Back from the Dead
It's been the longest time since I've done this thing. I barely remember HOW to do this thing. You know, words. You do sort-of ask yourself "Why bother?" A lot of the blogs I used to follow now seem like empty vessels for advertisers, or forced-positive scr...

Cabin Fever & February Art Dump!
Ahoy! My jaw is finally beginning to look more human and less Mr. Incredible, so this is what I currently look like  (excuse shitty quality and crazy expressions): So I thought, as I've had some time away from work and more time to do some painting, I'd sha...

Rhinos, Birthdays and Surgery, Oh My!
W'ello there. It has been a while, has it not? It's a rule that if you admit that you're doing well with blogging in the post, that will then be your last post for at least a month. You get cocky and then life happens! Life meaning life not interesting enou...

W'ello!

I don't know if any of you have seen the video for Elastic Heart by Sia, but I bloody loved it and had this weird urge to paint Maddie (the young dancer). I've also been super ill today so needed something to distract me :) Experimenting a bit more with lighting!

Critiques are of course always welcome as I'm always looking to improve!

I was very ill today, so I painted a self-portrait. Unfortunately I've been staring at it too long to know if it still looks like me, but it was fun and I found some new Photoshop Brushes which are super cool for painting skin :) Contemplated straightening my hair for the photo because straggly curly hair is quite hard to paint.

Braces and Pretty Faces
Hello! Doing rather well, aren't I? Clearly this is some sort of new-year-buzz that I'm still riding, similar to that gym membership you pay for in January and forget to cancel until April. First update, and I don't think I've written about this before, but...

A quick speedpaint for Sketch Dailies! If any of you guys haven't already heard of Sketch Dailies, go follow them on Twitter, they suggest a new art prompt every day (I will say they operate on American time which means if you're in the UK you don't get the prompt until about 6pm haha)  - I think it's a great idea to inspire people to get drawing even if they're not feeling like it. Also, they retweet their favourites which means you can meet/chat with other artists and find loads of awesome art to gawk at :D

Art Dump: 2014
Well, Hello! So this is a great big pile of some of the things I created last year, and failed to blog about. So what better way to present them than dumping them all at once into one post so no one has to do any complicated clicking. As you can see I went ...

Oops!
Long time no see. Haha. Aha. ha... I HAVE REASONS. Genuinely. Hear me out! So the last you heard from me, I was diving head-first into the wild world of VFX, and learning from my wonderful tutors at Escape Studios, who I cannot thank enough. I would also li...

Haven't posted in here before, but thought I'd share a little 30 minute sketch I painted today while I had some free time, providing digital art is allowed? haha. Trying to get into the swing of doing little sketches here and there to keep the artyness going!
