    Paints

    So here's my first work for the New Year. Last week I took a first stab at night painting, which is tricky, but I am intent on giving it a go and seeing how I may progress. We shall see... The painting below is of Balmoral beach, incidentally one of the most painted areas in Sydney, but don't get too hung up on that. I'll go in search of more obscure corners of the city soon enough.

    The portrait is a commission I did for friends recently of their awesome kid and the last piece is a work in progress, which we'll see how that turns out.

    Figures, figments and vessels.

    There's some great activity on Sydney's water around Christmas. Here are photos from the annual Christmas day regatta and the start of the Sydney-Hobart race, which is on Boxing Day. Never seen so many vessels on the water at once!

    WIP

    Here's a piece I'm working on right now, among other interesting things.
    Also kicking off is the first round of Sydney Art Battles at Name This Bar. It's happening every thursday for the next two months, so swing by and check out the awesome mess we'll be making!

    It should be my turn in a few weeks' time, but I'll post about that closer to the time.

    Brushing Up

    Here's my first stab at matte painting. Getting the hang of it, but the key here is integrating all the elements to look like one cohesive environment. Progress is being made, so watch this space!

    Red.Eye.

    Ink and Photoshop(colours) drawing of Hellboy, as an inking exercise of sorts...

    Here's the first set of my exit from Africa(for a bit) in November 2011. Travel was from Cape Town to Kuala Lumpur via JoBurg. Arriving KL International we caught a train to KL Sentral station, where we arrived dazed and disoriented around dawn. Amazing place, but more snaps will follow in the next few daze, er, days.

    Armageddon outta here!

    Little photo editing exercise for matte painting practise. They don't all look this shoddy!

    And as for the photos:

    Here are some snaps taken upon arrival in KL, we were total zombies hauling all our luggage around looking for the hotel. Humid like only the tropics can be, (Hence the fans at the monorail stations or anywhere people might queue) but eventually the inevitable rains came to cool things down.

    On day two we took a bus down to Melacca on the coast, which is very interesting, because it was a major trading port back in the day. So when the Dutch settled the Cape Colony in SA, it was to service the vessels heading east, and specifically Melacca, so there are lots of connections between the two places. For example all the Malay food we enjoy in SA originates from here.

    But more of that in the next post...

    Firstly, here'd another early exploration of matte painting, I've made some progress since this one.

    And as for the photos:

    Here's some more shots of Melacca, visiting the Sultanate palace. Melacca is a World Heritage City, which means it's all very well preserved, except for the fact that it smells a bit of theme park. I have also not seen as many museums in one place, most of which seem to be closed for renovation(There's a Button Museum for crying out loud!). We went looking for the backstreets, but didn't find them until we were on our way home, so instead we had western food and convention in our faces most of the time, which was a bit exhausting, but overall the place was very interesting. Once again, mainly because of our ties, there are many a Dutch name that crop up all over!

    Day for Night

    Here's a very quick overlay test for turning a daytime scene into night by using layers and light sources. I could have gone the whole nine yards in finishing this, but there's work to be done!

    As for the snaps:

    These snaps were taken during an epically wet afternoon in Melacca. Drops the size of... well, they were big. When the rain passed it was exceptionally grim as the streets were deserted towards what Springsteen termed the Darkness on the Edge of Town. Real gritty industrial area, but time was a-wasting and we needed food, so we went wandering like two lost souls after our excellent foot-massage. Past red-lit buildings we eventually we chances upon one place that could offer us local cuisine, the rest was all overpriced pizza and burgers!

    On a side note, the lit up bicycle taxis are hilarious, but don't expect any kind of value for money, they're there to rob you if you let them. And they each have a ridiculously loud sound system cranking out the widest array of dance-trash you ever heard. The river cruises are much better value, so sit back and trundle along the Big Muddy.

    Dump

    Quick sketch of John C Reilly and...

    Photos of my continued exploits in Malaysia

    Nighttime in Melacca. We took a cruise up the river on a typical water-taxi before heading home by way of an overprices rickshaw type bicycle(but it had to be done!) and some dubious backalleys.
    The next morning we went to see some open water, the Strait of Melacca, my only regret is that didn't go for a swim!

    Long Overdue

    Probably a good time to bring some actual CONCEPT ART for a change!

    So here's a scribble.

    And more Malaysia snaps:

    Day two in Melacca we were wandering around a little, slowly making our way back to the central station to catch the bus back to KL. It's interesting how, once you get the tourist bullshit out of the way you relax and then start seeing what a place is really about. I generally prefer doing this, but Melacca is so geared towards the tourism industry that it's hard to sidestep. I'll try harder next time!
    After witnessing the covert disposal of one of the less fortunate caged rabbits(to the dismay of the petshop owner), we caught the bus and headed into the most ferocious tropical downpour. The sky in the last picture is an indication of this.
