New PC, new monitor, new software... Angelina Jolie!

Upgraded my system just recently (it needed it) so now I have a decent size monitor and a quick PC to work on. Also got Autodesk Sketchbook Pro which is awesome - played with a trial for a while but finally took the plunge.

This is a piece I just did today using all those things; I need to work on my sketching technique as it's not great and I just don't do it enough - but this turned out OK. It was so much fun to do!

Another go...

That's much more like what I had in mind... I was trying to bend him the wrong way! The pose is a lot better I think...?

Muse - Matt Bellamy

A quick sketch of an idea for another painting. Found a cool reference photo I thought I could have some fun with. Might try and take this and exaggerate it a lot more and see what happens.

Here's a few recent gift caricatures I've done:

Pleased with the cricket team, a lot of work in that one!

Sketch for a BIG painting

Unashamedly inspired by (in no particular order) Kruger, Phil Hale and Jason Seiler. I hope I can make a decent fist of painting something roughly along these lines for real (as it were) :)

Billie Joe Armstrong

Sketch in preparation for a big acrylic painting which I want to start soon - which could be a lot of fun! This is of course the front man of Green Day - The Greatest Band In The World ;)
