Elton sketch painted!

Hi guys. Decided to paint this in between my commissioned work, it was a watercolour sketch I did a while back that I liked as a caricature, but felt I could do more with. In photoshop, I rendered in grayscale, then coloured on a new layer in 'overlay' mode.

Radio Times Illustration

This is an illustration for this weeks Radio Times, done last week. This was quite a challenge, lots of little details to be worked out. The emphasis needed to be on the awards rather than the personality (Steve Punt), so the challenge was to give the awards themselves personality and humour. Ended up rendering this over the course of two days.

Happy Birthday Irving Berlin (March 11th)

This is all with a 4B pencil and white colouring pencil on a fairly dark toned paper. Usually I vary the leads I use, but with the darker paper I felt I had more freedom. Had to photograph it rather than scan it because of the reflection off the pencil.

Willie Nelson

Just a quick sketch from last night. I've got lots in the pipe-line at the moment, plenty of commissions to keep me busy, lots of fun stuff that hopefully I can share with you soon. I've had a few emails about painting with acrylics, and I know a while back I said I'd like to put a DVD together of my painting process, so I can promise that I'll be making this within the next two months, and any questions you'd like me to address, PLEASE SHARE THEM!! I'd be happy to answer as many of them on camera as I can, and give credit to the person with the question.
