Millennium Falcon sketch

Here’s a sketch of the Millennium Falcon being chased by a few Tie Fighters. As The Force Awakens trailer shows the Falcon with it’s new dish I thought I’d draw it 🙂

I did this in my A5 sketchbook using pen and markers.

Felicia Day sketch 4

Felicia Day painting preparation sketch 4.

Here’s a sketch of the headshot I will probably use for the painting. I may change the expression slightly when it comes to painting the picture. This one had a bit more time spent on it and I used some darker pencils so it’s a bit smudged but it turned out okay in the end. The paper wore a bit thin in places where I’d overworked some areas.

Felicia Day sketch 2

Here’s a second Felicia Day sketch in preparation for an oil painting I plan to do shortly. This is a side view of her face. The painting is going to have a Mass Effect theme. This sketch is part of learning the facial features of Felicia Day. Say that tongue twister fast 3 times if you can 😀

Before creating a painting where I have to get the features correct so the face is recognisable, I like to do a few sketches first. By doing this I can learn the facial features of that person from different angles which helps to improve the final piece.

I plan on doing a painting featuring Felica Day, (with a Sci-Fi twist), so here’s a pencil sketch of her as I start to learn her features.

Ridley Scott has signed up to produce and direct a new Blade Runner movie. The news brought me to watch the original movie (Again), and draw a Deckard sketch which I will paint soon.

This is HB mechanical pencil on thick watercolour paper A4 size. Not decided whether to use watercolour or transfer to canvas for an oil painting yet. Watch this space…

 

Robots on the run

This is a digital sketch of some robots on the run from invading persuers in the sky. I haven’t decided whether to complete this one yet or just leave it as a sketch.

Yvonne Strahovski sketches

Following on from the whole Mass Effect Yvonne Strahovski connection I’ve done a few sketches of her. These are pencil drawings using screen captures for reference from my Chuck DVD’s.
