The Roberts siblings - Dai and Mia
I was planning something and so needed to make a height guide of them as little kids and then that sprouted an idea for a little comic so I made the second age set and decided to do their current age for the sake of it and decided to show it here for some reason in case anyone is interested ^^;
I really love these two, they bicker and all that but they have such a close bond with the other - I just really like they're relationship :)
I really hope you like it :)
characters and sketches belong to me
Some portraits :D
petit prince Llew
This is from an earlier post, that I said I wouldn't work on further but then my hand slip and went further, but I stopped at just the face, I really don't think I'll carry it on any further XD Unless my hand slips again
I wanted to draw a proper portrait of Llew and I tried to show the less arrogant side of Llew
I don't draw her enough recently and I need to make that right! Just a little portrait of her and that I used for one of my business card designs :D She works really well on them :D
Llew's father - Thomas Llewelyn(Otherwise better known as Tomo)
This guy is Llew dad (and in turn Ozzy's grandfather) Their family is a little complicated so I wont go into too much detail ^^; Yeah but I've been working on developing this guy recently, he is very bright and intelligent, didn't have a set profession but liked doing lots of different jobs. He's a good mix of Llew and Ozzy (or should I say that Ozzy and Llew are a good chunk of Tomo) Thomas is Welsh and his name is pronounced with a 'oh' sound instead of the 'ah'- Did this because I needed a explanation to why on Earth Llew has a welsh name >.<; Yeah so back to Tomo, Llew would have had a much better life had he been raised up by Tomo, but unfortunately he was killed pretty much on the same day as Llew was born. He was in his mid-fifties.
On an artistic standpoint it was to try and draw/paint and older person and to try and show a family resemblance with out being same facey~
I really hope you all like them :D
I'm really really sorry for being M.I.A for most of the summer - I'll do a proper update tomorrow as well as post some other sketches
I have no idea where I was going with this but it went too far DX - it started with the Dai&Mia and Hideaki&Kaida ones and so decided to add the others and try to make some sense to it. . . so here goes

I'm in the middle of making comic examples, but got distracted by football ^^; Did this pretty much last night but it's taken me this long to upload it XD
Dai prefers Rugby by a long shot, but he will pretty much always support his home nations.
I tried to keep it as quick as possible so that I could practice making it as expressive as possible, I'm also really sorry about my terrible hand writing ^^; Hope it's understandable enough :) I quite like how it's turned out and I'll keep on practicing :D
Characters are Alaine, Dai, Mia and Ethan (and the pillow is Mr.Urdd - mascot for a kids organisation ^^)
Hope you all like it :D
I need to redesign my business cards, I'm going to have 2 this time, one for portrait work and the other for more illustrative work, the last design was too cramped, and didn't show any of the work off ^^; So having two separate cards with full illustration would display them individually better. For the portrait one it's simply going to be a portrait but here are the things I've come up with for the other card :D
1. the pose needs to be corrected before I start it I know, the pose is more complex than no.2 and so it pushes my ability but I don't like the gold effect in this one and it hasn't turned out quite it would in my head.
2. this is the gold effect I was kinda looking for and the general feel but the pose is a bit simple and stuff (I'm definitely going to finish one of these two off)
3. Kinda different one to the others, I like the idea and that the glowy bits and the dress are nice, but there's something about it I'm not happy with, but I don't know what.
4. (not sure what Ozzy's doing but he's doing it) Other than Ozzy turning out angryer looking than I intended, I quite like it - but it did make me realise that I need to practice perspective and foreshortening more because this became quite tricky DX
I like 2 and 4 the most but I'mm not 100% sure if they're appropriate for business cards.
I was inspired by the gift art I made for Dianote. To have the main image in black and white and then have some colour and have that piece being in gold/shiny foil, I thought it could work well for a business card and make them stand out or would have a full coloured one be better?
I hope you all like them and any feed back would be welcomed :D
