Benedict Cumberbatch - Star Trek: Into Darkness


Ok, so you all know who the latest, most amazing, actor is... right? You should. If you do, you'd see something like Butterball Crumblecook and know it's supposed to be Benedict Cumberbatch. Yeah.
Although I haven't seen Star Trek: Into Darkness yet (need to see the prequel before), This is one of my favorite pictures of Benedict. At least, the favorite that is drawable.

This is the start of my new style of drawings. I'm adding way more texture into the drawings now. The texture of the skin, how the light effects different surfaces, making sure the picture actually has the same sort of uniqueness of every person.

The Right Chord


Although this was a filler drawing, this one is a favorite among many of my friends. Maybe that's because I have friends who play the guitar...

Like I said, it was a filler drawing, as I did it for an art show, and I pounded out drawings I thought would sell. Which non did, however it was good, and now I have this drawing, so it'll be nice to have on hand for that one person who can't live without it.

The 11th Doctor



So, this is my first drawing of anyone in Doctor Who. Why did I do it? Well, I got inspired by a friend of mine, you know her here as Vrenith. You, Vrenith, inspired me to pick up my pencil and do a drawing of this doctor. You did a fantastic piece of Mr. Smith, and I couldn't let the urge to draw him get away, so I found a picture I wanted ("needed") to do.

I may go back and touch up the shading, but for now this is it.

The Knight Watch


Happy 1st of October everyone!

To kick off this wonderful month, here is Batman. Now, I have no idea where this batman is from, nor which movie, but all I know is it's Batman. Yeah. You can tell I'm a Marvel fan.
Though this is my second Batman drawing, I think I like this one more tha the other one I did.

Captain Jack Sparrow


Though I've never watched Pirates of the Caribbean (yes, I know I need to!), I already know that Jack Sparrow is quite the character. Ahem, Captain Jack Sparrow. Sorry.

With all the beads, shells, braids, and dreads, his hair is a challenge all in itself. But to get Jack to look like Jack, it's the eyes that make the character. The hat was probably one of my favorite parts to do. Well, besides adding the facial hair and eyeliner/eyes...

I did this hilarious character for two reasons. 1st; I've been needing to do Jack for a while now. And 2nd; I did him for an art show I was in recently. He was my most popular drawing there. Some funny stories that went along with it, though. Mostly involving ladies between the ages of 50-80 fawning over him, and telling me that I had drawn their "boyfriend"... too funny!!

Hero in Shining Iron


My third Iron Man drawing.

Now, the only real reason I did this drawing was for an art show I'm participatin in. I recently sold an Iron Man drawing, as well as a painting of the man in iron. So he seems to be a popular person as far as sales goes, so why not do another one of him. It was much easier to do this drawing now that I know how to do the metal.
Really getting to know the subject you're drawing really plays into how the final piece looks, as well as the time it takes to actually do it.

The Key to Erebor

The Key to Erebor.

One of the most loved props of The Hobbit, the key to the hidden Dwarven door that Gandalf presents to Thorin Oakenshield. This was actually a good study as opposed to a challenge. It's taking a 3D object with lots of angles and sides, and move it onto a 2D piece of paper. If you're looking to brush up on your perspective skills, but find a cup, cube or cone to simple, but find people too hard, this is a fantastic prop! I would do this all over again if I had to, and I might one day.

Senator Padmè - The Face of Peace


It's been a year since I last did a Padmè drawing, and with an art show coming up I thought it's high time I did another.
I went and searched Padmè photos, and ran across this one. The original photo was huge. Like, 1000 by 1200 pixels. Ok, so not so big, but large for Star Wars photos.
This is Padmè's Senate outfit, the one created for a scene that was deleted in the end. However, it was one of the best promo shots. Full of detail, contrast and is a good showcase of Padmè's strength in the Senate.

Orcrist


With The Hobbit coming out December of 2012, and the second and third instalments the next two following years, there has been hype around the new swords that the characters use.
In the original LOTR series, there was lots of hype over Sting, or Anduil, Frodo and Aragorns' swords. A decade later, the attention has turned to Orcrist and Glamdring, Thorin Oakenshield & Gandalfs' swords.
I personally think Orcrist is a fantastic sword, and is elegant in every way (it IS an Elvish sword after all, even if Thorin {a dwarf} is using it).

What does the elvish on the handle say, I'm curious...

The Sword of Lady Eowyn


Quite like King Theoden's sword, Lady Eowyn's sword is quite noble looking. With the same type of hilt, the curving horse heads, this sword is quite pretty. The hilt, on the other hand, is quite different from Theoden's. The intricate detail makes up for the larger, clunkier pommel.

This drawing was a lot of fun, with the different textures and many different shapes. Getting the curling horse heads on the backboard correct was hard enough, but adding the up and down wood texture made keeping the smooth, lighter lines a challenge.

