Thanks for a great time Felicia Day and the Geek & Sundry team. Being in your company was the highlight of San Diego for me this year!
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.
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.
I met the inspirational Felicia Day again, the first time was at the Starfury event in London earlier this year. It was at that event I was introduced to her work and discovered what a hard working, funny and down to earth person she is!
Don’t throw away that scifiartist.com card I gave you! lol 😀 I’ll be doing a Felica painting in some shape or form very soon so watch this space!

Earlier in the day I’d been to the Geek & Sundry panel. There was a big queue to get in and even then I missed the start and was stuck at the back, However it was a very funny panel and worth the wait!
