- Doc is now framed at last and camping out on my wall now across from Mr. Kane. Now they're both staring at me *lol*
Anyhoo, Emmett’s gonna hang out until Denver Comic Con
, which is now only 16 days away and counting. I’m very excited. Very excited to have this opportunity and I’ll be sure to blow up my DeviantART sharing it all w/ every one of you.
88 ....Some serious shit.
I really love 50 shades of gray ....Ha, you thought I meant the movie didn't ya? Just some of the tools of my trade, or in this case THEE tools of my trade. You'll find Prismacolor in damn near every piece of art I have ever done, including paintings. If you’ve seen my work, follow my work, then you can bet Prismacolor was involved in some shape or fashion.
And speaking of Emmett Brown and Prismacolor, I was contacted following my completion of the portrait work I did of Doc for the comic con and asked if I would be willing to try and take a realistic version approach to the young, 17-year old Emmett from 1931 as featured in the Back To The Future: The Game. Now granted, the character was already based on Christopher Lloyd’s likeness to start with, as was Marty McFly. But the game was also done with a cartoon-esque style to it, so to take this boy on a realistic journey by making him actually look like Christopher Lloyd transformed into a teenager?! ...How could I possibly pass that up?! Challenge on!
Needless to say, I must have spent three quarters of that afternoon watching old episodes of ‘Taxi’
just studying Christopher Lloyd’s face and angles as a younger man. I made two separate sketches (Had three originally, but unfortunately one of them had a exploding white ink accident. Heeheeha, but I am serious. Ink was everywhere!) But I showed this one to my youngest and she knew straight away that it was game Emmett. This one is my favorite of the two sketches. I just love the boyish grin. It looks like him. It looks like the game. I just love it. I’ll be posting this into my galleries shortly for a larger view. Currently I am coloring him and will hopefully have that up as well in the next couple days. ~Shinju
