I am in uni working on a big essay-type project. Three pages after my last save, my computer reboots. No warning. I'm just going to copy an image and put it into my paper and .. nothing. As I wonder what's going on, the start-up screen comes on.

I hate PCs. I hate them, I hate them.

That is all.

Character turnaround.

Soldier. A bit doodley.


Another turnaround - different background colour, no arm on the middle figure and an example of one of his weapons.

Character sheet. Different poses and all that.
Now to figure out what everything else is going to look like... I have preliminary sketches, so let's try and work them into photoshop...

A few more uploads :D

Rabbithead Man. My second favourite super-villain-turned-super-hero. I had a nice time doing this idea sheet for him today.

And the guy in the post below in another idea sheet which sees him getting limbs blown off. Losing concentration makes me make things lose things.

Another Rabbithead Man. The first one I did. I like it.
That's all for today.
I need to go home.

Getting the hang of this posting thing.

Well for today, I didn't do a whole lot of what I should have done...

I did doodle a bit.

Character design for one of my enemies - Big Mouth - and a colour palette that I didn't really adhere to.

Another Big Mouth idea and the one I will most probably keep and model in Maya. Ha. I hope.

This is concept work for a comic (I assume) called Gunhead. I love it. I looked at one of the figures on the right and had a go at drawing it again.

Here it is all coloured in.

And here's the linework.

Here are some more doodles.
I also did a couple of really short animations to see if I could. I could. They're not the best, but I know how to do them now. A bit more time and a bit more patience, I should be animating and things in little to no time.

Sort of on time with this post.

A handful of images today. Mostly pen drawings. I like pen drawings.
The first sketch for my Bomb-Head character. I've modified it somewhat for a card for Thursdays' lessons. I'll post that the next time I'm on.

Post-Apocalyptic bloke. I may have posted this before, but I won't know until I hit the send button on this post.

The Monkey. My first nearly-all-my-work-with-no-help 3D model in Maya. Next time I'm hoping to cut down the help to but a few reminders.

A background doodle. I might do something more with this. I might not.

And a quick pen doodle of Ares - god of war. I've put this into photoshop and I'll show you some things when it's done. Don't expect much - I haven't really got the hang of the photoshop thing yet.

That's all for now.

A few things from the past few weeks... It's about time I tell you all again that I'm going to try and keep up to date with my posts. This time I've got the excuse/helpful idea that since I'm on the computer at least three days a week, I can use one of these days to show y'all a little bit of what I'm doing.

First Maya 'doodle'. A nice, big cartoony gun. I like it. I don't like Maya.

Today's work. I am very happy with this. A big thanks to Thom Rosell for all the help he gave me. I wanted to get it textures by the end of the day. An hour and forty minutes after the end of the day, I was finished.

Ideas for two characters that I'm thinking of including in the same game as the Maya doll above.

A character idea sheet for another game I'm working on. I'm excited about this game. This character didn't go through, though. It was replaced by a number of smaller characters.

And a mock-up of a card for the same game as the bomb-head character. The card's title: Big Gun.

That's about it for today. I'll have some more things next week. Sometime.

Finally have the internet again.

Sorry for the delay. Now that I have the internet, I've started back at uni. At least here I'm on a computer and can update at least sporadically.

Here are two wallpapers I threw together yesterday for the entertainment of myself. Borrowed influences from my ref folder.

Tired robot. I'll experiment with textures at some point.

And a swamp thing.

I've got to get to work... Thanks for sticking around.

So much for keeping up to date... Apologies. I can't get on the internet at the house at the moment. More doodles and things coming this way sometime.

For now.. hm...
Artsy New York photo.

More painting - final pieces.

A few pictures. Starting with the not-so-good, ending with the slightly better.

A painting based on a plein air piece, using arbitrary colours.

The middle panel of a triptych. Telephone poles.

The left hand panel of the triptych. Telephone poles.

That's all for now. I thought I had the third panel of the triptych, but I don't, so I'll have to get another photo of it.

Life Drawing final - 3 part narrative.

My three-part narrative for Life Drawing. I drew myself falling out of a tree.


Not reaching far enough - starting to fall.

Falling away from the viewer.

At first, I had the full-figure picture as the second in the series, but after talking with my lecturer, we decided that the order that they're in now makes more sense, as the figure gets gradually smaller as the series goes on. It zooms out, if you will.

There are a few more pictures that I've taken of pieces I've done this year, but I'll post them in another post another time.

Doodles. Academic year '09 - '10. A few of them, anyway.

Doodles from various sketchbooks from various times of the past 8 months or so. Various.

Robot things and references for an illustration project.

A few flower doodles for a sculpture project and idea based off another illustration project.

Another doodle based off an illustration project. I decided to try and make a cartoon out of myself. This is what I came up with.


A lot of fish. I was sat by a fish tank.

Goatboy. Or Goat Boy. This idea was based off a drawing I saw on some art sub-forums I post on every now and then.

Goat Boy again.

Different head(s).


Some doodles for a sculpture project.

And another one. This one was based on the sculpture ideas but I took it a bit further.

Mouths and tongues.

Bird creature and an eye.

Ideas for little things I could make with Super Sculpey - an over-bake clay.

Sea monster. Experimenting with different media. Paint, pen and paint pen.

More sea monster goodness. More paint, more pen, more paint pen.

Idea for different Juan dolls. I'm aiming to make every one of these and maybe more as I go. Who knows?


(Blurry) trees.

Character idea. Messing round with it.

And again at the top left. The ideas for the Super Sculpey models came from these doodles.

Skull in class. A few minutes - not that accurate.

Exploding head man. And a medusa. Of sorts.

A few more doodles.

And more.

Fish. Most of what I doodle speaks for itself because there is really not that much more thought behind it before I do it.

Me falling.

Lightning and people pointing. If I remember correctly, the point pose came from a splat on a window or something.

Bottom of those pages.

Middle of those pages.

Guy with a robot arm. Every sketchbook needs one.

Guy fixing his robot arm.


My brother's alter-ego. I'm going to work on my whole family over time. For now, it's just him.

More assorted doodles. Spacemen.

Doodles based off some more sculpture. I made little wire men and I had the idea of gluing insect wings to them. I started drawing off that idea and came up with these pages.

Little figures.

Jumping and running and flying and floating.

More doodles. That signature? Dan Scott. That's right.

Guns and fish men and a squirrel man and Earl the zombie. Haven't seen him for a while.

More men and fish men.


Assorted wings and spikes and people and things.

(Blurry) robot bits. A little minotaur at the bottom, there.

More Goat Boy. I drew him in a few sketchbooks, so there are a lot of pictures of him.

Bumpyhead man thing. I'm not that good with names.

Half a man in some sort of incubator.

More doodles of the little character. '90's freezeframe included.

Mothman. Or something.

And a little paint-doodle for my fiancée. I love her.

So there are a few doodles from the year. I'm still going. I've got a lot of work to do at the moment, but when I'm not drawing, I love doodling. I hope you've enjoyed that torrent of images. I'll try (again) to keep on top of things here.

Have a nice day.
