Pika's Jareth Depiction Studies in Black Ink

Inspired by this Deviant Artist's Work: :iconpika-la-cynique:

A while back, before I drew the Pika Spoof of SGRE, I drew some mimick concepts of certain poses that Pika had used for Jareth in random GND comics.

Often, an artist will 'copycat' another artist's work to learn how they draw and conceptualize form and line. I like to study other artists' drawings quite often, because this is how we learn to rethink the path that we are on.

By far, I won't be drawing Pika's work all of the time, MAINLY because that is her story, but out of appreciation for what she has shared with us and the time that she has taken from her own hectic schedule to draw an amazingly hilarious and entertaining comic, I just had to add a part of her world into my sketchbook journal forever.

Pika's GND is NOT MINE!
"Labyrinth" & Jareth are NOT MINE!

Media Used: India Ink/ Faber Castell-8 Pitt Media Ink Manga Pens, Recycled Paper Sketchbook (from Walmart)

Or, how to point out a major lengthening and thinning in His Majesty's face since his earliest appearance... oh well. :)

And again, dude - flattering as all hell. I like the ink work, too, adds something graceful and extra-stylized to what you're doing.

No worries, Dear! I have actually gone through the Jareth changes within my SGRE comic too. Actually, now that I ponder over it - I think that might be because I use different Bowie references taken throughout the years. If he's younger - Jareth looks younger, and if he's older ... well, you get the idea.

I love your version of Jareth despite his changes throughout the course of GND.

No problem-o! Glad that you enjoyed it! Once again, love your work, and Thank You for all of the time that you've placed into it.

THANK YOU VERY MUCH! :love:

I think you really make Pika's style justice (with a pinch of your own style)!:D

Why THANK YOU, Hon! That was very sweet of you to say so. I often worry that I might have butchered another artist's style, so I appreciate the feedback.

I'm glad that you enjoyed it and THANK YOU again, but I also accredit my thanks over to Pika as well, who comics are really inspiring and funny.

:love: :hug: :blowkiss:

Oooh~ awesome!

Even now, I'm still trying to find the art style I can be comfortable doing with. With all these amazing works, its hard not to try your hand with the artist's drawing styles to see if it could somehow improve something on your own work.

It takes time to find your niche in artstyle. I'm not even sure that I've found one yet. For one thing, I can't... can NOT draw non-objective art.

I can mimick hundreds of other artists, and I can make people look exactly like the person that I want it too... but I can't come up with something original looking like Pika or Ashe can.

I would love to have my own style, but in the end, I feel that my own style is really an incorporation of many other artists that have inspired me over the years. Maybe its like that for many artists, but "ahhh" to be original. Now 'that' would be something! :nod:

THANK YOU and to :iconpika-la-cynique: for GND!

I like the after-karaoke hangover crash arc-Jareth where Sarah ended up waking up next to him in bed. Jareth: "You snuggled."

THANK YOU and a special thanks to :iconpika-la-cynique: for her amazing comic! Also to :iconasherhyder: for Roommates that inspired Pika.

It can. I learned to draw from copy-catting (NOT TRACING) Mad Magazine and Marvel's Uncanny X-Men in the 80s and 90s. I attribute all of my drawing skills to them. :D

THANK YOU, but Thanks also goes to :iconpika-la-cynique: for "Girls Next Door".

I had it for a while in my sketchbook journal, and since Pika's schedule has been more hectic than mine of late, wow... I'm totally missing her GND comic. (It always brightens the middle of my week)

THANK YOU TO YOU, but A HUGE THANKS TO :iconpika-la-cynique: for GND!

It reminds me of a song from the 70s called, "Stuck in the Middle".

It was a pretty funny song and quite a foot tapper.
ANYWAY... I'm rambling.
THANK YOU! :love:
