chromabesque - hours

A painting of one of my original characters. Tried the technique of painting in black and white (grisaille) and then overlay (or glaze) colours on subsequent layers. The ipad app ‘Procreate’ was used to create this painting.

Painting process video can be seen here:



chromabesque - filigree

A painting made on the iPad. This was an enjoyable painting, and I liked the different categories of brushes, such as the calligraphy and the traditional media styles. I chose a vivid colour scheme, with a hint of earthy colours for the background.

Character modelling


A male character model I sculpted. This was a lot of fun to do, and I learned a lot from it. This video by Johnny Rampant: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tMxir6VFy40 was used as a rough guideline in blocking in primitive shapes to form the base body mesh.

The outfit was enjoyable to work on, and I look forward to making more characters, especially in fantasy style attire.

Some 3D modelling, focusing on hair and how it flows in 3D.

chromabesque-grace-progress-shots A piece inspired by ballet, ballroom dancing and eighteenth century fashion. The left leg symbolises the dancer’s stance. Reference used for the shoe and for the dress, to gain inspiration and to understand the style.


Mikhail character design


A design of one of my original characters, Mikhail. This would be his winter wear, and more designs of his daily wear are in progress. As he is a jeweller, the cane and collar piece tie in with his design, though the cane is hardly used in his daily life. Some reference used for trousers and shoes.
