Golden


Bit of an experimental thing here. I tried to layer a few textures over the top of this, but they ended up majorly sapping the colour. I guess this image is just about finding some-one nice and everything being great. Love is crap in real life though, so don't do it.

Never too young to smoke.


So, here's my "finished" image for the music wall project. As I mentioned in the previous post, the dimensions were given to us the wrong way round so many of us had to re-jig things in order for it to work. (It was no-one's fault, just a misunderstanding.) I jigged mine around last night but got it wrong again, somehow...
I'm good like that.

I had to put my name and contact malarky on there somewhere but I didn't have space at the bottom, so I decided to put them down the sides instead. Not ideal, but I don't think I'd have finished in time if I had to redraw things again-again. It looks okay right? I think so, a bit.

I'm really excited about this! It's going to be great to see some awesome art from the participants of this mini project chilling out in the open for all to see.
I can't wait to see what everyone else has come up with.

Bye for now.

Samson.

Ghouls!

This image is a doozie! It took ages today to colour it because it's actually about 3 meters tall/wide! It's for some art/wall thing that is supposed to promote street preforming or busking. I figured I'd post it now because there was a slight hiccup with the sizing.

We were given the measurements for our images, but they never told us which was height and which was width. Mine was supposed to be 2305 x 2690, so I like many of the other people taking part went with width then height, which to be honest I thought everyone in the world did. Apparently not though! So I think everyone's images are too tall. Such a pain.

I'm going to add a bit more to each side of the image then paste it all together. No big deal, just a bit of a stress.

I can't wait to see this thing up on a wall in all it's majestic glory. Super excited.
Also, I think this drawing might be the best thing I've done for a while. Cool.

Bye.

Unsure...


Here's the inked up version of the piece below. It took me far too long to redraw this, which has to be a bad thing right? I'm starting to doubt whether I want this thing to be huge and seen by loads of people. Perhaps if I sleep on it and come back to it with fresh, sparkling eyes tomorrow, I'll be more into it. At the moment I'm not.

When you came my paint was still wet...


Here's a rough draft of a piece that is going to be massive. In size, probably not popularity.
Inspired by Superchunk. I'll probably put a Superchunk poster in the corner of the proper one too.

Cycle


Here's an image I was commissioned to do by the Charnwood County Council. It was a bit of a rush given the short turn around they wanted, but it was real fun to draw! I didn't realize that I could draw bikes to an okay standard. Here's hoping I can get more commissions up in here.

Inksword


Here's an unused piece that was going to be used as my front page, before I made the Knight shouting "ENTER!" I think it's still a pretty cool image, but from a front page stand point I thought there would be too much going on. All I want you to do is see a dope little image and click enter, which is why I picked the other one. I might colour this up at some point though!
