OZ Comic-Con Melbourne July 1-2

I will be at Table 66 at OZ Comic-Con Melbourne next weekend, July 1-2. Not only will I be selling prints and plush toys I am teaching a workshop!

If you are around on the Sunday at 4:00pm I will be talking about creating unique character designs and how to improve your figure drawing. I should be at the “Community Stage” but check your Event Guide. It’s that booklet that you get that you only look at once you’re back home…


“Mermay” Eel Mermaid Sketch

I didn’t want to May to finish before I did at least one #mermay drawing! This is a blue color pencil and pen sketch of eel like mermaid concept that might feature in the comic I’ve started.

I think I still need to refine the character more working on the balance of alluring but frightening.


Pair of Red & Gold Wedding Lion Dance Plush Toys

I was honoured to be asked to create a pair of Lion Dance plushies for a friend’s sister’s wedding. I am particularly proud of these toys, not only because I think they turned out really well but because I had only a week to make them both!

Made in lucky red and gold they are approx. 20cm long based on my existing pattern but with extra large heads to make them more “chibi”.
Like the previous lions they have silver faux leather mirrors on their foreheads and red felt “fringe” embroidered on the body and legs.
For these plushies I included extra pom pom details to the nose and head. The feet have been re-enforced with plasticard for balance and stability.

The plush lions were presented to the bride and groom in a very special lion dance performance.


Merry Christmas

Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video !

Bonus Inktober 2016 Time lapse Video!

I wasn’t able to get this video posted before the end of Oct but I thought I would still share it. Learning from my first video – the camera is moved to my left side so the drawing isn’t covered by my hand and I’ve tried to have more light. Nearly all of my inktober drawing were done after I finished everything else for the day meaning they were done often late into the night.

The video has been sped up 16x to show a little over half and hour of inking. My tools for all of my inktober drawings-Castell XF 0.7 mechanical pencil, Mircon pens on toned paper and A3 LED light pad.

I hope to share more process videos in the future and perhaps some tutorials as well.

 


Inktober Day 31 – Ghoul (Back Dated)

*I was fairly certain that I posted it on the day but that post seems to have disappeared. So here it is again!*

#inktober2016 Day 31 – Ghoul

Hungry, the creature feasts on the long dead found in a forgotten tomb.

Happy Halloween!

With a mixture of relief and sadness another Inktober comes to an end. It was a challenge to find time to do a drawing each day but I am really pleased that I could see it through. As rushed as some of these drawing are I am happy with all of them. It has been great practice and really good to draw on paper everyday.

The equally deadly brother to the Basilisk, the Cockatrice has the added advantage of flight.

#inktober2016 Day 28- Kraken

The mighty Kraken, a rare sight to be seen, its size beyond measure hides in the deep.

I finished off this drawing too late to post last night…I’m struggling a little to find time to do these everyday but I’m determined to see out the challenge.

The deepest fear, the darkest fear. No culture in the world is without the Bogeyman.
