Drawing of Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

This one was really fun. I decided to draw Felicity Jones as Jyn Erso to get ahead of the upcoming film (which I’m super stoked for!), and as I worked on her portrait in colored pencil, I decided to abandon the original background for Darth Vader. And then it just felt right to add in the Death Star… Both Vader and the Death Star are graphite while Jyn is in colored pencil. (All freehand)

Colored Pencil Drawing of Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman

The best thing about Batman v Superman may have been Gal Gadot’s Wonder Woman. And I have to admit I’m excited for the upcoming solo film in 2017. This is a freehand colored pencil drawing of Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman from the upcoming movie.

Updated Han Solo Colored Pencil Portrait

While talking to a coworker about this drawing, we wondered why I never just drew the part of his gun that was cut off in the original drawing and put them together for the prints made of it. … so I went home that night and did just that (and reworked his face a little bit and some of the other details). It was kind of fun, and it was satisfying to have fixed it.

Pencil / Colored Pencil Ghostbusters Commission

And then someone wants to pay you to draw your four favorite characters from your favorite movie. Only drawback is you have to give it up when it’s done. 🙂 This is a pencil drawing with red colored pencil accents of all four of the only Ghostbusters for me. 🙂

Pencil Drawing of Emily Blunt

And how can you not love Emily Blunt? After “The Adjustment Bureau” and “Edge of Tomorrow,” I was officially a fan. I’m interested to see her take up the mantle as Mary Poppins in the upcoming sequel too…

Colored Pencil Drawing of Kate Beckinsale

Gotta love Kate Beckinsale. “Serendipity” is definitely one of my favorite romantic comedies. I’d been wanting to draw Kate recently but struggled with the first attempt (actually, first two attempts if I recall) and decided to try this one. I wasn’t too satisfied with it, so you may see another attempt in the near future…

Colored Pencil Portrait of Richard Dean Anderson as MacGyver

With the resurgence of MacGyver with the recent TV reboot, I felt inclined to draw a childhood hero again. I had drawn one or two Mac portraits back in the 90s — one for a friend’s birthday — and I was just never happy with how they turned out. I decided to try to find a picture of RDA to draw that wasn’t too overpowering with the mullet action to try to draw all in color. So this drawing above is all freehand colored pencil.

And, for the record, I watched the pilot for the reboot and it was atrocious. You can’t replace Richard Dean Anderson.

Lebron and Dwayne Colored Pencil Commission Piece


Every once in a while I take a commission project. This one proved more difficult than I’d… hoped. Ha. It was larger than most pieced I do and trying to get everything sized just right (freehand) was so challenging…
