Headless Naked Man

That is all...


I've been experimenting more with graphic design lately. Typography is very interesting. It's crazy how people make a whole font...takes a lot of work! I've been making pages for a fashion magazine which are on my webby site. These are just some doodles I was experimenting with as many fashion brands use loose, sketchy type.

Tom Hardy Digital Painting

I gave up on traditionally painting Tom Hardy so I used him to practice digital painting. I need to work on clothing and hair. Very hard to do!

A Pig, Cow, Sheep & Chicken!

This is me attempting to create child- like characters! I love the traditional water colour look in some children's books. Lost and Found by Oliver Jeffers is a lovely one.
I thought I would have a go painting with my gouache paints. Only problem was - my scanner made everything look horrible! I tidied up everything in Photoshop but they look so much nicer on paper.

Farm Animal Sketches

I've been reading a few blogs lately about ways to improve drawing. Apparently you can become an expert in any field with 10,000 hours of practice. I dunno about that! I'm sure you have to have a flair for the subject matter. Reading all these blogs just made me want to constantly draw....non-stop.
Anyways I began some practice with some sketches of animals.

I'm slightly Tom Hardy obsessed...

I thought as my traditional portrait of him went a little wrong...I would practice to paint Tom Hardy digitally. I made some new brushes which I love! I fiddled with a load of the settings on Photoshop which really helped. I kinda have too many to choose from now. My digital paintings always seem to come out too smooth and never enough texture - this is something that I really wanted to work on. I downloaded some free oil textures to experiment with. It's coming a long so far...only thing's going to take so long to finish! If only I had a cintiq...

Beach Pier Background.

I'm working on backgrounds for a former classmate's masters film a the moment. Exciting :B Look at his work HERE!
The film takes place on a pier - I was given great reference photos and some artists work to look at. This is the main artist that the backgrounds were supposed to take inspiration from! Janet Bell - so cute and simple, and I love the colours.

Janet Bell

I wanted my version to have similarities but with added shading and I guess my own style of drawing - even though I don't feel I have a particular style really. 

These are a few props of trees and houses that would be in the backgrounds with the added Janet Bell twist.

And this is one background I've kinda finished..ish! I won't post anymore for now as I don't wanna spoil the film!
