What have I been working on this week??

So each week, I will post a few samples of the stuff I have been working on for you all to see, I will try talk a little about what has been going on with my art and new techniques I am trying etc.

So this week has been fairly busy, but I have still knocked out a few pieces of art.

First up is colours on the Batgirl Inks I posted last week (here) This was a lot of fun to work on, I was really trying to set a sort of eerie mood with the moon behind her. I really wanted to get some nice lighting effects. Tell me what you think! (for some reason the background gradients do not show up a nicely on this page as they do on my Facebook or DeviantArt - not sure why??)

Next up, I did some inks on an awesome Harley Quinn, pencilled by Randy Green. I have been really getting into and enjoying inking recently, and I am really working at improving. I do all of my inking digitally using my trust MacBook pro (soon to be upgraded...) and my Wacom Intuos 4. Check it out and comment any tips or tricks to improve, I would love to hear suggestions.

Next up, I have some pencils I have down for a Halo image I am working. A friend of mine asked me to do a picture of Master Chief for him, and since my son is also Halo mad, I figured I might be able to finish it off and turn it into a print for his wall too. To be honest I have no clue about Halo, so with the help of google and my five year old, I gave it a go.

At the moment, I feel pencilling is probably the area I am in need of the most practice, so I will be working hard on it over the coming weeks. Make sure you check out how I am going.
