I had forgotten I had done this. And I think I have it on my website!! I tinkered with it a bit. I like the look of it now as drawn on grey paper with highlights add to it. Did the original drawing in my sketchbook a few years back but the additions were done in ArtRage.

The First Doctor - William Hartnell

Ok, so I took a break from breaking down the book I am working on to finish this one. I honestly didn't have much left to do. I like it and I hope you do too. I am really getting the hang of this method although I am still tinkering here and there. I left the painting parts more "painterly" in this one and I like that and hope to keep growing in that aspect of it. Let me know what you think.

8/21/09 UPDATE: Got a fair crit from my friend Jan so I slightly lowered the contrast in the sweater and removed some of the white from it as well. I am leaving the shirt stark white since, style wise, I decided that I would almost always leave it that way.

This is a post that I hope will continue to motivate me. I am a HUGE procrastinator and I often need a nudge to keep me going or have a deadline or goal to keep me focused. Yesterday I painted this pic of Miss Mindy Marshall for a book that I hope to complete. I have never attempted, let alone finished a book before but I figure anything is worth a shot right now and I REALLY like the story for it. Good thoughts everyone!

I decided I was going to do a pic of every actor to date who played Doctor Who in my new look. I am still thinking about how I want to show them. Do I want one pic each or do I do them all and compose them in a single image?? I don't know. Maybe both. You will just have to wait and see. Just for fun and to have something to post, I thought I would preview my first three sketches and with some b/w painting. All the painting was done in ArtRage and two of the three drawings as well. I was actually worried about showing them because I thought that the finished, full colored ones may not turn out as good. I think these have a certain charm to them and am anxious about moving on. I will tho. Promise.

I figured I would test drive my "new look" with some superheros. I normally would have just gone with Superman but for some reason I wanted to draw Batman and Robin. Who really knows why. This one took a bit longer to do but that might have something to do with having two figures and a backdrop as well. Plus my father in-law visiting and taking time off to have loads of fun! Anyway, the process still went rather smoothly and I am still really pleased with the results. Hope you all diggs!



Here is the progression.
