Option chosen: A commission for two characters with a simple background.
I remembered that I also have an instagram account (been lying dormant for a while) haha.

And lastly, Merry Christmas everyone!
Happy birthday and Easter! Inspired by the character Snowball. 2nd attempt at needle felting (using higher quality felt next time). The original expression looked too innocent so I crazified it 😛
Sketch Or Paint?
Week 3’s entry for 52 Project. I wanted to sketch and paint so I decided to do both.
Villainous Peter Pan
Gave myself a time limit of 30 minutes this time.
Peter Pan from a different childhood where he developed a survival instinct when he was forced to grow up.
One of my favourite anime, Fullmetal Alchemist. Have always wanted to draw this but didn’t get to it until now. Find out what is happening here in the finished piece that’s coming soon!
Guardian Of The Predators
First illustration done with my Intuos 5.
Even predators need a protector; they are part of the food chain and cycle of life.
Higher resolution available at my portfolio soon.
Speedpaint of Hercules. I miss watching 2D animations by Disney.
Trying out a different kind of painting style for the very first time; done in Photoshop. A comparison of many drawing styles coming up next.
The Lost Children of Athuriel
The illustration is completed! I will be testing out a different medium for the time being.
Jean Valjean Quick Sketch 1hr 16mins
A Les Miserables Jean Valjean quick sketch done in 1hr 16mins. I have not sketched with my trusty mechanical pencil for a while so this is good practice. I watched Les Miserables recently and I have to say, I have never cried so much in a movie as such before. Stunning performances, all of them. Just remember to bring tissue boxes with you when you want to watch it.
I went in the cinema not knowing what to expect; well I knew that Anne Hathaway’s going to be in it but she turned out to be a sidekick lol.
On a side note, my illustration’s still ongoing, stalled a bit but I will eventually finish it sooner or later!
Here’s a sneak preview of something I’m working on. It’s still pretty much a draft and a small part of the whole illustration. More to come!
