4th Doctor – blocking

Next step in the process: blocking in. This went pretty  quickly, and I already feel I’m getting a better likeness than last time. Managed to get a little bit of step 3 done, a detail pass of the face.

I’m making good progress – I’m pretty psyched. Let’s hope I can get my momentum back.



4th Doctor – once more from the top

Sorry I haven’t had much time to work on this lately, I’ve been busy all summer working on a few charity projects IRL.

I really didn’t like how the previous attempts at this Doctor were coming out, so I’ve decided to start again, with my usual method of working from a screenshot.  Since the previous three have all been fairly happy expressions, I’ve decided to go with something a bit more serious this time:

This time  I’m planning on working through chapter one of Advanced Painter Techniques by Don Seegmiller, using this drawing instead of the one from the book. Wish me luck!

Haven’t had time to work on many personal projects lately. I’ve been busy working on posters for  a few local arts groups. This one’s for an amateur theatre company for their upcoming show. I broke out the acrylics again for this for the first time in quite a while. I definitely seem to have learned a lot in the meantime – this was a lot less frustrating than my previous attempts at working with acrylic.
