On Location II





Hey guys, I've been back home recently. I had nothing to do... So I went sketching on location with a friend. It was a really hot day today.

Yeah, I was experimenting with these. First couple of pictures I was just focusing on drawing the shadows and the rest are either just doodles or using lines to draw the picture. Kinda like etching...

After that sketching, me and Nat went to a sushi bar! Haha good thing my aunt was there! She was the head chef, so we got free sushi! Woop woop! Hehe... Definitely gonna get one again! Was on the train when I sketched that last pic... Geez! Those Indian people in the train just don't know when to shut up! I could hear them laugh their mugs off through my headphones! Blah...

Messing About

Mmmmm.... really bored... haha I just took this drawing out of my sketchbook... decided to color it 'cause it looked interesting... It's a character from Naruto by the way. Been doing quite a lot of cell shading... I need to do more paintings soon D:/

Still got some commissions to finish. going to London and Birmingham next week with a friend, though! :D

Yesterday, I went to a Chinese restaurant with my friend, and damn... was the food too much! I cant believe I wasted 25£ on dumplings and main meals that I didn't even finish! hehehe But yeah, the food was great though.

That's all for now, I guess.

Hmmm...

Yo! Here's another update... Just a random doodle I found in my sketch book. Quite like it so I decided to ink it... hehe.... errr...

I dunno, I have quite a lot of sketches in my sketch book... I need to find time to scan them. Also I'm working on commissions at the mo, so I might have delays on updates hehe...

But yeah, I need to find some inspiration for more personal work. Might hit up that posemaniacs and start doing 30-sec quick gesture drawings!

Peace out!

Covers





Phew, another update. Here's some old covers I've done quite a while ago. In case you're wondering, these are Naruto covers. I've been doing this for a long time now, and this is one of the things that got me into matte painting in the first place. You should see my first attempts... They looked awful... But yeah, I think I might post these here regularly... I do usually tend to color some pages when a new chapter's out. It's good practice.

That's all for now. Enjoy!

PS: Father's day tomorrow! Just got my dad an after shave 8).

Busy Busy Busy!

Ack, haven't posted anything in a while... I've been doing some commission work... So I will post them here once I've compiled them... Done about 50 character drawings... haha... It was fun though.

That aside, I havent been doing much lately... I have no access to my computer, so all i can do are sketches and what not... not matte paintings or rendered pieces... So yeah, will update once I get hold of proper mediums.

Need to get some funky pencils too! check this site out, they sell some good pencils! Mmmm... What else is there to say? Yeah, work work work I guess! I was reading an art book by Bobby Chui today. Forgot I had it... Been on my desk for ages. It's got some good words of wisdom when it comes to art. So yeah, I'm quite motivated recently :)

Highlight of the day.... Hmm... I bought a rubber! Yay! Excitement!
No... I was just in desperate need for one... Dunno why... I was gonna buy a sharpener when all I use was a mechanical pencil >.>.... But I did lose my lucky sharpener... :/ It was a really good one though... *sad*... But yeah, I also saw some old friends from school! Holy crap! How much do people change in such a short period of time?!

Enough talk... I'll post something soon!

Went to the beach today, it was nice and relaxing. Good thing it was cloudy, so the breeze was nice... Went for a sketch up, but I didn't really draw much... I was just perving at people and got sticky from the sea breeze haha... Don't!.... Though, I did see some funky clouds! Check these out... It looked epic haha.
