Came across a'photobucket' web page of the wife and our dog? So i thought I could put an image of him up here. It was drawn using Karismacolor pencil. Drawn from a photo I used it on the back of the Christmas card. Yogi came to us from a rescue centre and had been poorly looked after before that. His ears have been mutilated. The Australian Kelpie has large pointed ears that stand proud, Yogi's look like a bears now, hence the name Yogi (bear).

Lift Off.

Here is the picture that I got accepted into the Guild of Aviation Artists 2009 show.
Depicting the launch of the Saturn 5, Apollo 11 mission. Because of the 40 year anniversary I wanted to try and capture the event in a slightly different way. Here we are part of the crowd watching the event. I hoped to try and draw us into the picture wanting to be able to be part of the moment, the history. I suppose that with such a momentus event it was always going to be hard.

Photoshop girl portrait.

This is another test using a photo my mate Taf took. ( I thought the lighting was great on it and hope to be able to capture that with the brush tool in Photoshop. By zooming in and out the detail can be increased. However this can upset the overall composition.

Please feel free to add comments of thoughts you may have. Thanks John.

Dr Who

This was a test using Photoshop. I took quite a long time doing it as I wanted to see how close to my reference I could get. Always good to have a nice image to start with.
