Illustration Friday – Expired

March 25, 2010

My Illustration Friday pic entitled: “Expired”

Had a few ideas for this theme, but felt this one came out the best and probably took the least time:

“Governor Tarkin.  I recognised your foul stench when I was brought on board.” Princess Leia – Star Wars (Episode IV: A New Hope). Shame he had to “expire” at the end of the film.  Such an amazing actor and performance.  Peter Cushing you will be missed.

Quick pencil sketch.  A bit of fun!

I’ve uploaded the process as well, hope it’s of interest.  Still toying with whether to do full colour for the back ground.  Any thoughts?

Stage 01 – Pencil Sketch

Stage 02 – Figure outline and flats done in Photoshop

Stage 03 – Shading

Final Finished piece – with added texture/colour on BG:

Illustration Friday – Brave (late)

March 12, 2010

My LATE entry to last week’s Illustration Friday – theme: Brave

Done with pencil and ink.  A WWI scene from the trenches.

Also did this quick sketch with pencil:

And finally an unfinished pencil/coloured pencil sketch:

Feels like such a long time since my last post that I had to make up for it.  Hope you like!
