Another lunch break thinger-ma-jigger and WHAT DO YOU KNOW, IT’S A GIRL! Very Yoshitaka Amano inspired.
Around 2-3 hours I think? Photoshop CS6 & Cintiq.

I vividly remember a few moments from when I was growing up that - as corny as it sounds, felt like they’d altered my life a little bit. One was when I was six years old and I watched The Little Mermaid for the first time and the other: Sailor Moon when I was 13. I can’t even describe how much they blew my young mind and I’m sure they’re some of the biggest influences that nudged me into art. 

Both have a certain reverence with me and as much as I drew them growing up neither of them are something I’ve painted now that I’m all grown up, there’s definitely a feeling that whatever I paint won’t do justice to it but; I adored Sailor Moon from the very first second I saw it on tv. I would wake up at the crack of dawn before school to watch this and then race home again afterwards to watch the repeat. I think it’s about time I paid homage to one of my favourite anime’s ever; Sailor Moon!

I am also totally effing stoked for the reboot coming soon!

Another sketch! A potential Alice in Wonderland inspired piece for the Fairy Tales series. Not sure if I’ll actually finish this one up in colour or not, who knows.

So not really a sketch but not really a finished piece either? Just a little something I painted for a Q&A in the current Imagine FX, which I liked enough to post :)

Presenting my new online skillshare class: Character Concept Art: from thumbnail to final design. 
I’ve teamed up with skillshare to bring you guys a class all about character concept art. There are videos and a complete project guide to guide you through the steps, from initial thumbnails right through to the finished article. I’ll talk about brushes, thumbnails, posing, refining, detail, texture, what clients expect: pretty much everything I can stuff in there. I’m in the midst of putting this together and I’m being as thorough as possible to really try and give you a good sense of how I do what I do. 
A little extra info: The classes consist of various short videos explaining the steps behind the character concept work and there is a written project guide to accompany the class. It’s not a live event so you can watch whenever you want to. You can submit your work into the student gallery so other members of the class can discuss the work and give feedback if they wish to. I myself will be looking at the work but I’m won’t be providing individual feedback for everyone who takes part. It’s a self initiated project. 
The class is currently open for enrollment and will be released on the 8th October. For those of you who sign up early there’s an extra 10% discount with the code ERLYBRD
If this class goes well I plan on putting more together in the future explaining other techniques :)
