This is a tribute poster artwork to the TV series 'Sanctuary'. They've cancelled the show this year and I think this is really sad, cause I liked it very very much.
You can see Christopher Heyerdahl as John Druitt and Bigfoot, Amanda Tapping as Dr. Helen Magnus, Robin Dunne as Dr. Will Zimmerman, Agam Darshi as Kate Freelander, Jonathon Young as Nikola Tesla, Robert Lawrenson as Declan Macrae and Ryan Robbins as Henry Foss.
It is done in Prismacolor. The black background and the red grunge is made with acrylic.
Size: 17" x 24" Paper: Fabriano Artistico
-------------- - This is a non commercial not official work - - The TV series 'Sanctuary' and the characters belongs to Damian Kindler and Syfy - - The artwork is (c) by me -
the is my first commission finished. for the most amazing
She is a huge fan of sanctuary, and requested the killer, Vampire and detective... for those that dont watch the show that is John druitt (AKA Jack the Ripper) Nikola Tesla and James Watson (AKA Sherlock Holmes i think...)
My favourite is of course JohnDruitt, but i am bias to Chris Heyerdahl.
I went between two different screens, one square and one wide screen so Im not sure is it skewd...? anyway. hopefully you like it
Well, started this a few hours ago and couldn't stop from finishing it until it was done... My sleep schedule is going to pay dearly for this.
Anyway, wanted to get my first Sanctuary fan art done while I'm still kinda in the mind set for it after watching a bunch of episodes and special features, and now moving onto the commentary. I really do love everything about the show.
So this is a drawing of one of the main characters, Helen Magnus, played by Amanda Tapping I remember when I first saw Sanctuary, it was so jolting to see her with brown hair compared to the short blond hair she always had in Stargate, since I pretty much grew up watching that show But now I simply love her hair *-* And her accent has definitely grown on me.
All this was painted on one layer, mostly for practice, though that was not my intent when I started. Was a lot of fun to keep it up. I was especially happy with how her eyes came out xD Drew this with a screenshot open I took from the first ep to get her looking right.
Anyway, I seriously need sleep now. Hope you like this!
Helen and Sanctuary belong to their respective owners.
Ashley Magnus from Sanctuary again. This is based on two screencaps from "End of Nights" where Ashley plays an awesome villain as the brainwashed daughter of the main character. Love her character, thought she had a lot of potential both as Helen's daughter and as a kick*** villainess. For the Ashley contest at which I thought I might be late entering but ended up not working on that project for work like I was gonna not great but I don't have a whole lot of practice doing art in photoshop instead of by hand... but I thought I could find some awesome smoke brushed here on dA for a cool bamf and I did
I was rewatching some episodes from season two of Sanctuary and loved the darkness of this one (Pavor Nocturnus). I was also listening to the podcast at the same time, hearing Amanda Tapping's thoughts on the episode, which were similar to what I was feeling. The fact that even through this hard time, she was still Magnus. It just showed how many other things she had survived, and she was going to get through this one as well. So, I had to make a wallpaper for the episode.
