Groot Sketch Card

Groot sketchcard by Lee Sargent 2018

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!

Hopefully I’ll get on a roll with these guys!

Marvel Sketchcards

Marvel Sketch Cards by Lee Sargent

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???

Masters of the Universe Character Collection

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.

We no longer need fear the banana

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.

The original is available on Etsy.

Latchcomb!!! – The Orville

Latchcomb!!!

I can’t even watch this scene without cringing knowing full well what’s to come, the first time I saw it was genius, I knew it was going to be odd but man that was a surprise!

I love the Moclans so much.

Today was sumo deadlift day

Today was sumo deadlift day - illustration featuring E Honda from Street Fighter by Lee Sargent 2018

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.

Hey, buddy you gotta dead cat in there or what?

Hey, buddy you gotta dead cat in there or what?

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.

Police Spinner 44

The Police Spinner takes off.

Whilst I’ve been enjoying a mini-break from the Star Trek 365 pics (I batched up a bunch of sketch cards to give myself some breathing room) I asked my Patrons over on Patreon what they’d like to see.  One of them was something from Blade Runner and after drawing the Galactica the other day I must be in a bit of a vehicle bender because all I could picture was a moody picture of the Spinner taking off in the rain.

Available over on Etsy.

Alien – the xenomorph

Alien – the xenomorph

I’m really enjoying these quick study sketches, they kind of have to be quick because of the Star Trek 365 being all encompassing.  The xenomorph alien has always been a favourite of mine despite the many MANY attempts to completely dilute the franchise LOL.  That first Alien film is still one of the most terrifying and brilliant films and I love the design of the alien.

What other characters would you like to see?
