This is a water colour and ink sketch I did based on a photo from a Save Darfur brochure. The image was just a child against a white background. I thought is was simple and powerful. I tried to capture the child expression as best I could. In the end my image looks angrier than the photo which has the child looking more confused and hurt. I'm not quite sure which is more appropriate.

I sketched this at work the other day and took about another three days on my off time to colour him. Not keen on the gradient background but I thought I'd show you anyway a few more changes to make but I'm happy with his posture and expression. A little back story so you'll understand why a Zombie would be so excited and shouting Oh...My...Gawd!!! is that his BFF (best friend forever) (I find that funny because both characters can't die so they literally might be best friends forever) SexBot Dot 3545 tells him that she and the professor are an item and he just can't believe it. So he shout out to the world "What Happened"... I mean Oh...My...Gawd!!!
These are a couple of conceptual sketches for two more characters from space quest you won't see them on stage one is the talented musician Tim Cranwill and the Other you have already seen. This is the first sketch of Randy apostles space quest avatar 'The Brain' you can actually see him holding a pen with his tail in this one.
I have had a lot of fun doing these. So much fun you may see a Space Quest animation in the future. Maybe...

A.K.A. Wellington J. Farnsworth Spookingdorf III
Spook is a deathly mess of teeth, sinew and bones who cannot be killed. he is a Zombie of intellect, trying to sate his never ending hunger for flesh, marrow and braaaaaaiiins... Used as the team shield while on assignment, Spook dutifully soldiers for right, justice, humanity (Unless he is really really hungry). The only weakness this devouring monster has is the heart he wears on his sleeve. No, not the one he keeps there as a snack, but the metaphorical one that gets stomped so easily. You can tear of his limbs, stomp on his face, and zap him with a thousand ray guns, but the only tear you will see come from his eye will be one caused by his poor, breaking heart.
