Colour Work!

Ive got an amazing A3 printer Scanner recently which makes it sooooooooo much easier to do my work because i tend to draw on A3 size yet downsize it and its much easier to scan now and get the right resolution and printing quality so i do loveeeee it!

Still playing about at the moment but hopefully it'll get me moving a bit more, these drawings are a selection from my degree portfolio which id been working on colour wise, i got some great A3 print outs from my dear friends Emily's printer which I've coloured on top with pencil crayon- favourite medium as its precise and i have the most control over it as my work is very detailed. I like the outcome after working with it on photoshop, hopefully the quality shows up, just need to take it further now hopefully building on it more and getting colour incorporated into my designs more.

Cousins and Christmas!

Little personal image for my lovely cousin for her birthday, her as a princess character with one of her beloved chinchillas which are soooooo delightful, i do love fluffy little creatures, she loved this so i saw this as a way to move forward doing designs specifically targeted for people and what they like and what they do so its much more personal and means something just to them as well as others seeing it as a good design, Also starting on some Christmas ideas and designs, i really like this one, feel its central and balanced and works well as a finished design, bring on the colour next!

Girlys character images for Family

I decided to do individual images for all my family members for their birthdays which has since left me with quite a back log due to scanner/printer failures!! Here are two examples for my Gran and Grandma, very dreamy, girly, whimsical images great fun to draw and focus on the great detail of the strokes of the pencil work and the flicks and sketches which can add that greater definition.

Some bits of work from Summer

Its been a bit of a crazy time since graduating, i had two weeks at home and a weekend in Ireland then went straight into a full time job at a bank 9-5 which I've been at ever since up until Christmas now!! So busy busy but still getting on with doing some drawing work, these are two card design images for my sister's lovely friends Hannah and Sarah at uni, two birthdays close together, both images aimed at the characters of the girls, these were done in my sketchbook so the paper quality was not best i think the Sarah image turned out better quality wise, yet i still like these two little images.
