Rogue One

Like many of you I am a big fan of Star Wars and Rogue One was no exception. I actually liked it more than Force Awakens! I knew at some point I would create a picture but was not expecting the way it happened. It kind of happened without me knowing it. You see, I usually sketch thumbnail drawings and such until an idea hits me, this one happened differently. I was casually looking at possible reference photos and clipping them from the web and then just started "frankensteining" them together in my iPhone app (ArtStudio) when I had a few minutes to kill here and there. Then when I thought I had something, I just began drawing and painting thinking all that while that this was just a "warm up". I was actually quite surprised when I realized that I had something a bit more. I then transferred the file to my desktop and added more to the composition and pushed it a bit further. I was happy with the results especially since I was coming out of quite an artistic funk when it started.

I love the character of Negan on the Walking Dead. I love how he chews up the scenery whenever he shows up! My wife, however, can't stand him. Not the actor mind you, she can't stand how awful a person he is and is totally rooting against him. I think that just show how an effective character he is. My hope is that I hope his character arc is a good one and he finishes strong and leaves me wanting more.

Tom Riddle!

I don't have much Harry Potter pieces but I always seem to noodle on a piece when my wife and son have a marathon viewing. 

I've always wondered about the backstory of Tom Riddle and how Dumbledore is partially responsible. I find it similar to the Obi Wan/Annikin relationship. 

So here is Tom Riddle. Unfortunately the resolution is lower than normal as I did this one on our old first generation iPad as I wanted to draw a bit bigger than my iPhone allows.

Obi Wan Kenobi

If you have been paying attention you must already know that Obi Wan is easily my favorite character from Star Wars. So much so that I was even thrilled that he got a mention in Rogue One.  I have been in a bit of a dry spell artistically lately and I was hoping that by drawing one of my favorite characters would help.
