Keep Calm and Form Voltron

Last year in June Dreamworks released an animated show exclusively on Netflix. When a close friend suggested that we watch Voltron, I wondered why she was recommending some corny robot cartoon from the 80's. She was not.

Voltron: Legendary Defender is a re-imagining of the 1983 Voltron: Defenders of the Universe. It's beautifully animated, fantastically written and over-flowing with amazing characters. Honestly I could write a book about how great this show is.

But this isn't a book, it's an art blog. Far less reading and writing involved.

This was the first round of Voltron fanart that I drew. I always start with head sketches when trying new characters. It's actually strange to look back at these and see how far I've come, mainly in drawing Shiro (bottom right).


I also realized around the time I was hopping aboard the Voltron train that Daniel Henney (Japanese-American actor) looks a lot like Shiro. Of course now that this drawing is old I see all sorts of errors with it. Maybe I should re-do it as a challenge. The facial anatomy makes me want to cry.
