Lady Loki for

The finished design
 Some time ago I bumped into this Marvel Villains design competition for the I instantly new I had to give it a try but as I was super busy at that exact moment I had a very small window of time to do it. I would be a lot happier with it had I just had an extra hour or two to work on it but sadly I still do not have the ability to turn back time. Never the less the design did make it to the competition and is now being rated on their page. The final judges are Mr Loki himself, Tom Hiddleston and the super nerd blogger Jill Pantozzi which is admittedly very cool. And if any of you now feel the need to give me your votes here is the link where you can do so. I have been offering my eternal love and affection for the voters.

Suddle, arent I :D Honestly mine is nowhere near finished enough for me to have a snowballs chance in hell to win this but it would be awesome to be atleast in the top ten instead of bottom 100. I actually like the sketch much more then the finished coloring. I did the colors in something like 20 minutes. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. So I might just re-do this at some point, even if it is too late for the competition.

Matt Smith as Doctor Who

Matt Smith as Doctor Who

I am on a sick leave with a busted leg and have been keeping myself occupied by re-watching pretty much every season of Doctor Who. That and all the juicy Doctor news and stuff that came from the San Diego Comic-Con last weekend lead me to pain Matt Smith as the 11th Doctor. I have always liked Tennant the best as Doctors go but Smith has really grown on me lately.

And I have been teased about painting pretty boys a looot lately. Smith is mainly a very peculiar looking boy so ;)

Here's a couple of steps to the finished piece. Sadly really only a couple as I painted most of this on one layer and didn't remember to save any progress shots. 

Original sketch and the flats
The bulk of the portrait is ready
Added some extra lighting and color for depth and the jawline.
This was originally the finished piece but then decided it looked nicer without the linework.
The reason for the annoying disclaimer text is that I have lately been bumping into a lot of my work online without any reference to who has done it and in coupleof cases even someone else claming to have do it. I do sign my work but guess it's not enough so from now on I'll be adding this to all my work.
