Sad Till Man

Just a doodle I did on Flash while I was watching Breaking Bad. The poor guy is serving people who are buying a load of food and drink for a party...and he's not invited.

Update - I just realised my doodle is missing one arm...


Don't mess with us mitchells, eh?

It's a sad, sad day as.....I lost all my photoshop brushes I made! I happily opened up Photoshop and everything was gone. I didn't save them either.... Cheers Adobe -_-


I've been trying to think of some ideas for a blog header, was originally gonna do a self portrait but might be scrapping that. I did start some designs though of my massive head :P Gonna adapt one of them and attempt to draw the full body for more lovely anatomy practice!

Anatomy Practice

Spent my Sunday practicing some anatomy. I really want to get better at this, need to try and do a bit everyday, even if it's just 10 minutes or so. Been looking at a load of tutorials on deviantart which I've found really helpful. I also came across a concept artist called Kevin Chen who creates figurative drawings from a range of basic shapes. His stuff is amazing...if only I could draw like that from my mind without reference material. If only...

Digital Paint Practice

I've been working on this funny picture of my cousin for ages and only started getting somewhere near the end. I made some more of my own brushes a few days ago and altered them on photoshop - I quite like some of them as they create a more texturised look when painting. I really wish I had them in the beginning. I guess it's all a learning process and I know what I need to do next time.

Horse Sketches

I had an interview the other day for a Go Wales placement for an illustrator job. The company wanted to make an e-learning program for the equestrian market to test coach riders before they go on to do their exam. I was told to bring some sketches of horses to the interview. I wish I had more time to do these as I only had a day as I was going to Reading Festival! Would have been a bit sad to miss Foo Fighters to sketch in my tent. I'm not sure if I'll get the placement, really didn't know what to expect for the interview. They were telling me their ideas and asking me directly how I would illustrate or animate them and my mind just went blank. It's like when customers ask me for the time in work - I even have a watch on - I look at it and....nothing.
I'm just writing rubbish now. Here are some horses..
