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.

Preview of some upcoming drawings.


Work in progress of a commissioned dog portrait - Alice.
The person I'm doing this for has very kindly been given permission to show you the progress of this drawing. Still much to do, shading blending and fine details will be done next, then it should really start to come together.
I'm enjoying drawing it and it's nice to be drawing an animal for a change.
It's quite large, drawn on size A3 smooth Bristol board.
So far I've used HB and 2B mechanical pencils.
I'm still trying to do bits on my other drawings in between doing it but mainly concentrating on this at the moment.

 This is another of the pieces that I'm working on, just doing bits on this in between other drawings. Quite a lot still to do on it yet.
Reference for this comes from SaligiaStock on Deviantart - http://saligiastock.deviantart.com/
I liked the contrast from dark to light. The black in the background really is that dark, I've gone through so much pencil lead doing it so far.
It's drawn on A4 220gsm smooth cartridge paper, so far using HB, 2B mechanical pencils(0.5mm) and 5B pencil.

I've not been too well recently and drawing progress has been slow, sorry for not keeping my blog updated,  but I'm much better now and am back in the swing of things.

Have not gotten round to finishing the Geddy Lee drawing that I showed you in my last post but plan to get it finished during this week.
