I’m not sure if anyone who reads my blog really cares about my artistic pursuits, or the total fail that is my writing pursuits thusfar, blogging about stuff aside. I’m just happy to have readers at all. It’s pretty cool to know that even if only a few people can hear you, they take time out of their busy lives just to read what you have to say. So anyway, like I said, I don’t know if anyone really cares about these wannabe artistic person posts, but I do have a few more finished sketch cards I’d like to share.
I almost left the rest after I colored in the mask, cape, and emblem, because I liked the way it looked, but I think coloring the whole thing was for the best. Although now that I look at it, I should probably do a little shading on his face and chest under the cowl. *sigh* Hopefully I can finish this one in less takes than Dr. Strange.
And now for the good doctor himself:
This was INTENSE. It took me at least four tries to get it like this, and I feel like I can officially say that this one is done. Finally!
Be advised, it may be about to get a lil PG-13 up in hurr.
Yeah, I don’t know how you fight crime in that outfit either. Multiple takes on coloring this one too, since I (admittedly inadvertently) picked up a the right markers for the job on my last trip to the art store. I went back and added the brown over the orange background and shading on the green & yellow parts in round two. I’m not entirely displeased with how it turned out.
Now for some Cleveland Indians and great sports movie bait:
Rockin’ it baseball card style with Rick Vaughn. I didn’t try to go straight portrait on him. Turned out okay though still, methinks. Trying to do my sig in old school topps logo style was pretty fail, but just close enough to know what I was aiming for, I think. On the back it is noted as being a 1/1, lol. 😛 I may be arsed to do a little more face shading and make the skull less lame now that I have a gold gel pen on hand. And don’t even get me started on that logo! Holy crap is it ever hard to draw that small!
Finally, one I’m not done with yet, but one I must show, though I don’t think it comes close to doing it’s subjects the slightest bit of justice…
I heart them so. But alas, the coloring… did not turn out awesomely. So much to fix there. Ms. L came out way too pale and I don’t think I got Maria’s skin tone right either, though it might be okay since I used a pretty dark picture. And that arm… dang, what was I thinking? I goofed up on her hair too I think, but it’s far less noticeable. I’m so sorry, ladies. m(_ _)m My coloring skillz need a lot more work it looks like.
Also, on top of all that fixing I’m somewhat reasonably certain I might be able to pull off (maybe), the gold gel pen will be used on the line in the middle, and maybe on spaces where the autographs go. I confirmed that a sharpie marker should write over the gel pen coloring just fine, and I think whatever color they choose to use on gold that has a slight, uhh, shimmery-ness(?) to it when light hits it right, will look awesome. 🙂
I hope you enjoyed my latest foray into trying to draw pretty pictures. Feel free to commission me if you like my stuff, not that I’d know what to charge. The cards above (except for the last one, obviously) are available as well, though it turns out only one is truly done. Details, details. It’s all in the details.
Now then, it has been a long day and night. I bid you adieu, for now.
Until our next…
