Promarker New Years


For New Years my flatmate asked me to go to town with him. I took my drawing gear – sketchbook, hb pencil and the new promarkers I got. I ended up working on several works during the night.


The was a portrait that a old guy asked me to draw of his friend to see how fast I was. I was fast and he was impressed. He liked how the colors on the page changed so quickly. I guess that is why the promarkers are so awesome, they are quick to get color down. I am certainly very happy with these colors but need a light blue.

DSC_3213This was an old drawing I did of someone on RedditGetsDrawn for the GameBoy Jam many months ago. I ended up working on the color last night – certainly makes great skin tones.


DSC_3218I took with me to town my Fallout 3 concept art book I have for reference. The theme for EOW is Atomic Bomb Testing Town. It seemed very appropriate to work from Fallout reference for the concept art. Enjoying the suburb creation.

Have a great year.


EOW: Frozen Pass Pencil Drawings

Here’s the drawings I did in my book for the EOW: Frozen Pass. My Brother saw these drawings in my book and said they were good so I have made an effect to upload them .

Continued with the idea from the digital paintings with a giant statue at the edge of a path and a group of people traveling along the edge. High above the ground the ice is cracking.

I’d like to take some of these ideas into 3d, work on a small open world area in Unity3d. DSC_3159




Wellington and Auckland pencil works

It’s been a long time since I’ve uploaded any pencil drawings to the site. During my recent visit to Wellington I picked up a new A5 sketchbook that I have been busy filling with pencil drawings. I also have a 4H pencil which is my favorite, certainly more enjoyable than HB pencil to use.

Much of these drawings are from photo reference, with some from photo and life.

I am offering digital painting portraits for cheap.

Hamilton Building

Since moving to Hamilton I have gotten outside with my drawing and photography gear everyday. This is a great success because my art was really suffering and I had not found inspiration to draw for months.

I’ve been focusing on what I love – environments. Mixture of buildings and nature. There are plenty of seats around Hamilton that I can sit down at, relax and get a drawing done.

Ludum Dare Pencil Sketches

Here’s thress pencil sketches that I’ve done recently. DSC_0708

This is the view from outside my home. I was racing around on my Fathers hand wheel chair and decided to draw the view. A fold up chair would be handy as I’m always having to draw scenes that involve a seat!

I have been using a 2h pencil. It’s a wonderful pencil and I could not go back to HB. No smudging, and takes awhile to blunt – shading still works alright with it.

This was drawn well walking down the road – starting sketching ideas for Ludum Dare – but ended up writing down ideas for a podcast I’d like to start with my friend Matt. I don’t know if it will go ahead because Matt is very unreliable – I might be better to just organize something myself.

RedditGetsDrawn Library Portraits

It’s school holidays and I want to get my sleeping back on track so I’ve been hanging out in the youth center in the Library here in Levin. Using my cellphone as reference I drew several portraits from RedditGetsDrawn. I’ve also found my tablet pen so need to get back into digital painting. It’s nice to put pencil to paper though. Today I’m planning on heading down to the local art center here in Levin. I need to hangout more with like minded individials – people that will answer more than ‘yes’ and ‘thats great’ when I discuss artwork with them.

There was the chance of me going to Wellington today, but I think I’d rather head to the art center.

Here’s the results:

July portrait

Hi. I’ve been busy with unity3d but get in a pencil drawing now and then. I think I’ve lost my pen for my tablet. Its likely somewhere in my room. Looking on mightyape I see they have baboon tablets for 100 dollars – might be worth picking one up.
Anyway. Here’s a pencil drawing I did recently:



The reference for this was a portrait photo on redditgetsdrawn.



Here tone has been added. No color sorry
