Fading away....

todays painting practice was subbosed to be some fadeing rockstar dude. No one in particular. Lighting inspired by the beautiful sunset outside the window, today and yesterday are the first I have seen in what seems like a lifetime. Amazing what that will do to raise ones spirits.

Well here he is. One bearded, one clean, just for a little extra practice. Thanks for looking.

Another painting

Got that walking girl done. Was a beautiful evening outside, so figured I would try to paint her as if the sun was low in the sky (and to her left).

Again, I don't know how well this has worked, but it was fun to paint either way.

Few more to paint

doing more tight lines ready to paint as soon as I figure out exactly how I want to do that. So a tightend up lizzard man, and some random guy.

Cheers for looking :)

Just thought i would up some lines that i am going to be working on over the next few hours. Will try to up the process as I go, but I am kinda inbetween techniques right now, so I don't know how good these will be in the end.

Ta ta.

Skin test

I haven't been liking how my colours have been turning out after colorizing from tonal greys, especially skin. Figured i would have a crack at starting out painting in colour from the get go. I also wanted to figure out how to do stubble.

The drawing it's self was mediocre, just a means to an end to have something to mess around with, so please excuse the dodge placement of facial features, Just right it off to him being an ugly man.

Wanted this woman to look wicked and sickly, kinda gross. She was inspired by this old fat woman that was with 3 kids (I know this is cruel, but i hope not hers) and she was just puffing away right into these kids faces, one wasn't even out of a pram yet. Seriously, there is no need for that. So yeah, dunno if i pulled it off. May have to play a bit more with it.

Cheers for looking


Just hit a slump at the worst possible time, and I have changed my routine and method to try and compencate. We will see how it works out. Well for now, this is a sketch that I did today, that I am practicing some painting methods on.

Planning on finishing the misconception paint soon, I just need to get out of this rediculas slump first.

Value test

I have been messing around with the values on the ogre, trying to make his muscles defined, with out looking too Dragon ball Z. Will be fiddling some more i think, i am not too happy with it as is.

Just tightend the lines on the misconception sketch, ready for paint. To be honest, I think its lost a lot of what made me like it in the tightening process, so I may just paint over the first sketch anyway, and just used the tighter one for muscle refrence.

well, we will see how it goes.

Few things

Just a couple of sketches i am working on painting. I am trying to work more story into a single image, as a concept artist should, rather than just doing straight up character designs. The ogre and kid is pretty self explanatory as it is i think, but the lone walking guy is part of a larger crowd. Both should have Backgrounds at some point too.

Looking forward to having these done.

Thanks for looking, ta ta
