I’m ashamed to admit I’ve never even done a scribble of the Millenium Falcon! So did this quick pen sketch of it in flight the other night. You can see the initial line drawing, close-up and final drawing below. (Got a plan for a proper Star Wars illustration soon, so probably have a few more of these sketches in next few weeks….)
A friend from work won my donated prize of a large digital illustration of their choice in a company raffle. She’s a big Beyonce fan, so wanted a colourful piece of her performing, printed on a canvas. The below images show the initial sketch, full-colour close-ups, detailed outline close up and then some background options, before the final artwork at the end.
Did a quick sketch for a friend from work, for a charity auction/raffle for her Collieston Rowing Club, who built their own skiff (named ‘Admiral Redsocks‘ after a local character). This was an A4 ink illustration, with the sea lightly coloured using a Derwent Graphitint Watersoluble Pencil.
A quick twenty minute sketch I did of the Trailer Park Boys last night (drawn with a Rotring Tikky Graphic 0.3 pen).
That was a very enjoyable Superbowl, good contest right to the end. Even managed to do an iPad sketch of the highlight – Katy Perry’s dancing shark!
I know, I know, I haven’t posted much in the past few months – but I’ve been busy, I swear!!
The 9-5 hasn’t left much room for personal work recently, but have started taking on freelance stuff again since the turn of the year.
But I PROMISE I’ll post more stuff over the coming months. Gonna set a target of doing at least one funky illustration per week as well, missing my drawing big style. So below is the first piece of the year, an A2 information poster done for the Lecht ski centre in the Cairngorm mountains, which should be on display there soon.
**Added the 2 outline images at bottom to give an idea of how much detail goes into each illustration/character**
A friend of mine asked me to create this digital illustration of his 5 favourite TV characters, done in a Usual Suspects line-up style. Incase you don’t recognise them, from l-r are Don draper (Mad Men), Walter White/Heisenberg (Breaking Bad), Tony Soprano (The Sopranos), Rust Cohle (True detective) and Dr Gregory House (House).
As well as drawing them in their signature clothing, I also added iconic items like Tony’s cigar, Walt Whitman’s ‘Leaves of Grass’ book, etc to the piece. Good fun working on this one!
Here’s the initial sketch layout, final piece and a few close-ups:
Did a quick sketchpad drawing in black pen of Rocket Racoon, with the ‘Guardians of the Galaxy‘ film coming out this weekend. looking forward to seeing it!
This is an old sketch I did, but as it’s the 45th anniversary of Buzz and Neilly-boy sauntering about on the moon I thought I’d post it anyway!
I’m fascinated by space and wish we’d explore it more – imagine all we could achieve if we spent £trillions on that instead of war and nuclear weapons….
A mate asked me to do him a novelty illustrated congratulations card for the wedding of friends of his – the bride plays the saxophone, the groom is a massive Thierry Henry fan. Hence the result below!
