Pagodas and a cat


Here are a few studies of pagoda types and Asian architecture. Lots more work to do with this subject but it’s really interesting looking at different architecture types.

I did this cat study a short while ago when I was trying out some different techniques in Photoshop to create texture.

I have some more sketches to show, but I’ll post them later on in the week.

Sketchbook Studies


I put some of my recent sketches from various sketchbooks together. These are some random ideas I’ve been working on.

I also found some observation studies of acorn tops in pencil  I did last year.

These are some fine liner pen studies I did of birds over a few days in January for some pen drawing practice. I scanned them into my computer and put a shade behind them in Photoshop to show the silhouette’s better.

Hello 2017


I finished off some small illustrations I’ve been working on and thought I may as well post them here before the year was out.

I have plans to keep learning new skills, improve on existing ones and work on my portfolio. I am going to work on, prune and refine my existing portfolio in the coming year.

I think I’ve made progress this year in finding techniques and processes that work better for my creation of Illustrations and I’m excited to learn how to animate in Anime Studio Pro and maybe learn a bit of 3D in Blender as well.
