Bins…

I liked this drawing from a few months ago, thought I’d tighten things up with some scratchy line art…

Release…

3d_smlworking out ideas for a new painting. I made a series of paintings last year based on the same theme and enjoyed it so much I’m going to do more…

Many thanks to the very lovely

Into The Woods…

Really enjoying this stage I’m at with this project, my favourite part is the realisation, the ‘fleshing out’ of ideas, making the characters work, the environment, the mood… Exciting stuff!

Really enjoying this stuff right now and very happy with how they’re coming together. Here’s the latest one (that great big white area in the middle has been left for text btw)…

Of Mice and…

I haven’t drawn my little mouse ‘Finn MacNiall’, for a while, going to open up the box and see what happens- I need something to sink my teeth into and this little guy is currently squeeking up. More to follow…

Trying Out A New Technique…

ottersbythewater_newtechnique1_smlPencils are pencils, inks are inks, digital is…erm… digital. Trying a 100% digital approach to achieve a ‘traditional’. ‘Why?’ you may ask… Speed. plain and simple. I’m fond of drawing these Critters but they have to fit around other stuff I have on the go.  I also think this approach would also work for book illustrations, when speed is of the essence, time is money, etcetc…

Nuts

I knew there was a critter missing from this merry band. Was going through my reference photos this morning and saw my Squirrel folder. Will draw this character some more…

Nature Wins…

I’ve been thinking a lot about the way we humans have been treating each other, and this planet lately. I’ve been seeing this image in my mind for quite some time, thought I’d honour the way I feel about it all with this sketch, might paint it if Iget the opportunity…

Portal…

It was my birthday today, a strange sort of day as birthdays go… I went to bed early last night and had a series of visions that thankfully I made a note of. Here’s one of the images I saw:

Chickens…

chickens3_smlI’ve been drawing a LOT of birds lately. I recently had the good fortune to study and photograph some chickens, wonderful creatures, amazing to watch them in action and great fun to draw, love their body language and the challenge of finding the right ‘lines’.
