When I am supposed to be working: Aliens versus Predator


Here is a quickie sketch that I drew when at work. It is all in ballpoint pen so you can clearly see the lines and everything. It actually turned out surprisingly clear. I was afraid that the excessive crosshatching and black would confuse viewers of what is happening.

Invisible Man


I tried to make the Invisible Man have as little outlines defining his shape as possible. I made sure that it was mostly the shadowing that makes him standout, which is particularly effective for when we "see" the invisible parts of his head.

When I am supposed to be working: Phoenix


Here is a crazy one of the Phoenix on fire. I drew this on a whim if you did not notice the sketch lines. Weirdly enough, the hardest part was drawing hands. The hands were not coming together as I liked it until near the end. I do like the fiery effect that is around the Phoenix though. Oh, and her hair is super cool looking. That turned out great.

When I am supposed to be working: Rey


This is an old sketch. I was doing it without any reference so Rey is slightly off-model. In fact, her hair and face are definitely off-model, but I don't mind that the Daisy Ridley likeness is not apparent.

The Creature from the Black Lagoon


Ah. My favorite Universal movie monster! I love the Creature for the Black Lagoon because of his interesting, unique look.

When I am supposed to be working: Darth Vader


Just a quickie sketch of Darth Vader. Not much to say other than it took me like 10 minutes to do. Oh and I am still trying to figure out how to draw Vader's eyes. It still looks slightly off-model.

The Mummy


Back when I was a kid the Brendan Fraser Mummy remake was one of my favorite movies. But enough about that one, I will always appreciate Boris Karloff's version of the Mummy. 

I am trying a new technique where the shadows bleed into the actual face. It turned out quite nicely because the shadows imply deep cuts on the face. Like, the eyes look like they are sunken. Similarly, his cheeks are cut so deeply that the shadows practically engulf them. Overall, a great looking effect that gives a sense of creepiness.
