Merry Christmas! + Lots of landscapes

So although i said i wasn't gonna do a blog post on Christmas, i will anyway ;P Obviously aha. 
Anyway, Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all! I got a new Wacom Intuos 5 Pen & Touch for Christmas, which is awesome. It feels really nice and i'm looking forward to using it a whole lot! :)

As i've been doing lots of environments and landscapes recently i have been trying my hardest to incorporate people and figures within them but i just keep not getting it right! So i've been doing practices similar to these gesture drawings here every day and some landscapes and things that have failed (not put here) that involved people.

Some of my landscapes from this week, including a owl, which i want to send off to Blitz for their open day if i put a bit more work into and improve my lighting and stuff within it i really though i could be in with a chance! 

Anyway gotta go Christmas dinner is calling me! See you all next week!

This week has been very busy, working on multiple websites and even began working on an zombie based IOS game, which is awesome but i'm not gonna disclose that stuff yet! Very exciting!

I've done a ton of colour studies, all of these images were done straight into colour from photo references, i feel i'm getting better at perspective and knowing where objects are in space i still need to work on my colouring a whole lot because if compared to references the studies are definitely out a noticeable amount.

Next week i'll update on the Thursday due to Christmas and my birthday! (Boxing day) so check back then! I may do another post before then with some Christmas based shenanigans drawings :)

Portraits & Environments

Some nice portraits i did from their respective references, although i made Bear Grylls look way more manly with a rather square sharp jawline and the perspective on Mr Downey Jr. is rather off but still these were fun to do!

I want to improve my backgrounds and my use of colour within my paintings so gonna do a ton of these environment practices over the next 4 weeks in prep for the creation of my portfolio for the Blitz Open day.

Must Study More...

Not had a terrible amount of time for drawing this week had so much written work to deal with and I've seemed to had a bit of a block with portraits and stuff nothing seems to be working. Just need to focus and get back on it, I've done essays and all the stuff know just want to work on it! Here's just two digital paintings from this week, top one was done in black and white then coloured second one was drawn straight in colour, not a bad attempt, other than her head and hair being dodgy, and hands. Urgh!

See you next week! I'm sure there'll be lots more to show then!
