Draw - Throne o' Diablo T Shirt Concept

I am friends with the lovely lads in the band Throne o' Diablo and truly enjoy the music they produce. So while listening to them and messing around with my pencils, a while back, I got the idea of a "T Shirt of Terror". I decided from here that I would draw up a T Shirt for the band.

The one image that kept reoccurring was the idea of having something sharp stuck into my eye. From there I got the idea of having my eyeball actually tattooed. Give them a listen by clicking their name and you may get your own inspiration.

This is the work in progress images taken with my phone when I was working on them. I will post the final T Shirt design once I get a minute to redraw and ink it ;)

Draw - Zombie Embrace

I have recently started work on modifying a wonderful piece of photography by Alfred Eisensaedt.

It is called The Kiss and was taken on VJ Day in 1945. The picture itself stirs up many emotions, but I have decided to make my homage a little different.

I have been working on the concept of a War sidetracked by Zombies and the Kiss is being transformed into more of a Zombie embrace rather than a passionate embrace of celebration/Welcome Home.

I will be posting my progress on here as well as posting the final article up on my redbubble site.

Here is the first sketch with some basic shading on the focal point of the piece.

Draw - Something for a friend

A friend asked me last year to draw him a picture of a Robin. It was in memory of his late Grandfather. Unfortunately I am a tad forgetful and only just got round to it. Today is the anniversary of his passing.

This is what I drew for him.

This is the first time I have ever drawn a bird to look lifelike. I am pleased with the outcome and may even try to do some more.
