start of a new ill

This is the start of a new illustration. We had to come up with a drawing to illustrate a story, It's kinda long so I can't really go into alot of detail. The gist of it is about a father and a son's relation ship that focused around hunting and the father's obsession with guns. And there's a divorce, they grow apart and the dad kills himself. Kid inherets all the guns, regrets their relationship and goes a little nuts. Something along those lines, hope i didn't spoil the story for anyone.

So my original idea was going to be a small silhouette of the son walking into the woods with his rifle while in the background the a huge looming profile of his dad which is made out of guns. In the end my teacher decided that the face made out of guns was a strong enough image to stand on its own.

Here's the base ink drawing of the dad.

And here's a rough test of how I might incorporate the guns into his head. It's too subtle though. I'm going to try and look for ways to convert larger shapes on the face into gun form.
