I know it has been a few weeks since my last post but I have been on holiday with my family and then organising my children’s bedrooms as we will redecorate them. Anyway, this morning I felt the need to draw something. So, with my tattoo portfolio in mind and my wife asking for a hedgehog I did a quick sketch to see how it would come out and here is the result.
OK, this is not my best effort, but I am trying lots of different things to build a portfolio to show tattoo artist’s hopping one is willing to give me an apprenticeship. This is my take on a classic style “Traditional”. I know it may not be exactly right but I am not a tattoo artist I just would like to be. Anyway, let me know what you think. Oh, if you have ideas for tattoos I would love to hear them and maybe I can try and design some. It would help me as it can be hard to come up with them by myself.
OK, so this is the same design as the first but as the title suggest it’s black and grey.
So recently I have been thinking of training as a tattoo artist. I have read you need to have a really good portfolio to show around when looking for an apprenticeship. So with that in mind I have started to do work more in line with tattoo designs. This one is my first effort.
I think I have a long way to go but this is not a bad start.
More of my stuff. 😀
Well it has been a few weeks and I have been busy, with what I have no idea but I do have a new painting to show you hope you like it.
So I don’t have much to say about this one, just did it quickly today as it was in my head. I got the steam punk idea from a competition for Mischief which is the software this was done with, well that’s it enjoy. 🙂
OK, well I got a newsletter from one of my drawing programs informing me of a competition to draw a character from one of my favourite books, so I decided to do Mort from the book of the same name by Terry Pratchett. Whilst I was doing this Terry Pratchett sadly died so this became an homage to one of my favourite authors.
I know it has been a few months since my last post but I have been busy with the up coming Osby Konståknigs club annual ice show. After a successful morning for my girls in a figure skating competition at the the local club, I found myself with a quiet afternoon so I decide to practice a little with Corel Painter 2015 (a birthday gift from my family). I am sure some of you may be aware I am currently without paid work, but I am trying to change this and am working to build my portfolio to send to art directors of game companies and studios begging for work as a concept artist or really any artistic position they believe I could do. So, with this in mind I started doodling and ended up with a painting I call Blue Demon. It’s not a very creative name I know and I apologize for that.
Well it’s time for a post. I have not been sure if I would post these as I am not too happy with them. They are only my second and third paintings done in Photoshop, so still learning. Anyway, I don’t have much to say about them just that they were an assignment I did not really get inspired by and I did not have as much time as I would have liked.
