orange is the new black
In doing my own sketch series for “Orange is the New Black”, I thought I would do Norma in a bit of a different media – watercolour. I need to get back into the real paints!! Here is how she turned out, step-by-step:
1 – Rough sketch:
2 – Blocking in the skin colour:
3 – Adding hair and shirt colour
4 – Final details with brush pen and pigma liner
Up next in my Orange is the New Black series of sketches – Big Boo! She is tough to love but still loveable 🙂 [But don’t mess with her!]
Life and work has been busy, so I haven’t been able to do many OITNB sketches lately – but watching season 3 now has made me want to do the rest of the cast!
Up next: Poussey & Taystee with their fun antics 🙂 I did this one digitally. Stay tuned for more of the cast in sketch form!
I have managed to put a few of my character designs into t-shirt designs, yay! I am slowly converting some of them over, but lately I have managed to get up a few for “Orange is the New Black.”
Thanks for inviting me, Teepublic!

UPDATED JULY 6, 2014:
I did a quick sketch of Pennsatucky and decided to tweet it out the actress who plays her TOO well – Taryn Manning – for fun! 🙂 To my complete surprise, she tweeted me back! See below 🙂
The wifey and I have jumped on board for the new-ish Netflix series, “Orange is the New Black”…. even though a lot of the time our mouths are gaping open and asking “WHAT did they just say???!!!”
Ya can’t deny the characters are amazing, and having completed Season 2…. what a great storyline! I decided to draw all the characters, but I started with Red [see below]. And then I heard of this fanart competition, and decided to create something for that too. [see above] Why not???
I cannot stand the character of Mendez on “Orange is the New Black”….. but he has a good stache. Movember sketch Day 6 is his!
