Just a little something I did on the back of an old piece of publicity from work, a while ago that I've been using as a book mark. Thoughts, opinions and commissions taken for them, £5 plus p&p to any address in the UK, over seas will cost more.
So I'm working on something new at the moment based on the instructional guide of Steve Beaumont's how to draw Fantasy Art: Create Amazing Fantasy Characters.
After working on the first exercise for a few days I have decided to create an image that is a mix of sci-fi with fantasy art. So I hope you enjoy this piece of work that I am doing, this is the first WIP of the project.
The first image is a simple pencil line art.
The second image is a slightly more detailed line art of the image.
Ok so to begin with, sorry that I've not updated her that often with January being my last post, but when you have to use the bus to get internet access, and some idiot takes offence to your knee just touching the back of his seat when the bus stops taking it out your stuff was the main reason, but I have not been idle as i have taken the time to go back to basics and have been doing work old school.
All my recent work can be seen over in my deviant art account, so feel free to cheek it out, and let me know what you think. Thank-you.
As well as the mentioned nut-case on the bus, I have also had to move home again, but that is a long story and will not bore you with it.
It's finished my personal take on Fleet Station Vincennes from a story on fanfic.net, basically it is a space dock that is designed to serve the same purpose as Earth's space dock from Star Trek, as well as Babylon 5 from the series called Babylon 5, with a hint of starship troopers thrown in for good measure but for the Stargate universe. Personally I don't like how this has turned out but after spending the last 240 something hours on it, I feel t is done and that if i did any more to it I would spoil it.
Hay and Happy new year to any one that even looks at this.
So I hear you ask what do I have planed for the year that is 2013, well for starters I plan on actually finishing Book one of Battlefortress Archangel and farming it out to a friend, Jay's work over on Deviant Art, that is if he will convert it into a script for me ^^;.
Next I plan on doing something with an old project from High School, maybe turn it into a short motion comic, or as we animators say an 'animatic' as a showcase of both my drawing skills and my animation skills, while learning to use a 3D software package, might start small with 30 day trial of an example of maya (not mine), as my 3D skills are some what errrm.... rusty.
I also intend on learning how to colour stuff digitally using only Photoshop for creating a piece, which I will place in my Portfolio and place working image's on here for people to look at my progress.
If you have any tips, hints, shortcuts or suggestions to aid my progress please drop me a line as I can always use any friendly advice for assisting my style.
Well that's all the personal professional goals set for this year, now to tell you what I plan on a networking, well I plan on going to at least one London Comic Con, most probably the one in October and if I can fund it Bradford Animation Festival in November, Hopefully with examples of my work to show to the exhibitioners to get professional feedback on my work.
