The Sovereign by basement24 The Sovereign by basement24
Character: The Sovereign / David Bowie
From: The Venture Brothers
Date Completed: July 7th, 2008
Medium: Illustrator

"That's Soveriegn to you."

18th in my Venture Brothers series. This is the first, and probably the last time I will ever draw David Bowie. That's the first time and last time I'll ever say that too.

It's too bad they couldn't get David Bowie himself. That would have been hilarious. I guess if they have enough troubles keeping Colbert on the show, someone like Bowie is unreachable though. Sigh... Damn celebrities and their "too good for things" nature...

EDIT - Thanks to ~Sharkgirl1916 for reminding me that he's got one blue and one brown eye! I completely forgot!!!

Fantastic picture! I love this show! It is a shame they couldn't get Bowie himself. Oh well, the impersonator wasn't too bad.

Nice work on David Bowie as the Guild Solvereign. Did you know he is coming back in season 4? Oh, can you do drawings of Bowie's two bodyguards, Iggy Pop and Klaus Nomi,please?

Thank you. I assumed he'd make a return at some point! I'm afraid I probably won't be doing any VB drawings for the time being, but you never know!

I love Bowie... and I especially love that he's the Sovereign. Calamitous Intent has never looked so good :giggle:

Truth is though while portrayed with those eyes in the show, he actually has two blue eyes in real life. An accident years ago during a fight left his one eye permanently dilated so it appears to be a dark blue/brown to most people (his depth perception is also off in that eye from the damage).

Thanks for the comment! I never knew that about his eye. I knew it was different on the show, but not the 'origin' as it were.

Since the time of my obsession with Labyrinth and then consequentially Bowie I added him to my repertoire of actors and actresses that I know random things about :lmao:. You can see in the image below clearly how his left eye is damaged. Sort of funny but bad, unless what I've read is wrong, the fight he was originally in was when he was fifteen with a friend of his over a girl.

Bowie has one blue eye and one brown

Gah! I can't believe I forgot that! I've made the change, thanks for reminding me! :)

No problem I've got a bad case of "Bowie Fever" I'm crazy about him.
