I’ve been enamored with the ‘Faust’ story for a few years now. For those of you who don’t know, Faust was a great scholar, who feeling like he had learned everything and nothing was a challenge, began to practice sorcery. He eventually summoned the demon Mephisopheles who offered him great magical power in exchange for Faust’s immortal soul. Faust agreed.

I would actually love to make an animator feature based on the story.

Anyway, here’s Faust in his study, examining a demonological text while unbeknownst to him, Mephistopheles looks on, waiting to be summoned.

I’ve been working on this pic for quite a while, off and on now. Theres a lot of detail hidden in the background that I didn’t color visible in the background in full view. You can take a look at the original sketch here
