Arya, because my wife demanded it.
I also still like this sketch of her from last year.

Sam Tarly from A Game of Thrones. I doodled some characters from the books recently, for you know, obvious reasons.I also baked some delicious lemon cakes yesterday.
They’re based on a medieval recipe, let me know if any of you want the recipe.

I’ve been drawing Arnold Lobel’s Frog and Toad illustrations as warm up doodles lately.

Willow is a movie that I saw it when I was 12. It traumatised me in such a way I didn’t even remember it existed 6 years later. Since then I’ve come to rather like it despite its many, many flaws (terrible dialogue, plotholes and rather hit and miss special effects).It has a lot of good things though: Warwick Davis, Val Kilmer’s hair, the pig that pulls a plow, some great landscapes and overall some very nice design and a great score. (Even if just about every theme in it was taken from other peoples’ music) 
The Brownies (the tiny chaps with the inexplicable Francophone accents) are like Ewoks in that they’re hilarious when you’re very young but more than a little grating for anyone who would consider himself a sensible adult.
Still seeing how I effed up my first attempt at a drawing, I resorted to doing a (somewhat) quick doodle of them. And I have to say I always did like that mouse hat.

What is the biggest shame though is that the film could have been so much more awesome. George Lucas had hired Moebius (!) to do the concept design for it and if they had actually made what he drew it would have looked like nothing else ever.You can see some of those designs here: http://tellforward.blogspot.com/2010/05/willow-that-wasnt.html

Young Sherlock Holmes is one of those eighties films that isn’t exactly good, but is still highly enjoyable and memorable.I certainly remember it, even though before last year I hadn’t seen it since I was twelve.  
I decided to do a little series of these to encourage myself to draw more with pen and ink.Expect a Willow drawing next.
