    Hey Dan I do feel at the moment that the direction of the ship and the face are clashing and also that the proportions of the face hair and canvas all seem to be the same giving the effect of it being split in half horizontally. I think you need to decide what you want the focal point to be, either the ship, the face of the hair? At the moment I feel the ship should be a lot smaller. I think a balance of two thirds for the bottom (face and hair), one third for the ship and a bigger sky.



    You have drawn me right in with the concept of this so I shall keep mulling it over if you don't mind and come back if I get any good ideas. I am imagining a mermaid rising from the sea to claim the ship and drag it down to a watery death. Her hair becomes a turbulent sea of waves with the ship being thrown up on the crest of a wave, full sails blowing in the wind...will the survive...or all face the beauty of their death.

    Thanks again for taking the time Marian, it's on the back burner for now but one of these days I'm going to make it work! It's fast becoming my white whale, which reminds me I must do a Moby Dick illustration at some point, probably should read the book as well......

    Anyway, my big super awesome job is done so I have been able to do my own stuff the last few weeks. It's been fun but my goodness do I need to study. On the bright side I can now show some of the stuff I've been working on for the Olympics. I'll feed them in as I get sign off and the relevant credits.

    The job was creating the illustrations for 35+ posters for the Get Ahead of the Games Olympic campaign, aiming to raise awareness and provide solutions to the inevitable chaos the London Olympics will have on transport across the city and the UK. There were numerous awesome artists working on the project, often several of us on each poster due to the sheer number of them. As soon as I get the names of who did what on what poster I'll post more of them but until then you get the ones that are all my handy work (and have been released).
    First up are a few character concepts for one of the posters, and then the sketch and final paint of one of the characters used in the online campaign. More to come!

    Then we got some studies and some of the stuff I've been working on, I'd love some feedback on the latter two. Got an Ender's Game cover and the same cover with my diabolical typography skills, then an in progress painting for Northern Lights. Oh and some random character sketches for a failed James and Giant Peach cover.

    Thanks,

    Dan

    Looking splendid Dan. That business man in shorts is killer. I like some of the fantasy work your doing as well. It would be cool to see that finalized, my only crit for her is the raised hand gets a bit lost in the values of the background. The alien concepts are cool too. Try adding some variation to the specularity on the skin. Places where it might be more wet or dry.

    Really nice update, Dan! Those latest characters are looking really nice. And the first painting has a very nice mood and flow in it. You should definitely update more often

    Thanks everyone, took a break from everything I had going and just noodled on a sketch the last few days. Shouldn't have wasted the time really, composition and flow is terrible, but was fun so onwards and upwards.

    Glad you liked it mate, but I disagreed :p

    Spent this afternoon reworking it as I felt there was enough I liked to try and salvage something. I think this version is much better, it's pretty lacking narratively but as an image I like it much more.

    Thanks guys,
    Few more bits, couple of characters, some head sketches and some spot illo's done for Olympic website, plus my sketch for one of the bigger posters, along with a little step by step on another (The final stage was done by the agency).

    Feeling very stiff and uninspired recently (cliché I know) so hopefully going to be doing more traditional stuff, and just messing around with some new techniques. COuld go well, could be terrible, tune in next time to find out. Same bat time, same bat channel......
