    Ill try to get some pics up soon of my work, hopefully later tonight. But as you'll all see from a few of my examples that Ill post, I love doing band logos, mostly for grindcore/deathmetal/[and unfortunately]some deathcore bands. I focus mainly on Gore Art and other morbidities.
    I hope to get some pics up tonight, so please watch for the update! :]
    and after you have a chance to see my art, let me know if you like it and if you think you might want a logo for your band with my sort of style, let me know!!

    [and fyi: I dont use any kinds of stencils or anything like that for my logo's, they are all my own fonts that I create and may or may not be uniform or even symmetrical, I dont strive for perfection, I want the look of seemingly well done artwork.]

    Here are some of my artworks, one is unfinished and Ive used photoshop to enhance some of the drawings, contrast-wise. A few others I used photoshop to entirely alter.


    :fawk:THIS IS A WARNING, I PRACTICE ZERO, NONE, NOT ONE OUNCE OF CENSORSHIP IN MY ARTWORK, PLEASE VIEW IT AS SUCH AND NOT AS 'PORNOGRAPHY' OR ANYTHING ELSE OF THAT SORT. I AM A NIHILIST AND A VERY DEMENTED INDIVIDUAL [IN MY OPINION] AND MY ARTWORK REFLECTS BOTH:fawk:

    -SOME OF THIS IS DEFINITELY FOR MATURE AUDIENCES ONLY, DUE TO THE DESCRIPTION AND MY INSPIRATION FOR SOME OF MY WORKS, SO PLEASE IF YOU ARENT MATURE ENOUGH TO HANDLE IT, DONT SCROLL DOWN-



    First off, since I have some creepy ass obsession with Asylum corridors [really any long hallway, I just like the added element of latent insanity from the Asylums] this is a picture I found in Google images, I wish I could credit the original photographer, but Im not sure who did it. It originally had a few skylights and holes in the ceiling, but I used my not-so-great photoshop skills to get rid of them. I really havent named this one yet...but if I figure something neat out for it, Ill post it up.
    And without any further waiting, here it is! :]

    This next one is the first picture in my sketchbook, I was just really upset at a particular female that day, so I envisioned her being blasted in the chest by a shotgun whilst ghouls gnawed her hands and body and in further desecration, a pedophile fascinated by torture proceeds to kiss her lips then tear them [and most of her face] off in one might bite. Then he takes a pair of pliers and grabs her by the clitoris and tears it up her stomach. This one also lacks a name, but here it is:

    [​IMG]


    This next work is one of my favorites, although it needs a bit of work anatomically [one of the things Im trying to improve on]. I have very strong opinions on anything that I actually take the time to consider, Abortion being one of those things, I only consider it a suitable thing to do under VERY specific circumstances, not that 'just-because-Im-a-stupid-teenager-and-got-knocked-up-so-Im-too-immature-to-handle-a-kid' bullshit, your problem, take care of it. Anyway, I also thought this opinion would make a pretty brutal picture after i heard about a girl near where I live being pregnant and having the child at school in the bathroom then flushing it down the toilet. [sick yes, but inspiring also]. After this incident I decided to create something involving 'self-abortion'. This one is simply [and obviously] titled:

    'The Abortion'
    [​IMG]


    Now for some of the Band Logos Ive done, I only have two to show at the moment, more later hopefully, The first is for a band that Im planning currently called Chriophage [latin translation is Christ or God Eater] the second is for a Grindcore band that decided to, instead, opt for SceneMetal >.< ...traitors...and it was to be called 'The Rotting'. Here they are, Chriophage and The Rotting, respectively:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    This last one is a reflection of inner anguish, angst [of course, being 18 will do that to you], hatred and an implosion of emotions in the mind, then an expansion of all the pain into a physical manifest, its not finished yet, but Im playing with it in photoshop and this is what I have so far, its called:

    'Mental Attack'
    [​IMG]


    Thats what I have for now, if you enjoyed any of them please let me know :D
    If it freaked you out, also let me know :D

    Yeah man, Mental Attack is awesome! That's got album cover written all over it. It's got an edge to it without being too over the top, I really dig it. The others are a little too much for me, but I can totally understand the need to rid your head of things like that. I've had to do that myself from time to time. :yesway:

    Thanks for sharing them!

    thats some cool shit you got there, I'm actually going to school for art, but i don't have anything as of yet that is worthy of posting, its just the basic still-lifes the professors set up in class

    I really like "The Abortion" i used to draw alot of demented shit like that but haven't in a while

    Thanks dude :]
    I actually like that one alot too, but I really do need to improve on my proportions and anatomy, muscle and bone structure and that stuff, then redraw it so it looks more realistic.

    Dont you freaking HATE still lifes???
    I cant stand them...they just arent interesting to me, theres nothing to them, no motives, no feelings, its just empty drawing with no real passion to back it up.
    I dont believe in forcing people to draw shit.
    which is why I have failed High School Art classes repeatedly XD

    Wow dude, that mental attack one is awesome. The gory drawings are a bit much for me, though.

    I liked the first and last ones the best (the cooridor and the spiderweb like mental anguish).
