A lot of times when I'm not happy with something I drew, it's because of the expression in the eyes. They say everything. If you don't nail it just perfect, you might as well just bag the rest of the drawing. I've started to draw extra eyes on the side in sketches when I'm not happy how how the first inkjob came out.
Pirates of the Carribean, Dead man's Chest is a great example of good eyes. Ok Movie, but I LOVED Davey Jones in that movie. His eyes and speech were just perfect. One of my favorite characters in a while.
The ink spattering was just a way to link to the theme on the cover of this alternative weekly assignment "The Rant Issue"
