Auckland Drawings

It's been sometime since I've uploaded some artwork to here. I've mostly been drawing, street scenes and such.

Dune Painting

Here are several drawings I did well reading the Frank Hebert book - DUNE. Rather than working from reference these works are from imagination. I do this in real time - read a passage from the book and draw what it's saying (often DESCRIBING a character or environment).

I've been using bio pen for my work. It's quick, bold and allows me to WRITE more. Drawings are photographed at various stages - line and tone. Convert to black and white, just to get rid of that color temp problem. Make everything the same.

Dzhokar RedditGetsDrawn Portraits

The following images were drawn this morning. Reference used was photographs on RedditGetsdrawn. Minimal line, but enough to fill in the area. No tone was used. For tone HB pencil is easier to work with. Bonus Dzhokar portrait.

2H Pencil Works


The following images were drawn recently in an a5 sketchbook. Paper quality is high. Slightly textured. Page is easily marked. 2H pencil was used. This is preferred over HB for line. HB handles shading well.

Reference is RedditGetsDrawn/listener magazine/ imagination.



Oil Paint Portrait Tree

Oil paint hasn't been used since 2011. Blank wooden boards were lying around the room. Not being used is a waste. The follow images were painted. Relaxing, and something different.

Three Angry Figures

I've been doing other things rather than updating this blog. It's a shame really. I do art. I do photography. I don't get it uploaded. My laptop is a mess and I'll really like to just start over with my file system. It needs a clean up.

Anyway, this post is a start of many to come. blobbyCreated in GIMP, my old tablet small square tablet was used. Three figures drawn. It's nice to just doddle away in GIMP. It needs a color layer!
