Welcome to Lightships Lightbox this is a collection of ongoing experiments and new work by Graham Nightingale, Some of it I like a lot and some of the images are fails where i beg peoples indulgence and help. I hope you guys like some of it too and take the time to go through and leave a comment or two.
I used to say that I blamed sketchbook squarely on Jeffx99, because he said to me in a post "you should put some stuff up in a sketchbook!" That has now changed and I now send a huge thank you to a great many of you who take the time to help me out including JeffX99, Arenhaus, Tinybird, Mr Corlan, Velocity Kendall, ShiNin and of course LtPlissken for stopping me taking myself too seriously, Thank you all.
Ok enough grovelling and on with the art:-
This one was a copy of the one by frank Frazetta in the front of the Icon book (buy it folks its brilliant). Anyway I was looking at anatomy at the time and got bored and copied it for practice, I am not doing anything else with it because its basicaly Franks and I have enormous respect for the man and his works, what an inspiration tha man was, a very sad loss to all.
An old dude from inside my head somewhere He occured whilst doing the loomis thing, draw a ball and put the lines in etc etc. anyway carried on with one and he happened.
This guy is supposed to be moving cautiosly forward, sneaking up on something and he just looks like he had an accident in his trousers instead so he's not going anywhere either! Lol
Again I was practising anatomy and started to think of how the anatomy of a centaur would go together (kids were watching Narnia).
some of the practice bits, hopefully by constant repetition I can add them to the figures without them looking like Mr spocks love child with quasimodo, hopefully Lol
