Colored Pencil Drawing of Marty McFly and the Delorean from Back to the Future

To complete the unofficial trilogy of heroes and their vehicles, I decided to do a full color Marty McFly with his Delorean. And, as I was working on it, decided to put the clock tower in in the background as well.

Colored Pencil Drawing of Marty and Doc from Back To The Future / II

Marty-and-Doc-full-color-copyAnother movie I like doing drawings for is Back To The Future. But I’ve never done a drawing of Marty and Doc together. This image is pretty iconic–which is also shared in both the first and second movies (although I do think this is probably at the beginning of Back To The Future II after they remade this scene). Anyway, the drawing is made with colored pencils on 9×12 Strathmore Bristol Smooth paper.

Colored Pencil Marty McFly on Black Artagain Paper


If you know me, you’ll know that while drawing was my first love, music is probably my second love. I started a Christian music website in 1996 as a sophomore in high school on a little free web page on Angelfire.com. In 1998, the site moved to Jesusfreakhideout.com where it still is and continues to thrive (and just celebrated 19 years!), and it is still a major passion of mine. It’s always fun when these passions get to intersect and come together in some way, and recently I had the idea of doing an original drawing for the next album cover in a series of free MP3 compilations JFH has been releasing annually. The title is “Songs We’ve Been Trying To tell You About (and Others We Haven’t)” (I love unnecessarily long album titles, especially fun and literal ones in a tongue-in-cheek kind of way). The other album covers used photographs I took as a base for the album art, and I decided to run with the “Songs We’ve Been Trying To Tell You About” theme with this image of Marty McFly in “Back To The Future” playing Van Halen for his Dad (in the past as a teenager) to wake him up. If anything, it was a self-entertaining reference that I liked. I presented it to the JFH team and they loved it — more than I thought they might (I braced myself for them to think it was cheesy, to be honest). And so… here it is below as an album cover. 🙂 If you’d like the free mp3 compilation, by the way, you can grab it (and the others) at http://www.JFHMusic.com or http://www.Jesusfreakhideout.com.

Pencil Drawing of Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly with Crispin Glover as George McFly

Marty-George-DinerWhile looking for a good photo of Christopher Lloyd online to draw, I ended up taking a screenshot of one of my favorite scenes in Back To The Future to consider drawing later on. I decided to make it my next project and also decided to return to the graphite / colored pencil hybrid by coloring his vest with Prismacolor colored pencils. I’m mostly happy with the end result (and decided to hang it next to my office 🙂 )

Pencil Drawing of Christopher Lloyd as Doc Brown in Back To The Future


As an avid Back to the Future fan, I’m surprised I haven’t thought of drawing Doc sooner. And good pics of him are hard to find online. However, I thought this one was out of the ordinary and captured the character well enough to attempt. I’m pretty happy with the outcome. It’s a fully graphite drawing, done freehand, with the black areas done in an ebony pencil. I worked on this one from January 31, 2014 to February 4, 2014

Pencil Drawing of Desmond from the show LOST

Next in my LOST series is Desmond. Definitely my favorite character from the show. I like the photo and thought it was a unique one to work on… (February 2013)

Michael J. Fox as Marty McFly Portrait

After doing a marker drawing of Marty McFly, I had wanted to do a pencil portrait of one of my favorite film characters. After one attempt of a different source photo failed, I was pretty happy with this one’s outcome. And it’s another example of, what I feel is, drawing in the background adding to the result.
