Putting the daisies in! Wow do I need to take photos in daylight or get another lamp. D: the colours are much brighter in real life.
Month: November 2017
I’ve finally succumbed to SkillShare. Illustration and inspiration: keeping a sketchbook by Leah Goren is the first class I’ve watched were I was inspired to do the ‘homework’. During ink toner I was desperate to paint the autumnal colours around me, and what better way than some quick ink and wash sketches? I put the […]
The hardest part….

I usually encourage a more gunshot attitude (I am very good at telling my students to put more shadow in, height lights etc) but when it comes to commissions, my knees are knocking, and my hands are shaking.

Inktober 20017 #31
Mask. Reference from Letzteschatten-stock. Well I think the month has helped me get better at drawing, and noses, but I still need to work on drawing smoke. This photos a bit lighter than the original as it was to dark, but I didn’t really notice until now as I was galloping out the door to […]
