    here we go again...let the dumping commence

    Some sketchbook doodles from yesterday, monsters and the like obviously





    And then there was this lot - NO idea whats going on here


    And then were were a couple of speedpaints this week, about 30 mins each

    "Bad Hair Day"


    And finally

    "Time Traveller"


    I've got some other ideas for more finished work, but finding the time is the trick...

    i've been trying to make sense of an idea for a picture - struggling a little with composition, i think it might be working, but i'm not 100% sure. I might leave it for a bit and see how it looks with fresh eyes...

    so here's some work in progress - i'm not going to explain whats going on, as i'm not entirely sure myself.

    Interesting idea. I'm looking forward to seeing what you can do with it.
    Regarding the rest of your SB, well, your style is just really cool, for the lack of a better word. Also a great sense of humor and creativity. Thanks for sharing. Cheers!

    got distracted tonight by a speedpaint topic that i decided to work up, so no more progress on the previous image

    Still, i now have a dashing victorian gentleman demonologist (and scourge of dark forces) to show for it.

    "Protection" (about 2 1/2 hours)


    Still some more stuff to do to it, but this is good enough for now...he does need a name though, hmmm...

    sweet stuff you´ve got going in here!

    keep it up!

    i guess an interest in victoriana and horror films will inevitably overlap with Mignola - but as you say, HE'S THE MAN!

    cheers for dropping by

    I took some time out this weekend to do absolutely nothing* , so the only things i've got to show for myself are some pretty unfinished speedpaints (mostly done in 20-30 minutes)

    #1 - Injured



    #2 - A Bad Idea



    #3 - Femme Fatale



    Nothing left. Thats it. FINITO.

    I didnt get much time for any digital work this week, i've been brushing up on theory/tutorials and also trying to wean myself off a wacom and onto a more nutritious and crunchy diet of traditional media

    So to start, here's some random doodles i didnt have time to take any further - even though there's a few i have definate plans for



    Then today, using a cast generously on loan from the Cakeypigdog collection, i tried my hand at some more still lifery...no plumb lines, i'm trying to just get comfortable with graphite before i worry about that sort of thing



    Ah, isn't she lovely



    And finally, i finally managed to break the psychological terror barrier that's gripped me every time i even think of using paints.
    So even though this is just some hour and a bit of gouache tomfoolery, its a bit of a personal milestone, having not gone near anything paint like for nigh on 6 years...eventually acryllics are on the cards, and who knows, one day, the mother of all media..OIL PAINTS

    Baby steps first though



    Slán go fóill!

    thanks for the comment, and the use of "by jove!". I don't suppose you were wearing a monocle and tophat while you were writing it?

    Ah yes, tophat, lost that whilst peering down the u-bend. But thank heavens I had recently attached my pince-nez to my watch-fob! Monocles are so ten years ago.

    a couple of recent studies here.

    The first is from a screen-grab from "Breaking Bad" - i tried to loosen up on the brushwork and go a little madder with the colour, i.e. worrying about relative colour and warmth/coolness rather than exactly reproducing whats "real". Which seems to have worked to some degree.



    the second is a from the fillum "The New World" - one of only 2 good films* made by Colin Farrell (and his eyebrows)



    Both took about an hour and a half each



    *The other was "In Bruges"

    Went to the inaugural Dr. Sketchy event in Nottingham yesterday (with Mr. Anderson, Mr. CakeyPigDog and some of his very talented co-workers) and had a blast - even if i did almost blow a gasket trying to do some of the drawings within the 10 minute time limit.

    So here's some of what was produced - again, 10 minutes isnt a lot of time, and on top of that was my general discomfort with non-digital media. (There's no undo!)







    For the final drawing i decided to stop trying to draw "properly" and focus in on the moustachio’d countenance of the compere in the group shot.



    All that and i won a chocolate bun too.

    p.s. oh and here's some sketchbook studies from during the week. Frogs and a lonely simian - what more could you want?

    Quite a mixed bag this week, so here's what's what

    SpeedPaints
    A couple based on the topic "Mean Machine", done in the usual hectic lunchtime 30 mins

    Mean Machine #1


    Mean Machine #2

    HEADCASES

    I've just started a sketchbook devoted to quick studies - the initial target is 100 heads..after that who knows, hands, gestures, poses, ears and all that


    And now for some utterly pointless sketchbook doodles

    Its a bit rough and ready, but these are supposed to be the sort of thing you DON'T want to wake up and find lurking at the end of the bed


    And then there's the following - no rhyme or reason whatsoever




    And that's SHALLOT.

    FIN

    I've not been round here much for a while - i've mainly concentrated on updating my blog > http://pixelherding.blogspot.com/ < rather than updating my CA sketchbook.

    So in case anyone was interested what i've been posting over there, well have a look for yourself - it's been a busy few months!

    Speedpaint - CuChulain


    Some like em Rotten


    Red Carpet


    Reaper Sketch


    er..


    Speedpaint - Champ!


    Speedpaint - Moustache


    Speedpaint - Birdhouse


    Speedpaint - BlackCat


    Speedpaint - Madness


    Speedpaint - Chesspiece (the castle/rook in this case)


    Meltdown


    Eh, Mate


    Still Life - graphite


    Apple Study - graphite


    Apple Study - Photoshop


    Graphite Sketch


    Pipe Study


    Crow Study


    Face Study - Oldman


    Face Study - Old Man


    Face Study - Rutger


    Character Sheet


    Speedpaint - Spellbound


    Speedpaint - Exile


    Speedpaint - Feast


    Speedpaint - Furnace


    Speedpaint - Out of Reach


    And thats pretty much everything worth showing for now - over the shortterm i'll be carrying on doing head studies and brushing up on my basic anatomy, after that...who knows!

    another head study to carry on this months theme

    not really going for any particularly fancy rendering style, just a simple round brush and trying to make as accurate marks as possible. It's all about the drawing!

    not a huge amount to show for my weekend, but i did get round to doing another head ref piece - despite the apparent simplicity, a lot trickier to do than it looks. Craggy old men (no offence mr. henriksen) are a LOT easier to draw...
