Long Time Coming

Hey everyone!

Been a long time since my last post. I had been struggling to make time for personal art, but now I've moved into a new place things are a lot more settled I've finally managed to get something done. (:

This is a submission for Threadless - my first one so far. It's up for voting until the 20th March, so if you'd like to wear this on your bod, give it a vote! (:

I'll keep updating when I've got new stuff to show. Hopefully things should be a lot more regular now (:

Cheers for reading,

Studies and Other Things

Hey everyone!
It's been a long time since a last post, and the reason for that is that I have got a job at an awesome little company called Ninja Kiwi in Auckland! So, I've been pretty busy moving and adjusting to a big shift in my life - but a really welcome and fantastic one I must say!

I've been drawing a lot, but only now have I really thought to put them up here, now I'm getting more settled in. :)

So, here they are! Some are a little older but most are very recent. Enjoy and as always, thanks for reading and watching!

Portrait Practice

I've been spending a lot of time drawing recently, but it has been more general boring (to other people) practice stuff that isn't very exciting and I didn't feel like it should be shared. However I have these pictures!

I decided that I really wanted to do some good face (and partial torso) studies of humans, and I wanted to pay particular attention to making them recognisable to the actors (hopefully I have achieved that!). I have never felt comfortable with drawing  real people before as I was never confident but I finally decided to just go for it!

I will probably be doing quite a few more of these in the near future as they are good practice, fun and I am learning a lot from them too!

 And I find it is good to pick people that a number of people would know because it forces me to make sure that they resemble them- rather than just picking a complete stranger that no one else would recognise! :) Soon I will do females as well!

Well, that is all from me for now. Until next time!

Thanks for reading! :)

Various Recent Studies

I've been trying to focus some more on improving my skill and expanding my visual library- so I figured what better way to do that than do some studies of various things!

Just some black and white studies. I intend on doing some colour studies at a slightly later stage but for now these are a few images that I've been drawing recently:

Anyway, I think it's a step in the right direction- a bit of study is always a good thing. I guess sometimes it's a good idea to try and focus on one thing and really study the heck out of it.

I think I will do this soon- really just do a full page or two so I can understand the creature/ object and how it works.

Thanks for reading,

3D Models For 'Hunt'

Fox and Hound modelled by Isabelle Dela Torre, gun modelled by Cameron Hunt. All of the textures were done by me.

Just thought I would do a quick update on all the stuff that has been going on. The rigs on both characters have been completed (though there aren't many picture of the Fox rig at the moment, I'm sure I can get a few in the next week or so!).

I am going to continue on doing some matte paintings for the backgrounds and try to make the style really come together nicely with the characters and everything, so it should be a lot of fun!

Well, that's all for now! :)
Thanks a lot for reading,
