Small update




Probably just about done with this one, don't wanna take it too far. Based on Ashley Wood's Tomorrow King characters.

Look mom, no linework! WIP



Since the big board I started yesterday turned into a massive disaster, I decided give the oils a break for a while and went digital for some practice. This time decided to go straight into painting without a sketch first (usually I sketch it out, scan and then paint over that). No sketches (or even layers) this time, dived right in! Still work in progress.

Some anatomy studies





















I've been busy lately... Using a "30 second drawing" method to build muscle memory. Works quite well, I'd say.

Pencil linework for Jumping Man

The pencil sketch before it was painted.

Made a start on oil today, first time ever. Enjoying traditional media!
