    Wink GDSWorld: The Journey (Year long search for the perfect medium)

    Hey Everyone,

    I'm on a year long journey to find my a style and medium that works for me and i'll be keeping this sketchbook updated with my latest works.
    I started the journey 3 weeks ago and have already tried Watercolour and Ink. Bare in mind that i'm a Digital artist so this is all new to me.
    If you're interested in my work, you can follow my journey on my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/gdsworld or if you prefer facebook then http://www.facebook.com/gdsstudio

    If you have any feedback to help me improve please let me know and my mates occasionally challenge me to try different things, if you think you have a challenge which you think will push me
    as an artist. Just write it down below and i'll give it my best shot.

    My website is live now, and i'll always be adding more content to it as I go along. http://gdsworld.co.uk/


    This week, the medium is markers:

    Was trying to imitate Sam Spratt's brushes and style. Obviously the masters know how to do it well.

    Started as a speed-painting but I decided to take it a little further.

    Some more photo studies and I also pushed myself to do some anatomy studies before going to bed. Feels like all the life drawing has helped me slightly in recognising the shapes.
    Main concentration at present is on form.
