Herman Van Rompuy

A quick caricature sketch of Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council, Done for a Wittygraphy challenge. I thought he looked like The Grinch, so there's an influence of Chuck Jones's classic animation of the Dr Seuss story in there.

Gladiator Wolverine

I never liked the official Wolverine "Origin" story - for me it was far too limited in scope and timescale. I always thought that the character deserved something more epic, spanning various continents and hundreds - if not thousands - of years.
The December monthly challenge on the ImagineFX forum - to overhaul an existing character's look, while still retaining enough to make them recognisable - gave me a perfect opportunity to illustrate something that's been lurking in my head for a while: Wolverine as a gladiator in ancient Rome.

Emily Browning

A caricature sketch of Emily as Baby Doll in the movie Sucker Punch. If I was doing Emily Browning as herself (which I may at some point) it would be quite different.
