Ok, so recently I've been trying to sketch in a diferent way, where rather than drawing lots of quick scribbles trying to maybe design a character like a pirate, I've just sat down and slowly drawn out a sketch, taking more time to consider each line. So this guy wasn't designed so to speak, just a one off drawing that I did whilst parked on the sofa, and thought 'he could be fun to colour'. So that's what I've done. I'm enjoying it as a diferent approach to doodling, requires more concentration and thought but worth it. Got another one of these almost done, will be up here in a few days. Just loving the drawing right now!
Oh...and a Xenomorph on the way! MOTHER!!!!

Howdy - Quick post before I run to catch a train - I've been working on a CloneWars pin-up based on the trilogy of episodes starring the NightSisters and the wicked Savage Oppress. He's the main focus of the pic, so I spent a little longer on his pose, finally got to one I was happy with, so it's now in the colour and lighting stages, but the pinup itself still has a few other characters required, so don't expect to see it up here for a month or so...but it was great fun sketching this guy, there's been a lot more cool new characters introduced in the last series of Clone Wars, and I've really been enjoying the show, worth checking out. Back soon with a Pirate!

...or 'Orc Fucka' as u might wanna call her. Up to you.
Been working on this one for a while, finally put some time into the finishing touches....you can see the early sketch in one of the sketchbook posts below....I might put up a development progress thing of the stages this thing went through, from scribble to line to flat colour to lighting etc. Been a lot of fun, she's I suppose just my take on Red Sonja really...with a couple of tattoos, went slightly celtic/mayan with those, liked the blockier look, i was gonna go with a proper tattoo sleeve, but it looked too modern.
Got another couple pieces not too disimilar to this one, so it could be a busy week on the ol' blog!

Thought I'd try painting up one of the sketches that I posted a few weeks ago, so I went for this fat bad man. Thing. I don't paint up stuff in this style that often, so it's definitely good to get practice, trying to lean away from cartoony stuff a little more for a change is probably good for me. It's a little overcooked but hopefully the next one is quicker and easier. Got a few days off so gonna try to tidy the desk, clear the lightbox, resist the x-box, and get some more drawing and painting done.
