I’ve been trying a few classical studies lately to brush up on my Photoshop blending.

Here’s a section of Jacques-Louis David’s "Napoleon Crossing the Alps". Leaving it at this stage because it was taking longer than I’d hoped for just a study.

Lunch crunch! ~50min paint of a lil’ Japanese shrine. Reference was taken from a friend’s latest facebook snaps.

In addition to my last post, I’d set up a time lapse of one of the pieces being drawn onto the wall, so check it out!

A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of putting up a joint exhibition at a local bar in Coventry! Instead of hanging pieces, I went straight in and drew onto the walls, creating three pieces between 4-6’ in height. AHH.

Haven’t posted anything in a while, so here’s a chirpy House Sparrow I drew on a couple lunch breaks, with accompanying process .gif!

Stones are super fun.

Testing out the Pentel Brush Marker I bought this weekend. This thing is just superb.

Finished! …Sort of.

I’d have liked to finish off the entire pose, but this wasn’t something I’d considered when drawing up the rough sketch. Oh well!

Nightcrawler is awwwweeeessoooommmmeeee.

UPDATE: Now with accompanying process gif!
