In this video I show you how I created my drawing “Companionship” in coloured pencil in a fully voiced-over format. Still getting used to talking to an imaginary audience but I guess I’ll get there with practice!
Editing blooper! I didn’t notice there were repeated lines in my audio until after I had uploaded to youtube. Thought I had deleted them all before processing my video! Hopefully I get better at using Adobe Premiere with time xD

Just a small update this week. I’m on the home stretch with Jack and Jess’s portrait now! I should hopefully be finished by the end of next week. Still recording my progress on this drawing, then I’ll have over 116gb (20+ hours!) of footage to edit down for youtube. I will be uploading my first… Continue reading The Home Stretch
Today I started work on a coloured pencil commission of two very sweet and loving dogs, Jess (on the left) and Jack (on the right). These two sweethearts belong to a friend’s mum so I’ve had the pleasure of meeting them multiple times now! I’ve been looking forward to this drawing for a while! Just… Continue reading Jess and Jack: Coloured Pencil commission work in progress
I’ve been in a bit of an art slump recently after accidentally throwing tea all over this commission and having to start on it all over again! I hate it being so delayed (It was meant to be a Christmas gift! D: ) but now that I pushed through my slump and finished it, in a way I’m glad I spilt tea on the old version despite my embarassment. I think the portrait turned out for the better in the end! I really love this piece, I think the sheen on Mini’s fur came out really well without being too obtrusive. 🙂
Tools used: Caran d’Ache Grafwood pencils, AIN 4B 0.5mm lead, one Faber Castell 9000 8B pencil, Fabriano Artistico HP Watercolour Paper
Where has all the daylight gone! My desk can’t hold any more lamps and it’s still not light enough! This has to be my least favourite part of winter. It’s always so dark. Roll on, spring! Been steadily working on my current commission of Chando the ridgeback. It’s 21 x 29cm (a tiny bit smaller… Continue reading Chando work in progress
Last week I finished a graphite portrait of a gorgeous, sweet old dog called Moses as a gift for my client’s sister. Now that she’s seen it and it’s been sent off to Germany, I’ve been given the go-ahead to show it to you all! 🙂 I had a lot of fun with this one,… Continue reading “Moses” Finished Portrait Commission and Progress

Just a quick update on this guy – I’m roughly 60% of the way through now. Got all of my base colours down minus the metal on the collar. Now that I know where all the markings and shadows need to go it’s just adding detail everywhere and fleshing out all the fur. 🙂 I’m… Continue reading German Shepherd Portrait Update: The Home Stretch!
