To Kick Things Off...

..Here is a sketch I started last week and finished off on Sunday. Unfortunately I can't claim credit for the drawing entirely as it is a copy of an existing picture. The original is part of some concept art for forthcoming Xbox 360 game, Fable 2.

It was my intention to see how close I could get to the original without spending too long on it. I'm fairly pleased with the results. Not everything is exactly in the right place and some close up detail is lacking, but it has more or less turned out how I hoped it would. Apart from the sword and lock box thing, which look wonky. Though it was my policy throughout not to make any proper corrections.

Hello. This is odd. I'm not quite sure what to say, the weight of perceived expectation is too much. Like when you've got to read poetry in front of hundreds of miserable looking people during school assembly because your teacher thought it'd be a good idea. Stupid woman.

Anyway, this is my first entry in my new Blog. Basically, as the subheading below my incredibly witty title states, this Blog is simply a means to encourage my artistic side.

I intend to regularly post bits and pieces on here. Sketches, paintings, animation line tests- all on show for the whole world to pour scorn upon. I say "the whole world", more likely, just a few friends who can actually be bothered to visit this page. Maybe the odd stalker. Nevertheless, any feedback will be appreciated. Unless of course it's written in text speak, in which case I will instantly h8 u.
