Drawing John Cleese is weird. It's like... you spend ages drawing him and it looks nothing like him, and then all of a sudden, you'll put in one like and BOOM. There he is.

Eric is a little bit scratchy because my hand got so tired and he was the one I drew last.

I think I'm happiest with Graham and Jonesy.

Eric Idle, Graham Chapman, Michael Palin, John Cleese, Terry Jones, Terry Gilliam

Also, have a gif of Rufus!Terry because I am in love with him, now. I wish there was better reference material so I could do an ensemble of the Holy Flying Circus versions...

So, I bought a tablet recently and I hadn't really used it, so at about 2.30am this morning I decided what better time to do it.

What resulted is this half-finished sketch of the Pythons, in their Holy Grail costumes, but out of character during filming. Graham was a bastard to draw because in the reference photo he doesn't really look like himself to begin with. Also, drawing people with their mouths open is really hard. Managed to choose a picture in which half of the subjects have their mouths open. Well done, Rosie.

I haven't actually drawn anything properly in ages, so I'm massively out of practise, but this hasn't turned out too bad.

Ages ago, [ profile] kenix was taking commissions between professional work, and I asked him to draw my favourite band for me. I gathered a bunch of pics for reference (along with a couple of probably fairly hilarious pointers for someone not as familiar with the band as many people on this LJ are) and he created the awesome piece of art below.

This was all way, way before I got to know Andy and before Andy knew who Jamie was. It's all kind of a surreal fluke, really, because one of my first interactions with Andy was him fanboying over Jamie.

Regardless of any of that, what I've been left with is a fucking awesome pic of some awesome dudes by a genuinely great artist. Every time I look at it, I feel like I notice something else in the detail.

The guys I work with totally fangirled about it, too.

FYS cartoon, just because they asked us to. Done in about 30 minutes over all.

Apologies to Jake for the fact that he looks almost exactly nothing like himself.

My friend [ profile] kenix (better known as Jamie McKelvie) is a pretty damn fine comic book artist, and right now, between immediate projects, he's taking commissions for pieces.

Jamie will be working on one of the major superhero franchises, shortly, and has already published works such as Phonogram and Suburban Glamour.

You can see some of his art at his MySpace.

Check it out.

I just realised I can still log into my old Photobucket account.

I also forgot how much I love this pic from a few years ago. (Whoever it was I told about When the Darkness Broke In, this is the OMC)

I had to take pics of these with my phone, so it's not scan quality, but...

A little caricature of Patrick and Vicky-T )

I don't fancy Pete Wentz. Not a jot. But there are times when I just think he's so fucking beautiful I could cry.

This is one of them.

He looks so desolate. I want to draw him. I wish I had time.

Fuck it. He's a ten minute sketch, on lined paper, in biro, capture on a digital camera in poor lighting... )
