AlphaBeasts - Q is for Queen Alien

Decided to go the quick & easy route for this magnificent beast! One of the greatest movie villains of all time...ol' Queenie herself. Did the sketch over lunch and then photoshopped the bejeebus out of it to make these playing cards. Hope you dig 'em!

The original art is on the left, then photoshopped variants follow...

AlphaBeasts - Lord of the Rings edition

N is for Nazg├╗l - #AlphaBeasts
I did this last night thinking I still had "N" to do...I completely forgot about Nian...d'oh! Ah well, I like this one better (even though I don't like it very much either).

This is from the Lord of the Rings...another name for the Ringwraiths that chase lil' Frodo all over Middle Earth.

O is for Orc - #AlphaBeasts

Another Lord of the Rings creature...this one of the Moria variety. Photo referenced from a Maquette by Jamie Beswarick in the Art of the LOTR book.

Wonder Woman

I did this drawing of Wonder Woman in my spare time, just so I could work on that costume. I don’t hate it as much now, but I still feel like it’s more complicated than it needs to be.

The trickiest part of this for me was retaining her femininity, but weird things happen to your drawing style when you watch a two day marathon of RuPaul’s Drag Race. The shape of the face was reworked, but thankfully, she has black hair, making it an easy fix.

The hands were the trickier part. Knowing that the face still retained some masculine properties, I didn't want to give her man hands. I referenced the hands, and in the process, moved her left hand (her left, not yours)three times to get the placement where I wanted it and where it worked anatomically.
