Elwood in the Snow

A work in progress that I've kind of abandoned for reasons... anyway, enjoy what I did so far!

Nebula, in Progress

A star field background with some nebula action going on. Nothing too flashy or eye catching, there's going to be some foreground activity I don't want overshadowed. The first picture in this post, actually.

Life Drawing, Legs

I might start using the A3 scanner in our studio for this stuff. Photographs never come out well when the paper's not perfectly flat and with crap light sources.

Trooper Turnaround

A rough turnaround of Trooper, the character in my current animation project. A few bits are a little wonky, and I was brush inking this with caffeine shakes so the lines are a little off aswell.

EDIT: Re-inked.

Max with Brush

As I mentioned before I'm keen to let go of my Wacom and get some more stuff done on paper. Well here's another attempt at brush inking, using a Faber-Castell brush pen, with emphasis on different line widths.

Once I get some more practice I might feel like spending the money on some nice bristol or something, which should, maybe, possibly, in a fair world, improve the quality a little. Although I still need to learn to get faster, smoother strokes, or find some way of keeping my hand/arm extra steady.

Hatching, there's another thing I need to look into. I've done it very sketchy here, not sure if I like it. This is all the Beano's fault! I saw some original artwork up close recently and was just blown away by the quality of it. As a kid I never really appreciated what went into these drawings. Although I'm sure a lot of it gets lost when it's shrunk way down and printed cheaply.

I don't have any pictures to show some of the excellent line work on the characters but this is a nice example of the kind of quality these kids' comics have/had (I haven't seen a recent one in a decade).

Oh, and while writing this I realised Max has the Batman logo on his tag...

More to follow!

A quick visual knock up for a course project. I'm borrowing this character from another project of mine, but she may change a bit during the production.

Dundee Law

I found an old sketch I wanted to upload it, but it was pretty smudged and dirty. So I decided to ink it, which lead to colouring and well, here's the result. This parodic character gets his name from this so there's a bit of a pun in there too.

3D Photos

A selection of 3D images I've created; some new, some old. You'll need 3D glasses for these to work of course... or perhaps some coloured celophane (left eye red, right eye cyan).
