Maid Marian Portraits : King John by Jowybean
Maid Marian Portraits : King John

Last portrait of this months Illustration project 

other pieces in the series  

Maid Marian Portraits : Nottingham by Jowybean

Maid Marian Portraits : Robin Hood by Jowybean

Maid Marian Portraits : Marian by Jowybean

Maid Marin and her Merry Men

For those of you who do not know Maid Marian was a BBC kids tv series written and staring the great Tony Robison (from Black Adder). It even got produced in to a colourful comic book with the wonderful cartoon work of Paul Cemmick (He is now an artist for our national SFX magazine). The premise was that Marian was the fearless leader rebelling against an angry King John and Sheriff of Nottingham (who Tony Robison played). While the (quote) hero Robin Hood and the other merry men were kind of useless and weak yet Marian would tolerate their incompetence. Robin was a coward and cared more about his fashion then fighting.

The aim of these illustrations was to take Cemmicks character designs from the comic and translate them in to a more semi realistic style that represented the characters personality. Due to time constraints this month (mostly to do with Poycon Uk) I was only able to get four of the main cast done but I made sure that each portrait was up to a high standard I also used different light sources to make each individual stand out and look visually more interesting.

Until next deviation LATERS :peace

This one was a lot of fun to do because of the positioning of the shadows and the muddy environment. ;P

Maid Marian Portraits : Marian

Ever since I discovered the amazing artist Todd Schorr www.toddschorr.com and his blend of cartoons and pulp art. 

I have wanted to render characters in to a semi realistic render like he does in his paintings. a lot of well known properties and characters have had this concept executed by a lot of talented artists =). But i felt that lesser known or forgotten shows do not get this treatment. I intend to change this :eager: with the new body of work I present to you for this months illustration project.

back from UK ponycon 2014

It was a very relaxing and family friendly event. It was not as Brony centered which made a nice change. 

I did a lot of coloured OC commissions and sold a bit more of my old stock from Buck con  
this year which is awesome.



  I also made some new contacts with some of the other artists there. All in all this was a better experience then Buck 2014 and I will be going next year for sure.

Over the weekend i also spoke with :iconmistydash:. I meet him perviously at my table at Buck a year ago but got to know him really well at his table this year. He even got awarded the best stall which is really cool considering this was his first time vendoring.

Personal Projects ongoing 

After Buck i have been making changes to my work pattern by creating a beirf for a fake moth long project. each month I will challenge my skills as an illustrator in new interesting ways giving me a better chance of being seen by the creative industry to do freelance work for it. while still being involved in the Brony community i want to continue to do Freelancing and conventions . 

my first big project finished last month called Middle East 2050 

The aim of this month long project was to create a series of 4 concept art illustrations that show cased a sci fi futuristic Middle East using different inside and outdoor scenarios from a positive angle rather then a political/war view. I choose this part of the world so I could challenge my limited knowledge of the culture and how effectivity I can incorporate elements of sci fi while still retaining the feeling of the regions in the Middle East like Oman Iran and Qatar.
