The more art i do, the more pieces i work on from start to finish, the more i realise the vital vital importance of the drawing, the accuracy and the communication. I scraped almost a days work this week after i realised though nicely rendered, i had jumped in without really considering the strength of the image and it's value in communication. I then re did the piece from a new composition, much quicker, and already much better. This has manifested itself in me going back to basics, more cubes, more skulls, and looking at my good old trusty bridgman book, but coming to it this time with a lot more understanding.
here are some train doodles.
Spent the weekend in brighton visiting an old friend and playing dnd, imagination very much full, but no pages to show :)
Hello there! spring is in the air, the trees are budding, it's all looking up.
So i did another clay bust.
I went OUTSIDE and did some water colouring, trying to learn it so i can do some more on the move colour work. I used to be very much a gauche person, I might try going back to it, but i tend to paint very heavily with it, watercolour forces me to slow down and consider layering, which carries over too PS, convenient! This is tiny, A6 ish. I'll try and do some more.
Oh and a rocket pack.
Which i did because i designed this rubbish, left the rocket pack as a place holder while i researched on, i've got the 9 iterations about somewhere... You guys seem to like that sorta thing.
Sorrryyy, i seem to be unable to keep track of days during a four day weekend, this day just devolved into DAY BEFORE WORK WEEK IS BLOG UPDATE DAY. Which, as my head has just realised, is Monday, blaahh, balls.
So this week i did muchly work, and i also did 35 presentable character designs in two days, they were just line sketches, but thats kinda the most creative period, steeped in costume designs and thoughts about appropriate equipment, awesomely good fun. But i did leave me a little foofly for work on the way home, anyway, you'll have to put up with this.
Same old shit -
Spot the tony blair!! Oh and some interiors, and the worlds messiest paladin sketch.
And inspired by mister baines, i did some sketches based on some busts, good fun, much harder than i thought. aaarrghh.
