With all this VALIANT artwork and my rekindling of the project happening, I thought I’d reopen the facebook VALIANT page. It’s full of old artwork, ideas, animations and tutorials etc.
feel free to pop over and hit ‘like’ if you like it.
See you there?
This one’s a tonal sketch for an upcoming painting…

I’m enjoying working with watercolour at the moment, but finding scanning/taking working pics increasingly frustrating. With this one, I scanned the original art in and am finishing it off digitally. I’m not a fan of the digital ‘look’, all that slick, shiny stuff doesn’t do it for me personally. It’s always my goal to have my art, whether trad. or digital, have something of an organic look about it.
here I’m adding the line work in Sketchbook Pro. Great program, very intuitive…

been working on more Finn MacNiall stuff for my VALIANT project. Here’s Finn, on the run…
And I wanted to try something out, using watercolours, looking for a style that also involves some linework. (apologies for the scan)

I’ve been dusting off my old Finn MacNiall drawing skills (character from my VALIANT project). Had a chat with the writer, hopefully, we’ll be onto this soon. It’s been too far too long…

Finished this one.
I’ve also uploaded the before and after shot. You can see that I literally ‘drew’ with the ink. Lots of fun, a little scary, but worth the challenge…
(apologies for the watermark, some people can’t be trusted)
