I drew our favourite astromech for a “how to” tutorial over on Patreon. If you not a supporter over there yet come on over, it’s only $1 a month and you get access to my daily journal and exclusive previews of tutorials like this one before the rest of the world.
I’m aiming at 100 patrons after which I’ll be getting a tattoo of the Enterprise on my arm!
The hardest thing here was deciding on a skin tone I was happy with, I compromised and went halfway between film and comic book version. Drax is a funny one, I didn’t think I’d like the character (and visually he’s so different from the Drax the Destroyer I grew up with) but he really grows on you.
I appreciate the effort that has gone in to making Rocket a fleshed out character and not just window dressing in the films. I admittedly struggled with his face here because of my no nose approach and the nose does kind of make him but I think you can still tell who he is.
So I’m finally cramming a little extra time in to draw the new series of Marvel sketch cards that I’m working on. I’ve got the full list of characters already planned out and I’ve managed to even ink three of them, just colouring. As with all the Marvel characters, the version I pick is based purely on my mood that day and today was Baby Groot!
I really enjoy drawing the Marvel characters because in their traditional form (I just mean the costumes I’m most familiar with) they’re so colourful and fun and when you put them together like this I think they just look cool.
I did these last year and since then some of them have gone their seperate ways (I might have a few of them still).
I should do another series of these – what characters do I need to add???
This was a series I was doing and I really should try and finish it some time, I think there’s about ten characters or so to go.
I really loved the Masters of the Universe, it’s such a rich set of colourful characters which made me want to draw them in the first place. I have a few already inked and some pencil sketches so I will get back into it but I also just wanted somewhere to collect them all in one place.
I used to do these for the Star Trek TOS episodes (there’s a lot of episodes though in one season of TOS) so I’m going to resurrect these pencil & watercolour episode posters for my rewatch of The Orville. Apparently, we’re not seeing new The Orville until December which is a long time between drinks LOL.
Thought this was a great first episode and it holds so much promise for a rich universe to discover.
If you follow me on ummm well pretty much anywhere I guess, you’ll know that I’m a crossfitter. Right now we’re in a strength building cycle and part of the strength component today was Sumo Deadlifts and whenever I think of Sumo deadlifts I have a picture of E. Honda from Street Fighter in my head.
Don’t critique his form, it’s hard to draw hook grip and besides, he might slap you.
I set a couple of hours aside just for me this afternoon and I realised I hadn’t seen The Terminator in a while and not on the big HD TV so I cranked the volume and pulled the curtains and had a blast.
Terminator really holds up well, even the eyeball scene which is the scene that always stands out for me ever since I was a young’un. I think the fake head actually adds to the horror of the sequence and so I wanted to draw that and it’s gross.
