We went for a nice dog walk around Chopwell Woods today :)

Submerge. The fight to keep your head above water can be a tough one sometimes.
Photoshop CS6, Wacom Intuos 5 and an hour or two of messy sketching.
Anonymous asked: Hey there Charlie! I've been doing art for... gosh, a few years now. And I keep doing so many studies but I keep getting caught doing things stylized even if I want to draw them semi-realistic. Any advice?
Oh boy, that’s such a difficult question to answer as I haven’t figured that out myself yet! It’s getting caught in the trap of your own style. I find it easier to step away from my style if it’s *more* stylized or cartoony, etc. I struggle with pushing realism. I’m throwing it out there really if anyone has good suggestions? Using a -lot- of reference and always having it in view seems like a good idea. Just as a constant reminder of the style you’re going for rather than being left to your own devices and drifting off.
The sketch choices I did for my recent ImagineFX 114 cover and workshop!

Just sharing the fact that after much faffing, my shiny new portfolio website is all done! :)
spookykaiju asked: Your beautiful drawing (painting?) of Linden and Holder punched me right in the heart. It's so beautiful, and so perfect.
Thank you! That ending punched me in the heart <3
I had to do a little drawing for The Killing, I COULDN’T HELP MYSELF.
The Killing was such a wonderful show and the ending was so, so perfect. I adored it, so much so I just had to doodle something for it. I ugly cried my way through the entire thing, it was beautiful. SO MANY FEELINGS.
“I never had a real house to grow up in. You know, home. I never belonged anywhere. And all my life, I was looking for that thing, you know. Thinking that it was out there somewhere. That all I had to do was find it. But I think, maybe, that home was us. It was you and me, together in that stupid car, riding around, smoking cigarettes. I think that was everything. I’m sorry. I should have known that you were one person who always stays. And you were my best friend.”
Linden & Holder <3
