New Heroine Headshot: Yumi from “Ulysses 31”

I’ve decided to try a new type of fan art, which I’ve coined “Heroine Headshots”. I often get the urge to draw fan art of female characters I find interesting, but I don’t really have the drive these days to do full-blown illustrations, so hopefully these mini-illustrations will satisfy that urge. Anyway, first up is Yumi (AKA Thรฉmis in French) frim Ulysses 31, who I wrote a brief post on at the beginning of this year. As I said in that post, I’m not really a fan of Ulysses 31, but I’ve always had a soft spot for cute alien girls๐Ÿ˜

New Fan Art: Vignette Stonemoss

The original drawing I did of Vignette Stonemoss (played by Cara Delevingne) from Carnival Row. which I used to produce the gag I posted a few minutes ago. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š

New Fan Art: Why Does Everybody Hate Me?

This is a piece of fan art of Eveline, the chief villainess from the video game Resident Evil 7 (or Biohazard 7, in Japan). But surely I can’t be the only one who felt sorry for her at the end. She was, after all, evil because people made her evil.

Happy Birthday Natalie Portman!

I hope Natalie Portman is enjoying her 36th birthday! But to be honest, this post wasn’t going to be about her birthday at all. You see, I wasn’t actually aware that she was born on June 9 until a couple of hours ago, when I saw a congratulatory post for her on the official Star Wars account on Tumblr. But by happy coincidence, I had already started working on this illustration (which is a depiction of a young Natalie Portman as Mathilda from the 1994 film The Professional) after the girlsportraiture blog put the idea into my head for it yesterday. So I thank them for that!๐Ÿ™‚ Anyway, once I realised June 9 was Ms Portman’s birthday I made a big effort to finish this picture as quickly as I could. Therefore, it’s a bit rushed and I’m not that confident in the resemblance, but it was fun to do. And although where I am it’s already June 10, it’s still June 9 in America, where I believe Ms Portman now resides, so I’m happy!๐Ÿ˜€

Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!

New Fan Art: WW

I’m not really a big fan of the DC Comics universe, but last week I went to see the new Wonder Woman film, starring Gal Gadot and I have to say I was reasonably impressed. It had a great balance of humour, emotion and action and it was quite entertaining.ย  It’s definitely one of the better superhero films I’ve seen. Till next time, au revoir, arrivederci and may the force be with you!๐Ÿ˜Š
