Drawing Emilia Clarke…

So I’d just finished my two drawings yesterday and had a look on instagram and noticed this absolutely stunning photo of the beautiful Welsh actress Emilia Clarke and thought “Well, I’m gonna have to try to draw that now aren’t I?” This is a spur of the moment portrait and usually I’d spend much longer…especially on the mother of dragons herself but here you go….I’ve also added a touch of colour in the second one:

Here you go; I do like what they’ve done with her hair.

I also tried to add a bit of colour but I always end up a bit like a black and what photo that’s been coloured in:

See what I mean?

And here’s the photo it’s based on…..

She just looks fantastic.

My attempt at Big Ben

So I’ve been practising my penwork with a few natural scenes like waterfalls, bridges and trees and then after this I’ve tried to draw Big Ben…I really need to visit London again soon but here you go, here are some of my latest sketches…

I’ve tried to go a bit “Quintan Blake” on the above doodle.

Macho Man Randy Savage…

So I woke up this morning and, as I’m sometimes partial to doing, I watched a bit of WWE Wrestling; in this case, Raw. Now, I’m quite a fan of their current female roster (it’s, in my opinion, much better than their male one at the minute for wrestling skill and showmanship). I’m a fan of the Huggermaniac, Bayley, who’s just flat out lovely and she was wrestling. Now, I’ve noticed she wears garments not dissimilar to those of an 80’s and 90’s wrestling hero of mine, Macho Man Randy Savage but I assumed her finishing move was a belly-to-belly (or Bayley-to-Belly) suplex but she got up on the top rope and went full on Macho Man with the elbow which I thought was a nice homage. And it reminded me of a really old sketch I did of him….and the time I met his brother Lanny, so I’m gonna post both of those up….awesome memories.

He was the cream of the crop, ohh yeah!! Diggit!

And here’s me meeting his brother Lanny (The Genius), in the centre with Jimmy Hart, Bushwacker Luke and Tugboat.

Shading complex colours

Hey, so it’s New Year’s day and I thought I’d start as I meant to go on with a bit of a practice at shading. For this I decided to start with some basic shapes and then try some more complex body forms like an arm. So here is my notes for this morning. They might be useful for someone looking at shaded areas, mid-tones and light. I drew this in pencil simply because I couldn’t find my pen but it’s all cool.
