Princess Leia: A New Hope -Painting In Progress

My tribute in progress to an amazing lady and with what it going on in the world for all the amazing women throughout history who have stood their ground. I will be donating the finished painting to the #kickbraincancer charity auction. This sketch was inspired by Alphonse Mucha’s ‘La Trappistine‘ poster.

Last Covert Characters for 2016

I finished off my life drawing classes for 2016 with a fantastic anime inspired session at Covert Charaters. Our beautiful model Silhouette d’Amour posed as Ryuko Matio from Kill La Kill with an impressive replica Scissor Blade.

Photos of me going over some figure drawing tips, answering questions and sketching the final pose of the night were taking by my BFF Nicole (BleedingHeartPrints).

 


Covert Characters Life Drawing Tribal Punk Session with Ameena

The last Covert Characters Life Drawing for Oct was high fashion meets Mad Max for a Tribal Punk Session. The slim and serene Ameena posed for us in a beautiful handmade feather mohawk crafted by our host Cindy. We supplied and combined the costume pieces to create the unique look for the session.

Fallout Jumpsuit Vault 111 Costume

A friend of mine’s daughter wrote me in her best handwriting to asking if I would make her a Fallout Jumpsuit for her to wear to PAX Aus this past weekend. I of course excitedly agreed!

Her family provided the blue coveralls and I quickly set to work to transform it into a 111 jumpsuit. After sewing down the collar, some heat transfer vinyl and a yellow karate belt it was ready set out into the wasteland.

 


Covert Characters Life Drawing – French Deco Session with Lorelle Rouge

Last month I had the privilege to teach 2 life drawing classes. Covert Characters is lucky to have access to some amazing professional models who are not only beautiful subjects but make my job as host easy.

We enjoyed a elegant French deco inspired session to end Sept with the gorgeous Lorelle Rouge. She transported us to another era wearing little but gloves and pearls.

Covert Characters Life Drawing has some amazing sessions lined up to see out the year so be sure to look out for those. More details can be found on the website here>


Return of Dr. Sketchy’s!

After over a year long break Dr. Sketchy’s Melbourne is back! Although no longer monthly and in a new venue it is just as fun and friendly as ever. “The Homage to the Hiney” had 3 bootylicious performers showing off what they got –  Frankie Valentine , Miss Jane Doe and Bella De Jac.

Unfortunately we arrived late (my fault, my friends had to pick me up from the train) so we sat on the floor and to the side. So all of my sketches are from this unusual view point. And this meant I was only able to see one of the models during the longer poses.

Our last session of life drawing at Covert Characters had the lovely Annaleigh, as Josephine Baker in her iconic banana skirt, striking some of her famous poses. Beautiful, jazzy and fun!

Looking forward to going to tonight’s session 😀

 


Jim Henson’s Labyrinth 30th Anniversary Sketch

Labyrinth_01

 

I read to today that it is the 3oth Anniversary of Jim Henson’s Labyrinth <3

It is one of a kind and is possibly the films that has influenced me the most. To celebrate, not only the film, but the amazing people that made it so magical, a did a quick sketch from the ballroom scene.

Susan Sto Helit – Discworld Sketch

Susan Sto Helit - Character Sketch Terry Pratchett's Discworld

It has been a very busy few weeks so it was nice to get to sit down and unwind with a drawing just for fun. This is a sketch of Susan Sto Helit from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld series building on the inktober sketch I did of her last year. I drew this in about 2 hours last night before bed with a CastellXF 0.7 mechanical pencil.
