Here's a little #SaturdayMorningScotty for you. I was asked the other day what my approach to shading is. I thought my brief work on #Scotty this morning was a good way to demonstrate. The short answer is "shapes". Especially on men, I try to view faces as a series of planes and to find interesting shapes to highlight. Notice the eyes and eyebrows. I try to make the shape of the lashes and brows dynamic and interesting even though there's not much shading going on. You can also see where I've started to construct his ear. It's going to start with that shadow shape, then I'll find some darker areas inside. The real fire comes when I do highlights and start building shapes with light as well. Hope that's helpful. You may return to your coffee now. #DrawingTechnique #PencilDrawing #Portrait #PortraitDrawing #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #MrScott #MontgomeryScott #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Starfleet #FanArtist #ConArtist #FinalFrontierSeries
You know how sometimes you wake up on Thursday morning, and the voices are like, "That design work you need to have done by noon will be no problem... Start those cool #drawing projects you prepped last night..." I usually listen to the voices. I'm really excited about all of these. #Scotty #MontgomeryScott #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #JamesDoohan #FinalFrontierSeries #WonderWoman #DianaOfThemyscira #PrincessDiana #GalGadot #ThemysciraCollection @gal_gadot #StarWars #AttackOfTheClones #PadmeAmidala #Padme #NataliePortman #Cosplay #DS9 #StarTrekDS9 #FanArt #Portrait #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #DrawingTechnique

After getting my commissions started, I downed a little coffee and got new pieces started for the #FinalFrontierSeries and the #ThemysciraCollection . I've never drawn #Scotty before and he's got some really interesting things going on. The new #portrait of #Diana is quite close on her features so I'm looking forward to really concentrating on her face with this one. @gal_gadot 's eyes are going to be a lot of fun! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #ChiefEngineer #MontgomeryScott #JamesDoohan #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #WonderWoman #DianaOfThemyscira #Themyscira #WonderWoman1984 #Drawing #PencilDrawing #PortraitDrawing #FanArt #DrawingTechnique
Ladies and gentlemen... #LtUhura is finished! The lovely third installment of the #FinalFrontierSeries is in the box and ready to be scanned. I love #NichelleNichols ' eyes and I think they came out all beautiful and sparkly. So I'm calling this one a win! Next up: #Chekov ! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #Uhura #NyotaUhura #HailingFrequenciesOpen #Swahili #Kirk #Spock #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #PencilDrawing #PortraitDrawing #PortraitArt #SciFiArt #Drawing #FanArtist #ConArtist #PortraitArtist
I was hoping to finish #Uhura this morning before breaking off to tackle some design work, but alas... her righteous do remains unfinished. So I thought I'd share at least finished skin tones and uniform. The painted highlights at the end will push the contrast a little further and turn the form a bit. I'll admit that I'm not as comfortable with darker skin tones for the simple fact that I haven't done as many. But I gotta say, I think hers came out pretty good. I started with a base of Sand, over which went Orange and Crimson Red. I then worked in a lot of white for highlights and pushed it back with Orange and Yellow Ochre to give her that lovely bronzed glow. I think it worked. Almost there! #LtUhura #NyotaUhura #NichelleNichols #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #FinalFrontier #FinalFrontierSeries #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #Drawing #PencilDrawing #Portrait #PortraitDrawing #PortraitArt #DrawingTechnique #FanArtist #PortraitArtist #ConArtist
I wanted to make some progress on the #FinalFrontierSeries this morning before switching to design work, so I knocked out the background on #Uhura . It really helped push the contrast. I'm curious to see how her darker skin tone is going to work on the purple paper. But I'm so happy with how this series is coming together so far. Six more to go after #LtUhura ! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #NyotaUhura #NichelleNichols #StarTrekFanArt #BoxSet #FanArt #Stsrfleet #Portrait #Drawing #DrawingTechnique #WIP #PencilDrawing #StarTrekArt
Quick update from this morning's work on #LtUhura from the #FinalFrontierSeries . The underdrawing is done and she's ready for some color. I'll probably start with the background, but I need to switch over to commissions for the rest of the day. #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Uhura #NyotaUhura #NichelleNichols #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #FanArt #Drawing #PencilDrawing #DrawingTechnique #StarTrekFanArt #FanArtist #ConArtist #PortraitArtist
