Hedgehog Sketch.

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.

Traditional Style Tattoo

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.

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.

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 Konst√•knigs 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.

Digital Paintings

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.
