melbourne morning

This is just a rough painting I did while procrastinating the other week. It was the view I got my first morning waking up in Melbourne, I definitely didn't do it justice though, sorry Melbourne!

speed painting, human planet

I did this speed painting a few weeks ago of a scene from the human planet trailer. For anyone that doesn't know it's a very recent BBC documentary (came out in the UK in January). If you haven't seen it already, check out the trailer here. Looks amazing!

quick painting

this is just a painting I did yesterday when I had some spare time, it's pretty rough and could definitely use more work, especially the hair, but I didnt want to spend long on it so made myself stop after a certain amount of time, even though my perfectionist self is screaming to fix up all the crappy areas (so all of it really). it turned out looking a lot like my little sister, which wasnt at all intentional.

This is my last portfolio piece and what could be more fun to draw for it than decaying flesh, exposed brains and maggots?

Fishing Village 2

So this is my 2nd illustration of the same place in a different mood, the 1st was meant to be lively and this one dark and decayed.

Fishing Village 1

Sorry if you've seen this one already (I had it up for a day last week then pulled it down to make some adjustments). I did 2 versions of the same place with different moods, so this is the first one and I'll post the other one soon. Most of my other work has been more character based so I feel like I learned HEAPS from doing this which is great. So hopefully my next ones will be faster and better!

WotC 1

At the moment I'm working on a portfolio for Wizards of the Coast and I'm very fortunate to have the incredible Warren Mahy helping me out with this. So I'll be posting these up over the next little while. This is a crop of one of my first images, it might still end up getting changed. I'm also extremely lucky to often get help and advice from the insanely talented Aaron Beck, who's always very generous with his time. So thanks Aaron and Warren, I really appreciate it!

Oil Painting

This is a portrait I did of my dad last summer. Bit of a brand image change for apple! ;)
