Here is some of the artstuff I’ve done recently
I’ve just heard that my Bearfight image has been accepted! I’m going to have an illustration in a book! Very exciting.
I heard through the grapevine about a book being produced by the Banner Year Press called ‘Bearfight‘. Essentially a collection of illustrations from artists depicting Bears Fighting. They were asking for a general call from artists, and so I felt I should submit my own bearfight! The images had to be greyscale, but I figured I’d work my image in colour, then work on the tones until they worked in both colour, and black and white. I’ve just submitted my design to Bearfight HQ, hopefully it makes it into the book! That would be awesome. And here is my fight! (Both Colour and Greyscale) Enjoy :
Here is a picture of an owl dancing to jazz played by a mouse.
The Owldanceman is going to have a place on a special project I’m working on. There will be a number of illustrations on it, and hopefully I’ll be able to show you it all! But maybe not, you never know with these things.
I am learning lots and lots from this watercolouring. What I am learning most is that this is mega fun. I’m slowely getting the hang of the brushes, and figuring out what sort of style works best for me. I’ve done two more since the other night. One that I’m not going to show because it’s pretty awful, but this one – I think is my new favourite ( Yeah, okay, she looks a bit like ET, but that will learn me for not sketching out the design first, and just painting. Enjoy!
Here are some sketches from the last few days to keep you all entertained.
