Digital Painting – Gromit

Nothing too exciting, I just wanted to do something a little more simple after my Regina Spektor image.

As usual I recorded the process and uploaded it to YouTube:

Digital Painting – Regina Spektor

Regina Spektor
I chose this image because I thought it would be pretty quick and simple – it’s black and white, there’s not much hair, and so on.  But I ended up spending much more time on it than I expected, mostly because of what little hair there is.  I got frustrated with it and stopped working for a few weeks, but eventually came back to it and finished it up.

Again I recorded my screen while working on this image.  I uploaded the video to my YouTube channel:

Not all of this video is played at the same speed – the parts where I’m drawing hair were sped up the most because they are the least interesting parts (just fiddling around on small details).

Digital Painting - Leonardo DiCaprio

I've finished a new digital painting, this one is of Leonardo DiCaprio.  The reference image I used was from a scene near the start of the movie Inception.

I was going to add a background to this image but, like with most of my images, I got sick of working on it towards the end and didn't feel like adding one in.  I kind of like how it looks on a white background though.  I might come back to it at a later stage and add something nicer in.

As previously, I recorded my screen while working on this image.  I've uploaded the video to my YouTube account:

The Inception soundtrack has some great songs, but I don't think any of them really suit this sort of video.  Hopefully it doesn't detract from it too much!  Also, I've added a little surprise at the end of the video.  Enjoy.  ;)

Digital Painting - Ke$ha

I recently finished a picture of the singer Ke$ha.  I was only using a low resolution reference image, so it was just going to be for a bit of practise.  But I liked how it was looking and decided to spend some more time on it.

I really hate drawing hair, and I'm not terribly happy with how it turned out.  There are some other small details I could have added (freckles, etc), but I just got too annoyed with it after the hair.

 I also recorded myself while working on this.  I've uploaded the video to YouTube:

I added a Ke$ha song to the video, but I'm not sure how YouTube will deal with that.  I might take the song off and upload it again, or let it sit for a few days.  Either way, enjoy!

I had also attempted this image in greyscale a few months ago, but abandoned it.  For the fun of it, here is the progress I had made on the earlier version.

First Post!


I'm going to use this blog as a centralised place to post various images and videos I've created.

A quick set of links to the various websites I upload my stuff to and what they contain.

I'll also post some of my older stuff below.
