Girl Head Doodle

Pootling around in Photoshop.  Turned out not too bad.  Still find it hard to draw directly with Wacom tablet although you can endlessly tweak and change and adapt lines which is good.  This has a certain inky quality.

Yet another less than successful picture.  Photoshop again, God alone knows how long!  I must have started at about 23.30ish and it is now 1.41 so not exactly a speed painting.  In my defense it did start out quite differently with a woman in a sort of battle suit holding some scribble that was suppose to be a gun.  Crapper than this - if that is possible!  Well at least the pose in this one, while not being anatomically accurate, is at least a bit more dynamic than the original.  Anyway hey ho anther late night another crap picture!  So the world turns.  I was thinking of renaming my blog, "Dom Can Draw ... but only just!"  Perhaps that is a little negative.

Not so speedy speed painting.  Done in Photoshop - lots of scribbling and flipping and layering to get this image - then bits of green light added.  Not sure what it is  - some sort of city.  Not really sure where to go with it - about 1.5 hrs or so.

New visual done for work

This is a quickish visual I've just done for work.  It is to give the locations dept an idea of what we are looking for.  Done in painter - no ref- over 2 nights.  About 4 hours work.  I'm trying to do as may drawings visuals for work as possible but time is always tight.

Getting Back Into It

Well I haven't posted anything since last year, and that was in the summer. So I have decided to get back into it and try and post things regularly.  This is a speed paint, about 40- 45 mins in Painter.  It is not great but it is a start.  I've got werewolves on the brain at the moment and am working on a storyboard to send out and try and get some storyboarding work.  I might post some frames from that soon.

I haven't done alot of speed painting, and I'm not really happy with this one. Still it is all practice.  The sky is the worst part.  I couldn't decide whether it was sunset or sunrise.  It is supposed to be a werewolf entering a cave.  I had this image of the creature being strongly backlit by the sun or very bright sky, with the edges of the body slightly blurred,  It sort of works in places.
