Having recently binged on the first three seasons of Vikings, once again, I decided to have a quick sketch. This isn’t a specific character. I just wanted to create something that evokes the chaos of battle. As you can imagine the greater work is around…

I’m a huge nerd for norse mythology and the tales of the Vikings. Swords, axes, dragons and various nordic imagery feature heavily in a lot of my more stylised work. I’m also a massive fan of The History Channel’s Vikings. Currently in Season 5 with…

Mischief promotional video #madewithmischief

I love this application. It’s the perfect sketchbook / whiteboard / flipchart. In this video the narrator explains some of the key benefits: infinite canvas, using ‘pins’, speed and performance. You can even see my own contribution to the video at 1:18.

A (short) desktop video of me at work. I created this for my Fiverr account but thought it may be worth sharing :)

For this sketch I was using Corel Painter 2017 on an iMac. The brush I used was the Real 2B Pencil. I varied the size of the brush occasionally but none of the other settings. For the most part I was using the pre-defined palette of colours on the left.
