Your minotaur character is terrific, he has a nice charm to him.

Jaku said...

Hey, you, medusa!! Let him go!!!
grrrr...
jejejeje.
Great, as always, maestro.
Just a question:
How long does it takes you to make an ilustration like this one?

craig said...

martin wittig said...

Gabriele-Terrific work!:o)

Gabriele Pennacchioli said...

Thanks guys.
I'm glad that you like the minotaur. I'm plannig to do more drawings with this character.

Jaku- This one took me quite a bit. I would say: 15 minutes for the pencil and 20 minutes for ink and shading.
I also did some digital retouching, mostly cleaning my red pencil.

Uno spettacolo dietro l'altro.

really gorgeous medusa. i think she´s too much woman for a young minotaur.
poor little mythological creature.

Smook said...

You use tails as hands, hair as hands......and still maintain a great silhouette. Looking forward to more of the minotaur!
