First for a while!

I’ve finally completed the first of a few home projects to get the creative juices flowing again. It’s been a funny journey and I’ve enjoyed looking back at old techniques and trying to rethink and combine them with where my head is currently at.

The art work is by no means perfect but I’ve really had fun.

Colour study and composition

Unintentionally going back to my routes with this one, or at least what got me excited in the early days, had lots of fun colouring this and love the over all feel…. very cheerful!

Quick colour vlog

While i’m working on the illustration from my previous videos i thought i’d share some of my colouring techniques, hopefully you will find it interesting!

The second episode is up!

So still a little bit of an experiment but i now have my own youtube channel, the plan is to update it as frequently as possible while trying to develop self described projects and in turn progress my illustrations. Video below and please subscribe to the channel.

 

Ink progression

Following on from my YouTube post yesterday, I’ve started inking today and will update my channel later tonight. For anyone interested in my YouTube channel please click Here

Cat sketch 2018

So, it’s been back to the usual absence of art work. I’ve been distracted with other artistic and work commitments which has blocked up any creative juices that I managed to get flowing. So for the first time in weeks I’ve managed to sit down and sketch this guy. Trying to plan out some projects for the year just to give me something to aim for.

Symmetrical layout

Symmetrical direction tonight, I’ve been playing with the idea of these wings for ages… I’m guessing I actually put pen to paper around 8 years ago but the idea was for a set of wings not the bird so it’s a nice development. I tried to stick to a neutral pallet with a little flare of red. 

Bank holiday doodle

Work and weddings have been consuming my time recently, managed to sit down and play with another sketch over the weekend. Continuing the theme of birds. Aiming to play with a few more ideas this week. 

Portable digital illustration = mind blow

It seems like I’m keeping my own promises and pushing on with my creative restart, I feel like I’ve built a very strong project for the year and I’m already feeling excited about what I’ll produce in that time.
The ability to sketch, doodle and polish my work while on the go has only been possible for me in recent months but I would fully attribute my successful concentration on access to apps such as adobe draw and adobe sketch. I am by nature a traditionalist with an interest in digitisation but this has stream lined my work flow. This latest illustration is based on a sketch from around 5 years ago, maybe more. I love pattern making… I love arts and crafts so I suppose these sketchs revolved around those ideas but are now certainly more focused on constructing a bold image.
