🌟New Print! Wonder Woman! 🌟
I really liked the Wonder Woman movie and I am so glad that kids growing up now have heroes like her to look up to.
Red Monkia – Pistol wielding charming outlaw from Joe Madureira’s Battle Chasers.
Joe Madureira’s art is a major reason why I started reading the X-Men comic books as a kid. His style has so much movement and when he drew characters they seemed to be more solid and more expressive. They reminded me more of animation, which I loved, then any other comic art I had seen at the time.
I’m not much for video games but I’m tempted to try Battle Chasers: Nightwar firstly because it looks amazing and secondly to final see his comic book characters move.

Another Art Nouveau style Portrait or bust ink drawing commission example. Looking for some original art for a Valentine’s gift? Details about commissions coming soon!
This original ink drawing is for sale DM me for price and shipping options. Copic pens on vellum bristol board – 22.9 x 30.5 cm (9 x12 in)
I realised I forgot to share the finished version of this commission from last month. The client asked for a Mucha inspired Death from the Endless “sketch”. She is one of my favourite comicbook characters so I was excited to get started!
This is my first ever “con sketch” commission and it was so much fun to do I think I will have to do more.
Mirco pen and ink on A4 250gm bristol board
I have had the pleasure of doing two Death of the Endless commissions recently. This piece is particularly unique because it fills the end pages of an epic collections of commissions (all of Death) from an impressive list of artist. It is a truly special book and an honour to complete the collection.
The design measures 13 x 34 cm and was drawn directly onto the back inside cover and last page using Copic fineliners and black ink. I also designed a new signature monogram especially for this piece which I think I will use from now on.
I had a great time at Oz Comic-Con this weekend! Thank you to everyone that came by my table and supported me with your kind words and purchases.
Like every event I could not make it through without my wonderful helpers and friends <3 I am especially grateful to my sister and Ben for coming to help on Sunday when I did my first ever workshop. That is a photo of me doing last minute revision and notes for my presentation looking deceptively calm.
If you are interested in seeing my workshop the video is available to watch on Twitch through the link below:
◊Introduction to Better Figure Drawing & Character Design -Lily McDonnell OZ Comic-Con Melbourne 2017◊
I will be teaching a Workshop this Sunday July 2nd at Oz Comic-Con Melbourne. I will be at the Twitch Workshop Stage at 4:00pm talking about tips and practices to help create interesting characters and draw them better. I will also be talking about basic proportion, creating unique characters and how to improve your drawing skills by setting goals.
I will take questions after the workshop or you can visit me at Table 66 near the Comic District.
Something a bit different from my usual style – this is a commission I finished recently for a Green Arrow fan combining his favourite versions of Team Arrow.
In the future he plans to get a version of this illustration as a tattoo so it was very important to get all of the details right!
It is always fun to draw superheros. It reminds me of how much I loved comics growing up and the hours I pored over them and the hours and hours I spent drawing the characters from them.

Having just heard that I have table at OZ Comic Con in July I thought I would share this photo from 2 weeks ago at Supanova Melbourne.
James and I had just arrived home after going to Spectrum Fantastic Art Live in Kansas City, MO. We were both exhausted, I was very sick from travelling.
We couldn’t have made it through the weekend without the support of our convention family
Thank you very much to our friends Nicole for Saturday and Ben for Sunday for stepping in to look after us. We greatly appreciated your help!
Thank you to everyone that stopped by and said hello and to everyone that bought something. You all made it all worth it!
