I started a sketch before this one — and a new detailed pencil portrait — but put those on hold once I picked up my first-ever pad of black paper. I keep a folder of images on my iPad of ones that I may some day like to draw. […]
Continuing a run of sketches on toned paper in quicker bursts of time, I opted for this Colored Pencil Sketch of Rocket from Guardians of the Galaxy. Love the film. Love the character, and I thought I’d give this one a shot. It was a lot of fun. The original […]
The same night I finished Ron Perlman as Vincent, I decided to try to punch out a quick sketch. Less than 2 hours later (with some of that time being spent drawing this while watching TV), I had this Darth Vader colored pencil drawing. It’s on 9×12 Toned Gray paper. […]
I don’t take a lot of commission work mostly due to the time it takes to do a portrait — and so I also don’t necessarily want to draw certain pictures people want me to do. But this one was pretty interesting. I remember my mom being into “Beauty and […]
I took a stab next at a drawing of Henry Cavill as Superman one night… but after failing to nail a different pose properly. I scrapped it and went with this one instead. Mostly happy with the result… Etsy links for prints: https://www.etsy.com/listing/234428182/drawing-print-of-henry-cavill-as
This was pretty fun too — trying to capture Emmet from a screenshot from “The LEGO Movie.” This one was just a couple hours one night while watching TV. Prints are available upon request!
My third attempt at doing a full, quick sketch in one night went to Peggy Carter from Captain America: The First Avenger — a character that’s been making waves on TV in the show “Agent Carter.” This one was pretty fun, but tricky to get the likeness down quickly.
The next night, I worked on the Toned Gray paper for the first time. I decided to try a new pose of Arrow and see if I couldn’t just improve on the other likeness. I liked the vibe of this pose too. I used Prismacolor and Faber-Castell colored pencils […]
While working on a commission piece and also while working on another portrait, I felt inspired to visit Blick and get some different papers to experiment on. Also, I wanted to try my hand at some quick original drawings that I could work on in a few hours and sell […]
I think it was soon after Season 2 finished airing that I watched Season 1 of “Arrow” on NetFlix and then Season 2 on Blu-Ray before the recent 3rd season began. While the first season was a little TOO rife with teen-style drama, by now the show is in full-fledged […]
After finishing Drax, and after having re-watched the film with some friends who hadn’t seen it yet, there was a shot of Pratt as Star-Lord in the final scene that just screamed to be drawn. So I loaded it up on my iPad, took a screenshot and used it as […]
