This is one of my favourites to date, I enjoyed painting. I guess as you can tell it's during a 'dark' phase! I love to paint in monotone colour, it's quite a challenge to get the shade and light just right. The crow was taken from a photo but the background blacked out, I think the Crows look of curiosity is more than enough for this painting it needed no more details in the background.
I always tried to paint quite life like but in the end my style and abilities dictate that all my paintings have a sense of cartoon about them, I actually don't mind this. This is a painting I started doing of my old cat Manga, I tend to start paintings and get half way and then can leave them anything up to a couple of years! If they are commissioned then of course they are finished quite fast.
This is actually a half of one painting, the two parts together make it some how seem obscene but I like this bit on it's own. I have a love for anatomy and body tissues, I was always fascinated by the worlds that were there when magnified... I still am.
Pen on cartridge paper. I did this quite a long time ago but always liked it... found it again recently. This was in the days before photo shop when you just needed to be good at attention to detail.. not bad for free-hand.
I basically use this as an online storage for myself to see progress of work, to store work etc. I decided recently maybe it's time to blog and share what I do. I do commissions, most of my work on here is for sale so feel free to comment or ask anything about it.
