OCT 2010: Big Jaws and polar paws

Another Sketchoholic jam: 'Big Jaw'.

Had fun with this one, although I almost threw the lappy through my window after Photoshop froze on me THREE FRIKKIN' TIMES! Saving work often is hardwired into my brain but occasionally we get carried away and forget to save.....well, that happened 3 times too many today. Tonight I'll be dreaming about being run over by giant, rainbow-coloured wheels.
So, didn't get to submit this finished version into the comp today as I had to do a school talk today about creative careers. I didn't mention about being so consumed with anger and frustration at your computer that you try and eat the keyboard.

Anyywaaay, I have also posted a couple of illo's that are part of a commission I have created for a series of school books. I like working in this style, it's good fun and really is my 'bread and butter' style. Most of my commissions are in this style.

Oct. 2010, Male studys 1.

Seriously gotta up my game now. I've been quite slack in terms of observation work. Taken from a photo I know this is cheating as I really need to get out with the sketchbook but consider it my warm up :)

The next one is more of a caricature really.

Once again, I know there's not many of you but any kind of crit is appreciated.

Oct 2010: Sketchoholic-Holic.

AGGHH! I.... can't...stop.....drawing!
I think this will be my last entry for a few days for Sketchoholic's daily drawing challenge! It's been a blast and rather amazingly I have won the past 3 challenges (fungus creature, hairy creature and Big eyes, small nose). I'm happy with the hattrick but here is my final entry this week anyway.
It's all very addictive!
