Disaster - Not really

You know there are times when you set out to do something and you end up with something else. This is exactly what has happened to my current piece of work. I started out with an idea but you know I just have not achieved it. I wanted it for a competition but it is just not right so instead of submitting it regardless I have decided to set it aside. I was reading an article today written by someone I consider a friend, she is a fellow artist who has some seriously fantastic talent. She said she burns anything that is no good, well I not going to burn it, but I have learnt a fair bit from it. Here is the last photo and lets not talk of it again!

Current Work

Well this is what I have been working on the last few nights. Tonight I have been a bit all over the place in regard to which part of Yuki's face I feel like doing, so the piece looks a bit funny at the moment but it will all come together in the end.

A little bit of colour

This is not a medium that I use alot but I thought I would post if up as this was very much a piece I created tonight because I felt compelled to, it is kind of a weird feeling when your brain suddenly starts ticking over and really wants to get something done. It did not turn out as well as I hoped, but that is ok, as each piece I create teaches and shows me something new.

Little Sketches for Fun

So I have been working on some larger stuff on and off for the past few days but did not feel like posting any of it at the moment as it is mostly in it's weird stages with an eye done here and a bit of an ear there, so I thought I would post a few little fun sketches I did today. I love doing these little guys as they are relaxing, fast and there is zero pressure to get them right, sometimes they are great and sometimes they make it to the completely unrecognisable pile.

I hope to update you guys more with these, it will be interesting to see what they look like after a year or so of doodling!

So here they are

How Time Flies

Wow time has really flown by since the last time I posted. Lots of things have been happening, not many of them art related unfortunately, but things have started to settle down again so I can get back into my art again. I am still working on Jess as well as a few other scribblings such as the birds listed below.

For the next few weeks though I am working on a new project that I am getting ready for a special competition, it is a bit late to start but I have been planning and planning, so hopefully with a few late nights I can get it done.
