|What you see here is the result of a very long and interesting process. This portrait shall forevermore (or until I deem otherwise) remain the featured deviation of my extensive gallery.|
The inspiration for this drawing actually came from two sources. The first and primary source obviously being Mortal Kombat's Scorpion. Without him, the idea would have remained just that: an idea.
The second source of inspiration, and the source of my reference, was EspenG's Scorpion painting, which I relied heavily upon.
Scorpion by EspenG
Drawing Scorpion was a long process that took me several hours. Trying to get his mask right was tedious and drew out the drawing process even further. Still, as annoying as it was sometimes, it was a fun experience.
I started with the hood and worked my way down from there. Drawing the hood was relatively simple; Scorpion's face was not. notI ended up having to erase mistakes multiple times before I got it right.
Scorpion's head and mask
Drawing the mask was my favourite and most frustrating step of the drawing. I couldn't seem to get the shape right. When I finally got it to look decent, I had worn the paper thin with my eraser.
After I completed the head, the rest of the drawing went smoothly. Although, I still believe I could have done a better job with his chestplate.
The finished pencil drawing
I uploaded the drawing to my tablet and colored it in to complete it.
The final image
The overall process took me about 8 hours, from sketch to tablet.
