Not defunct, exactly

I said I was going to fix those buttons didn't I? That was nearly three months ago now. I just don't have time to update this thing any more! I need to find a way to automate this stuff.

In the mean time, here's some places you can see my new stuff:

Instagram
Tumblr
DeviantART

Need to update those buttons

Those ones, over there on the right. They used to match my header but they clearly don't any more. Will have to make new ones soon.

Caricatures 3

Dwayne Johnson/The Rock,Stone Cold Steve Austin, Ron Swanson, and Antoine Griezmann.
I don't know who Antoine is, other than a footballer; I just saw a goofy picture of him and thought I'd try drawing it. That's what started me off trying to do these caricatures.






Caricatures 2

Jeremy Corbyn, Diane Abbott, Theresa May and er.... Hugh Dennis







Caricatures 1

I've been doing a lot of caricatures and stuff lately, but completely forgetting to post anything on this blog.  So, here are some drawings of the (newest) Doctor Whos what I done.

Mermay Medusa

In may everyone on Instagram was doing this 'mermay' thing, where they'd post a mermaid drawing every day of the month.
Well, here is my one mermaid drawing that I did in the entire month!



Hunted

Here I wanted to practice drawing on Kei's Surface pro 3. I did the sketch and the inks on it, but by that point I was getting a bit fed up of how hot it was getting so I moved on to the Cintiq to colour it.
And as much as I love Destinty, this is oddly the first piece of fanart for it that I've ever completed.

Romeo

Don't think I posted this before either - a painting of my mam's ugly Chinese crested, Romeo



Molly

Here's a painting I did for my nan of her dog Molly. It's all acrylic on canvas and stuff!

Oops

It occurred to me that I hadn't posted anything on my blog for a long time, so I thought I'd log in and post some of the artwork I'd done lately. I was a little surprised when I signed in and saw a huge list of posts of my drawings already up on my other blog that I hadn't posted... Then remembered I had IFTTT set up to post all my Instagram photos to my blog automatically. Would work perfectly if not for the fact that all of the pics are too big and get cut in half :/
Anyway enough rambling, on with the posting!

Showreel 2016

Can't believe I forgot to post this... I managed to make a new showreel a few weeks ago and posted it everywhere but here.
So here you go!

New things

Aaaand once again I forgot completely about my blog. Oh well.

I recently decided to (finally) set up a Facebook page for my arts, seeing as that was the only remaining frontier upon which I had yet to spew my artistic endeavours. So you can go look at that if you want.

Otherwise I don't have much to say. Not made a whole lot of art lately, I've got one freelance project going on and around that I'm trying to brush up my various software skills (or in some cases relearn them).

Although I did do this sketch of Ser Robert Strong, to coincide with the end of the latest series of Game of Thrones. So there's that.

Forgotten

Wow. Wow.
I clean forgot about this place. I've been very busy since the last update. Had a baby (well that was more my partner's doing but still). Been working at Oysterworld. Been fiddling heavily with photography (more on that later). There's so much more I could say, but I'll leave you with this:

eChalk for the nom

When I came back to work at eChalk for a long term period, back in November 2013, the first thing I was set to work on was Chicken Coop Fractions; at the time it was being developed as a set of resources for the eChalk website and as an iPad suite of games.

This year, Chicken Coop Fractions was nominated for a BAFTA Games & Interactive Games Experience commendation. Which is nice! Last friday we went down to the Doctor Who experience thingammybob in Cardiff Bay for a nominee's party. That was nice too!

e2015

I really wish this wasn’t this first non-work thing I’d drawn in 2015. But there you go.

Batman: 75

batmaaaaaaaan

Ah good old Sketch Dailies, keeping me drawing when I’d otherwise be twirling my thumbs and staring at a blank page.

Batman recently turned 75, so that was the theme for that day.  A very fast, silly drawing in Flash. Done when I should have crawling into bed naturally.

Batgirl

 

batgirl

Another Sketch Dailies theme.  It was probably inspired by the new Batgirl series, with a new design by Babs Tarr and Cameron Stewart, so that’s the one I drew. Plus I like Bab’s work anyway, and this is one of the best Batgirl costumes there has been.

The Hound

Done for a Sketch Dailies theme a few weeks ago (“favourite Game of Thrones character”)

Luigidroid

Almost forgot about this!

Mario’s brother, in robot form. Complete with murderous Omega Beams (a tribute to both ridiculous comic characters and Mario Kart 8)

Mariobot




Decided to try one of the topics on @sketch_dailies.

The topic was Mario.
I don't know why he's a robot.

2013 Art Summary

2013_summary

A DeviantART summary of last year, just like the 2011 one!
A couple of things to mention here:
Yes, a lot of things I did last year were Design-a-Character challenges;
I also had ZERO deviations submitted to DeviantART in July and December (busy months?) so I used an Instagram photo of a batman drawing I did that month, and a screen grab of the Rocket Rooster game I did the artwork for shortly after starting at eChalk (you can see the game here but can only play a preview version without subscribing)
I would link to the original deviation that had the template for this meme, but it seems to have been taken down. i just had to rummage in my old PSDs to fine the 2011 one XD
One the whole, I think I did a little better than 2012, art wise. But just a little.

Amazing 3D Swivel Head illusion: Dewi the Dragon



I started working at eChalk in November last year, and recently we've been making these 3D paper illusions that appear to turn their head and follow you as you move. So, just in time for St. David's day, we've made the template for Dewi the Dragon available to download on the website. There's a full colour version, and a colour-free one that kids can download and colour in before assembling.



So once you've watched the video to see how it works, don't forget to print off and try one for yourself!

Gallery of Mo - Portrait #11

mo_portrait_13_08

This one was an anomaly! I set my portrait limit at 10, but when I went back on the website, for some reason more slots had opened and this guy snuck in. So I thought what the hell, let’s do it anyway!
