My photo
Hi there and welcome to my blog! I'm a traditional artist from the UK. I specialise in detailed pencil drawings. I draw many things, including people and portrait drawings, gothic and fantasy art, animals, landscapes, fan art and more. On this blog I will post all my latest finished drawings. I will also keep you updated with work in progress pictures of the latest art that I am working on and keep you informed with any news regarding me and my artwork.

Latest finished drawing

Leaving.


My latest finished drawing.
This is a little bit different to my other drawings. It's quite a emotional drawing. The girl has tears running down her face, She's got her hand on her heart and there are storm clouds in the sky. She is faced with someone she loves leaving her for good. 
She knows that she can never get back what she had and is faced with the sadness of a future without him.

The old building in the background is Tamworth Castle, which is actually in the town near to where I live and I’ve been wanting to put it in one of my drawings for a while.
Many thanks goes to Alraunie-stock on deviantart for the reference of the girl! Here’s the link to the original stock photo - [link] I changed it a quite lot, I added a jacket, long hair,changed the dress and more.

Size is A3 (297mm x 420mm)..
I used HB & 2B mechanical pencil (0.5mm), various other grades of pencil ranging from 3H to 5B, blending stumps, cotton buds, tissues, kneaded & normal erasers.

Three quick drawings


Three quick drawings that I did
  
On my Facebook page, for a couple of days,  I asked people to suggest something for me to draw  as a quick drawing, I then drew it that day.
They are not nearly as detailed as most of my drawings due to being done in a short space of time. 


Here are the three quick drawings that I did.

Latest work in progress.

This is the drawing that I’m working on at the moment, still got lots to do to this.
It’s a little bit different to my celebrity portraits. 
I used a stock photo on Deviantart from Alraunie-stock - http://alraunie-stock.deviantart.com/ as a  rough reference for the girl, but have changed it quite a lot, I added a jacket, long hair,changed the dress and more.
The old building in the background is Tamworth Castle, which is actually in the town near to where I live and I’ve been wanting to put it in one of my drawings for a while.
Lots of stuff still to do to this(including that hand), still looking a bit rough at the moment but I’m hoping to get it finished soon.
Also got a couple of celebrity portraits that I need to get finished, will get them done after this drawing is complete.

I’m drawing again.

I’ve started drawing again after a very difficult start to the year.
The last couple of months have been tough for me and with everything that went on I couldn’t really concentrate on my artwork, but things are getting a bit better and I’m enjoying drawing again. 
I started a new drawing a few days ago, something a little bit different, hope you will like it.
Also got a couple of portraits that I need to get finished, will get them done after my latest drawing is complete.
Thanks everyone for being patient with me! :)
