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.
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 🙂
