Welcoem to 2021. I’ve been playing Path of Exile a bit this month, but here are some drawings.
Sketch of the poe logo. I have also been working on a Python project called poe-pillow (named after the pillow lib for python to do stuff with images), so there is a mention of that in there. It used the poe api in order to generate characters profiles as GIFS.
Reference was some Path of Exile concept art recently released.

Reference was the comic phillfromgchq.

The theme on sketchdaily was calzone. I had never heard the term before. But it’s similar to pizza.

Happy New Year! It’s the first post of 2020. This one has a mixture of rgd portraits, random doodles, and some collab with Giang.
The request from Giang was to draw Cronulla beach. We were sitting in Hyde Park so I had to do it from memory. Lucky for me I had been at Cronulla Beach the day before. I started with the landscape in the background. A horizon line. Giang said the waves were too large. But I think Cronulla has quite large waves. The clouds are larger than my usual clouds. In the center - a character.
A grayscale painting of the Cronulla scene. Normally I just stick with line. The character has been changed from the line version
And finally a colour version of Cronulla Beach. Blue for the sky and waves. Red for the land in the distance. Pink for the sand on the foreground, and a yellow for the character and fish in the water.
This was drawn at Cronulla Beach on Saturday. I drew the cronulla lifeguard tent and then made everything else up. I was infuenced by the surroundings though.
Drawing of xsalachia from RedditGetsDrawn. I like the tattoo on her shoulder. Added in buildings and waves for water in the background.
A collab piece with Giang. She started it and added the trees, sun, girl, flowers, swing, grass and clouds. I added the cat, more grass and clouds, airplanes, and a character on the swing. Collab works are always fun!
Character standing on a circle spiked object.
Portrait of Babyiennecfox. I don’t normally draw males but when I do beards are always the best to draw (something that females generally lack). His eyes are large. In the background - square tiles.
A sun with a face. I was going to add a face to Giangs sun but she stopped me. Likely for the best.
Drawing of nahez2421 smoking a cigar. Gangster.
A character with his hand on shoulder, and in the air.
A portrait of imadamnedfish from rgd. I like the plaster on her nose, and the black chocker on her neck. Curly fence posts in the background
A character with longhair
The final collab piece with Giang. We sat at Hyde Park and worked on this piece together. She added the trees and I added the statue and water fountains.
Drawing of artboxcreationsinc from rgd. I like her glasses and the shape of her arm.
Special thank you to Giang for the collab on several pieces in this post.

These drawings were created during a recent trip to Palmy.
doodles in the Palmerston north library. This looks like it has a bug in the centre.
I read The Night Circus and started IT. I likely won’t finish IT but the start is excellent. I have a Kobo and the sleep screen shows the book cover. This has motivated me to draw it.
Line drawing of an ex-flatmate and good friend. Drawn on election day 2017.
wasted votes: all those drunk and stoned votes.
Clouds morphing to worms being sucked inside giant machine. Spit out fluid at the bottom.

I have a new Wacom Intous. It’s more sensitive than my old one. It’s also less damaged. My old Wacom Intous (which I got in 2014) was chipped away and stained. Something new is nice! I hope whoever finds my old Wacom puts it to use :)
Rick like face but got carried away with the spikes.
Landscape with figures. Shading in areas with rough lines.
My Sweet Lord. Self portrait on the left. Circles, spikes and other shapes.
Rick and Morty from imaganation. Done this a few times. Logo dev for artctrl.me
Having a go with the new tablet in Krita. Have yet to test grayscale/color layers with the new drawing tablet.
More line tests.
