I'd been doing homework all day and really just needed to do something fun so I didn't go inssaaannneee. I decided to color the Sherlock piece I drew a while back. I went with black and white because it was quicker and it just seemed to fit the tone of the show.

Busy Busy

It was really tough to get the dragon to fit in there just right, and I'm still not %100 happy with it, but this is the best I've got. I think color will help too- the bridge will seem much less busy once it's toned down, especially when compared to the bright green dragon.

And come on, you had to know that this was coming. Eleventh Doctor and Amy Pond :)

Tower Bridge- Line

The drawing of Tower Bridge for my next in the London series. The girl and her dragon will be flying over it. I'm really happy with how this came out... I was nervous going into it because there aren't really any good reference photos from this angle, and I've never really done buildings before (which is a big part of why I'm doing this series... because I need to try drawing a city!) So yeah... this was about 8 hours of drawing, I think.

Yeeeahhh, definitely should've been doing homework instead of this. Anyway. Here's the colored Tenth Doctor and Rose Tyler. My roommate wanted the lineart to color, so she printed out a gigantic version of it. It's currently hanging on our fridge.

Also, here's the promotional card that will be in our little Senior Illustration booklet thingy:

Here's the next in my London series:

And last night I REALLY didn't want to do my homework, so I decided to procrastinate by drawing some of the characters from Sherlock. (At least my procrastination is productive... right?) Colored version will be up soon, I'm sure.

AAAAAND this is an update to this post, but it just fit here. I did another procrastination drawing, but this time it was a reward for being so productive today! This is something I've been wanting to draw for a while, but every time I would start it I would get discouraged because it just wasn't working. But some days are magic drawing days-- where everything comes out just right-- and today was one of them. I'm really happy with this... the Tenth Doctor and Rose! <3

Here's my final line in my next piece of the London series. (Also, apparently this is my 100th post. Woo!)

And for comparison, this is a comp that I did before I drew it. I used a photo that I took of Nelson's column and doodled on top of it.

Stuff From Today

Here's some stuff from today.

A tighter sketch for the bus piece.

And a tone-ish study? I guess?

Colored Momotaroooo:
 And colored dog, pheasant, and monkey:
I wanted to do something fun to end the day, and my plan was to draw Sherlock and Watson. But I just couldn't draw, so I gave up and let this stream-of-consciousness Reichenbach Fall inspired thing come out. I don't even know.

I'll actually draw Sherlock and Watson some time. I promise.

Momotaro Sketches

For my narrative illustration class we're illustrating the Japanese tale Momotaro. It's about a boy who goes off to defeat some evil ogres who have been terrorizing his village. Along the way he is joined by a spotted dog, a monkey, and a pheasant. These are some character designs that I did for Momotaro, his companions, and the ogres.

Also, here's a really quick color comp I did of an illustration I have in mind for another assignment, 'Imagined Worlds'. It's an odd size --11x28-- but it's also fun because it's pretty cinematic. When these illustrations are finished, they'll be going inside the Centro buses that drive around Syracuse.

Piccadilly- Color

Here's the finished piece. I plan on doing a whole series of this little girl and her dragon all over different locations in London. Here they are catching a ride on the Tube.

Prints available here!

And it's supposed to be a promotional card, so here's a version with stuff:

Also, two of the Tube passengers look sort of like Ten and Rose... wonder what that's about... ;)

Piccadilly Line

Line art for my next illustration. I'm a wee bit excited about this one.
