Those of you who may know already I have been suffering from abdominal pain for the last month. Today I had a scan which eliminated gallstones or liver problems; everything fine apparently. So it's more or less a mystery for now :/
Yesterday and today I took some time off, was feeling mildly burnt out and cranky. Felt good to do nothing, so ofc I doodled. Little bit of practice R&R really, no pressure. Most of my colour work lately has started off greyscale then coloured over that to get the values right so decided to challenge myself and go straight in with colour. Turned out pretty well (and yes the self portrait is supposed to look cranky!)
Also in freelancery i've been working on various fun things and one, Dark Harvest: Legend of Frankenstein, was announced where I found out my work is being printed alongside the superfab Scott Purdy! http://www.scottpurdy.net/contact/Contact.html He's a bit good and a cool friend to have :) (which reminds me Scott, need to send you an email ;))
So things I suppose are good :) Changed my hair up a bit and lightened the ends ombre style just for giggles, it's almost Christmas so I can spend time with the folks and see the inlaws for Hogmanay in the highlands, with cocktails as per :) Andrew and I have decided not to get each other presents and instead save some cash for when we get a kitten for it's vets bits and bobs and general cat paraphernalia.
So if I don't post before then have a rocking Christmas and Hogmanay :D
Love Me xxx

Yes, long time no post. Lot has changed; now full-time freelance and struck with gallstones WOO! Talk about making life easy?
Day 13 of feeling like crap and resigned myself to the fact i'm gonna feel like shit regardless of what I do so i'm knuckling down. So far this afternoon i've got a commission finished and a folio piece done which I started AGES ago. But it's done now. All in all a productive afternoon apart from stabbing pains and having to make coffee by boiling a pan of water since the kettle assploded the other day. This causes fun when one remembers an hour later that there was a pan on the stove full of useful hot water.
So yes, also nuked the folio and doing new stuff for that inbetween work and gallbladder attacks.

Following a forum topic on linkedin and a challenge on cghub I thought i'd do a bit of practice. Here's some very loose horse sketches taken from ref photos. Need to study the anatomy in more depth then move onto some sketches from imagination. Dissapointed with some of them but we learn from our mistakes, one mistake being i'm not sketching nearly enough.

Hi watchers and new time viewers :)
Sorry for the disgusting lack of updates but I have been working like a mad thing AND moving house AND started a new fitness regime (woo!)
Got a little update for you guys, a nice little treat since Aunty Rowena hasn't visited in a while.
Here is a full page illy I did for Necromancer's upcoming release, Fane of the Fallen. Really proud of everything I produced for the project and everyone at Necro/Frog God have been superawesome to work with. Long may it continue!

Couldn't think of what to call this so just called it what I was listening to.
Been painting this on my livestream since about 10. My neck is killing me and has been for about a week, any suggestions?
Love how he's going now, need to make him whiter though... suggestions too?

Awesome day today, really love parts of this - others not so happy with but it's getting there! Don't know when I can work on it next as I am working the rest of the week - maybe if he's off climbing or something I might be able to attack it.
Available on my livestream

Well I am working on a birthday present for someone rather close to me, he might get it a bit late since things have been a bit topsy turvy lately.
In other news, I am now an inhouse illustrator for a greetings company - woohoo! Start of Furzday.
