More pooch portraits!

This is my latest pet portrait I completed as a Mothers Day Gift.

I'm benefiting from doing these pet portraits as they are helping further develop my fine art skills whilst helping me gain further knowledge and understanding of light shadow and form and also scale and composition.

Stay tuned as I'm well on my way with the next one...

Mug Shot... The Alien Warrior

Passport Photograph Example...

Inspired by various websites over the past few days my crazy head produced this freaky looking thing! I often wonder if i have a problem... or just an interestingly strange imagination?!

I quite like this guy, i roughed out a scribbly silhouette, discovering interesting shapes as i went along, then built up the shape and form, later applying tones and a colour overlay. Its supposed to look a tad rough highlighting key features as i continue to loosen my art style. I like the mystical aura the creature is giving off perhaps conserving power, posing for his passport photo... or preparing for a devastating attack... who knows!

I wouldn't recommend sticking around to find out!

Latest Clients Pet Portrait...

Hey Guys!

Here's my latest Pet Portrait for one of my Clients.

This one was drawn on A3, mounted and framed.

Whilst producing these artworks I am finding myself gaining further understanding of light and shadow and defining my Fine Art skills.

I'm really enjoying it!