I got some momentum going on my next pieces for the #ThemysciraCollection and the #FinalFrontierSeries . The underdrawing is done on #Diana and I'm closing in on it on #Uhura . The humidity has turned my #BlackGrape pencils into snarky, petulant little frustration sticks... But I'm toughing it out. I'm still trying to decide which of these sets to focus on for release at my August convention table. I'm not sure I can get either done... but what do you think? #WonderWoman #DianaOfThemyscira #PrincessDiana #Armor #Amazon #JusticeLeague #GalGadot #LtUhura #NyotaUhura #NichelleNichols #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #FanArt #Portrait #Drawing #PencilDrawing #DrawingTechnique #PortraitDrawing #ConArtist #FanArtist @gal_gadot
Iā€™m SO excited to finally see these. I got the labels printed for my #FinalFrontierSeries Box Set today and applied them all this evening. All 30 boxes are ready to go and waiting for some prints to fill them. Extra motivation for me to keep pushing! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #Kirk #Spock #McCoy #Uhura #Sulu #Chekov #JaniceRand #ChristineChapel #Packaging #PackagingDesign #FanArtist
#MrSulu ... you, sir, are done! That's two down on the #FinalFrontierSeries . #LtUhura won the vote on my story yesterday, so she'll be next up. In the meantime, I'll be getting the labels for the boxes printed tomorrow so I can get started on the packaging. Two down... seven to boldly go! #HikaruSulu #Sulu #GeorgeTakei #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #FinalFrontier #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #Drawing #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #Portrait #FanArtist #PortraitArtist #ConArtist @georgehtakei
As I feel the cold virus taking hold on my body, I've finished the #pencil work on #MrSulu . I need a little paint to give him some added punch, but he's pretty much there. Swipe left to see the skin tone build-up before the highlights were added. I started with light peach to knock the lights in, toned everything with orange and yellow ochre, hit the shadows with crimson red then added highlights in white and a little eye shading with a reddish purple. I'll finish him up later today! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Sulu #HikaruSulu #CaptainKirk #MrSpock #GeorgeTakei #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #FinalFrontierSeries #FinalFrontier #Portrait #Drawing #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #WIP #DrawingTechnique @georgehtakei
I'll close out the night with a little progress pic of my #Sulu #portrait for the #FinalFrontierSeries . He's almost there! I just need to finish the skin tones and his hair and then he's ready for final paints. It's so great to see this series coming to life. I'm going female for piece number 3. Check out my story to vote for which member of the crew I start next. #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #MrSulu #GeorgeTakei #Kirk #Spock #Drawing #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #FanArt #PortraitArt #StarTrekFanArt #FanArtist #PortraitArtist #ConArtist @georgehtakei
Starting my day off with some relaxing skin-tone work on pieces for my upcoming box-sets. This is about half-way through and everyone looks like they have a fake tan. Next comes highlights which will knock back the saturation quite a bit. So excited about these projects! #DoctorWho #DrWho #TheDoctor #FirstDoctor #NinthDoctor #WilliamHartnell #ChristopherEccleston #TheRegenerationSeries #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #DrMcCoy #LeonardMcCoy #DeforestKelley #FinalFrontierSeries #Drawing #DrawingTechnique #FanArt #DoctorWhoFanArt #StarTrekFanArt #Portrait #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing

Sigh... Web design beckons me today, but I got an early start so I could exorcise my #portrait yearnings. Nothing spectacular, but I managed to get skin tones on #DoctorMcCoy started. I love all the lines and wrinkles in his face. Makes it so interesting. And those brows... Can't wait to see how this one comes out. #FinalFrontierSeries #LeonardMcCoy #Bones #StarTrek #TOS #DeforrestKelley #StarTrekTOS #Starfleet #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #Portrait #Drawing #PencilDrawing #DrawingTechnique #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #McCoy
Thank... goodness. She's finally done. Don't get me wrong... I love classic cars and I love metal and cool reflections... but it's a killer on the #CarpalTunnel . Time to get her packaged up and in the post. Shout out if you'd like a print! Tomorrow, back to work on the #RegenerationSeries and the #FinalFrontierSeries ! #Corvette #Vette #ClassicCorvette #62Corvette #1962Corvette #62Vette #1962Vette #HotRod #SportsCar #CarDrawing #CarArt #ClassicCarArt #PencilDrawing
The voices tend to want to plan projects out three or four in advance, so I've been thinking about a box set to do after the #RegenerationSeries and the #FinalFrontierSeries (pending their inevitable success of course šŸ˜œ). What do you think of a #Droids box set? Here are a few #Droid pieces I've done in the past. If anyone would like to commission a droid #portrait and you're open on format and size, I'll give you a break on price since I'll end up using it for the set. #BB8 , #R2D2 , #C3PO , #BB9E , #Chopper , #K2SO , #R2KT , #R4P17 ... I've got lots I'd like to do. #StarWars #ANewHope #EmpireStrikesBack #ReturnOfTheJedi #TheForceAwakens #TheLastJedi #PortraitDrawing #Drawing #FanArt #StarWarsFanArt #PencilDrawing #ConArtist
