The 11th Doctor

This week's sketch card for my son's lunch.  The 11th Doctor Who and his sonic screwdriver.

2.5" x 3.5" illustration board sketch card, sepia pitt pens, Copic markers, oil pastels, and just a little sharpie.  

The size of the cards are a challenge to convey an image that is recognizable on such a small layout.  Then having enough room to blend the marker color.  The lines are also kind of a pain, the Pitt pens take time to dry enough to go back over with the markers.  I have recently experimented with starting with color and treating it more like a painting, but my skill level has not reached that yet!  I was pleased with the tones of the skin and the fact that ever 3/4's of his face is basically recognizable as the character.
