Illustration Friday – Perspective

February 27, 2010

This was the first image that came to mind for the theme “Perspective” for Illustration Friday

Don’t think my scanner really did it justice (not saying it’s the best pic in the world…), but hope you like it. (PS – forgot to colour the number…bum!)

Done with coloured pencils/graphite pencil and ballpoint pen.


Monday Artday – Caricature

February 25, 2010

Did these two fellas…Hang on they’re me! Trying to get to grips with caricaturing and so please forgive me if they don’t look like the same guy or if they look like me (although who would know…?)

Monday Artday – Caricature

Illustration Friday – Propagate

February 25, 2010

This week’s Illustration Friday theme is “Propagate”.  Very loose on this theme but here you go.  These were two separate images and once I’d put them together I started to get all sorts of ideas, but time is a factor.  Maybe I’ll return to them at a later date…

Monday Art Day – Theme “Train”

February 18, 2010

Very loosely based on the theme “Train” for this week’s Monday Art Day sketch.

There’s only one way to play at the top level – Train! Sounds cheesy sorry ’bout that!

Did this sketch of football (or soccer) players and thought it could work with this theme.

All done with pencil – HB/2B/6B. Comments/critiques welcome.

Sketchbook Pics

February 15, 2010

Been a busy week of sketching and painting.  Thought I’d throw up some of the sketches I’ve been doing.  A couple of pics are actually copies of pics by other artists and will highlight these. (apologies for the poor scans)

Above pic was just a doodle I started.  No idea who it is but seemed to work as a caricature piece.

This pic is a copy of Daniel from the Bible as drawn by Dennis Jones from his “See With Me Bible” – awesome illustrations in it take a look if you can!!

Again, top left image is an angel from the book of Daniel as drawn by Dennis Jones.  My character on the right didn’t quite live up to his standards – eyes weren’t quite right…

Top image is an image by Skottie Young – didn’t quite get it right, but looks ok.  My character below was one I was pleased with.

Don’t forget as well to have a look at Frank Rain by Eric Merced – Week Two

So there you have it.  More pics will be posted soon, remember all comments and critiques welcome!!

#liverpoolfc Birthday Card

February 10, 2010

Did this for my brother-in-law who unfortunately is a Liverpool fan.

#IF – Muddy

February 10, 2010

This week’s Illustration Friday piece.  Themed “Muddy”

Thought the pig was the obvious choice but wanted a little extra:

Inked and then digitally painted in Photoshop.

#FrankRain – Fan Art

February 8, 2010

Today’s the day (8th Feb) that the long awaited webcomic “Frank Rain” by awesome and talented illustrator Eric Merced begins.

Thought I’d do a quick sketch of Frank Rain using pen – kinda obvious but fun!

Hope you like it and if not – go take a look at the actual artwork.

IF – Focused

February 3, 2010

Thought I’d go for something a little different for me, in the sense that I wanted to try different media.

Illustration Friday – “Focused”

Above was done in Photoshop.

Above was done with acrylics.

Above was done with coloured pencils.

Hope you like them.  All comments and critiques welcome.
