Here is some stuff I have been working on this week, a figure drawing in graphite on illustration board, I am currently trying to build up a bit of a portfolio of both concept design work and traditional work, and seeing I havent done much digital concept stuff, im working on producing some character sheets. So there is a work in progress of a character sheet, all in different stages of development. Our class assignment this week is to do a full illustration, I decided to to a battle scene :) It has been alot of fun so far, the challenge will be to keep it loose, and not make it look to rigid. I think I will go with the color scheme in the top right. enjoy

sketchbook update

 A small sketchbook update for you guys. I went and drew my mate scott while he tattooed on the weekend which was alot of fun, seeing the whole process and set up. I painted in watered down gouache, all in a small moleskin, one is just a sketchbook and the other was a landscape watercolour book. The gouache worked alot better in the watercolour pad as you can see. Some head studies that I have done in the coffee shop and the life model portrait from last week, which was about 2 hours. The head studies are about 5 - 10 minutes done in ball point pen :)

The assignment last week was to design a steam punk hero, gladiator brute, or a witch doctor villain... or any of these combined. Here are the thumbnails and character paints for my steampunk hero's. I worked on some others which ill upload a little later.

Figure Painting

Took a figure painting class over the summer with Zimou Tan, which was alot of fun, and I felt like I learned alot. First time I have really sat down and painted the model from life. The smaller oil studies are 11 x 14 canvas board and the 4 figure composition is 32 x 46 inches. Enjoy!
