Another bit of Moomin fan art out of my system!
Let’s have some more Moomin fan art!
My beautiful daughter was born almost a year ago and The Moomins have been a recurring theme in our home since. We were lucky enough to be gifted a beautiful Moomin themed babybox from Finland and in the past couple of months we have been enjoying the original TV series together. As my maternity leave draws to an end, time to dust off the Wacom pen and warm up with some Moomin fan art!
I have vowed to do more painting and drawing in my spare time, this is the first finished piece of that vow! It is based on a drawing I did in April 2015, imaginatively called Dragon No.8
I have learnt that painting feathers is hard…
I absolutely adore the early Spyro the Dragon games, especially Spyro 2: Gateway to Glimmer. I need to practice painting more, so I set my self a challenge of doing a paint over of an original screenshot from Spyro 2. I wanted to create an image of how the game could look if it was recreated using current generation graphics.
The original Spyro series was created by Insomniac Games and I highly recommend everyone to play them! 😀
Finally got a colour version of Wurm done. It was an interesting process starting with a grey scale image and worrying about the colours afterwards. It certainly helped me try and focus on trying to get the tonal values right.
I recently played the video game Ryse. I enjoyed it so much I had an urge to draw a little bear themed soldier 😛 I scanned my sketch in and finally got round to working on it. I created this value painting using a Wacom Cintiq 13HD which was kindly lent to me by a friend for the weekend. It was really interesting to use and made line work much easier.
I would like to refine this guy a little bit more in the near future. Try and design an interesting motif for his shield and add some colour!
