It will never happen


I spent a good two weeks on this one, until I decided to abandon it, I could not get the detail I wanted into the hands, them being too small, and this was a sign, if I could not detail hands, there was no way I could get a decent face going on, with out it looking cartoonish. So I've painted over the whole thing, maybe I'll draw it up in colour pencil one day.

ZELDA

I love fan art and  I thought I'd do another to go with the 25th anniversary, it the biggest colour pencil drawing I've ever done, and at a size A2 it was a pain to scan with my scanner only capable of scanning A4, so you know I glued it all together on photoshop but some how they were not in sync and here and there it would just not line up!

neck

I've quit on this one, it was not going the way I wanted it to, so I've aborted. But it still looks ok so I've put it up anyway.

She Ra

"She Ra" prismacolor pencil on black paper A3.
I'll make this my last kitten related drawing for a while.

heart


At this point in time, I'm having trouble at not drawing kittens, I blame the internet and LOLcats and the Nyan Cat aka Pop Tart Cat

Combustion

Combustion, atomic butterfly.
It goes any side up with rocket like butterflies exploding, or plunging into the water. It was funny with the waves as either way up they look like waves, when I stared this drawing I wanted the waves to appear upside down, but optically the inside of the wave became the outside so I just went with it.

kittens!

Yes kittens, after drawing the cat in the airplane, I thought I'd jam a bunch of them behind a pinup girl. And I've been dying to draw a pinup girl for a while. But it did not (once again) turn out as I'd hoped, I wanted her lie on a bed of kittens,but...the kittens started to look distressed, and this was not the out come I was after, a woman "squashing" a pile of kittens, just a nice soft and cute bed of them.

new ocean

I drew this mostly to do the water, which I can never get quite right, but it's my best so far, often my goes at water are a giant mess which I abandon quickly there after.

There's no background again, I was going to have the face cloud like and have other clouds floating around, but it didn't work out and made the face a bit puffy and retarded. And I got the out line all neat at the base of the water pool and I wanted to keep it that way.

As usual it's prismacolor pencil on black paper A4

cutewars

And I think it has ended before it even began with this idea of cutewars, which was just cute animals in planes shooting each other. The ducklings I tried were too creepy. The idea came to me at work, but starting as someone in a rowboat rowing across the skies, then pirates, then kitten and duckling pirates smoking cigars and having eye patches, then the ducklings and fighter planes, set out to kill each other, not unlike Frenzal Rhomb Guns Don't Kill Ducklings (Ducklings Kill Ducklings). 


To think it took a week, with rough drawings and sketches to get this far.

boobs

A work in progress, A3 in size. I am almost done and look forward to it being finished, sadly halfway through this drawing I've had ideas for other drawings to do, and now just want to get this out of the road.

WetKiss

Prismacolor pencil on A4 black paper.
I just had to get that bubbling spit out of my system.

Erotic Horror Murder Mystery3

I tell you what, I'd love to create book covers for horror novels. Sometimes I just make them up anyways. This is the third one I've done so far, well a drawing that looks like it could be a cover to a novel.

It is the first prismacolor drawing that I have done on A3 paper.

second wip gif


I guess that'll do, I made the gif a lot quicker this time.

I'm kind of happy with the out come of the drawing over all. I did have low expectations and thought I may even quit and not complete the drawing. It was very much "why am I doing this?"

But when it came to doing the spit and bubbles I was more enthused.

Thats the only reason I drew this, for the spit and bubbles...

wip gif


I spent a week on this one, scanning it each time I changed pencils or had a break, so I could make a progress/animated gif. I hadn't made a gif in along time, so long in fact that I've changed photoshops and every thing was different and foreign to me. Sadly it seemed like I spent more time putting the gif together than drawing it, well it took like 4 hours of rediscovering photoshop before I knew what I was doing again.

Hopefully the next one I make will not jump all over the place and flash so much.

just another drawing

Just another drawing, but inspired by the drawings of Marco Mazzoni, like "Goneril" 2011, you can find some of his work here , my drawing looks nothing like his, it was only influenced by his work.

ok

Here's the sign I'm working on, it's almost finished,
 I've just got to finish this one, and  then do two more

and this is my studio.
Since you asked Jay.

sign writing

I don't have much to report at the moment, because I've come across some sign writing for a shoe store my neighbours own. But I must thank mathematics and the principles of similar shapes I learned in year 7, though it did take me awhile to remember. So at the moment I'm just a human photocopier.

The dark side of "The Little Mermaid"

"The Little Ursula" graphite on paper A4
Sadly I saw The Little Mermaid when it came out in cinemas, but I've always wondered what was it about Ursula that made her so bad, being a witch, hating King Triton, I often fantasize about a prequel to The Little Mermaid all about Ursula and how she came to be, but you know with an R rating with blood and breasts.

squid mouth

"The Pink Bow"
It's not the first squid mouth I've done, but it is the first with the tentacles in this way, just straight down, usually they are more "alive" flailing all over the place, but i thought I'd let them rest this time, and I think it looks a lot more natural.

It seems like all I do are portraits.
I've got to do a few more like this one, but it's cold and wet in the studio. I'm going to get back into it when the sun shows up again.

For a long time I thought bigger was better, but when it comes to transporting them, it can get a bit pricey, and from the buyers perspective, sometimes you don't have the wall space.

I haven't done anything over a metre square in about a year, and I don't know if I will this year, unless by request.
I would like to do something epic, something you can get lost in, I've done a few drafts but it ends up looking like my very old stuff, I'll keep throwing ideas at the drawing board until something sticks.

I have a few ideas already lined up to be painted, and I have to fight the urge to scratch them just to go off and find this epic work, if I did that I'd have like seventeen incomplete paintings rotting in the shed. The next idea after the one I'm doing now is a girl having her hair dried by a jet engine like hairdryer in a hair dryer salon in the 1980s, hopefully it comes out ok, and does not become an abomination.

Erotic horror

H. P. Lovecraft and Brian Lumley have been a strong influence in my work over the years.


I do like the idea of sexy monsters, I've gone on about it before.


This drawing is just graphite on paper A4. Titled "Demonic Nympho Dom."

60x75cm acrylic paint airbrushed onto canvas, I'm not crazy about stencils, I like to paint freestyle.

I was going for a high school princess with the study of the frog in biography with cheap links such as the frog not just being Kermit but a prince, Egyptian crown with the Cobra and the Vulture and the plague of frogs and a blue bird landing on the shoulder to give that Disney princess feel.

I spent a bit of time on this one, not just painting but getting the idea out onto paper.

I'm not unhappy with the result, but I'm not in love with it.

"Masks", reversed work in progress


 So this is pretty much what I've done this week, the drool strings didn't work to well for me, better luck next time, eh?
I also had to drag out the second (middle) face so it wouldn't overlap and cover the nipple.

they come in threes


Often when I get an idea for a piece, it is hard to shake the idea after it is completed, so I end up doing two or three more similar drawings or paintings. Sometimes the ideas can linger for years.

So these are the Three witches, and I am trying my best not to another for awhile.

faces




I like to draw the female face, mostly because I like to look at them, you can stare at a face for hours, which I do while drawing them. The final result isn't too bad either.

Done in prismacolor pencil on black paper, A4.
