DeviantART

December, 2013

I can see this site getting clogged up with these sketches, so I’ve started up a DeviantART page, where I’ll be putting all my non-commercial art work. Check it out and leave us a comment or two – I’d love to know what you reckon :)

After that last one, I’ve tried to work much quicker, and forcing myself to use bigger brushes, so I can’t worry too much about the details. Even though it’s pretty messy, I like it better I think.

More sketching with the Surface Pro. I actually don’t really like this one; I reckon I spent too much time on it, so it looks over-worked or something. I’ve been looking at guys like Wojtek Fus, who uses really economic brush strokes. Something to aim for.

I don’t really draw much at all, but with this new tablet I’m keen to start sketching much more and hopefully getting a bit more comfortable with it. I’ll try to keep putting them up as I do them so it’ll keep me motivated.

These are obviously done off fairly famous photographs, and I don’t own the rights to the images or use them for commercial work; they’re just practice sketches for fun!

By the way, if you’re wondering who some of my favourite illustrators are, check these guys out. Just awesome eh?

Surface Pro 2

I’ve just bought a Surface Pro 2 as my new travel computer and it’s pretty much the coolest thing in the world. Having a pressure sensitive tablet to draw on is absolutely next level and it’s a complete no-brainer to get one if you’re designer or artist. Sure, it’s a little crazy to set up, being a Windows computer, but once you’ve got it the way you like, it’ll blow the doors off anything. Why the world is not completely flipping its lid over these is a mystery to me :)
