Exploration of a shot from the previous week
Inktober is starting in a few days so I'm not sure if there will be much time for my usual things, so look for more of these later in the fall.

Disney Un-Disneyed In Color VI (D)

A few more on this fine Thursday afternoon.  Sketches for these here.
This is one of my favorites of the whole series so far.

The broooooding.

I had some color issues with this one but it works.
Almost caught up!

It's Pronounced On-Ed-Ers (D)

Apparently yesterday was #nationalonehitwonder day (since apparently EVERY day is National SOMEthing Day) but anyway, it was a good excuse to take this old sketch idea I had, polish it up and throw some paint on it. Definitely my favorite one-hit Oneders.

I also decided to add Mr. White, marking the second time I've drawn Tom Hanks, in the last month and ever, because Faye always seemed a bit lonely down there.

Here's the original, circa 2012.

Little Shoppa (D)

"On the 23rd day of the month of September, in an early year of a decade not to long before our own, the human race suddenly encountered a deadly threat to its very existence. And this terrifying enemy surfaced, as such enemies often do, in the seemingly most innocent and unlikely of places..."

Commissions Aplenty (D)

Aaaaand here are some recent commissions from the last few months to round things out.  All very different projects from different sources.
Anniversary preset from Rachel to Jermiah, two great Survivor friends!

A totally different kind of proposal piece.  Her hair went through two extreme color changes (I left off most of the text because it seemed personal, and also... it's in Spanish). 
Cover art for a single written as the theme to a one-woman show in London (commissioned by a friend of Kimberley from the Great British Baking Show, who saw my drawing of her and contacted me... you just never know).


Dancing BFFs via Instagram.
I have a few more to catch up but I'll leave them for next week.  I love the variety of work I've been commissioned to do lately!

Fresh Figure Drawings for August 2017 (D)

I'm also past due to post the latest in Figure Drawing Friday selections.

Too many dudes.  I'll have to fix that in September.

Disney Un-Disneyed In Color V (D)

I missed last week, but it's all good.  Here's the next trio in the Disney Un-Disneyed In Color series.  I always get excited when I reach this point. (Sketch versions here.)
Poor little waif.  At least he doesn't look much like a Hobbit anymore.
I actually have some design issues in hindsight but I decided to leave them be.



All the roses!
Hasta la vista.
