As the title says, im working hard on developing my digital style and getting some kick ass images to put on my portfolio. So here are some of my favorite images that I've drawn in the past month that I'm most proud of.
Few! This feels weird, writing in my blog. I've been concentrating most of my efforts in my portfolio recently so my blog unfortunately has been suffering. But you don't want to hear me prattle on with my excuses do you?
So long it has been since my last post! So I must update, naturally.
So What have I been up to? Well, I took a short brake from art in general, had a few friends visit, went to some parties and weddings and generally took a load off. It was quite awesome. But now I have itching fingers and am diving right back in!
However my tablet had other ideas and conked out on me the other day randomly, so I am back to traditional until my new one arrives.
So without ado, first to present to you is my traditional miniature painting....
This is the first in a series of three that I am going to paint. All of them will be 'Kitchen' themed, so any foods and possibly crockery and such will be pictured.
When finished they will be available in my Etsy shop. And if you haven't already visited, please feel free to click on by and have a see whats in store. =P
If you are curious, here to the left are the paints that I used, and to the right is a reference photograph of what I was looking at.
And bellow are a few shots of the progress of the painting. ...
And for comparison the final piece.
...And I Painted!

So I saw an advert for 'Comics Unmasked' at The British Museum and I thought to myself, how can I resist going to see such an exhibition, especially when it is so close. So last week I booked my ticket and today I set off.
Overall I think it was a pretty cool exhibit! Very nice one so thank you British Museum. ᕙ(`▽´)ᕗ
A few of the pieces caught my eye, and I made a few sketches in the small amount of time that I had.
( Not the exhibits time limit, my own. (︺︹︺) )
A few of these sketches are below.

in the comic Batman: Arkham Asylum.
Here are a few more sketches that I did throughout the tour:
Another piece that caught my eye especially was the publication of the Victorian 'Penny Dreadful'. I knew nothing about this except that there has been a recent release of a series by this title, so to see this was like an explosion in my mind. Very awesome indeed.
If you dont know anything about either, let me help you out with that. Heres a link to the Penny Dreadful site, and a beautiful image of the cast is below.
Not only all of this, but I also found out later today that a local old pub, 'The Spaniards Inn' was also names after a highway robber that used to robb people that were comming out of London. Guess his name? Dick Turpin, Also the name of the main anti hero in Penny Dreadfull! So eventualy and hopefully sometime soon I will take a trip up there and get some sketches of the Inn and of 'Jack Straws Castle'.
AAANNND I got a huge haul! I couldn't resist. Granted, some bits were found but who can resist pens and comics? Not I.So bellow you will se the comic of Batman that I bought, going to have fun reading that one tonight. (˘‿˘ʃƪ) And I had to get a postcard, a little tradition with Musiums for me that I think everybody should invest in. A pick for my guitar, a leaf I found in one of the decorative display books. And other bits and pieces about the exhibit.
Just one of those days it seems. I thought I was being a little crazy with my outfit but obviously my day wasn't wacky enough. So on this particular day I decided that I was going to go out and do some nice watercolour sketches of some statues in the graveyard for my blog; seems simple enough.

And Last but not least this little lady. I'm not sure what I intended with this one, gentleness definitely. but also I think I just wanted to do a pretty lady. =p
