Random Favourites

I pick my favourites, not neccessarily based off talent or content but by impact, style, beauty, because it made me laugh or numerous other random reasons. Regardless of whether or not a peice reflects something I'm into or not, if it makes me doubletake, and want to see it again, then it deserves it.

MY BLOG: lostinfernal.wordpress.com/

Every year I have a table at the Calgary and Edmonton Expos where I do sell select portraits. This is the only place I sell. Nor do I take commissions, though I might break that rule if the request came from the celebrity portrayed or the company in ownership of the copyright.

I try to maintain a balance between wanting to share my love of these characters and respecting the original owner of the image, whether it is a company or the person who the likeness belongs to. Because of this, I keep my prices low, in exception of the original, and my print runs low.

Here's the thing, I love these characters. I love drawing them and challenging myself. I love the reactions to my art, because you guys get soooo excited. That being said, I want to be respectful. So as much as other artists tell me to raise my prices, I won't. Regardless of demand, the print runs do end relatively quickly. I'll also constantly post updates to the company/person on Twitter and Facebook. From saying I'm going to do it, straight through production, I want them to be able to say "hell no!" if they actually see the post and would rather I didn't.

I will NEVER make a killing off selling art based off someone else's concept. I earn enough to pay for product, and tables, and signage, and all that stuff and sometimes (if I'm lucky) a little bit more to justify the days of work I take off to be there.

If you are wondering, the thing I want to make a living off of is actually my writing. And, hopefully, I'll realize that dream soon enough. In the meantime, and probably beyond, I loves me some half-naked men.

All this being said, Matt Smith has told me I can keep abusing his image. ;) Other awesome celebrities who have been totally cool with it, and even encouraging include Dean Cain and J August Richards, two of the finest gentlemen I've had the privilege of meeting.

Jeremy Renner - Hawkeye

Follow me on:

Twitter: twitter.com/ShonnaTheWhite 

Character: Jeremy Renner - Hawkeye - Marvel's Avengers 

Tools Used: Mechanical Pencil, 4B, 6B, and 8B Pencils. Paintbrushes for blending.


This is, perhaps, my favourite one to date! 

A couple of considerations had to be made when drawing Jeremy Renner. 1. He has done no recent shirtless works/photoshoots that I could find, so I wanted to make sure that I picked a pose respectful of that. 2.I like to put the actor's tattoos into the pictures I do, regardless of if they're in character. They mean something to the person, afterall. However, with Mr. Renner, I couldn't find a picture of his tattoo that was clear enough for me to feel like I could do it justice, especially considering the pronounced location it would be in the picture!

This one didn't take me as long as I thought it might, however, it was still a challenge. I guess I'm getting better!

Jared Padalecki - Sam Winchester

Character: Dean Winchester / Jensen Ackles - Supernatural  

Tools Used: Mechanical Pencil, 4B, 6B, and 8B Pencils. Paintbrushes for blending.


By *WAAAAAY* popular demand, my most requested piece to date ... you guys made me so nervous to do this one. With so many people requesting, I really wanted to make sure I did it real justice. I sincerely hope, if Jared Padalecki, ever sees it, he likes it.

I would totally offer the original of this (and the Jensen Ackles one) up to 'Always Keep Fighting' if auctioning it off would help raise funds towards mental health causes. Being someone who has been through a lot, developed PTSD, and has been through therapy to deal with that and the host of other issues it builds itself on, mental health awareness is important to me. I, personally, would never be able to use it to raise any significant amount of money, however.

Now, with my hand seriously cramped from drawing this, I'm off!

Cullen Rutherford - Dragon Age Inquisition

Character: Cullen Rutherford - Dragon Age Inquisition

Tools Used: Mechanical Pencil, 4B, 6B, and 8B Pencils. Paintbrushes for blending.

I've agonized over this an UNREAL amount. 4 tries to get his face right, and still a TONNE of tweaking right into the last stages of the drawing. It doesn't help I like the character. 


Actually, I had been DETERMINED to not go all doe-eyed over the character - considering he's totally the stereotype of the character all girls should fall for. I played through romancing Iron Bull. It was hilarious! That said, I found myself arguing to stop with the slow leaning over to developing yet another digital crush. Well, you can probably guess where this is going ...

I do have to say, to whomever redesigned Cullen - I both hate and love you. To the writer(s) who developed the character - DAMN YOU! To the voice actor - I applaud you and when I'm rich and famous, I will hire you to read me bedtime stories and doing random Cullen impersonations. It won't be weird at all. I promise!
