Recently, I completed my Digital Painting class with Dhamindra Jeevan at Syn Studio. I received a certificate for the course and left with this new & awesome portfolio piece! I am so happy with how much my lighting has improved and all the new techniques I learned for drawing digitally.

Now to design some human characters, so maybe one day a video game company believes I can do this?

Here is also the same beach girl portrait, but with colour added. I've also added all these to my STORE!, so check it out under BUY. I should really stay on top of my news - but hey guys, follow me on twitter so you can get instant updates on any deals in my store. You just missed the FREE SHIPPING weekend, sorry.

Let's start with re-posting about my life drawings I inked & cleaned up. I wrote about this already, but I had a server problem and the news post disappeared. So to recap quickly: These are life drawings I did at Syn Studio during a life drawing workshop. I challenged myself by using watercolours and trying to work as fast as possible. I've never done that before in the 5 or so years I've been doing life drawing, and it was definitely difficult. See the 2013 Traditional Mediums album for more.

Here's probably my first solid piece of digital art for this year! I'm actually quite happy with how this turned out and didn't really expect to have anything more than a sketch from doing a portrait value study. For this image, I used a photograph provided on Reddit Gets Drawn, where people upload photos in hope an artists draws a portrait from them.

As part of the process, I recorded a speedpaint video and actively updated my livestream. Here is the video and I hope to make more of these in future. Please share!

I added some artwork I did as part of a personal comic project I've been working on for over a year now. I say that regretfully, because I wish I could move onto Episode 2, but I picked an extremely time-consuming process. For this project, I treat (almost) every panel as its own separate artwork that can stand as an original. I draw it large scale and import it into the comic layout later. The good thing about this is that I am actively creating new art, while creating a project with a greater scope. The bad - it's a lot of work and takes forever.

If you visit this album you should see 3 new works.

This particular piece is responsible for ruining my curtains...
