Raphael is the subject for today. The image started out a bit bigger than shown here, but it worked better when cropped a little. I'm quite pleased with how the shading on the right side of the bandana turned out, though that was more by luck than anything.

Here we go with another painting and a quick sketch. I'm making a concerted effort to paint at least one image each day. Hopefully i'll get a bit better, but that's clearly going to take a while. After all i've still got seventeen blank pages in my sketchbook to fill. ;p

I'm quite happy with this. I've tried not to get too bogged down with detail and instead focus on the larger brush strokes. It's not the best thing ever, but considering the last lot I posted it's at the very least an improvement of sorts.

I got myself a HP Touchsmart TM2 a few days ago. It's a nice little laptop that converts into a tablet and just happens to have a wacom digitiser built in. It's great for sketching, but it takes a little getting used to. So here's the first few crappy attempts at using it.

Latest batch of sketches, some good, some bad. I was trying to shade the rocks a little differently in the later images, which seems to create a nice look. For anyone keeping count, I'm on sketch 33 with another 17 to go.
