Korra & Asami Art Nouveau Portraits

A pair of art nouveau portrait commissions I had the pleasure of doing last month. They request Korra with water elements and Asami with mechanical elements highlighting their relationship. I’m really happy with their expressions looking at one another.

These drawings were done on separate 9 x 12″ bristol paper using Copic Multiliners.


Xena Art Nouveau Portrait

Art Nouveau portrait of Xena Warrior Princess for my lovely friend’s birthday. I never got to watch the show (didn’t get to watch much tv growing up) but I think I would have liked it. Not sure about trying to watch it now…?

“Jazzy Aric” Overwatch Portrait Commission

This was a very special commission made as a gift for a friend’s son for his 18th birthday. Part fanart, part portrait, it combines the birthday boy with his favourite Overwatch character “Jazzy”. I was told that he loves his gift and its going to have it framed and hang it in his room.

Dr. Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Tease Rex and Miss Maple Rose

From no life drawing to two sessions back to back! Sketching Tease Rex at Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne was an absolute blast! Perhaps the first ever burlesque dancer? The evening than heated up with the lovely and crimson Miss Maple Rose.


Covert Characters Life Drawing – From Dusk till Dawn Session

First life drawing session for 2018! Sketching the beautiful Ferri and Wanda the snake in From Dusk till Dawn Santanico Pandemonium tribute! Very rapid sketches because Wanda kept shifting positions. But a great challenge to shake off the rust.
