Battle Drawings

Something fun from a group of 3rd year VCD students:

Remember when you were a little kid - those big, flat drawings of death an destruction that could keep you going for ages? Me and a few other artists, as kind of a weekly relaxation ritual, go out and draw these big collaborative battles, complete with sound effects and blood spatters, occaisionally. After full days of drawing strictly designed, tightly thought-out stuff, it's super-relaxing to let go like this. One of the key parts of it, though, is that you have to draw direct from brain to paper - no time to think about what you're doing, and the coolness of it. Just DRAW!
