Traditionalismist

I didnt get much time for any digital work this week, i've been brushing up on theory/tutorials and also trying to wean myself off a wacom and onto a more nutritious and crunchy diet of traditional media

So to start, here's some random doodles i didnt have time to take any further - even though there's a few i have definate plans for


Then today, using a cast generously on loan from the Cakeypigdog collection, i tried my hand at some more still lifery...no plumb lines, i'm trying to just get comfortable with graphite before i worry about that sort of thing


Ah, isn't she lovely



And finally, i finally managed to break the psychological terror barrier that's gripped me every time i even think of using paints.
So even though this is just some hour and a bit of gouache tomfoolery, its a bit of a personal milestone, having not gone near anything paint like for nigh on 6 years...eventually acrylics are on the cards, and who knows, one day, the mother of all media..OIL PAINTS

Baby steps first though


Slán go fóill!
