Terrible Twins

And now for something different c.c This was created using pen and ink and is A4 size IRL.

'Terrible Twins' is an illustration for a Doujin (fan-comic) project I'm working on. The two black haired boys are Yahiko (closest) and Sanosuke Uzumaki. The girl and the boy right in the back are Toshiko and Okita Subaku.

You may or may not have heard of the Japanese Manga 'Naruto' - this doujin is set in the Naruto universe and features the offspring of the canon characters.

This image took so long to do - but I'm very pleased with it! For a start I managed a fully detailed background, featuring architecture - something I have problems doing.

I'm in the middle of digitally colouring this at the moment.

This was commissioned by an American client - her terms were 'a typical English setting, depicting Autumn' - so I took my friend Becca on a walk and made her pose for me at the abandoned Rail Station on our favorite walk.

This was created using pen and ink and took far too many hours to complete.

The worst part was when I went back to the area to do the last sketchwork, I discovered that the Local Council had fenced off the Station and cut down the trees! I had to complete the images from some reference photographs taken on a previous visit.


Rear Window

This was painted during the autumn months of 2007 and is the view from my office window.
Inspiring view, eh?

I was working on the outline for my business plan at the time - and halfway through, my brain basically shut down from all the numeracy - so I shut down Word and opened Photoshop and simply painted for the next four hours.

This is the result. I'm thinking of doing a Print run.


Here we go then!

Welp - thought I may as well do this XD

I'm a Freelance Artist, so it was only a matter of time before I created a Blog specifically for my art.

I hope you enjoy!
