New Year, No Fear....

Thats right people, 2007 is here, hope everyone had a good time welcoming in the new year and "learning" from the old. I definately learnt alot about myself over the last 2 weeks. I've seen a lot of blogs, with so many talented, hardworking and confident artists. Realising how high the levels are out there began to affect me big time. I just started looking at my work and loathing it. Became very concious and just didn't really feel like drawing. Don't wanna go into too much detail but the b-line is, (through much soul searching) I'm glad to be me, and I like the way I draw. Don't get me wrong, this ain't self indulgence. I have so much more to learn, and need to make vast improvements before I consider myself good but I'm realising or remembering that it's important to find the things in your drawings that you do like. It's important to have confidence but not arrogance. I think me starting this blog is probably the 2nd best thing I did last year (1st doing the animation course). I'm really excited and can't wait to see who I'll be in a year. Ok, enough talk, more drawings. LET 2007 BEGIN!!!!

And again....

PS Just wanna thank Tim McCourt (for making me aware of blogs) and (Kristian Antonelli for giving me the push to actually start it) Check their blogs out....

Conflicting angles and perspective on the chair methinks.....


Drew this in the X ray room at Barking Hospital, I added the greys in photoshop, got the idea from Kristian. He seems to make it look so natural and spontaneous. Anywho, I think I got some of the shadows wrong. Next time I'll take notes so I can put the shadows down properly....
