I’ve been practicing my line-work. Limitation is black and white only, so I can’t do any crazy shading
Here’s one I started of Immortan Joe from Mad Max: Fury Road.
Based on this image:
Basically what I did is put the image on the bottom layer of photoshop, then draw on top of it using a pen tablet and four-ish shades of gray.
Then once I have something that looks right, I remove the bottom layer and we end up with grays, like this.
This could use a bunch more polish and some color.
Not sure I will do it, but who knows?
Turns out drawing all the Doctors is a really good way to practice drawing people — and the variation of backgrounds is a good excuse to try different painting tricks and techniques.
I learned a few new tricks on this one.
I think I could polish it up some more, but I’m running out of steam — so who knows?
I like how this one turned out. I used to really like Van Gogh in art class — his work seemed to show everything in a fierce motion. Dunno how to explain it.
This is my attempt to shoot for something similar — not necessarily in style, but in urgency.
I based the image off of a picture I found by googling “pretty landscape” or something.
I did a painting of Sylvester McCoy, my favorite of the old-school doctors, with Brigadier Alistair Gordon Lethbridge-Stewart — my favorite of the old school companions.
The image reference for this was from the story Battlefield, which was “King Arthur meets UNIT.” Nuff said, amirite?
I like the color palette I ended up working with. It makes the light parts seem lighter and the dark parts darker.
I did a few drawings… well more paintings, of the Doctors (third, fourth and fifth).
I like how they came out — they feel like the correct “mood” for each of em.
I picked out stills from episodes and based the poses on those.
