Lee Sullivan’s Tips For Drawing Likenesses In Comic Heroes

If you go down to the shops today, you’re sure of a nice surprise. Because in this month’s issue of Comic Heroes, prolific Doctor Who artist, Lee Sullivan, talks about drawing likenesses.

He’s been semi-regularly drawing the Doctors for Doctor Who Magazine since 1988, as well as a series of Radio Times strips starring the Eighth Doctor, so definitely knows what he’s on about! He also plays the saxophone, which makes him much cooler than most of the UK population.

In the five-page feature, he says:

“It is very hard to create a 3D model in your head of what a real person looks like – but, eventually, you want to be able to draw someone from just your imagination – so looking at film footage is a great help. It allows the actor to really get into your brain.”

It’s well worth a look if you’re an artist yourself, if you want to get inside the head of an illustrator – or if you’re just a big Doctor Who fan! Pick up Comic Heroes (from the SFX team) #23 at your local newsagent… or read a quick preview on Lee’s Facebook.
