Digital painting practice! She ain't perfect but I'm just gonna leave it as it is. It's Amelia all beat up, oh dear...

I've fallen in love with the Cintiqs in uni - I need one in my life!! This is a character concept for Little John in my interpretation of Robin Hood - an idea that I'm not following to completion but trying to create designs for. He's channeling Princess Mononoke, I only realized the similarities once I'd finished :( may go back and redesign if I have time.

Wow I need to update this blog!! A lot of the stuff I've been doing since my last post has been paperwork and quite rough sketches so there's not a lot to put here...I'm pretty happy with how this came out though! This is a sketch for Luis, a friend on my MA course. It's a design idea for a character in his animation, she was really fun to draw :)

For the illustration friday topic "stripes". Has the lion painted himself to sneak up on the zebra, or is he just a vegetarian desperate to find somewhere to belong?
Not sure about the colours - I'm on my laptop so the screen's dodgy. Bear with me, sorry if it's way out!

Some concept work based on a task we were set in uni. Got out my pen and ink for the first time in ages, feels so much better than a stylus! (Edit:Also fits this weeks illustration friday too, nice.)
A sure-fire way to seduce an elephant - feed it good coffee! Not sure I'd like to give an elephant caffeine though....

I forgot about these, smoooth... Top is a character design for a friend's film, about a boy with hiccups. Ruth Taylor is the director, she's pretty epic and I'll update when I know more details.
Below is my entry for Channel 4's Street Summer, got so few votes it's embarrassing! Guess I just wasn't street enough... The theme I chose was the spoken word, and the title is "Firebreather" - also kind of based on the Celtic symbol of the snake eating it's own tail. Is she nom-noming on the dragon's tail, or is the dragon pulling itself from within her like a beautiful, fearsome poem? Whatever floats your boat I guess.
Both of these were sort of experiments with texture and line, using scanned linework. I kinda like them both :)
Just started on my MA course at the ATRiUM in Cardiff, so here's a quick update. Haven't really got going yet, so not much to see here.... Here are my "little curators" from the museum story brief. Wish I'd sorted out the proportions and sheeet, oh dear.

Phew, almost there!
Here are some portraits of the museum staff - from left to right Moira Plym, Norman Nancarrow, Chudleigh Pomeroy, Dr Arkengarth (as far as I know, he isn't given a first name in the books so I named him Philo) and Thaddeus Valentine. I forgot to give them their guild marks but I'm not sure if I'll add them - I'm fairly happy with them the way they are now, and I don't want to mess them up in a way I can't fix. They are painted on mdf plaques with frames around them which are gonna have gold leaf - I'll put up photos when they're up for the exhibition.
