A Few of My Disreputable Ancestors



Still plugging away at the Clip Studio toys. The first two of these reprobates were drawn from photographs of the gentlemen themselves; the last two are based on photographs of myself, fiddled with to varying degrees. I threw a bunch of the crosshatching brushes at this one, and used the Parallel Lines ruler to assist me with a lot of the shading on the faces.

William Kirby Johnson Langridge drank a bottle of brandy a day, I've been told. He died by walking off the edge of the White Cliffs of Dover.

I should cop to the fact that I'm not sure if it was my great-great-great-grandfather or my great-great-great-great-grandfather who shot the smuggler ("Digby the Pirate", according to family legend). And he only did smuggling on the side; by day he was a magistrate. So that's all right then.
