Been a while since I was on as works been getting in the way as usual and a system failure on my Macintosh - Yes Macintosh, first one since I bought it about 4 or five years so not bad really, pesky computers!
Anyway, just been trawling the memory for more stuff to update the blog as its been ages since I added anything, dug out a few more samples - A real mixture of stuff from ad roughs and concepts to artwork. Still cant put anything up Ive worked on in the past couple of months so nothing exciting but there you go!
The top one is a visual for an ad agency advertising I used lightwave for the piston and photoshoped the rest, it was a pretty tight deadline (ie an evening) so I didnt have a great deal of time to go to work on the surface textures and its probably pretty rough if you look close enough.
The little ninja was a sketch I did for my brother in law who wanted a little character to make into a sticker for his motorbike. would have liked to work this one up into artwork, but it never went any further.
The next was an illustration for a callendar I did some time ago it was for the month of December and was to represent 'new years resolution' The client wanted quite a basic style like the drawings on the back of the cards on aeroplanes explaning how to escape a plane crash into the ocean......yeah right!
The next one was for the same job, cant recall what the idea behind this one was now, obviously something to do with old women and the Hokey-Cokey I'll leave it at that. These were done in illustrator, ideal for that nice clean line.
The next was just a rough for an ad and was hand sketched and rendered in photoshop.
The next was a small artwork for a...you guessed it...Christmas card, this was the cover and inside the card was a 'colour by numbers style outline drawing of the front cover' and each pequin represented a different employee, Santa being the company director of course.
The last few were character concepts Lucifer and Jed were developments of characters I worked on the these with Mark Jobe, check out his blog in the links, the Mr Incredibles rip off was an illustration to feature on the side of a van for a client who had set himself up in business ironing other peoples clothes and he's called iron man, hence the shape of his face!
The black and white illustration of the boys face was done in illustrator and was for another callendar for a printing company, the final illustration the boy had a bright red spot on the end of his nose, and the title for this one was 'Spot Colour' all of the illustrations were based on printing termimology.
