Merlin's Hut

Here's some more design work for my portfolio project of a Polynesian re-imagining of The Sword in the Stone. I'm really much more of a character designer but I'm trying to develop my skills in other areas. The bottom image was done a few weeks before the final image (top) I wasn't happy with the relatively flat composition so I went back to doing a few thumbnails with more dynamic camera angles. I moved the hut back into the edge of the jungle to make it more integrated with the environment and also used a bolder technique which I prefer to the original image. Overall I'm much happier with the final piece!

The Ice Gator

I love scrolling through the Fan Art Friday artwork that fills my Twitter timeline each week and decided, this week, I should give it a go. Now, I know it's Monday! The sketch was done on Friday and can be found over at my Twitter. It's always fun to draw well loved and known characters and I'm a big fan of Blizzard Beach, out in Disney World Florida. The weather in London has finally brightened up over the last few weeks (it was actually snowing last weekend)! Warm and sunny weather makes me long to be lounging in a water park and I think the only character who might understand the changeable UK weather would be the Ice Gator, who lost his slopes and snow capped peaks when Florida's first ski resort melted into Blizzard Beach.

Goth Girl

A quick sketch of a striking girl I was stood next to on the underground yesterday, scanned in and coloured digitally. I love coming across unique looking individuals, they're so much fun to draw!

This started of as a warm up sketch that I developed a little more. Consciously trying to push the shapes of my characters more.
