Shahna of Triskelion by Artman2112
Shahna of Triskelion
Ever since I was about 12 years old I have LOVED the original Star Trek series yet in all these years I have never drawn any of the awesome space hotties from the show! WELL, it was time to DO something about that and so here is my first ever Trek Chickie, the glorious, unforgettable, Angelique Pettyjohn as "Shahna" from the 2nd Season episode "Gamesters of Triskelion". All graphite on approx 16" x 24" drawing paper, HB pencil. most definitely a candidate for a full blown colored pencil piece sometime soon.

Loretta Young by Artman2112
Loretta Young
Graphite portrait of film and TV legend Loretta Young done on drawing paper. Just about life size. Intended to be a study for a colored pencil portrait but I liked how it was coming along and worked it up to a finished piece. I'll likely still do the color one though because, well, because I wannooo, lol

Portrait of Joan Blondell by Artman2112
Portrait of Joan Blondell
One of my fave of all classic actresses. I broke one of my most sacred art laws and colored right over the graphite sketch on regular drawing paper that I did of her several months ago. although I think the results arent bad I will never use colored pencils on that kind of paper ever again.

i sit in my Fortress of Solitude surrounded by pencils...pencils, pencils, pencils, everywhere.... hey man got any pencils? i need pencils!!!!!

and a maid too! or a wife! OR a wife that will dress like a maid when she's cleaning up after me....yeah that's it! nothing like a good old fashioned sexist fantasy *sigh*

I'm a 45 year old self taught artist living the quiet life in Vermont. I was weened on Frazetta, DC and EC comics, old movies and rock music and all of that gets into my art at some point. I'm also highly influenced by Art Deco, Art Nouveau, Old Hollywood Glamour, the Pre-Raphaelites and other Victorian masters, William Bouguereau, Berni Wrightson, Mike Kaluta, Alphonse Mucha, Olivia, Virgil Finlay, Enoch Bolles, Rolph Armstrong, Carmine Infantino, Al Feldstein and all the guys from EC comics, Van Gogh, Dave Stevens, Richard Corben, N.C.Wyeth, Maxfield Parrish, Robert McGinnis, Frank Lloyd Wright and many others.

the fictional character i most aspire to emulate is Howard Rourke from Ayn Rand's "The Fountainhead", a man who IS and knows it!

my fave artist: Frank Frazetta, fave band: RUSH, fave actor: James Cagney, fave actress: Clara Bow

i love DC and EC comics!

i LOOOOOOVE Harley Quinn! Squee!

my fave car is the 1968 Dodge Charger R/T Hemi, black on black on black.

I love watching silent films

John Wayne, Kirk Douglas, Burt Lancaster, Buster Keaton, Steve McQueen, John Garfield, Bruce Lee, Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Jackie Chan are totally awesome.

I LOVE the Star Wars saga and also the original Star trek series and films.

my trademark color is purple.

Cyd Charisse is my fave female dancer. Ann Miller a close second.

i love my little kitty Mathilda.

When i'm not drawing i like to play guitar, make things out of wood, watch old movies, lift weights, pet my little kitty, and eat -especially Italian food, a good steak, chocolate cake, cheesecake or ice cream.

I collect vintage movie paperware and classic movie star autographs and have them hung all over my house along with prints from my fave artists and my own work too of course. i love books. i love old cars, especially the American muscle cars of the 1960's. I stay up too late, always over sleep and i'm always hungry.

draw what you love so you can enjoy the creative process no matter how it turns out. you'll never make good art if you dont make some bad art along the way. we learn more from one bad picture then from 10 good ones. never stop learning or trying to be better. For me, making art is a bit of talent and a LOT of hard work and trial and error (ohhhhh the errors!)

"Great drawing is produced with knowledge, skill, feeling, imagination and the concepts of growth and action" - Jack Faragasso

"Can greater misery be conceived than that experienced by the artist who feels the fulfillment of his dream compromised by the impotence of his execution?" - William Bouguereau

"Taste is what seperates the men from the boys"- Frank Frazetta

"I wish you was a wishin' well....so I could tie a bucket to ya and sink ya! - James Cagney

"You Talkin' ta me?" - Robert DeNiro

"This is some fucked up repugnant shit!" - Sam Jackson

You are welcome!  If you like my look and ever need reference photos, I would be honored to give some to you.  I have thousands that are not posted on dA (that also fully show my face) - everything from classic nudes to highly erotic.  Keep up the great work!
