And here’s a little peek at a pencil piece I’ve been noodling with whenever it gets quiet at the shop. Really enjoying this one !
All I have at the moment are sketches and wip shots… so little time, so many ideas I want to work on! :( Maybe one day I can stop working long hours every damn day and maybe get some art done…
That said, I’m trying new sketch techniques, challenging but in a really fun way… I think I’m getting better, y’know. :)
Fishy flash. Really enjoying brush and ink atm.
Something finished! Woo.
This was supposed to be just a quick exercise in working without an underpainting, but I fucked that up royally. 2 weeks, in between everything else I had to do - although to be fair, I did have a lot of shit to do, so it was stolen hours here or there. Didn’t really learn what I wanted to with this one, but eh. C’e la vie. I’m sure I learnt something. And besides, that bright red hair was fun - most of it was painted straight from the tube of cadmium red!
Oils on plywood board. Obligatory “this-looks-better-in-real-life sorry-for-the-shitty-photo” speech. Model is the absolutely stunning Sedona.
Little sketch of a naked murderous elf princess to show I’m not dead yet. New stuff coming soon!
Watercolours were irritating me, so I took a break, did some Pilates and drew Marlene Suicide instead. (I’d link her but I’m on my phone, so…)
Sunday morning prep sketches, trying to fall back in love with drawing but painting has stolen my heart.
(Sketching style = messy AF.)
This was so much fun - even though tattoos are fucking hard to paint, man! This is part of a new little project I have going on atm - I may let you in on that soon… It’s heartbreaking, when you’re working in oils, (or any traditional media really) to really love how something has turned out and be really proud, only to find out there’s no way you can capture the texture and shine and subtlety of it on a photo. Trust me when I say this looks much better when you see it in person, I just wish I could share that with you guys!
