Wow its been a minute since I last uploaded! Full time Graphic Design, training and my social life
have been consuming a lot of my time recently! Anyway at the moment I'm hooked on my latest auto-biography IRON MIKE. It's such a intresting read!!

Anyway I copied the front cover, and used pencil and returned back to using colouring pencils to colour the image as I have really missed the natural look and feel you get with using colouring pencils onto illustrations.
Going to back grass roots, pencils, paper, rubber.
Then to finish the image of I filled the negative space with a nice flat pastel brown  to really bring out the illustration.

Manny Pacquiao v Timothy Bradley

This illustration was inspired by the controversial win by Timothy Bradley, as it seemed
clear that Manny Pacquiao was dominate for the majority of the fight. However I hear
there have been talks of a rematch.. watch out for that one!!
Regarding the style, I have slipped back into using my looser coloring style to add the energy in the illustration. I am really happy with the red as I really feel those few strokes really carry the image!!
And below here is a another version of the illustration, limited to a 3 colour pallet.
Which one do you prefer?

As promised another pornstar.. Tori Black

The other day after looking at the stats for my blog I made a discovery, my most viewed page
was a caricature of the pornstar Sarah Jay, so I decided for my next illustration to go with what the public want and draw another pornstar, so I googled top 10 pornstars acording to
Tori Black is the number 1 pornstar at present..
and here she is above enjoy!

more pornstars soon

A bit of British...

(click to enlarge YO)

So its the Queens jubilee soon, so I thought I draw something British and what better to draw than an old London Bus. Also it makes a change from drawing people, as much as I love drawing faces and people I am trying to draw more boring things, but give 'em a twist so they look visually intresting. Like I have done with this bus, for this one I was playing around with a few affects and layers and came across the 'screening' effect and put it on the bus and it really helped to just finish of the coloring of it.

More illustrations of boring things with a twist soon

Recently I have been getting back into my autobiography's and after finishing Lenny McLean's one - Roy Shaw was mentioned in his book as he and McLean had 3 legendary boxing matches for the title of 'The Guv'nor'.

So the end result was that McLean was named the Guv'nor, but I wanted to hear the other side of the story as well as Roy Shaw's story leading up to the fight, I'm half way through and so far its been a brillant read this east end bad boy has had a very colorful life.

So I decided to do an illustration of him, I find that with each drawing I am doing I am needing less and less lines to accurately draw each character which I am really happy about.
Teaming the line drawing with my expressive coloring style is becoming my staple style now.

I think for my next illustration I'm going to do something completely different, just to
challenge myself.
