Just more toned paper sketches. Used ProCreate’s Lightbursh to get that gleaming metallic gold.
A concept painting of a cottage- sty in the woods, inhabited by one great pig and her five little piglets.
I did this one very absently, dabbing and playing in Procreate on my iPad until I arrived at something I was reasonably pleased with. I’ve always loved the sea, and old fashioned medieval ships- not the lurid modern day cruise liners that are destroying the planet. The idea of something vast and monstrous slumbering at […]
I did these back in 2013, back in my second year of university. I can only tell the rough timeline because of the room in the flat I was renting at the time- it had a wallpaper pattern like jail cell bars all over it, which wasn’t the most uplifting visual to be surrounded by […]
Just some anatomy sketches. I love Michael Hampton’s technique. They seem to stick in my head more than the other instructors’, for some reason.

This week I tried out a new app: Clip Studio Paint on my iPad Pro, and used it entirely. This is the first time in months and months that I’ve begun a sketch digitally, but this is a very nice app to use. I used the desktop version of it a few years ago, but […]
Just as the title says; sketches done for the classes on figure drawing and animal drawing that I’m taking. It’s interesting to learn armature; I didn’t realize just how much easier it would make understanding form.
I’ll be starting two new online courses this week; Animal Drawing and Analytical Figure Drawing from CGMA. I’ve taken their Storyboarding course previously, and found it really helpful- there’s just nothing like having a real (well, alright, virtual) classroom environment and homework and feedback to keep you going when you don’t quite know which way […]
When I was younger, there was only one way of dealing with creative blocks- rage, tear up the page, cry a bit, and then stop trying altogether for days, weeks, sometimes months at a stretch until I fell into flow and picked back up. But one of the better things about growing up and growing […]
Illustrations from the appendices of the fantasy story and universe I’ve been dabbling in for years now.
