My Stamp – Step 5

It’s near enough come to a halt for the moment while I go out job hunting over the spring/summer. With my birthday aproaching fast, I have that to think about too, so there have only been a couple of updates to this piece of artwork. Take a look for yourself:

Lovely bubbly chocolate, extra urban design on the main text and general inking of some sections of the picture and it’s looking a little more in-depth. I don’t want to fill in any object with colour, or ink a lot of the piece because I may feel that my ideas change later and I want to make sure I have added every possible detail I want to each part before I finish it off with ink. It’s a good tip for all of you aswell: if you feel something’s not finished yet, just leave it in pencil and ink the stuff you think is done. I have no idea what I’m going to do next on this work as I’m more focused on getting a job right now to support my wants and needs… Although, the sorts of stores i’m applying at do have themes and I can add those themes to my artwork. For example, I’m applying at a sports store, so I may aswell as some sporty elements to my artwork and I do enjoy excercise. Well there we have it, enjoy and see you next time.

My Stamp – Step 3

So far so good and quite some progress was made as I added extra details on existing objects and it definitely looks more awesome with each session.

More detail on the eraser shows that it’s been used so it’s more comfortable to look at and the bulging veins in the arms represent the often strenuous hard work that it takes to create art… Yet it flows through my blood naturally. It’s pleasing to know that having a night’s rest and coming back to the artwork provides a fresh and creative mind, which provided me with new ideas and extra details to add to the piece. I am happy with the work so far and the next step should prove to be quite “fruitful” indeed. Enjoy! 🙂

This is for sunday’s issue and the carry on from thursday small in terms of quality, but it is important to me as it is one I’m currently working on and shows a new idea where I will need to work on different skills with the pencil. Without further ado, here it is:

A peacock (obviously) to which I have drawn the outline and I made references to peacocks on google images to make sure I got the shape of the beak right. I think the next step is to re-draw the eyes and sketch them properly, then add some more detail on the feathers. As I said earlier, it is a WIP (Work-In-Progress) and I should like to thing it will look pretty awesome when it’s done. I just have to focus on 3 key aspects: beautifully detailed feathers, elegant beak and shiny eyes. Once I have those done and dusted, I should love to think I can draw peacocks better. As a side note, it is a tattoo design for one of my friends and I hope she gets it done 🙂 . See you next time.

Something else from my art collection, but this is part of my first comission. On a lovely (but cold) sunday evening, here’s what I’ve got for you.

This isn’t the full image, just the main focus of the image. One of my caricature practices and I must say that I’m getting quite skilled with this style. In comparisson to the picture I drew from, I would say it’s an acurate caricature (haha). The main feature that I focused on was the wrinkles around the eyes, the eyes themselves and the man’s hairstyle. I didn’t colour this and I don’t usually colour my works (unless required), mostly because I am more comfortable in the greyscale. Regardless, it’s one of my best cartoon drawings and I hope you agree. See you in a few days.
