The Melancholy Goblin King by lyssaspex The Melancholy Goblin King by lyssaspex
Done for a sketch blog, the theme of the week was to draw a villain from a movie. So I thought I'd draw Jareth the Goblin King from Labyrinth, one of my favorite movies growing up.

I tried to get Mr. Bowie's likeness down the best I could (since I know it'd be sacrilegious if I didn't), all while keeping within my own style. I've also been trying to make a habit of being tighter with my pencils, so this was good practice.

May color this later on~

This is really cool Lyss.
The hand looks a little funny though. Your pencils are
getting sharper.

It's a shame BadAss Zone is declared dead.

Probably because I used my own hand for reference, but that's what you get for having squid fingers.

This wasn't for the Badass Zone, it was for a sketch blog on tumblr.
