Day 7: Its a bit 'otter!

Well actually it felt a bit colder today! Me, the fiancé and the parents went to Cosmeston to the medieval village and after that we went around the lake. It was lovely even if I was intensely tired after getting 4/5 hours sleep. There were a lot of birds there (plenty of ducks and some cute young swans) but no otters. There were pictures all over the place saying there were otters but I saw none. So I drew this fella. I plan on making him out of felt for a friend of mine at some point but that's not for awhiiiilllleeee. He looks surprised, probably because someone found him at long last!

Day 6: Albert the Duck!

Meet Albert the Duck (bottom left) he's a cheeky fella for sure! He has some friends and they are all a bit daft too. Had a wonderfully productive day today and now have to design a tattoo! :D

Day 5: Cute Baby Dragons!

I had the unavoidable urge to draw cute baby dragons today. It happens sometimes.
These guys only have very simple colouring because I had another full day of work and I still can't get a decent colour similarity from painter-photoshop files. I hope you like these guys, I find the cute little optimism brightens my dreary day a bit haha. I hope to draw a malard tomorrow. I like them. I find them funny.

Day 4: Max is happy

I've had so many problems with photoshop and colours-after-saving recently this is the first picture in ages that hasn't changed! And that's because I switched off colour management. His name is Max. He's happy to see you. He's also shaded in a different way, and infact drawn differently too. Normally I'd sketch a drawing like this in my sketchbook first but I made an effort to try it in Photoshop instead. Also I didn't use any opacity on the shading, I picked the tones which I don't do very often (I usually let multiply and screen come up with the tones, bad I know but what ya gonna do, haha!)
I must start publicizing this blog but my days have been choc-a-block so far! I spent all day today colouring in scenes of war for my good friend Jordans comic. Anyway now I'm going to take a break by watching the I.T. Crowd for awhile.

Day 3: From the Clouds

Hiya, here's a rather abstract piece. I don't have a lot of time to say much about it because my battery is running out on my laptop. I've had a great day today despite the rain. Hope everything is good with you!  Tara!

Day 2: Emerging from the drawing

This dragin seems to be emerging from that guys hand. Or maybe its like a sci-fi viewing device? Or it could be a magic creating and image or viewing the dragon. Hmm magic CCTV. Scary stuff.
Anyway heres day two. Its not much, I think I've burnt out my creative energy by working non stop today (okay I stopped to get lunch and tea... Oh and to help my mam get the shopping in and to take breaks to stretch like the doctors say we should but you get my drift!) but all the same I'm quite happy with this piece. Theres something lovely about pencils, although Corel Painter doesn't seem to have nailed digital ones.

Tata, see you tomorrow!

Drawing a Day!

Well I've decided to do a drawing every day. Its something I did a year or two ago and it was great. I did it for a 100 days that time but who knows how long it will go on for this time! Each day I'll post something along with some babble about my life and how job hunting and house hunting is going (and whatever comes after the hunts are over). For now I'll post this one image, its some icey, kinda makes me think of the Sims logo.

The blog and everything is intensly bare right now but I'll sort that out soon. It'll be awesome.
Tata for now. See you tomorrow!
