My scanner is working again!! YAYIE! So, i thought i better get the other half of the last post scanned in and blogged for your viewing pleasure. :)
So, here we go...
The life drawings are all drawn in charcoal and are 30-40 minute poses.
As i can not get out as much as i would like, due to my recovery, i have referenced a model from www.pixellovely.com. I kept strictly to the time limit and treated it just like a real life class.... It's a good substitute when your too poorly to get out the house, but want to keep up with you anatomy studies! :)
Next is the last bunny who sadly didn't get scanned in from the last post. Drawn from life at the pet shop in pen, pencil and Pro -Marker.
The last image was drawn with a nib and ink with watered down brush washes at Disney land in California. It's the ride "Tower of Terror" (The writing on the building is supposed to be wonky) ;)
I drew this in the Californian sunshine, whilst in line for the ride.
OK, this is all i am going to share for now. I have more to show, but am saving them for my new book (which i'm currently putting together). To see them, i'm afraid you will have to wait until my book comes out in November. It will go on sale for the first time at CTNx. After the show it will be available to buy here on my blog. I will have more details closer to the time. Thank you so much for every one who has shown interest in it. I am very excited about its potential and really hope it will go down well with all you guys out there in the real world :)
I must also say a huuuuuge thank you to every one who has been in touch in regards to my jaw and recovery. Its really uplifting to see how many of you care and is very encouraging in helping me get back to work. Thank you!! I am so incredibly grateful to all of you and really appreciate all your thoughts, prayers and lots of love.
As for my recovery, its very painful and slow, and i must admit, it can be really tough to keep focused on my artwork whilst in so much pain.... but like i have said before, i'm a tough cookie and it will take a lot more than a broken jaw to make me crumble! Mu ha ha haaaa!! :P
On a serous note tho, I will be going back to hospital this week for more treatment, so fingers crossed this will help with the pain.
I am so happy for all of the support you guys give me. Getting stuck into my art helps take the focus off the pain im in. I love what i do and get so much enjoyment out of it, and its a really wonderful feeling to be able to share what i do with others and get so much positive feedback back. :D
Iv got a few other tricks up my sleeve which i will be sharing with you in the near future. Once my book is all complete, i'll reveal more.... So, watch this space :P
Alrighty, time for me to bust a groove, so i will love you all and leave you for now.
Like always, a massive thank you to all of you for the support.
Your love keeps my little blog alive. :')
I'll be back soon,
Bye for now and God Bless,
