Dropping in to say hello

It’s been a while since I’ve updated this page with anything but life gets in the way of fun! Not sure who this is or what I’m trying to say, just enjoyed playing with some real pens and pencils rather than my recent digital route.


Crikey how many weeks??

So after weeks and weeks and weeks I’ve finally managed to sit down and have a bit of fun with Procreate… by no means back to my former self yet but thoroughly enjoying the time being creative. 

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.
