Fantasy Sketches

Loving Photoshop as I do, I thought I would place together a few of the characters in my sketchbook. This is a work in progress, but this is the first picture of how it's looking. Keep an eye out for the finished drawing as I build out the drawing and add some additional characters.

Digital drawing - demon

Demons and Orcs come in all shapes and sizes and this particular black and white digital drawing was produced a while ago. An odd character indeed and one I would not like to meet on a dark night.
This particular digital drawing started life as a pencil sketch in ne of my sketchbooks and wasscanned and finished off in Photoshop.

Creature concepts - doodles that developed

One of many lunch time doodles that developed into these odd creatures. . . I like both, and keep an eye open for the colour versions coming soon.

Fantasy Creature - detail added!

The detail is starting to be added to the fantasy creature as I build out the highlights, I love this part and it all starts to come together. . .

Fantasy creature WIP....

Down in the woods - WIP
This is the first time I have shown a WIP (work in progress) on this blog. The digital illustration here is no where near finished and has a long way to go before I am happy with it, but thought I would give you a sneak peak as to something I am working on.

As with many of my strange creatures, this one started life in one of my sketchbooks and was then scanned onto the laptop to be painted within Photoshop using my Wacom Intuos 5.

If your interested in this sneak peak, check back to see the finished piece soon. You can also see a basic step-by-step of another of my fantasy illustartions by looking at my Fantasy Dragon Art and how I painted my own article.

Any feedback is welcome and feel free to leave a comment below.

Fantasy Art banner

I have been looking through some of my digital illustrations and thought I would combine a few to spice up my header banner for this blog. Seems to work fine, but let me know what you think?

Sketchbook concept doodle

This weeks sketchbook reveal is here, with these odd creatures I am calling 'Nippers'. A sketchbook comes with me everywhere and you never know when there might be a spark of inspiration.
