He-Man = Hamlet?

I always have the desire to do non-Star Wars drawings, but for some reason I rarely do them. Something I would like to change.

On Instagram, @LifeForm.co has a weekly drawing club based on a key word. Last week that key word was: He-Man, so I thought it would be fun to participate.

The concept is obvious. He-Man holding Skeletor’s head like Hamlet holds the skull during his famous soliloquy. To solidify the idea, the text, “To be or…Whatever” is placed at the top. That phrase just popped into my head while drawing. Not sure if it ultimately belongs, but the drawing just looked empty without it. Maybe it’s Skeletor saying it, rather than He-Man?

What do you think?

Trench: Rebel Admiral

A few weeks ago I was commissioned to draw Admiral Trench (from The Clone Wars series), but with a TWIST.

As you may know, Trench gets seemingly killed off several times in the series, but always seems to turn back up. So, what if Trench ultimately survived the Clone Wars, and went on to fight with the good guys for once as an Admiral in the Rebel Alliance? Below is what that might have looked like:

I gave him a jacket similar to General Dodonna’s, his arms are made out of droid parts, and he’s a little bit more raggedy, and a lot more unhinged after being blown-up so many times. Wouldn’t you love to see him show up on Rebels? 

SKETCH WARS: Revisited

I started my SKETCH WARS project back in 2013 for many reasons. Two of which were to teach myself how to draw better, and to create my own style. I like to believe that I’ve come a long way on my journey.

Thus I had the idea to go back and redraw some of my more classic pieces from my Episode VII countdown just to see how much I really have grown as an artist.

I’m calling this series “SKETCH WARS: Revisited”, and the first in this series is of Ben Kenobi based on the brilliant Sideshow statue.

What do you think? Have I grown much?

Rogue One: A Story Wars Story

For opening weekend of Rogue One I had the pleasure of seeing the movie four times. If you couldn’t tell I was pretty excited for its release.

In my excitement I drew a collage drawing that contains most of the Rogue One cast. Though the movie fully met all of my expectations, my only disappoint with it is that my boy C2-B5 was like the Constable Zuvio of this film, but I prominently featured him here in my drawing.

The piece above was created by drawing the initial pencils on a piece of 110lb card stock, then copied onto a piece of bristol board where I colored it using an assortment of Copic and PrismaColor markers. It was inked using various Micron Pens.
