youve seen this image before but for an experiment i took the image into manga studio, created a new layer and proceeded to make a line art layer. the reason im doing this is i have never used manga studio before. and some of my drawings have the potentional to look really nice or deserve to be neetend up atleast .
After creating a rough layout of line. i thought i can actually take this a bit further and i can open up photoshop and put some quick colour on this. i used very similar techniques that i did with the background painter project but not to the level of detail.
After all this was just a test but i know from using this i can go over my sketches and bring them to life even further. and you never know you could see plenty more works of art with this style in the future

after coming back from the london mcm expo and having so many great photos taken the one that stands out for me was photo of my friend liz and my fiancee amy reinacting an event from the legend of korra. dressed as amon. liz decided to take catwomans bending away! but catwoman doesnt have bending? the photo was so great i needed to draw it in my style.

I Know this looks like something a child put together in MS Paint but this is my attempt at illustrator. for this project i had to create a background thats split into layers so a character can interact with the enviroment. you give me photoshop anyday of the week and ill rock that stuff, but my lord i have never felt so incompitent with a programme before. illustrator really had me beat, ill be happy if i never have to use it again but i know im not that lucky. i just hope over the next few projects something actually sticks and i become almost good at it.
this is a church opposite a cafe in cariff. i needed to draw some location stuff and this was perfect i sat outside the cafe orderd an americano and started sketching I used a brown pen and some grey tone kuracolor markers in a moleskine sketchbook. im quite happy with the outcomee but there is an exagerated curve on the windows... coffe wasnt that good either.
These are from a life drawing session I go to at garth olwg life long learning centre they were 20mins each and i decided to use markers for these but in a slightly different way than i usually do. this was more blending than overlaying, I am very happy with how these turned out.

here are two backgrounds where i had to produce day and night scene from a line art layouy, i think the day scene came out quite nicely but the night scene was really tricky and i didnt get the outcome i wanted. however i did learn a lot from this project and i believe i can apply these skills onto future projects.
