Hi everyone! You might remember last year I released my Skillshare Character Concept Art class and that went down a storm, over 2000 of you signed up for it and it received 100% positive reviews. The support was overwhelming so thank you to everyone that took the class!
It was my intention to release the follow up on Skillshare.com again, but the site has changed considerably in the time since my first class, and it’s not the most straight forward option this time. 

The new tutorial, which is indeed a direct continuation of my first class, is now available through gumroad instead!

It’s 36 minutes long and gives you a pretty good general overview of my average colour process. I’ve tried my best to explain things as thoroughly as possible for any beginners watching, info on layer ordering, colour choices, layer modes etc. I’m sure most of you will understand what I’m doing and why I’m doing it, but I haven’t assumed that everyone will know by default. So explanations a-plenty! 

The full size PSD is included, with the B&W character from the previous class and the new colour version so you can toggle between the two. My brush pack is also included, which is available all the time regardless (you aren’t paying for it!) but I’ve included it in the pack as well for convenience.

The tutorial is $9 and available to download right now! The only real difference between my previous Skillshare class and this new tutorial - is just that there isn’t a written guide to accompany it, and that’s reflected in the price. 

I’m totally open to releasing more tutorials and there will be freebies along the way, so if you have any specific requests then fire away! I should probably say that the next tutorial I have in mind will be all about painting skin! I’ve talked about it as much I can in this video, but a more in-depth tutorial is certainly on the cards.

I’m Selling an original! Something that only happens once in a blue moon being as I rarely (never) finish traditional work. 

Anyway, this painting has been with me for a while and I recently added the finishing touches. I love this thing and it pains me deeply to sell it, hence why anyone crazy enough to buy it might need to consider selling a kidney to fund it.

I haven’t sketched for myself in what feels like ages. So it was time for Damien Rice and short haired girls <3

Around 2-3 hours I think? Photoshop CS6 &amp; Cintiq.

A huge part of my job working at Atomhawk has been to illustrate the moment artworks that appear on Pottermore.com. I’ve been working on them since I joined the company (along with the rest of the team) and sadly we’re not really able to share the work. But, every now and then something official is released or posted and we get to share a snippet! So, whilst neither myself nor Atomhawk is credited, we created this! I painted this :) 

If I could include all the artworks I’ve done my portfolio would be bursting at the seams, but alas - I’ll share what I can.
