I don’t often get asked to do slash or shipping pieces. They’re generally all pretty tasteful when I do (I stay under a PG rating when it comes to hand holding and the like) and I don’t mind doing them.
I guess whilst the above image isn’t canon (that we know of) Sam and Jack were a confirmed thing, they just never acted on it because of professionalism etc. Which is kind of refreshing
I really enjoyed Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, which is probably a bit of an understatement as I consider it one of the best comic book films to be released. The artwork was stunning, the story a delight and the premise a LOT of fun.
I’m always excited to see (or hear) Nic Cage in a film that doesn’t suck which can be a rarity. But I loved Spider-Man Noir and his eventual obsession with the Rubik’s Cube.
I will admit though I think my favourite scene was the stinger at the end, which says a lot because I generally loath the stingers at the end. The other exception to the rule is the Captain Marvel one.
So I’ve been jonesing to draw Noir ever since I saw the film and I made the time today to do it.
I was commissioned to draw a family in the various different Trek era styles and they were a lot of fun to do. I’m not usually a fan of drawing “people” directly as there’s a lot more pressure on you than with anonymous famous people or made up characters but the reference photos supplied were perfect and the client has been really awesome about letting me just do my own thing with them.
I specifically chose to shake up a couple of the eras so the card set was more interesting to look at as a whole.
You can definitely get your own custom sketchcards though I do warn you that there is a long waiting list right now but you’ve got to be in line in order to get to the front whenever that is LOL
Part two of the characters with their companions (part one of three) and I get to visit a galaxy far far away. I remember BB8 was the first character I drew from the new Star Wars films and it was long before The Force Awakens came out.
He’s definitely a fun character to draw and of course the Star Wars aesthetic is such a recognisable one so it’s actually a real pleasure to get asked to draw anything from Star Wars.
Commission pieces are still available though there is quite a bit of a wait right now (if you are keen on getting one I would still lock it in now so you secure your spot in the line LOL). I suspect I will be closing them at some stage in the near future for sanity reasons lol.
The current commission set I’m working on outside of the big Batman piece is a short series of people with their pets, starting with Data and Spot.
I tried to make sure I got the table right whilst still focusing on Data and Spot, I love the idea of the android aboard who can only operate within his programming has the most chaotic room mate in existence, the humble cat.
Obviously this isn’t for sale and is a commissioned fan art piece.
I had the 4K Blade Runner going whilst I worked on this one and it just looks wonderful. When working out what to do for Blade Runner I knew I could go for the traditional gun held up type of pose but I always just love how lived in the world of Blade Runner looks and a big part of that is the food.
The biggest challenge here was going to be the background because I was determined to include neon signs!
I’m embarrassed to admit it but I don’t believe I’ve ever read Peter Pan, I may have when I was very young but I have no recollection of ever doing so. I may have to rectify this sometime in the near future as so many wonderful quotes come from this story.
I’m always wary when I approach any illustration of an animated character as it is very easy to emulate the style in which they are originally drawn. Disney isn’t too bad but very distinct styles can be a little overpowering. Like being stuck in a room with someone who has a thick accent, the natural inclination to take on some of the mannerisms are there even in drawing.
