Finished this one

Yeah, so colours might are nowhere near perfect, but its a nice full page, and doesnt look too bad for me...

P.S. I have been using an acetate grid for referencing in a couple of images, thats why theyre more accurate than I could naturally pull off.

Some unrelated work

So, I still have yet to make a start on my project, but I have started an art book of haircut cut-outs... odd theme, I know, but theyre cheap magazines to buy, contain good portraiture photography and very interesting haircuts (and in some cases, costumes).

So this is what I have so far, I am just kind of ... doing whatever with each image. I apologise for the incorrect colours, I have been working at night without daylight bulbs, and have yet to sort out a colour chart for my copicsssss...

Book Cover commish

So, a while ago I agreed to do a book cover for a friend, so here is the final image and some in-process shots...

SO. Yeah. Turne out surprisingly well. The funny thing is the image will be printed about 4 inches tall by 6 inches wide, so most of the detail will be lost. Ah well, was a nice little challenge though. Total work load was probably 10-12 hours, in-photoshop work about 8 hours (lots of fiddly bits)

fooling around

So I sort of had this idea for a story. It draws on eastern elements such as the Chinese Zodiac, I wont bore you with the details, but here are a couple of character concepts. The Shogun look is due to a current interest in armour from that period in history, especially due to the Total War guys showing off some amazing stuff for Shogun 2. Anyway, just doodles really, moar later.
