Mad Max: Furiosa poster

Mad Max: Fury Road is just fantastically amazing.
The depth and beauty it manages to express in what is essentially just a big chase-scene action blockbuster is astounding.
Charlize Theron is her usual fantastic self in it so I had to do a little tribute image.
When I had drawn it I decided to knock up a quick background and poster layout for it just to round it out a bit.
I really enjoyed painting with the big smeary brushes for her skin. Also, using these for inking was a blast. Hopefully I'll get to do more of it.

Harely Quinn: Suicide Squad

I had to do a picture of Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn from the new Suicide Squad movie: she looks awesome.

Here are a series of process shots from rough pencils to finish.

All done on my Smasung Galaxy Note phone and in Sketchbook.

Lady rogue

This is a character illustration for a female bard. It's for a personal game project I'm working on on-and-off.

I ended up changing her whole colour palette as I went on. I was originally going to have her in a full dress but I wanted to make her a little more action-ready so I changed it. I got caught up in enjoying my earthy palette.

A little hint of her bardic past is in her comedy/tragedy belt buckle.

I also changed her hair colour. She was going to have black hair, but I am making a conscious effort not to draw everyone with black hair, at least for a while. The hair ended up being the last bit which I did and it was just blank white canvas, which looked quite nice and complemented the rest of the composition nicely so I went with the very pale hair. (Also, with being dyed like this it makes her look a little theatrical and plays to her half-elven roots - yes, her ears are meant to be a little pointy like that.)
