Kraftbook 4 :: Omec Inspired Germbots

Kraftbook 4, originally uploaded by OneSevenNine.

Here is another goodie from the Kraftbook I found. This illustration is inspired by the Olmec heads.

"The most recognized aspect of the Olmec civilization are the enormous helmeted heads. As no known pre-Columbian text explains them, these impressive monuments have been the subject of much speculation. Once theorized to be ballplayers, it is now generally accepted that these heads are portraits of rulers, perhaps dressed as ballplayers. Infused with individuality, no two heads are alike and the helmet-like headdresses are adorned with distinctive elements, suggesting to some personal or group symbols." -Wikipedia Online

I really enjoyed this kraft paper and am super excited I found this book. I think the next couple of days are going to be filled with some intense sketching. Take care!
