The Third Doctor - Jon Pertwee

Image
Didn't mean to take so long to finish this one. Not that this one took longer than the previous two but just finding the time to sit and do it! This one was fun tho. More color than One and Two and getting the jacket to have a velvet look was cool. I think it looks like velvet anyway. He was not my favorite Doctor but I do appreciate all he brought to the series and he did, in my opinion, spell his name a cool way!

Quickies

Out of the blue a few days ago, I thought "how can I do an illustration REALLY fast?" I came up with this simple method. I kinda like it. I like the expediency of it to be sure and the fact that is it 90% vector art. All I did was make a quick pencil sketch, ink it by hand, scan, vector trace and paint in Illustrator. Done! Took about 90 minutes each from concept to finish.


The Second Doctor - Patrick Troughton

Here is the finished version of the 2nd actor to play the Doctor on Doctor Who. Glad to have it finished and still in love with the process but I am wondering if I actually like the sketch better on this one. Hmmmmmm......

Update 5/1/11: Yeah. The sketch was better. Lost too much so I finally redrew the whole thing.

Pan's the Man

Finally painted and it's finally dry. I had this on my easel for almost a year it seems since paintings seemed to stop selling at the Disney Galleries. Right after I found out that I had actully sold the last one I had on property I began to paint again. Was nice too. I really enjoyed it. I really wish the scan of the finished painting looked as good as the original tho. It doesn't come close!! This one will be hard to give up since Pan is my favorite but you all know I need the money so I hope it goes quick. I managed to take pics of it with my iPhone while I was painting. Didn't really mean to track its progress but that is what I would up with. Just wish I had the underpainting and the background only stages captured as well, but I don't. Oh well. The final is 18 x 24, oil on canvas. Enjoy.




Glory Days

As I wait for my newest painting to dry in order to scan it in (and then hopefully sell!), I thought I would go back and re-explore a painting that I am not allowed (to date) sell. Mr. Incredible. I can't remember why I went ahead and painted it since I think I knew I could not get Pixar approval to sell it at Disney. I think I just really wanted to paint it for myself. I thought that you don't see enough of Mr. Incredible in his glory days, and I did like the blue suit better than the generic red one. I thought this is something you would find in his room of memorabilia. I am still very happy with the result and when I was just looking it over I found a preliminary drawing I had rolled up and slipped into the canvas frame. I have no memory of doing that and that is something I don't make a habit of but it was fun to see. I have included that one here as well. Enjoy!
