Beards and pockets

Linden with pockets
Fancied painting a beard and some more Asian inspired clothing, so here's a little sketch of my trainer Linden with his hands in his pockets. :-)

Pretty as a petal

Hadn’t painted my elf Freyn for a while. His face is as always based on delightful Colin Morgan, as per request by one of my very good friends who is a huge Merlin fan and suggested I use him. They thought he’d make a good elf, and they were right. :-)

Hakuna Matata

So, I'm doing the 'give me six characters to make fanart of' thing, and I've had some brilliant suggestion so far. This is the first painting of the challenge and it's actually two requests rolled into one as I was asked if i could do Scar from the Lion King and Jeremy Irons. Watch me gleefully rub my hands together. It also flagged up the fact that the last time I drew Jeremy Irons was before I even hit my teens. Shame on me. I love him and he's beautiful.

T'other way

Dorian Pavus / Ramon Tikaram
Having had much fun with portraying Ramon Tikaram as an older Dorian Pavus, I thought I'd have a go and paint him as a young Dorian. I'm thinking mid-twenties, but I'm rubbish at judging ages, so who knows. ;-)

Happy birthday, boo!

Micky Rodero
Took some time to finish this wip from January. As 2020 have moved on into March this has now become a birthday image for one of my favourite airport employees, since little Micky's birthday is the 6th of March. Many happy returns, honey, and sorry you have man the front desk on your birthday. We'll get you a real nice cake. :-)

Soy Pablo

Ryman Branson
This is an homage to 'Soy Pablo' a Bad Lip Reading of Narcos - the story about Pablo Escobar doppelganger Ryman Branson, former child actor and self described porpoise enthusiast, who is sent in by the DEA to infiltrate drug lord's compound with unexpected results.

I have yet to watch Narcos and I'm not sure that I can now, since I doubt it can live up to this heart warming spoof trailer. If you haven't seen 'Soy Pablo', then do. It's brilliant.

Dem faces

It is indeed the month of the 29 Faces challenge. So far I've managed two. Life's hectic at the mo, what can I say. :-)
