Dr. Helen Magnus by Alrynnas Dr. Helen Magnus by Alrynnas
Well, started this a few hours ago and couldn't stop from finishing it until it was done... My sleep schedule is going to pay dearly for this.

Anyway, wanted to get my first Sanctuary fan art done while I'm still kinda in the mind set for it after watching a bunch of episodes and special features, and now moving onto the commentary. I really do love everything about the show.

So this is a drawing of one of the main characters, Helen Magnus, played by Amanda Tapping :meow: I remember when I first saw Sanctuary, it was so jolting to see her with brown hair compared to the short blond hair she always had in Stargate, since I pretty much grew up watching that show :XD: But now I simply love her hair *-* And her accent has definitely grown on me.

All this was painted on one layer, mostly for practice, though that was not my intent when I started. Was a lot of fun to keep it up. I was especially happy with how her eyes came out xD Drew this with a screenshot open I took from the first ep to get her looking right.

Anyway, I seriously need sleep now. Hope you like this!

Helen and Sanctuary belong to their respective owners.

(Done in SAI.)

Hahah, mission accomplished then, kekeke.
I'm actually thinking about cosplaying as her some day, so who knows, there may be some photos of the character in the future :P

Heheh, thanks :D
I couldn't help but think how much you'd probably like this character as I was watching the first 2 seasons xD She's British, has long curly/wavy brown hair, can totally kick ass in heels, has a great wardrobe. Oh, and when they flashback to her in Victorian England (yep, the show has ties to 1880 London), she's got blond hair in tight curls, a big hat, and other Victorian-style clothing :XD:

Hahah xD While I'm not too sure if the show itself is quite to your taste, I think you would at least like some of the characters...and appreciate all the animation that goes into it since it's actually a virtual show (most of the locations and monsters are animated, woo!). So if you'd like to take a look at it, and are unable to find it easily yourself, I can definitely bring it over when back in Oakville.
Fffft, halfway through summer ><

lol already watching some on YouTube, and I have to say it is interesting, much less suspenseful then Firefly so it is great to watch when sculpting, I like it.
Also, very appreciative of the animation XD

Hahah, oh yeah, much less suspenseful than Firefly xD Many of the people that work on Sanctuary worked on the show Stargate, so it feels much more like that xP Hope you're able to enjoy it!
And thanks to this, the company that does all their animation is now on my list of places to work, and it's in Canada, so woo :P
Yay, sculpting! xD Hope you don't end up tossing this one out too! xP

I've never seen the program X3 But this looks awesome, I'm so envious of people who can paint portraits, I can't draw realism to save my life xD And it's amazing that you painted it all in one layer too! :o I love the eyes. They look really alive! ^^

Hahah, thanks! :D Yeah, painting in one layer was a lot of fun and good practice since I'm normally tentative over doing that. Always so afraid of messing something vital up! :XD:
