Esqueleto de la Bruja 3: Fuck This

Been a minute since I posted, been a minute since I drew a poster for a show. Been a minute. Been a minute.

Skeletonwitch is really really awesome, so I wanted to do something really really awesome for this poster. I think I did a pretty good job. I like that dude, and the "FUCK THIS" mug. That skeleton faced soldier lady has been on two previous Skeletonwitch posters I'd done: HERE and HERE. Havoc is from Colorado (not to be confused with the Havoc from Mexico), Mutilation Rites are from Brooklyn, and The Blood Royale is from Austin.

Motorcycles could potentially be difficult to draw, unless you don't give a shit about representing an actual motorcycle that exists and works in the real world. Obviously there are time when ya gotta sell it, and ya can't just guess or fly by the seat of your wheelchair. When drawing something accurate and detailed is what makes the piece work in a way that convinces the viewer of the reality of your image, even on a subconscious level. Other times, especially when you're drawing things in motion, or things happening that are largely sold through memory anyway, you can dial back the fundamental accuracy of specifics. The weight of it all balances on the energy of how it looks rather than the details. I least, I think that's how it works.
