Sketch o’the Week

March 24th, 2010 | Posted in Sketch O'The Week

This week we continue our ink-wash sketches of the characters of the TV show “LOST” with Terry O’Quinn AKA John Locke AKA Smokey the Monster.


  1. Those eyes and that mouth are so dead-on…I didn’t realize how distinctive Terry O’Quinn’s mouth was until I saw this ink wash sketch. Love the smoke… 🙂

  2. That’s Awesome!

  3. Heidi P. says:

    Haha! Love the smoke…nice touch 🙂

  4. Mike Hasson says:

    love the look of this, Tom, but it’s so tight and controlled – not what I’d think of as watercolor, normally – no happy accidents.

    • Tom says:

      It’s not watercolor, it’s ink wash. Ink is even less forgiving than watercolor as it’s waterproof/permanent the minute it’s dry.

      IMO “happy accidents” are overrated.

  5. Tom says:

    Thanks for the comments, everybody! I promise to do a few more obscure characters as well as the main ones in the coming weeks. Requests are welcome.

  6. gustavo says:

    Locke looks more realistic than the other Lost characters in water col… ink wash!

  7. Jose says:

    How about Faraday?

  8. Awesome Tom!

  9. I don’t know if I’ve missed you doing Richard…I’d love to see him done in the ink wash…he’s very attractive but very creepy at the same time.

  10. I love this Tom. You got him, “Locke” stock and barrel.

    Hi Tom it looks more realistic, that smoke coming from inside of the t-shirt its unique it looks like he was the super mean guy or just a bad smell because of their situation you let it up to our minds, thats art. Take care.

  12. Hey Tom – I really like how this ink wash “style” is working for you. Very nice!

  13. PaulCapurso says:


    I know this might sound crazy but I think this is one of your best!!!(Maybe because I’m a LOST fanatic???)

  14. Love this drawing‚Äö√Ñ√Æit’s dead on. I have a birthday in November. Jus’ sayin’.
