This one is much better. Spent a while getting the frame right before I worked into it, paid off. Need to do that more and really understand the form before I detail.

Not happy with this at all, but oh well. Trying to do some more studies from references. Totally didn't plan this one out enough before I started detailing.

Couple of character sketches, the second one was a sketch commission.

Here's a little fuzzy raptor. I've just noticed the amount the feathers go down the leg differs on each... Ops.

I've had this idea for a turtle/reef themed disk'o coaster for a while, but when I really started to think about it I wasn't so sure if it would be that visually interesting. I just started sketching over some disk'o scale plans and ended up with this Hawaiian beach theme. I think the vehicle would still be a turtle shell.

This is was an old, unused drawing for a project. But I liked it. So I reworked it into a kind of 80s aesthetic.

I've put it on shirts over at TeePublic because I really like how it turned out!

Leg day! Realised I really struggle with legs after attempting and failing to include a characters legs recently in a scribble. Time to practise!

An owl for Superb Owl Sunday, of course. Procreate sketch on the iPad, I love the ink bleed pen.

Finished this today after spending most of yesterday working on it. I started with the background on this one because I know from experience that I rush in excited to do the fun bits and the backgrounds end up suffering and the characters not feeling like they belong. It paid off I think.

Just a rock, from a photo I took at Crystal Palace. Again, felt I needed some practise. Trying to get into the habit of daily observation studies, even if they're just quickies like these.

Some trees from observation, just references photos on Google search for trees. Felt I needed some practise for theming work.

I felt like I should experiment and practise with the various brush tools in Procreate for the iPad Pro. I'm actually not a huge fan of their smart functionality that aims to recreate real media with tilting, etc. It just feels wrong and hard to manipulate, because you don't have the feedback of a real brush, you can't see the shape of the brush against the page.

But I still wanted to practise, so here's a speedpaint of a tiger from late last night, drawn from photo reference using the oil paint brush.
