Shiadhuk

The Shiadhuk is a mysterious legend that is said to one day suck the light of the sun until darkness is all that is left. Nobody knows what the Shiadhuk really is; it could be a shadow, a cloud of darkness, a black hole, or dark matter. A popular belief is that the Shiadhuk eats starlight and that is why its eyes reflect the stars. The Shiadhuk is often surrounded by the souls of dead stars. Either way, it is said that the Shiadhuk would humble the earth in darkness and forever curse it in shadow.

"SLUUUUURP mmm that's good hydrogen" :hungry:

Very creative idea, pretty original too (well I'll admit I've seen similar in Fantastic four - Rise of the Silver Surfer) but if that's the only reference I can make, then it's safe to say it's far from a common concept =p looks a bit Van Gogh-ish too, he's one of the first artists I learned about and I liked the style of his works too, this also looks like some really old depiction froma time where people would have feared this might happen :fear:

:D Hydrogen for sho!

Thank you. Yea actually it was a random doodle that I first called the Shadow Man lol. I was playing around and stuff and then I just kept playing around with the main inkwork until it hit me this can be my Darksider submission! For some very good reasons however, I cannot let go of space. Even in my expressive creative artwork there is always space :O

Van Gogh is one of my favorite artists of all time, I've enjoyed his style so much that I wish I came up with it haha.

Well even if you can't let go of space influenc ein your work I don't think it's a problem. So many neglect what they love illustrating in an attempt to be the "standard proffessional artist" but as soon as an artist deprives themselves of what they are interested in including in their personal artworks, I can bet they'd probably lose the passion for it. I have plenty of non-space themed artworks influenced by it somehow too =p