Sting - Bilbo's Sword


Sting, the second sword in my collection of LOTR swords.
If you notice, this sword is actually different from the one that Frodo uses in Lord of the Rings. Bilbo's version vs Frodo's version.
There is no elvish script on the hilt, nor is there any script running down the swirl that runs down the blade. These things I didn't notice until I started drawing it. I will be doing two drawings of Sting, the other drawing Frodo's version

Herugrim - King Theoden's Sword (Hilt)

Herugrim, King Theoden's sword from the Lord of the Rings.

This is my frist drawing of my LOTR sword series. The hardest thing to draw in this type of drawing is most definitely getting things symmetrical. The second thing is the wood. Making the grain flow without drawing over the horse outline was hard. Keeping the grain of the wood straight but making it darker in places and lighter in others.

My favorite thing about Herugrim is the heart-shaped hilt. It's so different compared to most other swords. Weta did a fantastic job of making each sword unique but keeping it real.

Two Medicine Mountain


 This is actually a mountain that I drew for a Mexican family I know. They, at least the kids, had never seen snow before, and that was my inspiration to do a mountain drawing for them.

Superman - The Man of Steel

Superman (aka Henry Cavill) in Man of Steel

This is my first drawing in about 6 weeks. And it's something as complicated as Superman's armor. Of course. This drawing took me quite a few days to really get into it, and complete the armor. The armor which I wish I could completely redo, if I had the choice. But this is part of a series of drawings that I'm either doing, or expanding on.

Canadian Cougar


A Canadian Cougar

I did this for a friend of mine that visited from Mexico. As a goodbye gift, I drew her a Canadian animal to take back home to remind her of her visit to Canada. I choose a cougar. Once again, I didn't leave myself enough time to put in as much detail as I would've liked, like darkening it, but I'm happy with how it turned out.

Fili the Dwarf

My drawing of Fili the Dwarf

Those of you who've seen the Hobbit know that there are 13 dwarves in the movie. For those of you who haven't... there are 13 dwarves in the movie. Randome LOTR info, Fili is older brother to Kili, and both dwarves are nephews to Thorin Oakenshield.

I will say that this is one of those drawings that I had FUN working on. Some drawings drag on, and on, and on, while some drawings are lots of fun to sit down and add a whack load of detail. This was one of the latter.
I think I put over 16 hours into this dwarf, which is getting to be my new standard time that it takes me to do a human portrait. But because of all that hair (and this isn't the hairiest dwarf!) I had to be more careful with the lighting and how much contrast I had to put in. Which pieces to leave white, and which ones to darken completely.
All-in-all I like how everything turned out. And hopefully this won't be my last drawing of dwarves. Thorin was going to be next, but I couldn't find a picture I wanted to do that hasn't been done a hundred times already.

Phil Wickham

 For those of you who don't know Phil Wickham is, this is he.

Phil Wickham is a musician who does worship music. My brother and I had the opportunity to see Phil this past week, and I got to give him this drawing. Phil's most popular song Heaven Fall Down was the starting song, and I will tell you, if you get the chance to go see him, DO IT. His show was phenomenal!
The thing is that I started the drawing last week (Jan 12-13ish) but didn't start on the shading until the next week where I promptly started the day before the concert. Smart I know. I worked on it for that day, and the next for that evening.
And this is the first human drawing that I've done on this new paper I'm starting to use, so that's why his skin looks super smooth. I used the same paper on the Evenstar drawing.

Guide


Greetings one and all, and welcome to 2013!
Although this drawing isn't nearly as exciting as many of my others, I just wanted to do a post saying "Happy New Year".
I was bored one day, so I scrolled through one of my horse pictures folders, and I ran across a photo I couldn't resist drawing. So I set out on the adventure to drawing another animal. I don't know when I did this, but this post has been waiting for over a month to be posted. I just didn't want to post it until now.

On another note, I wanted to let you guys know that last year, on January 1st, 2012, I posted my Bono drawing. At that time, I had 40,000 views on my drawings blog (this one). I want to let you guys know that in one year I have gone up 50,000 views making it a grand total of 90,000 views! Thank you guys so much!!! It has blown my mind that I have had 50,000 views this year!!

Evenstar Necklace 2012


In honor of The Hobbit releasing, I did another drawing of the Evenstar. No, this isn't another drawing of Gandalf (though one IS going to be coming), or Kili or Fili, nor Dwalin or Balin, or Ori, Nori or Dori. Not Biffer, not Boffor, nor Olin, Gloin or Bomber or the leader Thorin. Just the Evenstar.

This is the longest, most drawn out (pardon the pun), most time consuming drawing I've done. It took 5 days, about 13-15 hours, and a whole lot of patience!

I'd drawn the Evenstar back in 2008, and in 2010. In keeping with the theme that I do a drawing of it every two years, I thought I'd keep with the tradition, and do one before the year is out. I also just got new paper, and wanted to try it out. I think both worked out well.

Definitely one of my favorite drawings to date! Even if it isn't a person.
