The Matrix Sketches

I absolutely loved the Matrix movies when they came out, so just for fun, and to get a little portrait practice in I did a couple of illustrations of characters from the films (pics taken on my phone so the quality is a bit off).


Agent Smith

More Dark Souls Art

As always I have a large backlog of my own ideas for pictures that I am always working through, however very often as a warm up sketch I will indulge in a little fan art. This is one such picture, I started it as a quick sketch before getting into the ongoing projects but ended up inking it, I had considered putting some colour on there also but decided I had become distracted enough.

New Etsy items coming soon

A few new items coming soon to my Etsy shop, as soon as I can get to the printers.

More robotic animals, its just something I love to draw, I am calling this short series 'Future Pets'.

Robot mice

Robot Budgies

and finally my favourite, robot goldfish.

King Arthur Illustrations

This has been a personal project that I have been working on, perhaps for a little too long.  Based on the legend of King Arthur, using the composition from playing cards too offset opposing characters from the myth.

Kings - Arthur and Lancelot

Queens - Guinevere and Morgan Le Fay

Jacks - Mordred and Galahad

Joker - Merlin

Ace - Lady of the Lake

Day off Doodle

I had a little free time recently so produced this little illustration, trying to bring together my recent inking and painting practice.

More Inking Practice

A couple of recent inky illustrations.

Steam punk jetpack badger.  This was a character I came up with a good while back, unfortunately the first illustration didn't work out as I had hoped, so as an exercise I though another attempt was in order.

I have been trying to ink more work lately and push my self past the pencil sketching stage, hoping to include paint in this also.

Here is a quick sketch of Yoda too, just for fun.

More Painting Practice

I have been trying to brush up on my painting of late.  To that end I signed up for a couple of art classes courtesy of the local councils adult education program.

The first was an oil painting class which resulted in a few still lives, this was the one I spent the most time on.  A bit rough and unfinished but I was quite pleased with it, especially as I haven't used oils since my college days.

The other class was a weekend one using acrylics and this was the result.

Still a long road ahead of me to get my painting skills near to where I want them to be, but progress is being made (I think?)
