Moby Dick by MumblingIdiot Moby Dick by MumblingIdiot
It's Moby Dick! I assume this part will actually happen at some point towards the end of the book. It's taken months to drag myself half way through it.

Basically a combination of scanned texture, manual scratching into it and using colours that look like they could be printed.

I'm designing a Moby Dick sticker and just when I thought it was finally good I see this, it's in a similar style, but it's amazing! MUST TRY HARDER :lol:

This looks like a lino print, how is it digital or is it a mix of the two?

This is fully digital. I laid it out in pencil then traced it digitally with a wobbly kind of brush and did lots of chipping away and muckying up.

Great sense of composition and sensibility! Each line, each color and shape is perfect. Congratulations! I didn't have time to go through all your galley, but I've seen a few works, all of them are great. You got a new Watcher :)

Darn, I've such a horrible time reading this book. Maybe it wasn't quite good idea to read it when I was like... seventeen ;)
Anatomy details and divagations wheter whale is a fish or not sure were pain...
Anyway, this would make a great album cover, as someone mentioned already.

They are the bits that are a real pain. You could probably do a really good trimmed down version that features only the parts that carry the plot along, but I guess that would be seen as literary sacrilege.

Saw this on Drawn, and I hope it brings good stuff down the line! Although I gotta say, I wish they had featured something with a little more of your personal flavor. I guess I'll just be patient.

MumblingIdiot Featured By Owner Jan 14, 2011  Professional
Thanks! Yeah, both times I've been on Drawn it's been for things I wouldn't say were my best or massively typical of my work. I do like doing stuff in this style but if I had to choose one look to be known for it probably wouldn't be this one. Not complaining though, if people like it that's great!

It's effing hard going. There have been bits that I've really loved and went back and read again but then there's huge chunks that I can barely take in a word of.
