More Polly and the Blob

30 Jan

Here’s a quick camera photo of a sketch for another of this series. Now I’m getting the style more refined I have four of them planned to do, probably on A3 or A2. Pencil on textured paper.

Happy Pandas

29 Jan

I told you I was obsessed with drawing pandas. This time little less cartoony. Trying to get the characters looking right in ink before I go and paint it on canvas. What do you think?

 

It’s crap, badly lit photo sadly as I haven’t got a scanner here yet…

Robot Paintings

29 Jan

Here are two paintings I did last year. Sorry about the quality of the photos, I’ll get them done properly at some point. The purple one is entitled “You missed one!” and is in the possession of my brother and sister-in-law. The orange one is entitled “My favourite record” and is in the possession of my bestest mate Gemma. Both are acrylic paint on canvas.

 

Some Dumb Bird

28 Jan

Had a play with some coloured ink and drew this fella. I couldn’t think of a name so it’s entitled, some dumb bird. Various inks via brush on textured cartridge paper.

Polly and the Blob

28 Jan

These two pieces were really just a shading exercise. I wanted to try out the stippling technique you’ll see in it. I have one more to finish but it follows the story of a little girl who finds herself in a strange land under her bed. She befriends a friendly blob and they have an adventure. That was in my head any way. Both drawn on cartridge paper with Berol fineliners. I also tweaked the contrast on them as they came out a bit grey on the scans. They are massive by the way if you click them, you may have to wait for loading.

 

Ninja Panda and Panda Girl

28 Jan

I don’t know why but I’ve spent the last few days drawing pandas, in all sorts of styles. It started with these two very simple characters, they’re a bit more refined now but I don’t want to post them because they’re for a secret project I’ll reveal later. Ink via brush on textured cartridge paper.

Robot Hitman

28 Jan

Here we have more of a cartoon feel, a friendly robot hitman. I’m intending to use Photoshop to colour him when I get time, but here’s the inked outline. India ink via brush on textured cartridge paper.

Robot Monster

28 Jan

First of all, Robot Monster. Done with a dip pen and india ink and textured cartridge paper. More of an exercise in shading types with a pen than anything and an illustration of the character that gave me the name.

Hello world

28 Jan

Morning,

I shall be posting some sketches and things I’ve done recently later. This is a sort of brain dump as I practice and hopefully improve!
