I'm renaming this post because all the spambots were abnormally attracted to it!

After all the photo-based stuff I'd done recently, I wanted to play around a bit, so this little sketch came out. I don't know how anyone works non-digitally... there's so many colour corrections, changes and tweaks here! Artists who mix their colours and just whack them on in bold strokes really amaze me :)

South of the Border...

This is a little illustration inspired by a book I read recently, South of the Border, West of the Sun. I did a few book-based illustrations a while back but the idea got waylaid pretty quick. Maybe I'll get back into it...

Saw this photo in a magazine and liked the way the sun was glowing throughout the image. My version is very saturated, a bit too much, but I didn't quite manage to rein it in without the whole thing become boring/normal again.

Digipaints and so on...

Some more digital sketches. Skintones still suck! But I feel gradually more comfortable getting going with a painting, so while improvement is slow it is happening.

Acrylic sketches

Working with a few junky canvases to practice more painting - the texture is just residue built up from a previous experiment, and gets in the way a bit, but they're just practices so no big deal.

A few more digipaints. Pretty quick, focusing on colour choices still, mainly...
