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.

Stormbringer


Quite a dark drawing this one.
A woman in front of a round window, there's a crow on the window ledge outside. In the background, across a stretch of water, there's a cityscape. 
There's lightning in the night sky.
Many thanks to lady-death-stock in Deviantart for allowing me the use of the photo I based the girl on - http://lady-death-stock.deviantart.com/art/NR7-75505584 
and thanks to peroni68 for the crow reference -http://fav.me/d4mldcr
This is an A4 size drawing (29.7 x 21 cm) on 220gsm smooth cartridge paper.
Many grades of pencil ranging from 5H to 6B, a 0.5mm mechanical pencil (2B), tortillions, cotton buds, tissues and erasers.

Leaving



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 where I live.
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 a 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 from3H to 5B, blending stumps, cotton buds, tissues, kneaded & normal erasers.

Nocturnal



This is a drawing I did for Halloween in 2011. 
A female vampire crouching at the waters edge, a full moon in the background with bats flying around it.
Quite a dark drawing.
Many thanks to LinzStock on Deviantart Who's photo the girl is based on >> http://linzstock.deviantart.com/gallery/?catpath=%2F&offset=1320#/d15jrm2 
No reference used for the background.
Size A4, I used HB and 2B mechanical pencils, various other grades of pencil, blending stumps, cotton buds and erasers.
