Heavy Is The Head That Wears The Crown
My first “traditional” piece in quite a while. It felt good to get back to my roots! A bit of an Anglophile, I LOVED the Netflix series The Crown. Claire Foy was spectacular in the role of the queen.

This is a 9x12 on Strathmore drawing paper. Charcoal, carbon, and white gel pen. I was initially pretty intimidated by the crown and jewelry but it turned out to be a really fun experience in the end!
Welcome, Foolish Mortals...
My take on a maid from the Haunted Mansion had Disney created an animated feature about the ride... which they totally should!

First attempt at an original character. For my first try I don’t hate it!
No Capes! - Edna Mode
Started this as a quick doodle to pass the time but it continued to grow after my son suggested it looked like a newspaper ad. Reference used for Edna, all capes and trash can done without reference.

For a bit of added geekiness one might note the dynaguy, stratogale, and thunderhead symbols on the capes 😂

Such a fun piece to make- hope you enjoy!
It Calls Me
Moana has been on my iPad for over a year. It started as a little side work to practice digital techniques. I would pick it up and work on it for a few minutes between doing other things. After a year of working on this practice piece I think I’m ready to move on and call it finished. Definitely not perfect but I enjoyed this learning process and picked up a lot of useful techniques.

This piece was hand drawn on my iPad Pro using an Apple Pencil and the procreate app. Being a pencil and paper artist this definitely was a change of pace but I found the app really lends itself to my style of drawing and made the transition easier. About 70 hours of work.
