new characters

OK, set out with the sole aim of making 3 characters which were graphic and fresh in a few hours. Just realised they look like a band of trick or treaters from some sci fi alternate reality, didn't want to paint them to death, but will definitely revisit one of them and take to a more finished state.. Any preferences?

statue warrior

Been neglecting character a bit lately so thought I'd get my eye in and finish this chap off. About 4 hours work all together, been very influenced by the works of Izzy Medrano and Andy Park, two concept artists that make digital painting looking sickeningly easy. More character on the to finish list coming very soon.

Illustrated panel 2

Been playing with layering sketches and scanned elements for a while now, and have started converting experiments into finished artworks. I like the fact that in Photoshop I can endlessly layer, flatten and draw into. This style is one that will easily make it into real media, at the moment I need more space to get messy in so Photoshop is my 'clean' ideas laboratory where I can experiment quickly and freely. This needs a few more passes to disguise some of its 'Photoshopiness'..

weekend sketch

Ok just a little pen doodle that escalated over the weekend, exemplary of what's going on in the sketchbook these days. Must start colouring these babies..
