IF: Adrift


Ensign Parker has been cast off from Gilligan's Asteroid, stuck with the dingy, a rusty wrench and an inoperable impulse outboard.

lots of cussing and steaming up the head-gear.

Shout out to Star Trek: "NCC" and Gilligan's Island: "Minnow" and McHales Navy: "Ensign Parker"... TV seeps into all of my work, eventually. Another in my mono-chromatic space series - Illustration Friday, Hatch was of a similar style.

I was hoping to do this with my Cintiq, but the delivery still hasn't come. I did a pencil drawing, scanned it into Photoshop and got to work with my Wacom Intuos 3 tablet and pen.

Click to enlarge the frustration... (me with the delivery man)

That blue coupled with his expression, tells the whole story! Vivid narrative!

I love to see the various ideas that come up for Illustration Friday. This is one of my favorites for this week. Great idea! Lovely work!
