Persistent Crush

A design for the #CharacterDesignChallenge which takes place on facebook every month. I have always meant to join in and there are some really inspiring designs on there, so having a go with my first entry during the theme of 'Olympian Gods'. Cupid has always been my favourite, and I imagine him as that niggling, persistent crush we feel - perhaps for someone we shouldn't, or out of reach, or someone who has hurt us - but it presses us on against our lack of confidence, to pursue them. He just keeps going!

Happy winter!

More art! I finally began adding to my 'Seasons' series of Mother Nature and Pan - do you recall my piece, 'Sleep', that showed Mother Nature dying in winter and Pan staying at her side to die with her? It recently sold at a charity auction to raise money for animals in need. This new piece (above) is called 'Spring' and shows the newly born Mother Nature meeting Pan for the first time. They will repeat this every year for all time. The other piece is more of my centaurs, which I may ink later as well. Happy winter!

Commissions

Many more commissions recently; it's been wonderful to have them flooding in. Haven't had so much time to work on my own stuff, but, with a cintiq recently purchased that's soon to change, and I have new storyboard's ready to launch into animation!

More commissions!

Beware those beasties! And, more friendly beasties. Been doing a lot of commissions lately but actually managed to finish some of my own work too. This monster, Boron, is from my current novel and is one of the main villains; a mean boy, but interesting character nonetheless with a complicated desire for revenge. The com is for a friend of himself and someone he cares for deeply. Along with a few other characters too :)

Acylic

Back to acrylic painting, along with the newfound Spring sunshine. I haven't used Acrylic in what seems like forever so it was great to break out a new pack again; I always find acrylic so freeing! Painted a mermaid why not - titled 'The sad mermaid'.

Anthro Art

A lot of anthropomorphic art recently, specifically commissions as well and enjoying it a lot! Gives me a chance to try some new techniques I'm working on. I'm pleased to say they are very popular! It may not look like many uploads, but my goodness I have filled about three sketchbooks this year already. I may also be fortunate enough to be shadowing some fantastic studios in Ireland soon - I'm a bit nervous of course, but wondering where this opportunity could lead :)

Month of Love

Lots more art this month of love - some goblins sharing a kiss, some fanart (from myself and my teammates shirt site Prismic Designs) featuring Frozen crossed over with My Little Pony, and a centaur family on a merry stroll. Happy February everyone! No matter what the popular opinion, I do love Valentine's day. Share love all year around of course, but not least for your significant other, your mother, your brother, your dog, your family. Spread the love and remind them you care :)

Happy New Year! More centaurs this year I think, I do love drawing them. I find it great practise to do both human and animal anatomy (that and my centaur project on my MA left me with irreversible obsession with anatomy on centaurs). happy 2015 :)
