    mah sketchbook. updated 26 Aug

    these are from my college sketchbook.
    the ink pieces are done with a nib and ink "quill" thing, with a broad edge. it was the first time trying this tool and it was hard to control the ink at first cos u had to keep dipping it in ink, but i think i got there ok in the end. very fun to use and i think i prefer it more than a pen. they were drawn in ink streight off the bat so they are quite innacurate.

    will be updated when new work is completed. crits always welcomed

    WIP. an 8 by 6 foot painting im doing for college work.

    really finding it hard to keep up the mood for painting, but its making progress.

    the shine will hopefully be removed once i apply a matt varnish to it when its complete

    first attempt at oils. pretty shoddy but i think i picked up a couple of things. i'm gonna define the lights more once its finished drying.

    i could really do with buying a drying media for the next attempt.

    Just wanted to drop in to say i like your ink and wash drawings. They're probably your strongest work in my opinion. Keep it up.
    "I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain."
