Mother, please forgive me by Thatonegirludontknow Mother, please forgive me by Thatonegirludontknow
Inspired by the most recent episode of Law and Order: SVU. It was a gruesome one.
I've been trying to draw more "scary" things lately. I've been drawing things that are considered "cute" all my life. I've been going for more variety by challenging myself with gore or nightmare fuel drawings.

In the episode of SVU, a girl was found with her face sanded off and her fingers sawed off with power tools. It was so horrifying, it inspired me. This was really fun to draw.

Please let me know what you think! Enjoy...

This is an excellent piece! I love your shading and pose. The posing is really well done. It has perfect balance and weight. The anatomy is really quite good in this piece. The color choice is a rather nice one as well! I am extremely envious of the hands. I really really like this. It took me a few minutes to think of what to put.Now onto the bad.
1:I can't say anything about the coloring of a sanded-off face, as i have never seen one myself, :slamhead: but i feel a but more detail would of been nice for that part.
2: It seems as though the character is meant to be looking at the lack-of-fingers, so the head should be tilted down. I see the face is attempting to be indicating of that. I suggest these for help for head positions [link] [link]
3. The blood on the ground,fingers,and face should be a bit more...splattery-looking? for being sanded off. (As in drippy-on the clothes, etc) [link] [link] [link] [link] [link] [link]
4:Blood tends to have a bit of black in it
5: The background is dull. [link] [link] [link] [link] Perspective tutorials help alot also. Deviantart has a large selection of backgrounds to borrow at the artists discretion.
6:If the hair is going on the collar bone, it should bend accordingly, and the strand on the back of the head isnt attached properly. [link] [link]
7: Theding on the knee should be round and defined.
Well, that's about it! Good job and keep up the good work!

Thank you very much!
And yes I do. I'm watching all the episodes this season! It's a really great show. I know, I was so freaking bummed when Stabler left the show, it's just NOT THE SAME. They were perfect partners! :iconcryingplz:

SUV always has quite intense cases o.o very extreme portrayal here, must have been really impacting because you conveyed a lot of it!

it's only enhanced by the play of dark/light in the skin o.o makes it all that more harsh

Yeah I feel like the last episode was extra gorey. It wasn't exactly a feel-good episode! But yes it did impact me, I'm very glad you noticed. I was inspired! :D Plus, I had a personal incident a couple of days ago that involved a lot of blood coming from my thumb, so it was good to vent some frustration with this.

Yesss ahh thank you so much, that makes me so happy! I tried to convey that she was dead, in a way that there is no color aside from the blood. Tried to make the blood really stand out. I also drew the lines really thick and gritty, to add to the effect. Hehe thank you for the comment! It's very much appreciated!

Wow thank you!! This means a lot, coming from you. :D
Haha well, I'm not so good at coming up with gorey things myself, when I do it always comes out pretty cheesy, but when someone else comes up with the design (Thanks TV!) it's kind of fun trying to recreate that in a drawing!
