Recently, while working on a Thomas Edison Ask (one which will, funnily enough, go public after this pic), it occurred to me that I had time to do an America: The Motion Picture pic for Independence Day. The movie debuted on Netflix for last year’s 4th of July, so I figured I could do this pic for the one-year anniversary. I don’t usually think to do holiday pics outside of Christmas and Halloween, but the timing worked out this time. In this pic we see Thomas showing off the bountiful bosom of Martha Washington, George’s wife. Thomas was my favorite girl from this film, but Martha was pretty nice in her own right. I personally prefer a makeover she gets during the finale, and maybe I’ll draw that version of her eventually, but for now I’m happy to have her debut along with a new Thomas pic in time for America’s birthday.
This is a commission I completed recently, and saved for today’s holiday. The character is Star Butterfly from Disney’s new show “Star vs. the Forces of Evil”. She’s a princess from another dimension, and the concept here is that she misunderstood “stars and stripes forever” as “stars and strips forever”.
I started watching this show as a result of this pic, and I like it a lot. I’m planning to do more with it in the future, specifically more explicit concepts.
I experimented with colors here, going a bit outside my usual comfort zone. You guys may remember another nighttime commission I did not too long ago where I tested out purplizing the image. While I don’t hate how that turned out, I kind of like this one more. I also used a much more pastel palette, which I think helped a lot.
