Experiment - Vamp

I've done far too much Illustrator of late so I thought I'd take a little time out to Photoshop an illustration. I know Halloween's been and gone but I wanted to draw a vamp. I think with so much Twilightmania going on I wanted to pay homage to the good old fashioned vampire I remember growing up. Vampires with pointy teeth. Vampires who had no angst just a plain simple love of blood and theatricality! 

The blood splatter brushes come from www.brusheezy.com/brushes/1290-13-blood-and-splatter-brushes.

Illustration Friday - Vanity

This is my submission for the Illustration Friday topic vanity. I'd love some feed back on this as I'm thinking I need to change something about my work. If you have any thoughts on stylistic improvements I'd love to hear them!

Loaded Magazine feature

This is my lastest work for Loaded magazine which documents the worse ways to woo a lady. Quite a lot of fun to do and some of the stories are very very funny. There's always some negative space left for the header and I hope to post a photo of the image as seen in the magazine next month.

Loaded kindly sent me the last illustration I did for them as they'd laid it out in the magazine. It's out in this months issue so get yourself a copy!

IF - Stripes. Work in progress

Try as I might I didn't get around to finishing this weeks IF illustration on Stripes. You'll have to settle for a work in progress unfortunately. I hope you like it!

This is my new logo which I'll be using very soon as my e-mail signiture. I'll be using the ULR from this post to apply the signiture. There are other more technical ways of doing this but I'm not an IT wizard and like to keep things simple. The add on I'll be using is called WiseStamp. It's as easy as copying the ULR into the image finder and clicking ok.

I've been thinking about how to spruce up my illustrations and one avenue was a little photoshoping with textures and brushes. I made a few brushes from an ink splodge and some pastels by following a very helpful tutorial on Bittbox. The textures came from Feodora Umarov’s flickr photostream and the tutorial I followed was on Digital Photography School blog, which was very informative.

I also had a little bash at working in a different style just to stretch myself. I've needed to try something new as it helps me think outside the box. I went a little crazy with the textures but I'm trying to teach myself something a little new.
I know I'm a little late to be doodling Halloween illos but it's in keeping with the above image and it's how I dressed for a Halloween party over the weekend.

My latest IF contribution on the topic scary. My friend has been waxing lyrical about his new 3D TV which is where the idea came from. I hope you like it!
