Frozen Fan Art

I'm one of those really annoying people, I like to finish one project before moving onto a new one. With all the movies that have been released over the holidays I knew I had to finish this piece of Anna from Frozen fan art before moving on to a new one. Completed on Wacom Cintiq and Adobe Photoshop CS3 and CS6 (yes it was time to upgrade).

Here is the work in progress:

Redbubble Shop

Decided it was time to look for a more artist friendly site than Etsy. Etsy seems to be great for craft, but as an artist I was still stuck with the cost and hassle of organising printing and the prohibitive cost of printing my work on products other than paper print.

Had a look around at the different sites available and settled on redbubble, an Australian site that is based upon artists making money from royalties of the sale of a wider variety of products that display artwork. The range of products is a plus from iphone covers to cushions and bags and the pricing seems reasonable- in particular for paper printed products such as prints and stickers. Not sure whether this will be long term, but it is a good way to keep myself focused on my artwork whilst being busy at my day job.

Will keep you all posted on how things are going. To check out my website click here. Below are a sample of my artwork available on various products, there are a heap more on my redbubble shop.

Guardians of the Galaxy - Nebula Fan Art

I am loving portraiture at the moment and rather than just concentrating on 'ordinary' faces, what better way to practice tonal difference and use of colour than to draw an alien? Nebula is a character from Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy.

Maleficent Fan Art

Been a tough few weeks where real life has interrupted work on my art. Thankfully we seem to be resuming normal transmission so I've finished off a portrait that I had been working on last month.

I was inspired by the new film, Maleficent. I was worried that Angelina Jolie (never a fan) would ruin my all time favourite villain (yep i loved Maleficent before it was cool)- but the movie was fantastic and lots of fun. Jolie's portrayal was over the top but thoroughly entertaining and authentic.

Sketch_Dailies Retweet

Sketch_Dailies retweet from week 17. I'm really happy with this one because it's not a character mash up or spoof based on someone else's work, it was an original character design. Yay.

Sketch_Dailies Week 18

This is my Sketch_Dailies submissions from 2 weeks ago. I had technical difficulties during that week with Photoshop so I ended up with only 3 pieces for the week. Urgh I hate it when you're on a roll and then you hit a bump and it throws off your momentum. I've been on holidays for a couple of weeks and here I am today blogging these Sketch_Dailies and keen to get back into the rhythm of submitting each day. The theme for this week was villains:

The Joker


Headless Horseman