The darks on #Bones got finished this afternoon. His hair was really fun. Swipe left to see a close-up and how it looked before I laid in the subtle details. Can't wait to get some color on this! #LeonardMcCoy #DrMcCoy #DoctorMcCoy #DrLeonardMcCoy #DeforestKelley #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #FanArt #StarTrekFanArt #FinalFrontierSeries #Portrait #Drawing #PortraitDrawing #Drawing #PencilDrawing #DrawingTechnique #WIP #FanArtist
Sorry for the horrendous lighting, but here's today's vacation progress on #DoctorMcCoy , the first piece in my #FinalFrontierSeries . Just need to get his hair in to finish the darks up... But that's gonna be a whole other beast. #LeonardMcCoy #McCoyLeonardSonOfDavid #DeforrestKelley #Bones #DoctorLeonardMcCoy #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #Portrait #Drawing #DrawingTechnique #PencilDrawing #FanArt #PortraitArt #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #StarTrekFanArt #Trekkie
Starting my day with some promised fun #drawing time working on my love projects, the #RegenerationSeries and the #FinalFrontierSeries . My promise to myself was to get the darks on the two doctors' clothes done. And wow... I'm so happy with how it's all coming out. The idea of seeing these #boxsets produced grows cooler and cooler to me every day... #DoctorWho #DrWho #NinthDoctor #9thDoctor #ChristopherEccleston #TARDIS #DoctorMcCoy #DrMcCoy #LeonardMcCoy #USSEnterprise #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #NCC1701 #Portrait #PortraitArt #DrawingTechnique #PencilDrawing #FanArt #FanArtist
Sorry for the crumby kitchenette lighting and the background pastry, but here's me started properly on #DoctorMcCoy and the #NinthDoctor . Both are installments in my two upcoming box sets, the #FinalFrontierSeries and the #RegenerationSeries , respectively. Still a ways to go on them both, but I'm super excited! #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #USSEnterprise #NCC1701 #DoctorWho #TheDoctor #9thDoctor #ChristopherEccleston #DeForestKelley #Portrait #PortraitSeries #PortraitDrawing #Drawing #DrawingTechnique #StarTrekFanArt #DoctorWhoFanArt #Whovian #Trekkie #FanArt
Three pieces prepped and ready to go after a day of graphically designing things. I always like to take plenty to do on vacation in the event of rainy days. #DoctorMcCoy is the first piece I'll be doing in the #FinalFrontierSeries box set, the #NinthDoctor is the second piece in the #RegenerationSeries and the #Vette is a commission I need to have done this month. Get busy Alan! #Corvette #Chevy #62Corvette #LeonardMcCoy #DeForestKelley #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Enterprise #ChristopherEccleston #DoctorWho #TheDoctor #TARDIS #Portrait #FanArt #BoxSet #Drawing #PortraitDrawing #PencilDrawing #FanArtist
Oh my goodness... The boxes are here!!! The blue ones for the #RegenerationSeries are on the left and the grey ones for the #FinalFrontierSeries are on the right. I am so, so excited to get finished files ready and to start labeling these! #ItsRealNow #DoctorWho #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Enterprise #USSEnterprise #TheseAreTheVoyages #AllThingsChangeAndWeChangeWithThem #Portrait #Drawing #BoxSet #FanArt
I was getting some paper cut for the #RegenerationSeries and the #FinalFrontierSeries and I caught sight of a corner of my studio I'm mildly embarrassed about: half-finished and just-started pieces... There's #BlackWidow , #DemelzaPoldark , #NegasonicTeenageWarhead , the #FirstDoctor , the #NinthDoctor , #DoctorMcCoy , two #StarWars posters, a golf #portrait , a #Corvette commission and a bunch of references. My real problem is that I want to work on all of them... #FanArtStruggles #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #Avengers #Poldark #DoctorWho #WilliamHartnell #ChristopherEccleston #EleanorTomlinson @charmingtea13 #FanArt #ConArtist #FanArtist #PortraitArtist
I've had such a great year so far as an artist. I feel like my technique and skills have grown in so many ways. But so much more importantly, I've had so many opportunities to see my work make people smile. And that is a gift! @lilylee_marie and I were talking about how I could up my game again in the coming year and do something even more special for people. So I've decided to add another box set to my schedule for the year. In addition to my #DoctorWho #RegenerationSeries , I'm going to start development on the #FinalFrontierSeries focusing on the crew of the original #Enterprise . I hope this project will bring smiles to lots of faces! More details soon. #StarTrek #TOS #StarTrekTOS #CaptainKirk #MrSpock #DrMcCoy #Scotty #Chekov #Uhura #Sulu #JaniceRand #ChristineChapel #BoxSet #Portrait #FanArt #ConArtist #ArtistAlley #Trekkie
