Various Men, and a Dragon

By in digital, heads, men, paintings, sketches

One of my big problems with digital was that the line was sort of more wiggly, and things would get away from me. I’m feeling more in control of it now, however, and it’s almost like drawing on paper for me, now. More work, however. Not as relaxing staring into the screen, and thinking about […]

Edmund Bertram

I stole the pattern for the background from my Dover Book of Ornament. Which was fun to do.

Gamer

By in Gouache, men, paintings, sketches, watercolour

Red paint and pencil, for some reason. I’ve been watching too many videogame review videos. Trying to figure out what kids like these days.

This is sort of a test, in that I’m trying to post something via photos I took with the iPad. Sadly, there are a few things I haven’t figured out, but this is good enough for the time being.

Grumpy Writer

By in digital, men, pencil, Portraits, sketches

And a lazy digital treatment. I’m learning more tricks, but am finding I get my best results when starting with a pencil drawing and scanning it in. I can draw with the stylus, but it takes a lot more time. The thing really doesn’t like obeying what your hand wants it to do. Maybe if […]

Neil Smith Doodle

By in black and white, brush pen, heads, men, sketches

For someone who draws as many faces as I do, I find it hard to hit a likeness. But I’m happy with this little face of author Neil Smith I doodled in the margin of the Esplanade Editions book catalog. That glossy paper is very comfortable to draw on with the pentel brush pen. Hope […]

Various Sketchbook Pages

By in color, heads, horses, men, pencil, sketches, watercolor, watercolour, women

Various items from the sketchbook. I’m trying to work out of my comfort zone. The last two are more like what I usually enjoy doing. I love horses. Worked at a horse farm for one summer. Trying here for more “frosty colours, rather than the warm tones I often use. I’ve got better ideas about […]

New Animation Studio

By in color, Coloured Pencils, heads, men, montreal, pencil, Portraits, self-promotion, sketches

Thrilled by the news that a new animation studio is opening up in Montreal (a side-effect, I think, of the low dollar making it more tempting for foreign operations to invest here. Not to mention the high number of talented artistic types in this city). In honour of that fact, I’ve done this amazing, highly-detailed […]

People and Backgrounds

By in color, digital, men, paintings

I’m pretty thrilled over the control I have of the stylus. Working on backgrounds and lighting now, as well as the people.

Sketches

By in ballpoint pen, black and white, color, Coloured Pencils, men, pen and ink, sketches, watercolour, women

Some new sketches. I’m always drawing, but not been putting everything up, even though I used to do that.
