Do you like my artwork? I'm taking commissions starting at $3 - all details are right here! Alternatively, you can get commissions for cheaper if you join my Patreon!
Near the start of the year, I opened up a Patreon as a means to create cool content for people that pledge for it. I still have a small number of patrons at the moment, but the contributions meant a lot and I made sure to get them involved in every reward in their respective tier. One that I had out for those that pledge $1 (the Wumpa Fruit tier) would be to get together and pick which of my daily sketches I should turn into a fully-colored image. This is the result of those Patron responses!
Original sketch: Click!Day 270 - GexSketched on September 27th 2018
This year's celebrity line-up for the BBC show Strictly Come Dancing
- in which those in America know it better as the format they took and re-named Dancing with the Stars
- had Danny John-Jules among 14 others taking to the dancefloor with a professional partner, aiming to impress in ballroom and Latin dance disciplines. Most people know him as the Cat from Red Dwarf
, but for me, he portrayed Gex in the UK dub for Deep Cover Gecko
- and that was a huge deal for me to sketch the character out 2 days before the show's first elimination! Obviously this outfit is loosely based on the disco outfit he wore in the Rezopolis level in Enter the Gecko
, which is already a homage to John Travolta's flashy white outfit in Saturday Night Fever
- but I wanted to make it feel more like a suit rather than relying on 90s polygons...!
As for Danny's progress in the competition - as of posting the image, he's among the 10 remaining celebrities, and even got the series' first 10 from one of the judges after doing a fun aviator themed jive in week 5! I'm wishing him all the best!
The current patrons will also decide on the October 2018... Inktober-piece-turned-colored-image, apparently... and you could also decide on November 2018 and future months if you join the Patreon page! Check it out, see what I have to offer and go nuts x)Gex
is a platforming franchise created by Crystal Dynamics, with the IP now belonging to Square Enix for some reason. I drew this!
