30th November '11

I've not been particularly productive on the art front lately. Both nights and days are dark and I still feel tired after the cold I had two weeks ago. So now I'm kind of just waiting for the Christmas holidays so that I can sleep, because it's going to be a very busy month coming up... fun, but busy.

This picture is something that I started a year ago. It's on A2 paper (42x59cm), which will be the second largest illustrative piece I've done. It's also not something I'd usually draw. I have very limited knowledge of guns, helicopters or apocalyptic scenarios, and there's a distinct lack of flowers anywhere. But I guess we'll see where it goes.

The worst part about being ill, after the bit where everything hurts, is the fact that even when you're stuck in bed off from work... you can't actually do anything with the time. You just sort of sleep... then wake up feeling rubbish, and try and think of something to do that doesn't involve moving, effort, or focusing your eyes too much. So here's a bit of painting I did last week before I got ill... or had Skyrim. Back to bed now and hope that I feel better in the morning.

There's this painful bit just after inking when all the energy from the rough pencil lines is lost. Hopefully I can add it back during the colouring stage.

Finally completed this one. The original sketch file saved on my PC is dated the 1st of December 2010... so... that's nearly a year ago ^^;
But it is almost accurately seasonal now I guess.
Original is alcohol based marker and coloured pencil on A3 Bristol Board.
