Speedy's and studies

Some random speed paints. Start with blobs and see what they become...

I have been listening to a history of the USA so this guy seemed a good one to study. Frederick Douglas, abolitionist during the American civil war.

Some sketches

These are some sketches for a story I have been working on for years... on and often off that is. I am beginning to explore the characters now, instead of just the world itself.

Bits and bobs

Here are a few more bits and pieces I have been busy with in the last while. Som old, some new.

This is a composite of a ton of paintings done on my Nintendo DS in 'colors' (
Its a great learning tool as there is no undo... and its just simple brushes and thumbnail size.

This was a study of a picture I took of my sisters man. I just loved the thoughtful look.

I figured it was about time I painted a guy in armour. Just one of those things that has to happen in digital art...

First time for everything

Wow... after a long time thinking about blogging and whether I should give it a try, I have finally decided to actually get off my butt and post something. I will try use this blog as a way of expressing some random thoughts on art, painting, drawing and I guess life too, though where the boundary lies between these i have yet to figure out.

Anyway, I am just going to post some studies and recent sketches to start with.
