I wonder if there was an induction pack for the Red Skull when he arrived on Vormir and was turned into a Stone Keeper? I’d like to think that he lost it on the first day when he threw it over the side of the cliff in a blind rage.
122 days later he discovers that he can float around instead of walking like us chumps.
Well I discovered that it is more than likely a fact that I have never drawn Zek before. I tried to remember if had or not but couldn’t come up with anything and I do think I’d remember all those wrinkles!
I really wanted to reflect his cheeky manner maybe get him mid Dabo betting or something like that, a last run at the tables before he retires.
Normally I would avoid drawing a mash up of a property that I’m not completely familiar with and I haven’t watched Supernatural since season two which as I understand it is a VERY long time ago now LOL.
So this started today whilst painting I had Avengers Infinity War on in the background and I looked up in the scene where Thanos and Gamora arrive on Vormir.
They encounter the Red Skull who appears to be some sort of supernatural being who’s job it is to guide people to the soul stone.
Which got me thinking, surely there aren’t that many people rocking up to get the soul stone, so what does the Red Skull do every other day?!? What’s a regular day in the life look like for this guy now?
I’ve been pretty slack in my cinema outings in the last couple of years but I’ve started making a trip to the cinema in the morning a new weekly/fortnightly ritual. So far I’ve been lucky, as I really liked Glass and of course Alita I loved.
I’m a fan of the source material in that I’ve read them and enjoyed them and even still own a couple of editions. The story always struck me as a great cyberpunk story but going into the film I didn’t have any expectations.
The film would be what it would be and I’d kill a couple of hours in air conditioning.
The world that unfolding though was a feast for the eyes with a fully realised cyberpunk city meticulously crafted. The action sequences were all really well done and exciting and there’s a genuine story throughout.
A great pleasure to watch and I look forward to getting a “The Art Of” book when it’s released.
Remember I did a Calypso commission piece? Well I did and it was a fun little experiment piece but at the time I mentioned that I preferred not to be as experimental when handling commission requests. I assured the owner that I would follow up with an additional more traditional approach to it and here it is.
I actually think the hologram effect isn’t too bad actually so I’m happy I tried it both ways.
In the past I’ve resisted drawing “real people” simply because the idea of breaking a person down to basic shapes to portray them especially in this style can be a daunting task because whilst it’s one thing to draw a larger than life character it’s another thing to draw someone directly.
But enough people who have ordered up commissions have requested themselves in the drawings that I’m very quickly moving past that reservation and embracing it.
Here we have a set of TOS inspired sketch cards, the family who requested them sent me the best clearest photos for reference.
A real pleasure to work with!
On that note a special thank you to everyone who has ordered commission pieces and have been waiting patiently for my life to settle down enough so I could really start working my way through them. You are all appreciated so much!
