no eyes. Definitely creepier.

    What if you made the moth blue, like the TARDIS?

    Definitely best with no outline and no eyes.

    No outline, no eyes in my opinion. The face and the moth look amazing, definitely looks like the Silence, love the sketched style.. very John Tenniel.. would definitely buy this.

    I do wish we could chat longer, but I'm having an old friend for dinner..

    @mewomaddie: Ahhhh that line still gives me the shivers. (And thank you for the Tenniel comparison!! I am not worthy...)

    Here's a rough version with a blue moth. I dunno how I feel about it...the blue makes more sense but it doesn't pop as much as the yellow. Hmmm. Suggestions?

    I'd say try a brighter shade of blue. :) This blue has a little too much purple in it.
