The first illustration in a series called Father and Son, that depicts the two characters, their relationship and their lives as they change and grow together.

I've been doing this gradually in my spare time, mainly in the evenings after work and at weekends. I was originally inspired to create a 'gentle giant' type character after seeing some wonderful examples of character design and styles in the awesome book Masters of Anatomy. The older character, his bulky build and his gentle expression lent perfectly to his role as a father type figure and the son character and the relationship between them naturally followed suit.

I love the expression on the father.

This is really cool, the lighting is so warm and nice.

Has some pretty sweet atmosphere going on.

AlexPartridge responds:

Thanks. I decided to spend a lot of extra time on getting the lighting and the atmosphere in the whole piece just right. I even completely started again several times too, as there were times it just didn't feel right. But it was certainly time well spent and it paid of in the end!

This drawing gave me a little smile and a warm feeling, I love it when a drawing does that. The lighting and shading looks great and I like the character design.

I am very curious to the next ones in this series and how they grow. Will they be happy, will they be fighting, will they be separated? Looking forward to them!

AlexPartridge responds:

Glad you like it. Yeah, I didn't want to go overboard on the emotional side of things, so warm and fuzzy is definitely more what I was aiming for!

I've got some ideas floating around for the next few pieces but nothing is concrete as of yet. And, as you've pointed out, some will be happy some will be sad, so do stay tuned! :)
