    Coming along leaps and bounds. Your composition is particularly nice, and great to see someone who actually plans out their layout before diving in. Lovely stuff.

    I've been wanting to do some more environments recently so I've done a few little speedpaints to play around with shape, colour and texture. It's been a great exercise and is making me realise things about colour much more quickly than usual.

    @AllyAlbon: Thanks for stopping past! I really enjoy the planning stages so it's not a chore to do lots of sketches before the main event. Finishing full paintings is the hard bit for me

    Today I had a shot at Nathan Fowkes portrait drawing technique which was great fun. It was a real challenge for me to try and use shape and tone rather than line to construct the figure, I'm excited to try some more drawings using this technique.

    Hey man lookin good!! Solid entry for the mech, I can see the techniques from john in there.

    I didn't get a chance to do anything, sucks so bad. Just been snowed under at work and also moved house so I have had pretty much no time to do anything.

    I'm still checking the site tho hopefully I can do one of the other briefs if they come up.

    Also what little time I have off I have been working on my book I told you about. I want it to be hopefully done by November! I'm going to the states then so I want to take it with me and try get it out there!

    A couple of recent sketchbook pages.

    @Matty: Thanks for coming back and looking at my stuff man! The John Park techniques have really stuck with me since the workshop, it's helped speed up my design stuff a lot.

    Sounds like things have been pretty crazy the last few weeks. How did the move go? Are you happy with the new location?

    I hope work on the book is going well, I'd love to check out what you've been doing if you get a chance to share. It'd be great to have it all knocked over by the time you go overseas, would be a pretty impressive body of work to show people while you're there. How long will you be away for?

    Looking good, man. I've always enjoyed your pencil work, but it's good to see you getting into some more digital lately too.

    @MrFrenik: Good to see you online again man, thanks for the kind words.

    I've been continuing to look a little more at environment focused work recently, also a sketch of Rick Deckard just because.

    Here's some life drawing from the other night. I hadn't been to a session for over six months so it was great to get back into it.

    Working on a little 10" x 10" movie themed painting for a show at the moment. Has been a fun piece to work on.

    Good Work Dave! It's been a while since I stopped by your SB but I can see the loomis has been helping and your figure work is coming along nicely. Keep it Up!

    My pal Mike Perry (Wheeljack18) got me inspired to try and work on some portrait paintings. I'm treating them as quick(ish) studies for improving my sense of colour and rendering process.
