One Skal page in One Day. Arhghghg.

I've been kind of busy this week, so Skal had to be put aside, but today I decided to sit down and just linework/paint the entire page. ... In one sitting.

Sorry in advance for the terrible photo quality of the progress pictures. They were taken with my mobile phone camera :P
The two last pictures are proper scans though.

So! BEGIN.

On site quick sketching: Bath Cats and Dogs Home.

Here are some sketches from the dog shelter. As you'll notice by the quality, they're not particularly brilliant, but having a dog sit still for you to sketch it is... easier said than done :P

I did get some treats to feed them from one of the carers (thank you!).


Amy the husky cross (I think). Very docile and quiet in her kennel. Only managed to get her nose before she moved to the back of her room.


Hah :D Rory the terrier sitting outside on a tyre.


Jimmy the staffie was actually the dog who sat still the longest for me. What a sweetie!
And below him are the ears of Luther.


Oops. This one was done later, not at site. But anyway, it's Sandy (Sandie?). She was so playful!


Oh, and this is... A bunny. As you can see. :P


A badly sketched Shadow. She moved so much :D

RPG book illustration: Train under attack. Progress.

Hoping to get this image done today, but I just need to nip out to get some omnomnoms now..!

Coffee shop sketching with Rich!

Whoops. Forgot to scan this little doodle that was made during Rich's visit.



Done at the coffee shop called Jika Jika.
Sorry about the slightly demonic looking woman. Not sure what happened there.
