Merry Crimbo!!!

Yayyy its Christmas!!! I love this time of year! Not for the presents (though they are a great part of it), not for the huge amounts of grub (though they too are awesome), but for the time I get to chill out and unwind. The cosy resting hours in front of the TV watching awesome movies and playing video games until my eyes melt from their sockets. Here's to the general slow easy pace of life that we are allowed to indulge in at this time of year. Merry Crimbo!

Friday 21 November 2014

Woke up this morning with a desire to put some colour on some bits from the sketch book. Thought I would save it in stages to keep an eye on how it was progressing throughout the day. I could have worked on it for another few hours but sometimes you just have to step back and go with what ya got!

Holiday sketchings.

A sketchbook, a balcony onto the open sea and some free time. Just bliss :)

Fun day!!

Hooray, the storms stayed away and much fun was had at the Family fun day at French Weir Park. It was a sunny day of scribbling and monster making with the young'uns of Taunton town.

Friday 19 September 2014

The Bros snouting about amidst the market folk. More of a rough concept pic than a finished piece, just  trying to get a feel for the atmosphere of the place. If i get a chance I'd like to revisit it and double the amount of peeps milling about (I love a nice busy scene). The little Turtle dude pops up again, who is that mysterious shell back?  
A scamp from the sketchbook showing the setting for the Badger Bros battle with a winged beastie of Dragony proportions. I am aiming for an Arabian market type of setting, lots of dust and cloth and stuff.

Hand/paw studies.
Thought I would try for some strong colours on this one, nice and punchy.
One of my fave pics. Did this back in May at the Bristol Comic con, and have it has been floating around my desk ever since. Will try and add some colour at some point.

What kind of weirdo takes Fridays off work to sit on his arse painting Badgers!!? Ummmm, yeah that would be me, hehe. Well not just Badgers but they are a great subject matter for my friday painting practice. This one took a little while and is riddled with flaws but I kinda like it. One thing i am learning with regards painting is that I have an awful lot of bad pictures to produce before i start knocking out some good ones.
Tonal underpaintings of the Badger boys, really loving these guys. There is something so cool about the shape and silhoutte of an anthropomorphic Badger, there frame and stature is perfect for a barbarian/warrior kind of character. 

Then when I got back I thought I would work them up a bit and add some ink.

The first sketch of the boys. Done whilst on holiday in Palma earlier this year.
What's six feet tall, a crack shot with a pistol and speaks fluent french? Why tiz Pasqual the French-Canadian swashbuckling Otter of course!
Good ol' Fraz has returned to Monday night fun and brought with him this beauty of a beastie.

Saturday 12 July 2014

A couple of colour ups of a character created for a TMNT campaign. What started as a mutant fighter who stalked the land in search righting its many wrongs has slowly become a gang leader with a taste for arse kicking!

Friday 4 July 2014

Ahhhh, Friday. Tiz my day to scribble, stretch and create. Time to throw down colours and see what happens.

Bristol con 2014 scribs and dibs.

Had a great time scribblin and nattering with peeps at the Bristol con. As usual my penciling turned towards the more Turtley of subjects!

Robots in disguise!

Searching through some old drawing folders and found a few Animated series Transformers pencils i did a while back. Really good fun getting to play around with such cool characters and forms.

Another wierdo from the many Monday night adventures.

He's gold! He's a warrior! he's the golden warrior!!!

The Toad of Tao.

Not sure what this one was for, probbly just a bit of fun. A "Mr Vampire" meets "The animals of Farthing wood" kind of thing hehe.

You dirty rat!

Got the urge to sketch a Splinter this morning. Just a quickie.
