Sketchbooks and Studies

Here are my sketchbooks and journals from the last year and a half. Its been really great being able to get into my art.

I am still developing my art style, however here are some recent studies I’ve done that are getting closer to what I want.

I’ve also still been using Corel Painter as well despite all of the other great digital art programs I’ve found. I still love the brushes in Painter, they still have no equal in terms of blending. I took a chance yesterday and updated to Corel Painter 2016 while it was on special offer because I heard it has better layer support than previous versions. Thankfully it does! I can now use layer techniques in Painter with my custom brushes rather than just painting on one layer. I am really happy :-)

Here is a little study and style test I made in Corel Painter 12 of a scene in Blade Runner earlier this year.
