Interesting private commission. Been a while since I worked with actual paint. Gel transfer, tissue paper and acrylic on stretched paper.

Goku for the DBRedraw challenge over on Twitter, attempting to make a better illustration of an official screengrab.

I spent a while with this trying to make it graphical but it wasn't working, so I ended up painting it and I actually really like how it turned out in the end.

Unfinished photo study of Disney's Animal Kingdom but I don't think I'm going to get round to finishing this now. Maybe.

Lion study, cropped it for Instagram and apparently didn't save the full one. Clever.

Something a little different, just messing about on the iPad with the Apple pencil in various apps.

Just wanted to play with the ink bleed brush in procreate, so here's an imaginary skull drawing.

I suck at foliage, so I wanted to do a photo study with a lot of foliage. But then I found a brush that's a bit cheaty. Now I feel dirty about it haha. The real problem here is the bulbous water.

The Tatsu tribute illustration is finished! Had this idea for a while. Wanted to avoid using gradients at all with this one which was quite the challenge - gradients don't translate well with digital tshirt printing. It's available on T-shirts and posters from my Etsy, I'll be adding it to Redbubble later, where a wider range of products will be available.

Photo study from a shot I took at Busch Tampa some years ago. Was just cleaning stuff out and it seemed like it would make a nice study reference.

Photo study of Jungle Cruise. I quite like how the foliage looks but I still suck at man made solid structures.

Friday, 23 March 2018

Working on the other Kanto starters like the Blastoise from a few weeks back.

Photo study of interesting rock. Not that exciting, but worth me doing. I like how the clouds and foliage turned out but not so much the rocks.

Just a trio of building sketches, references were used but not religiously. Just trying to get more confident in structural forms and creating interesting fantasy buildings for theming work.

Monday, 19 March 2018

Really wanted to draw Goku's new form and tried to push myself to attempt an interesting arm and hand pose, but I wussed out of drawing the full hand. Still, came out nice.

A friend picked up the Papo Carnotaurus in Toys R Us liquidation sale for me, so I did some sketches based on it.

This is barely more than a scribble I realise... But hey, it's something! And in the efforts to keep up with art every day, we'll take a scribble now and then.

I really like how this photo study of Chaipas at Phantasiland came out. Tried to use a variety of brushes to convey the different textures.

Experiment in procreate trying to make something a little more graphical. Here's a tiki head!

A Norse themed dark ride based loosely on the story of Fenrir is an idea that has been knocking about in my mind for a good 7 year now. But I've always avoided  really going into any depth with it, because coming up with a narrative is a not something I felt comfortable with.

I've just finished reading Every Guest is a Hero by Adam Berger, and it's sort of spurred me on. So today I just wrote down what I had, did some research about Norse mythology, and fleshed it out with the skills learnt from that book.

Then I redrew Fenrir. I want his aesthetic to carry the rest of the attraction. He's the most important thing.

Photo study of a crow in Procreate, rather like how this speedpaint turned out.
