So, what am I working on, and how can you help? Check out the new video at:…

I'm Garrett Gilchrist. I draw, paint and animate, and I also write, direct and edit feature films, like the superheroine film "Shamelessly." I am a film restorationist who edited The Thief and the Cobbler: Recobbled Cut and Star Wars Deleted Magic. I created Whosprites, the lost Doctor Who animation project. I've been a vendor at several conventions. I've written fourteen screenplays.

Yes, I do paid commission drawings! Many of the drawings here are commissions. Usually the cost is $50-100. This is negotiable depending on the difficulty of the piece.

Bridal Veils by tygerbug
Bridal Veils

I was asked by Mickie Banyas to create poster artwork for her film Bridal Veils. A Reconstruction-era period piece shot in Georgia, it is a comedy/drama about two would-be brides who get more than they bargained for on their travels.

I worked with Mickie as an actress in my 2007-8 feature Shamelessly She-Hulk, where she played a nurse. Actresses Mickie Banyas and Kyle Larsen are depicted here. The poster was first drawn with pencil on several large sheets of paper, and portions were inked with a Copic F02 drawing pen. This was refined over several drafts before being painted in Photoshop.

The poster itself went through a few concept drafts. Mickie and the horse are basically what I drew originally, but that version was rejected at first, and we tried something entirely different before returning to the original concept. Bridal Veils is now playing in festivals as a short film. A feature version is in the planning stages.

Knight Lore by tygerbug
Knight Lore

In mid-April 2015, I was approached to create the box art for Team Pixelboy's Colecovision port of Rare's 1984 video game Knight Lore. I delivered the final version in mid-May.

There was a lot of history which inspired and informed the way the characters were portrayed.

The isometric game, ported from the MSX by Riddler, stars Sabreman, an adventurer and part-time werewolf who also starred in such 80s Rare games as Sabre Wulf, Underwurlde and Pentagram. Sabreman was clearly a Rare mascot character. He would have returned on the XBOX in Rare's game Sabreman Stampede, but the game was cancelled. Sabreman had a cameo in "Banjo-Tooie," and starred in "Sabre Wulf" for the Game Boy Advance. Sabre Wulf is also a star of the Killer Instinct series.

These early games were rereleased in 2015 in the Rare Replay collection, but in their promo art Sabreman was depicted as the tiny, indistinct pixel art from the 80s games rather than the redesigns he received later. I wanted to show a more definitive Sabreman, with something approximating his cartoony looks from the N64 and XBox eras.

The werewolf and wizard took a more realistic tone, though I redrew the wizard to have more cartoony proportions (still based on his posing in the original game's art). The games have shown both cartoony and dark takes on the Sabre Wulf character.

The game has been remade unofficially several times for modern platforms. Its isometric gameplay where you explore dangerous rooms in an extensive dungeon may remind you of NES titles like Solstice (though the actual Famicom version of Knight Lore by Jaleco isn't super accurate).

Much of the background was rendered in 3D via Poser using existing models, and then heavily reworked in Photoshop. The logo was recreated first in Photoshop then in 3D via Poser.……

The Dermis Probe [The Elephant Viewers] by tygerbug
The Dermis Probe [The Elephant Viewers]

Commissioned piece. I had to match the art style of an existing drawing, which is from an angle where you - and the people on the scaffolding - only see one elephant. From this angle you can see six elephants, previously hidden behind the first. It's all about perception and perspective.

Hello, my name is Wario94 and I enjoyed your fan made restoration of The Thief and the Cobbler. Now, here's my question: are you going to made the mark five version of The Thief and the Cobbler: The Recobbled Cut?

There are no current plans for a Mark 5 of the Recobbled Cut. The Mark 4 took seven years research and 2.5 years of work. It can be viewed here.

None of the images are loading at that link, but I'll take your word for it that some idiot is claiming my art as their own. Happens all the time tbh.

I messaged them about it, they didn't answer. And yeah, it does really happen usually.
