Maleficent 

In the same series as my Ursula picture I’ve drawn Maleficent! I’ve decided to do a Disney villain series in the same style as  they’re fun to do and a nice break between comic pages 🙂 


Here’s Maleficent, the villain from Sleeping Beauty! Drawn digitally in Photoshop 🙂

New items in my Etsy store!

Hi guys! I have some pretty new items in my Etsy store

I’ve added some new Jewellery

No-Face drop earrings


Made from shrink plastic, measuring 2 1/2 inches so they’re quite long but STUNNING. No-face is my favourite Ghibli character by far so I couldn’t resist making them.
Iridescent red button earrings.


Made with recycled buttons, the buttons are so shiny and pearly. They look quite alternative while at the same time staying classic looking.

Vintage 60s/70s style button earrings


These vintage buttons look absolutely lovely as little stud earrings. They have a 60s / early 70s feel to me and would definitely look great with a summer wardrobe!

Handmade shrink plastic Sushi earrings.


I originally made these because I think sushi looks beautiful and I wanted a set for myself. It turned out that these were my most popular sellers at the comic con I attended this weekend so I made them available to buy online! 

Newly added prints

Thomas Sharpe- Crimson Peak

Originally drawn with my dip pen and ink, then scanned in and digitally coloured. This print is on a4 300gsm hammered card to a very high standard. Any excuse to draw Tom Hiddleston of course! 

David Bowie as Jared the goblin king. 


Digital painting of David Bowie as the goblin king, printed on A4 hammered 300gsm card. This print was my best seller at comic con so it’s by popular demand that I add it to my Etsy store. Labyrinth was one of my favourite childhood films so a lot of love went into this painting. 

Crimson Peak

Thought I’d take a break from working on my comic tonight and trying to get some work together for Manchester Film and Comic con. I decided to draw some Crimson Peak Illustrations as it is one of my favourite horror films and the visuals are vivid and really cool to look at. 

   
 
I drew Enola the Italian ghost, sadly I smudged the line work a little but I’m happy overall with how she turned out, I used a white pen to finish with which I never usually do but I’m glad I did this time as it gives the colour some depth. I may scan this image in and clean it to sell as a print at a later date if there is interest.

  
I also decided to draw Tom Hiddleston. I found him quite hard to draw at this angle actually and I’m not sure why, the picture isn’t 100% acurrate but I think it adds to the stylisation if the peice. I’m especially fond of how his hands turned out actually. 

Star Wars VII

Like many other people, I adored the new Star Wars film which I was lucky enough to see at midnight on the opening night (before people could spoil it for me) and again a second time a couple of weeks ago.  There may be some minor spoilers below. 

 
I thought the film was spectacular in many aspects, I loved the return in traditional effects (myself and my friends who I saw the film with gasped simultaneously when we saw Admiral Akbar in 80s style costume), and I loved the character progression not only throughout the movie, but implied progression between movies. Most of all I loved the portrayal of women in this film,  previously Star Wars films seem to have tried but simply failed to have strong women in the forefront (Leia is a badass granted, but the stupid gold bikini definitely makes me cringe every time). This new film seems to have corrected these slights quite a lot, Leia is now no longer a princess, but a general who is not only in charge with saving the galaxy but also staying strong in the face of losing her son, we have Rey, a capable intelligent woman who for once in a sci-fi, isn’t sexualised at all but is both funny and courageous, and we also have side characters like Fasma and Maz who are both leaders (OK Fazma was a tad disdain ting with her lack of screen time). I totally recommend this film, it’s fun, witty, exciting and importantly, ground breaking. Here is the illustration I was inspired to make after my second watch 🙂 I’m so excited now for episode 8!  

 

Quick and dirty drawing 

  
Drew a picture of my favourite Disney villain, Ursula the sea witch. I was originally going to draw her more detailed but I liked the more simple shapes and colours that I ended up with. I’m particularly pleased with her tentacles actually, I also added a texture brush to give a screen print effect. Drawn in Photoshop.

Firefly inktober

I’m pretty behind on inktober but I’m going to try and post for the next few days anyway. I decided to draw Zoe from firefly played by the gorgeous Gina Torres. I used Letraset markers for the colour and fineliners for the line work. The patterns were an afterthought because the price seemed pretty plain otherwise, overall I’m fairly happy with the result on this and enjoyed the practice (her hair is so fun to draw!)
