Period Piece Pictures, Part One

So, I learned quite a bit when I did my Ryan Reynolds drawing earlier this year. I thought it was about time to put some of that into practice again, and see if I can continue to improve skills in drawing real people. It’s always a bit of an internal struggle to decide what, or in this case who, to draw at any given moment. I draw inspiration from television, the Internet, dreams, or whatever happens to pop into my head.

If you are a longtime follower of my blog, the choice to draw Riki Lindhome should come as no huge surprise to anyone. I’ve worked her name into quite a few comic strips over the past year. She’s pretty, and funny, hey that’s pretty funny right there! 🙂 She has a new show right now on Comedy Central, called Another Period. I encourage everyone to check it out. This illustration of her comes straight from a promotional photograph for the show.

I think I’ve improved quite a bit in skin tone and general shading. I could stand some improvement on clothing folds and wrinkles… and I would like to be able to do a little better with hair. Overall I am quite happy with this one, and feel like it does show definite improvement in my work. I realized after the fact that the way I drew her here, Riki Lindhome looks a bit like Snow White. I think it’s the color choices I made that unintentionally led to the resemblance.

Please let me know what you think, and remember, if you are interested in requesting my services as an Illustrator, please use the Contact page and let me know as much as you can about your request.

    1. Thank you… Riki also does comedy songs with Kate Micucci (whom I’ve also referenced in some comic strips). She’s been in a bunch of movies and had guest appearances in TV shows too.
