Singing lady

I spent too long on this and its still not finished. I am trying to figure out a balance between sketchiness and a painterly quality (if you know what I mean) so I don't spend a long time tweaking but I get to a quality I am happy with. Interesting how the sketch changes when I start to paint.

Me on my red bike

I'll freely admit I was (still am) a geek and as a kid I used to bike it over to my mates with my PlayStation in my school bag so we could play multiplayer via link cable. There was no xbox live in those days! Good times!

I'm still learning a great deal about painting in photoshop and rushed it towards the end. The original drawing was done quickly so alot of the perspective is off and the character design could be better, but I feel I’m getting faster putting colour down and creating better shapes.

Incidentally, the red bike was stolen in the end. I loved that bike. I guess this is homage to that :)

Sun Game Art

A bit of free lance work for 3 days. It was a commission for The Sun newspaper with a little Scottish Sun bus driving through the streets of Paris. As I had such a short time to complete all the work the buildings were a simple tile that was repeated. Then objects placed on top.

The whole flash game was placed inside a newspaper. Like the game was played within a newspaper panel.

Random guy

Just a random piece of illustrator Art. I recently got back from an epic trip to Canada and really need to get more art done in my spare time.
