Here's a lighting experiment for Uni.
Used my Arelith character for it. :P



And a rather low quality jpg to show closeup. I love watercolour <3

Progress on some Pages from BnM!

None of them are finished and one of them is missing an entire panel, but this should sort of give you an idea what I've been working on.

Have three other pages that I'm currently painting and can't show.

Working my flabby little behind off!

I've got about.. 7 paintings on the go at the same time, all strapped down to their own boards, so I can't scan them, but here's a render of a random fantasy mage during my breaktime.

ARGH!

I STILL can't do scenery. Must practice more and more and more.

Here's the progress of a commission. I really dislike the background and feel a bit embarrassed. :/




aaaand, here's a part of a page for Butterflies and Moths! Lots of stuff that is going to be added. Hopefully it's less of a vagina.

Commission.

Argh! Why does this look COMPLETELY different on the University screens compared to the one at home?

It had lots of colour and stuff, but now when I look at it again, it just looks really flat.

I'M ALIVE. I PROMISE.

Zomg, hi!

Sorry about the silent blog. I've only JUST been able to get back to work at Uni after a forced break when examiners came in to have a look.

As well as doing two paintings of Venice (need to take photos...!), I am also doing two commissioned pieces of fantasy characters. Started painting them today, so it's still early days.





It's strange to actually draw character with full on scenes behind them. Hrm. Believe it or not, I'm really not used to it yet, and I'm supposed to be painting a whole graphic novel ;D

Here's a photo of the other painting. Still have a loooot of work to do..



Hope I dont mess it up.

Also, been sending off 6 roughs of the graphic novel pages and receiving feedback these past two days.

Here's an example of a rough:



PERSPECTIVE ARHGHG.

Sorry it's a bit lacking in... proper paintings here. I will be taking photos and scanning as soon as I get some stuff done :P

Coffee shop render.

Whee. Hasn't really been my weekend, but here's a more 'proper' rendering of a previous sketch.

I only just noticed a shadow making one eye of the middle character look wonky XD Oh well!

Doodles while painting.

Both venice paintings are currently strapped to their respective MDF boards, so here are some sketches done on the side while they've been drying.





Slight anatomy fail, but I was corrected afterwards, so learned from it!

Come alive, come alive, come alive, come alive~

Excuse the Foo Fighters reference.

Blog is soon back in action again. The external examiner will most likely be coming in on Monday, so after that I should be right back on track again.

Hard to see, but these two are the clean linework of scenes in Venice before painting started.





And here's a pencil render of my Arelith character.
Rendering takes time and gives me motionsickness :D



You may also have noticed the horrid death of my selfportraits. I think it goes without saying that Dissertation and end of term marking just killed it. :P

Dissertation hell.

I'm having quite possibly the worst time since starting the degree. Hence why this blog is quiet.

It should be fixed by tomorrow.

Meanwhile, have a pondering Lynn.
