Alphabeasts: A is for Algul


This is my latest ink for the Alphabeasts project, and hopefully the last one I need to catch up on. I started with “C” (here), coming in a little late, so this one catches me up to the current letter.

An algul is a mythical/legendary vampire woman, in Arabian mythology, and I thought it would make an interesting ink work. I’m having fun playing with harsh light on these inks, and this one is no exception.

The only problem I ran into was that this one was created over an entire week, a few parts at a time, due to life issues. Which is fine, it still worked out. If anything, it’s a reminder that it’s not that I only have 20 minutes to work on something, but that I do have those minutes at all, no matter how few they are.

Here is the ink piece, 5″ x 7″ on 140 lb. Cold Press: A is for Algul. As always, click on the image for a larger view:
