Stomp the Uni

A picture of a friends Neopet design that she asked for. I don't play Neopets anymore but when I was younger I used to be completely obsessed with it. It was rather unhealthy of me...

BUT I digress! It's good when I complete drawings. I just need to start putting more backgrounds into things.

Done in Photoshop over several hours.

It's Friday!!

It's Friday! And I've been sick most of this week. Silly winter bugs... But anyway!
Did this guy today. I spent ages working on another piece but I didn't really plan it very well to begin with so it ended up looking pretty bad.

SO I decided I would start on this one instead. I now realise there are a lot of mistakes with perspective and such. (And he looks like he has a wonky leg...)

 But I will try and get it right next time. I now also realise I need to do weapon studies, and I am terrible and have no clue what weapons actually look like. So, it's been a good learning day all around for me! Despite all this, I still kinda like this guy with his dreads.

That's all for now!

Catch you later, and thanks for reading :)

Leopard Study

Just another photo study- this time of a super cute little feline! Not much else to say apart from that :)

Speed painting and new accounts

Two posts in as many days? Well, I'll be darned!

Another speed paint! This time it's another landscape and it's of the Rice Terraces in Banaue (I assume that's spelt correctly). I've never been here but that's one of the wonders of the internet isn't it?

 I discovered it while I was trundling through Tumblr yesterday, so I figured I may as well go and paint the thing.

As you have probably gathered, (nice segue there right?) I have just set up a Tumblr account. So why not take a peak? It's brand new at the moment but I guarantee more stuff is coming soon :).

Click here for my Tumblr!

Well thanks for reading everyone, catch you later! :)

Focusing and studies

I apologise for the lack of updates lately! Time is just really getting away from me at the moment what with projects and the sort to finish off.

OK! Well, today I thought I would knuckle down and do a drawing study. I didn't want to spend too long on it, as it is only a study (which is why this isn't finished), but it turned out better than I was expecting.

I'm really trying to improve my drawing skills as I have decided that I really do want to be involved with concept art (hopefully involving games), so I'm trying to work on the foundations (and actually seeing what things look like- rather than just charging in and not really knowing where things go/ how things are proportioned), so I thought people were a good place to start. It is a little daunting seeing my skill level and where it is at the moment, and then thinking about where it needs to be to become professional. I know I need to improve a lot but sometimes it's a bit difficult to know where to begin...
Practice, practice, practice I suppose! I just need to practice a bit of everything now :)

Well, got to get onto more drawing. That's all for now, and thanks for reading!

Over and out! :)
