Week 13 - The Climax - Gladiator

So again I have faaaailed! I didn't get around to starting this one in time, my apologies guys. I was supposed to be illustrating a bit at the end of Gladiator where Maximus is walking through fields to his wife and son in the afterlife, he's finally re-united with his family.

Week 13 - The Climax - Iron Man

Being the huge Fanboy I am this was one of the most awesome climax to a movie ever. Seeing the character just come to life in a way that no character ever could because no other character was ever truly based on an actor so closely. Not only was the movie a  great fun ride having this at the end was truly the icing on the cake. So here is my interpretation of the moment you see his face.

Here's the flat inked version
Here's some flat colour put on it just to emphasise the atmosphere.

Hope you guys like it.

Week 12 show and tell

Hello to all!

Wow we sure are getting lazy. =P
Im joking, I know you all are working super hard at awesome things.

I've been at Pete's then I travelled home today, so sorry about the late post!

I did this last minute for a contest on DA. I really wish I had more time to fix it and do it again.
Oh well I hope you like.
I had to use stock images of a panda, lights and a pie.

Done in watercolour and chalk, all on pete's dinner table =)

Week 12 - Show and Tell - Adventures in Character Design

This summer I have been exploding with ideas. From creepy little monsters to Superhero action. None of these ideas have been fleshed out much yet but the thing I see as my problem is I need good character design. That is not really a problem because that is something I want to work on anyway because it's fun for me. At the start of summer I found a group on Deviant Art called 'Design A Character'. They do challenges revolving on designing a character. So this week I decided to get in some practice designing without killing my ideas (as I tried doing some designs and being unhappy with almost every line I put down). So I did the prop design challenge. The challenge was to design a prop then design a character that would use that prop, the challenge specified a chair.

I designed my chair.

From this design I then created a character who would use this chair.

The character design went a bit wonky when I drew it but I am happy with the amount of character I got into the design. Hope you like it.

Week 12- Show & Tell - SEEKER

Hey guys!

Dave and Ellen, I'm very sorry for not submitting for your challenges. Hope you're all well and enjoying your Summers. I've had a weird several weeks of not drawing much, laaaame!

This week I'm going to begin some work on a project I have an idea for that I may take on in a module this year, it's called 'Seeker'. I will tell more soonio.

Take care guys =)

Week 12 - Show and Tell

Hey guys,

I thought I'd switch it up this week. Instead of the usual brief we have a different type of task. Show us all something you have been working on.

Basically write a blog post on this blog about a drawing you have yet to post online. Be it a competition entry, a character design or even just a thumbnail. Show us what you've been up to. I'm really looking forward to see what everyone posts.

Have a good week.

Week 10 - Messy Baker


My picture has to be the least pin-upy. lol
I wanted to start playing with expressions, not the best but still pleased with it =)
I thought I'd mix it up a little with a more cartoony look to it then my other drawings.
Gosh its super wonky! I didn't have my lovely photoshop to fix it. =( 

Hope you like it!

p.s Pete's scanner is super poop! My poor image, I can't wait to get back to uni, where the real scanners are.
