Artwork Description

Clement Fothergill, scientific investigator, and his dog Combusto. Rather un-cleverly, I did this one on normal sketchpad paper.

More ironing tips: Place a towel or cloth over the painting/paper to diffuse the heat and avoid scorching. NEVER use steam! And always iron image/ink/paint down.

If you're still checking comments. Try ironing the paper. Start with low and move up. Learned this in university when I had to iron a wrinkled paper (typed on 100% cotton bond paper so I used cotton setting on the iron) before turning it in. Great sketch too. Love the guys expression!

the colours, the composition, the characters... this whole picture is just so damn good!

I didn't. They're still there. You can sort of see them in the way the grey background fades away so unevenly Sad

Well, this was suprising... At first glance I just saw that old fella with that... pipe... thingie. anyways, I thought that this has the oldfashioned looks... Then... "What the heck? a robo dog?" Quite suprising twist Cool How did you get rid of the wrinklines of the paper?

Thanks Jordan. Well, this looks one looks ok in digital form, but in real life doing it on cheap paper adds up to a bad case of the wrinkles.

Drew, your work is amazing - I love all the small details such as the magnifying glass in his pocket and the scales on the cane. And the dog is truly incredible. Un-clever or not, doing this on normal sketch paper doesn't seem to have detracted from the finish of this image at all. Very, very nice stuff.

I love the way you draw hands, you really capture the rectangular planes of the fingers.
By the way, that robotic dog rocks.

Art at its best.
