Indiana Jones by diablo2003 Indiana Jones by diablo2003
This is one of the submissions that I hesitate to submit to DA because I don't know how to feel about them. I work largely from my own imagination and rarely, if ever, use reference so it's always weird to draw from a photograph. I don't mean to dog on the people that draw from photographs exclusively but I find that it doesn't require very much imagination and relies much more on technique and skill, much like a draftsman ( a skill which I could stand to work on a bit more). I prefer not to do it if I can help it but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to draw Indiana Jones. These are trading cards that are going to be randomly inserted into packs of Indiana Jones trading cards from Topps so Indy fans get the chance to pull an original piece of artwork when they buy packs of cards. Each card it drawn at only 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches(roughly the size of a baseball card) so I had very limited space but I found it to be a fun little exorcise. In fact, depending our your monitor size, you're seeing them at a bit bigger than I drew them.
All are done traditionally using anything I could find around my drawing table including copic markers, watercolor, prismacolor, pencil, and white and black ink. Each card took me anywhere from 10 minutes to 4 hours depending on the card.
If you want to read more about the card set check out Topps at [link]

Hope you dig!

The attention to detail and closeness to the actual people is phenomenal, especially since these were done at a rather small size! Amazing job! :D

Srys, this is awesome!

I can see all your work, the attention to details...the shading, the color it bring all the memories from the movies to my mind, like I'm watching them again! I'm a huge Indiana Jones fan and I can guarantee that this is one of the best Indy pictures I ever saw.

This is AWESOME! :WOW:

oh my lordy.
My favorite character casted by my favorite actor since i was a little girl

i am literally singing "Use somebody" by Kings of Leon while i am looking at these pictures
"SOMEONE LIKE YOU WOOOAAAHHHHHHWOOAAAAHHHH"


this is truly a masterpiece of masterpieces; with the greatest people, the greatest scenes,
the greatest coloring, shading, lighting, etc

everything about this is wonderful, and i get what you mean about the coloring off of a picture; doesnt really leave much to imagine. but this is incredible.

I love you. you made my morning xD Thank you so much!
