Pencil sketch – Eleanor Tomlinson
This is a pencil sketch on A4 paper of Emperor Palpatine. After watching the new trailer for Star Wars Episode IX and hearing the Emperors cackling laugh, it inspired me to pick up a pencil and do this sketch. The quote is from Return of the Jedi to Luke Skywalker just before the Emperor… No spoilers for the 30 odd year old movie 😀

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.

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.
Deckard sketch 2
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…
