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.
I haven’t done much from the Avatar/Korra universe and this was a really fun piece to do.
Part of the challenge of some of the character pieces is to make them pop whilst still really only focusing on the one character. Lin uses her earth bending abilities to bend metal so I wanted to show off her ability in spectacular form 🙂
I’m not sure I’ll get sick of drawing “badass Janeway” anytime soon. I’ve gone with an original setting but this time she’s emptied several phasers already facing off against whatever foe she is (I’ll leave that up to you).
Even though I’ve drawn a few Picards over the last week or so I’m really loving the diversity in this mix.
It’s a delight to be drawing characters from all over the galaxy LOL.
If you want your own little sketch card collection the Commission pieces are still available though there is 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).
Rue McClanahan’s owner gave me a bit of backstory on her:
She is a rescue mutt and I like to say she’s “from the trash”. Perhaps she could be a space dog on a trash planet? I dunno. Maybe she’s rummaging around a junkyard? Her name is Rue McClanahan and she only has one tooth. My friend found her abandoned in a park near a gnarly part of Philadelphia. She is the light of my life.
This was doubly fun because I could just play around with the costumes and the location.
