Its funny how whenever I get really frustrated with my illustration I start drawing depressed old men… It’s never angry ponies or cheap, unreliable washing machines (stupid cheap, unreliable washing machines!).
But yeah, the next best thing to repeatedly stabbing my sketchbook is drawing these guys over and over.
Have had some serious writers (bloggers…?) block over the last few days, probably because I’m wasting all my free time playing Spore, and as such I can’t seem to find anything online that jumps out at me to post.
Instead I thought I might put up this little image I put together in photoshop a while ago… I like to use it when I fiddle with servers etc.
Been playing around with colour in some of my sketches over the last few days and particularly liked this big metal guy.
I’m not sure exactly what his intent is but he is certainly in for the giant robot cuddly toy treatment… Got in mind to create some destructible cuddly scenery for him too in case he does turn out to be sinister…
Been playing around with some tattoo illustration and my lovely Victoria was kind enough to volunteer her back so that i could have a play around with some, very non-permanent, Henna.Painting with a brush was an economical, yet tricky technique which saved about half a tube of Henna and mainly allowed for more accurate markings. It did however take a lot longer than it might have and it was harder to keep a consistent colour and width to the lines.
I’m certainly glad it isn’t permanent, the fishes is a little squat and the fins didnt really translate very well but for a first attempt I’m rather proud, Vic is even wearing low backed tops to show it off…
