Time taken: 30 minutes

So, this is another of the monsters from the Kingdom Death Monster game, this time the Screaming Antelope, which is essentially, a large Antelope with a gaping maw in the chest surrounded by human hands (yep, this games is all sorts of weird). Fun little sketch with some nice shading on the artwork and I love how the head came out on the sketch.

Till next time!

Time taken: 25 minutes

So, bit of a random departure from what we normally have on this blog as I’ve recently started watching Kingdom Death Monster playthroughs on youtube and wanted to sketch one of the monsters from it as the lore and designs of some of the monsters seems pretty cool. Anyway this is the first monster that you’ll face in the game in the form of the White Lion,  a strange lion creature with human hands. Interestingly I couldn’t find any drawings of it so I made this sketch from the picture of the miniature that’s included in the boardgame. Quite like how it came out as well though I wish I’d managed to make it look more horrifying or brutal looking.

Till next time!

Time taken: 15 minutes

So, this was a bit of a weird day as I did half of the sketch before I went to work then forgot to actually finish it off later in the day. Luckily, it was pretty much finished when I lift it before work so I didn’t have to worry too much. As for what fish it is I have no idea, again like the Lionfish it was in the huge tank in the middle of the Aquarium. but I liked how the photo came out so decided to sketch it.

Till next time!

So, another image from the aquarium, this time one of the glowing jellyfish in one of the many small tanks in the aquarium. Again I really like how this one came out, and was a bit worried while sketching it that it wasn’t going to looks anything like the subject and reference photo but once I added the black background into it came out really well and it really helped it pop out of the sketch.

Till next time!

Time Taken: 25 minutes

So, this was a rather shy Octopus at Plymouth Aquarium, which I managed to get this shot of as he moved around a bit and revealed a bit more of himself from the rocks he were hiding in. Really like the outcome of this sketch as well and I think it lent itself well to the brush pen that I used in it and the bold lines came out nicely and gave the octopus a shape. Not really much else to say apart from that though so we’ll move on and try and get caught up a bit.

Till next time!

Day 793: Lionfish, Plymouth Aquarium

Time taken: 30 minutes

So, for my wifes birthday we headed down to the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth to have a day out and while there I took a few photos of some of the fishes and marine life down there  including this one of a Lionfish (or at least I assume its a lionfish, it was in a huge tank with god know how many other fish sdidn’t have its own information board for me to be sure about but, as far as I can tell its a Lionfish). Anyway I used my brush pen for this one for something a bit different and really liked how it came out with this one , with the shading being a lot better than I thought it would turn out while I was doing it which, is always a nice thing to happen. So, hope you like the fish and expect a couple more to come over the next few days as I choose some of my photos to sketch.

Till next time!

Day 491: Reindeer

Day 491: Reindeer

Reference image: Google search for Reindeer though trying to find this exact image again is a bit of a challenge so sorry for that.

So, coming up to Christmas I decided that it might be nice to do some more Christmas sketches rather than the comic ones that I’d done in the days before so decided to sketch a Reindeer because you know, Christmas and all.

Anyway I actually really like how the actual sketch came out and it looks a lot more accurate than I thought it would while sketching it. Funnily enough one of the bits of the sketch that I actually really like is the foliage along the bottom which really shouldn’t be interesting at all but there you go, apparently I like it a lot.

Anyway, that s the first of the Christmas sketches (or at least i think it is, its been a while since I blogged anything though so I might be wrong). Got a couple more to upload so will see you then!

Till then!

Day 487: Pride

Day 487: Pride

Reference image: Again, I accidently closed the tab that the image was open in and can’t seem to find it in my history sorry. The google search however, was lion roaring.

So, another change in choice of subject fro yesterday, brought on by trying to get my son to sleep and having to listen to ‘Can you feel the love tonight’ over and over again (song from the Lion King in case you were wondering where the connection was). Definitely, one of the better sketches that I’ve done recently, this one came out really nicely for the amount of time that I spent on it and for how loose the lines and concentration on it was.

So, that’s everything all caught up again, today not included which is better. Hopefully tomorrow I can get both today’s and tomorrow’s up then we’ll be properly caught up but we’ll have to see.

Till then!

Day 388: Huge Fossil at Charmouth!

Day 388: Huge Fossil at Charmouth!

So, a few days ago I sketched the Charmouth Coast Heritage centre for you all. Well, this fossil was one of the ones that can be found inside the small centre/museum and it’s huge, easily 60cm+ in width and, given that I really enjoyed sketching the fossil that I drew a while back I had to take a photo of this one and sketch it as well.

So, ignoring the awkward cropping of the table that it stands on I really like the outcome of the actual fossil and I learnt a few things while sketching it to by actually trying to accurately copy the photo rather than assuming that I knew where light would fall (because in this case, I would have been a fair bit wrong half the time). Anyway, I was really happy with the final outcome of the sketch and the actual fossil didn’t really take that long to do either as it was quite scribbly.

Right one more down nd one more to go for tonight so again, I hope you enjoy looking at the fossil as much as I did sketching it and I see you all in a minute with the final upload for tonight!

Till then!
