Stop the Villains Cold, Make the Axis Fold

I haven't seen much of the '70s Wonder Woman TV series. I've got the full series on DVD, so it's only a matter of time. From what I've seen of the show, though, I love Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, both physically and personality-wise.


The Matt Smith drawing took several days, but this one I did in an afternoon. I'm still working from photo reference, but I think that's good practice, and I feel like I'm learning as I go. Let me know what you think.

I am definitely a madman with a box.

So I'm sort of obsessed with Doctor Who right now. Probably because it's completely awesome. David Tennant is my favorite, but when I'm drawing I keep coming back to Matt Smith. His face is an interesting shape, and his hair is crazy, which I like because I'm crap at drawing hair.

I drew this over the course of the last couple of weeks.


Things I like: the hair, the eyes, the lines on his forehead. And the bowtie. Bowties are cool.

Things I dislike: his chin is huge, and his lips look weird. He kind of looks like a Frank Quitely character, which isn't awful, but not really what I was going for. Also not really sure what's going on with the shadows. I've never really crosshatched before, so I gave that a try, and then it got a little too thick on his cheek so I took an eraser to it. I'm experimenting, though, which is what this whole thing is all about.

It only vaguely looks like Matt Smith, but oh well. Maybe some day I'll be done drawing faces over and over. Until then. Onward and upward.
