Feb. 29th 2012

Finished the Ocicat coloured pencil drawing today.

I’m liking the coloursoft pencils a lot for pet portrait work. I’m considering using them for my other work too, though I’ve never been much of a fan of them.

I’ve been trying out Derwent Coloursoft pencils for this portrait. Preferring them so far over my usual Inktense pencils for pet portrait work.

I got a lot of sketches and gesture drawings of this particular dog, which I’ll probably upload at some point. I’m considering either making a separate gallery for sketches, or dotting the images around the site.

I’m considering writing up some tutorials of some description. Not sure just what exactly yet, but it’s something to think about.

Tabby Cat ACEO

Feb. 1st 2012

Here’s a quick little ACEO I started last night and finished earlier today:


I should have more of the site completed in the coming days. I’m losing a couple of hours working time each night due to the arrival of my new TV which has enabled me to adventure in Skyrim once more. Maybe I can learn to draw with my feet…
