Odd Animals part 2

I posted about these illustrations a good while ago.  I had started a side project of doing a series of unusual animals, one for each letter of the alphabet,  I finally finished that project, after many re-imaginings, here is the final result.

Space Pets

On my Etsy shop I have a small series of drawings with animals in space suits, recently I was contacted to do a commission of a couple of recuse animals in space suits for a charity.  The illustrations went through a few changes so I thought it would be fun to post the different versions.

Unfortunately I don't think the images were used in the end, it was however valuable experience in working to a brief and developing different ideas.

 I was asked if they could be depicted on the moon
Some of the earlier sketches had a simplified look, which I quite liked so I also produced an alternative version.

Protrait Drawing

I have been going to some untutored portrait drawing sessions at my local bar,  Here are a few the pictures.

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'.

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
