New Year Self Portrait

Well, as all can see, my advent drawings fell through spectacularly. Nobody saw that one coming I'll bet...

I've done a selfie for the new year, a bit of a call out to my friend Kat who does this every year as a way to gauge if there's been any major artistic improvements in the past year, as well as an experimentation with some digital painting techniques. Decided to draw it using only a mirror as reference so it probably isn't perfect... As is no doubt obvious, I got pretty bored half way through so it's unfinished. But I was pretty pleased with the undersketch anyway, so I just left it exposed...

Happy new year, kids. Hope it's braw.

Christmas Advent - Day 8

Still running late... Continuing the theme of oddly cropped caricatures of celebrities as Pokemon trainers, Dame Maggie Smith.

Christmas Advent - Day 7

I realise that perhaps not all of my followers like Pokemon, so my challenge may not be for them. But everyone likes Nicholas Cage, right? RIGHT? All will tremble before him, screaming "NO, NOT THE BEEDRILL, NO, NO, NOT THE BEEDRILL, AWEAWREFGSJBDF D:"

Christmas Advent - Day 5

The Hobbit is coming out soon, so I've been thinking about Ian McKellen even more than usual. I considered choosing a more wizardly Pokemon, but this pun was too good.

Christmas Advent - Day 4

I had initially thought that Jigglypuff would be a good Pokemon for Freddie Mercury, but then I remembered Avril Lavigne and it was too perfect. Then I researched what Avril Lavigne looked like and I realised she was probably too boring to effectively caricature. But I went and did it anyway.

This is still a day late (technically 2 days late now it's past midnight) but I have some other stuff on at the moment. I'll catch up at the weekend.

Christmas Advent - Day 3

I think we all know what Christian Bale's Pokémon would be...
