1 Update!

This is just something I quickly wipped up today. Took me around 6 hours, bit longer than I hoped, though getting the lighting right proved difficult.
Hope you like it!

BIG UPDATE!

I haven't updated this page in a long time and I blame this on the lack of internet bandwidth at my collage, hopefully that will be fixed by next year. Now that I am at home I am able to update.
So this is what I have been up to over the past few months. Enjoy!

Update!

Havent been doing enough of this of late, but uni has been keeping me very busy. So here are two piece which I did a number of weeks ago though never posted. Hope you like them.
This is the character Mary Jane, Spiderman's girlfriend. I was looking for a female to colour which also had some red and metal in it. So this piece seemed to be exactly what I was looking for.

How I Paint!

This is just a very quick look at how I paint. Keep in mind this is very rough so my lighting is probably out everywhere. I will do a better one this weekend I think. Oh and those crazy sounds are my tunes in the background fast forward 3 times over.

Progress!

Between uni work and such I have been painting, suprise. I have this image below printed out and on my wall next to my computer screen, and for the past few days I have been looking at it thinking I can do that so much better now. So I gave it a whirl just to see how much I could improve it. These two images were done about 4 months apart so you can really see my progress.Old Piece

More Recent Work!

This is some of my more recent work I have been doing in between University work. Here are some of the best works I have produced yet! Enjoy.


I did this piece this after noon and I belive it is the most professional piece I have done so far. It took me about 2 hrs to complete. Note that I have coloured over pencils and for those of you who dont know most colours are done over inked lines.

This is a piece I did for practice few days ago. Im fairly happy with it though it has a really hazy feel to it which kinda lets the whole piece down.

This is another piece I have painted recently and has had a major effect on my colouring technique. Took about 6hrs and was a lot of fun. This is the first piece I have done where I have managed to create an illusion of depth.

Old Stuff!

These are nearly all of the paintings I have done to date. Some of them wouldn't upload so I will post them in a new post. I have painted about fifty paintings so far, and these are just a few which I thought were worth posting.

Enjoy! (Note that these are not in any particular order)


This character is known as Gladiator. I think he is one of the X-Men gods. This painting took me about five hours to do, and I can't remember who the pencil artist was.

This is a painting of batgirl I did for a competition.
Lines: Stephan Arthur Schaffer

This was just a quick practice piece of the street fighter character Ryu. Just an hour or so of work here.

Lines: Alvin Lee
