Hobbit: You have nice manners for a thief and a liar (WIP)

smaug and hobbit cumberbach nice manners for a liar and thief

It is always important to mind your manners, even when your trying to steal a golden cup Arkenstone from a giant fire breathing dragon Cumberbatch . I don’t know why this image popped in my head, but it did. It probably has something to do with the stereotype of the british loving their tea . Although I spent a couple of hours on this already, it is still pretty rough. I need to get it done by tomorrow so it is adjacent with the release of Peter Jackson’s money printing machine the second Hobbit film. I did enjoy the second film so I look forward to seeing it again.

Note to self: it occurred to me that I have either made smaug too small or the dwarves and hobbitze too big. It throughs a ratchet in my comp so I will try to figure it out.

Painting of Benedict Cumberbatch

Benedict Cumberpatch

I wanted to paint a portrait of Mr Cumberbatch when I saw him play Khan in the last Star Trek.  You might know him in the BBC show “Sherlock“, the modern Sherlock Holmes adaptation. It took about 3 hours. Painting was done entirely in Photoshop with Wacom Tablet.

The  photos I used for reference I found on Wikimedia (CC), I leaned more toward his Sherlock hairstyle.

After doing a mess of speed paintings, my portfolio shouted in agony “you fool, FINISH your paintings for pete’s sake”. Always listen to your portfolio.. or it might attack you when your asleep in bed.

I pre ordered Amnesia: The Michine for Pigs. It’s out now. It’s very late. I don’t know it I should start it tonight. :O

Let me know what you think of the painting.

Pencil Sketches: Crocodile, Shawn the Sheep, and Cumberbatch’s Eye

Still trying to get back into the grove of drawing with a pencil, I’ve been spoiled by Photoshop and my Computer Tablet. Here is the best of the sketches today. A Lighting study of a crocodile, Shawn the Sheep ‘fan art’, and Cumberbatch’s Eye.

Cumberbatch himself admits his secret shape shifting powers  “I think my eye will open at the end of the first film, and then you’ll get the rest of me in the second.” .. what .. you mean it’s mocap?.. never mind. But  Weta could save a lot of money just by using Benedict Cumberbatch as is in the film, they wouldn’t need to design and render a dragon, Cumberbatch looks enough like one already :D. Sorry that was a bad joke, sometimes my jokes seem to drag-on.

Ok I will stop,  I just recently seen the new Star Trek movie (In Darkness) and  Cumberbatch did a excellent job as the villain. The movie was great and borrows quite a bit from the original Star Trek 2 movie but cleverly swapped things around.
