Mass Effect 3 - Commander Jessica Sheppard

BioWare recently announced Mass Effect 3. Now I am a big fan of the Mass Effect series, definitely one of my top favorite games. Even though the game doesn't come out until next holiday season, I decided to do a drawing Commander Sheppard to get in the mood. I am also a fan of Jessica Chobot, host at IGN, and she is also a big Mass Effect fan as well. So I decided to draw Commander Sheppard as Commander Jessica Sheppard. For those that don't know Mass Effect you can create your own "Commander Sheppard" you don't have to play as the one you see on commercials and other videos. I don't know if I capture her likeness as well as I wanted, but I still like the drawing.

Here is a painting of Thane and Grunt from the series I did as well, I posted them awhile ago on my blog, thought I would re-post them again in the spirit of ME3. I will probably do another painting of one of the characters sometime shortly after I get some other work out of the way. Maybe one of Legion?

Wednesday Zoo Drawings

My friends and I went zoo drawing today. I almost wasn't going to go, I over slept and forgot about it because I was up late last night painting and have tons of work to do today. But I got myself up and out the door. I haven't done much zoo drawing lately and it shows, sketches are not as strong as they used to be. I am hoping after the holiday break I will get back into it more, its always fun to go to the zoo and sketch. The takin I sketched was from last week or so when I was there and the rest are from today.

Ho Ho Ho!

In painting class on Tuesday we had a model that dressed up as Santa Clause and yes that beard is real! I haven't painted in over a month and probably several months since I have done a portrait painting, got to say that I am quite pleased with how this turned out, had some help from Meadow of course!
