Howdy fellow Deviants. I'm a (very) amatuer artist living in the UK. I've always enjoyed drawing but have never taken it very far due to severe laziness. So this Deviant page is my way of making sure I keep drawing and hopefully improve.
I like pretty much all types of art but really love comic book and cartoon stuff the most. Dont be surprised to see a few Marvel inspired pieces popping up as well as stuff based on my favourite games and films.
Please feel free to comment, i see a lot of very good artists around here and i'm sure you can all teach me a thing or to.

Current Residence: UK
Favourite style of art: comic
Favourite cartoon character: Spidey
Pencil, my favorite medium. Its fast, its loose, its flexible and most importantly its forgiving. I'm sure i'm not the only one that likes seeing comic art before its inked and that drools a little bit when he sees a page of Adam Warren's Empowered art.

There's a strange esoteric quality to pencil art that is not only hard to describe but is hard to produce. For want of a better phrase I call it 'life'. A good pencil sketch has life in it and my sketchbook is full of little quick sketches that I think have this quality.

The problem comes when I want to 'finish' those sketches properly. I carefully try and follow all those sketchy lines with one crisp, dark one. The result? A flat, lifeless drawing that I hate. Maybe its something that comes with experience and confidence but so far its eluded me.

My latest drawing, of Game of Thrones' Daenerys, started as a nice loose H lead sketch  ( with admittedly messy dragon shape things ) that I did while relaxing and enjoying a nice JD and Coke. I 'finished' it with a HB lead, hunched over a table trying not to mess up the original sketch.

Maybe i'll just try and relax more when i'm finishing a piece - preferably without resorting to JD every time I want to draw.

Urgh, Busted! I have ideas but very low motivation. Sticking the PS3 on always seems easier. BUT possibly some acrylic painting coming soon...ish.
