I've spent the past few days working on different styles and techniques, using more traditional materials (graphite sticks, water colour and pencils). It's been a while since I've done work like this, but it makes a nice change to staring at my screen. We've been having a fair bit of rain recently, and Mr. Bear sums up my thoughts exactly.

I've been busy this week practicing textures. It's been tricky, but I think I'm starting to get somewhere with them. I'm getting a little better with 'outdoor' colours too. I think I need to improve my colour contrasts, but I've been staring at this piece for so long it's getting hard to tell. Will revist this piece, as I really want to add it to my portfolio. Note to self: add more leaves.
I'm also thinking about setting up a Twitter account, as I'm not sure many people use blogger. So next month I might just have an account...
Oh, and here's the original sketch and close-up:

Hello everyone and Happy New Year! As it was my friend birthday on the 5th (and mine tomorrow!), I've decided to do a sample of monsters at a birthday party. You may remember the monsters from a previous sample, but this time Croc has been turned orange, as he didn't fit the background. I was trying to make my work more colourful, and I think I've managed it. Next I need to work on putting textures into my work, which is something I'm a little wary of, because I don't want it to look too over the top, or bad...We'll see.
Expect many new characters (and the return of a few old ones) this year. Aiming to do a new sample every week, which will be uploaded on a Tuesday. So, until next Tuesday....
