Cheers Evil but cows are always interesting, especially when they chase you when you are going for a run :dry:

Lots of doodles and such from the weekend/ Monday. And just noticed I have too many 0's in my 2014 oops...

Haha yeh, inspired by playing the Wind Waker recently, the design in that game just nails it so perfectly for me.

Some more stuff...

Then let me be the first to greet you when you get back!

These graphic pieces are awesome and have a fun heavy-marker feel to them. This chunky method makes them heavy and substantial. Really nice work!

The painting is great too. I think that a contrasting colour in the knight would add something to this piece. I realise that the mono chrome is intentional, but I think that a little alternate colour would grab the eye and help the story telling by making the viewer move across the whole image.

Plus, what about a glow of some sort in the distant background, as if this creature has already caused some damage way off in the distance? Just a thought.

Looks great, but I am just thinking out loud about it!

Thanks Dom! Thanks for the crit and I see what you mean regarding the last piece, I probably won't go back to it but try and implement these in the future.

New job is going great and loving what I am doing, anyhow little update on some of the work/ sketching I have been doing...

You have another fan in my little sister Spud!

She thinks (as do I) that you have a wonderful sense of fun in these sketches. I love this sort of stuff! Jamie Hewlett does similar stuff for the Gorillas and tankgirl. Loads of little details float around these drawings that tell a story which is unique to each viewer! Really great stuff!

Everything's on the right!!!
