TV Dinner

Just some random sketches I got round to uploading. I’ve been entirely too busy to even sketch like this now…but there will be more to come in the next few weeks, hopefully.

I’m now using Behance for my personal portfolio, I’ve had an account there for ages but never used it much til now. I like that the focus is more on professional creative design and original work, so I’ll be posting most of my design related projects and other stuff there from now.

Waypoint
Finished this concept last night round ~5:30!  :( I just don’t like leaving things unfinished, especially if it’s something personal. :<

This looks a lot different to the WIP I posted on my facebook; I wanted to use more colour and I found this neat trick on tumblr on how to get a colour palette from MS Paint. It’s pretty handy!

Anyway, the mazes are pretty dodgy but I think they’re still legible…right? Haha. I don’t usually work with so much pastel all in one drawing but this was a fun experiment and it was nice to do something a but different.

Electric

A random concept I finished today! I had a hard time with colours………..and it’s still annoying me. Ah well.

I’m in that phase where I just want to draw non stop….it’s a pretty awesome feeling. Especially when I’ve been feeling so uninspired and lazy lately; I really need to snap out of holiday mode.  :sweat:

Infinite

July 21, 2014

InfiniteSo this started out as another sketch I was going to watercolour, but decided to do digitally instead. I’m glad I went the digital route with this now because I don’t think I could’ve done this traditionally (in the way I imagined anyway).

I’m quite happy with how the golden yellow turned out in this – I was going to go with a typical red and black colour scheme but decided that was too mainstream.  c:


In other random news, check out my new swatches I got from the local hardware store.  B) Yeah I probably looked like a weirdo raiding the entire shelf but it was free and I figured it would be useful for colour scheming. Pooh ball’s watching over them all  :P

Swatches

Actually, the whole reason I went to the hardware store was so my bf and I could make some shelves off the side of my bookcase.  :D They turned out so cute and I now have a dedicated space for my watercolour stuff! I’m just annoyed the brand decided it would be a good idea to attach (rather, GLUE) their barcode stickers on to the brackets so it’s virtually impossible to peel off. I don’t get it, like this is obviously a product which will be used for decorative purposes, and yet they go with some cheap ass sticker labels that cheapify the brand. Not cool.  >x< Shelves

Petals

Petals

I was going to do this in watercolour today, but decided to do it digitally instead. I really like using strokes and lines at the moment, although I drew this concept quite a while ago. Feels good to actually finish it! Based off the robot I drew ages ago (haha looking at this now I really want to redraw that piece too >_>)

I have a whole heap of other concepts to render, I just can’t decide if I want to do them digitally or traditionally…I’m kinda having too much fun with this style at the moment.
