For his birthday, Javier, wished upon a star. Ever happy to play the part of Blue Fairy I worked up a new Roger Rodgers drawing. It's actually a redrawing of an old drawing based on a Planet Stories cover from long, long ago (1942, to be precise). The original image is by Alexander Leydenfrost .
Hope you have a very Happy Birthday day, Javier!
Cleaning my apartment the other day I found a stack of old life drawings. I snapped photos of the sketches before getting rid of them and decided I'd use them as the basis for warm-up drawings. Digital warm-up drawings! I've been messing around in Photoshop with my Wacom, mostly producing sketchy stuff not worth sharing. But I liked how this one turned out, just playing with lit sides and very little detail.
Kinda reminds me of black velvet artwork :)
