Jack Frost illustration

Mr Jack Frost illustration
We have had such a good winter so far. Until today (boo). Mr Jack Frost decided to pay a visit. It was so so cold. 
This illustration was a quick digital doodle (say that fast a few times). I tried some different photoshop brushes. They are more traditional and the overall feel is a lot looser.
Over the next few months I am hoping to try my hand at some differing styles to my more crisp outline style. 
We'll, better head to bed (warm thoughts, warm thoughts) as Mr Frost is coming again tonight.

Take care everyone
Thanks for visiting

Jurassic Kid illustration

Just had to do an illustration with the up and coming new Jurassic World movie. I initially wanted to go with a fan art image but I was thinking, nah. Let's go to a more emotional place. Like how I felt when I saw the very first movie. Now I definitely was not that young (above image), but watching the first movie made me feel that way. As did the remaining movies.
The fourth movie doesn't quite have the magic of the first but it still has plenty of action and enough dinosaur carnage to keep anyone well entertained. 

As always take care, thanks for visiting.

Tools used:
  • Illustrator CS3 for the crispy clean lines
  • Photoshop CS3 for the rendering

Star Wars fan art illustration

Star Wars fan art
It is finished - whoooaaa!!!!This has been a labor of love and hate as I have worked on this for the last month and a half. So glad I persevered. Probably the greatest lesson I have learned is if something is bothering you, get rid of it. That walking carpet (Mr Chewbacca) was edited and re-edited sooooo many times till I got the fur where I wanted it. Full respect to artists who do furry creatures. Seriously!!!
I will post up soon a basic little run over of the basics in this piece. Hope some stuff in it may help.
As always, thanks for visiting.
And a big shout out to the awesome artist Patrick Brown. His tutorial online through Skillshare was awesome and helped me so much. Thank you Patrick.
