Clive Owen Demo

Here we go again, loose transparent washes over a tight pencil drawing, building up the values bit by bit and finishing with a little opaque color for the final detail.

Oil Change

This is not my car, this is the car I drew whilst my car was getting a oil change, so now you know.

Peter Capaldi Demo

It's demo season again, always fun to do these, starting with loose transparent washes sand building the values step by step and finally using a opaque color for the finishing details.

Lady Of Note

Lady of note was what I was thinking when I drew this, i don't know why, it just came at me like that.

Subway Sketch

This was a real quick one, he didn't look much like waking up but he was gone before I'd even noticed.

Sunday Post

This is the second in the series of these drawing I'm doing for a client in England. I'm having fun here so long may the series last. I'm working on the finish at the moment so I'll post it at the end of the week.

Photoshop Challenge

I'm trying my hand at photoshop, I got to learn how to sort these things out computer wise, I've been forced to make several changes to paintings recently and phtoshop is the best way to go, I usually rely on having someone help me but I can't go on being that slow. Here is my first attempt at rendering the below drawing as a digital painting.

Mock Up

Since I missed yesterday, here is an extra post, this being the mock up with type. I always enjoy seeing these because the I'm always aware about leaving space for the type so the type always ties the image together.

Finished Painting

Here is the finished painting, fun or what. Where was I yesterday I here nobody asking, where were you is my response. Anyway. I'm back now so what out.

2 More Sketches

A couple more quick sketches as we are seeking a solution. It's not often that I make this many sketches but as I've often said, this is a very enjoyable part of the process. Throw out as many ideas as you can and see what sticks. I always try to give more than I'm asked for. I like drawing so why not.
