Here is the preliminary sketch of my new piece I'm working on. I'm trying not to rely on black outline, so I sketched in colour. My intention is then to paint it up and use darker tones to 'edge' and 'outline' the image if needed. I do this with my environment paints so I'm not sure why its hard when I draw a character...habit I guess.

Here is another attempt at a senic speed paint with a kinda medievil/fastasy vibe. Not bad, it didnt take too long either. Im not especially happy with the castle type structure, it has too much of a Disneyland vibe, I may revisit when I know what i'll do with it as im trying to lay off the idle tinkering and work more decisively.

I nearly forgot to add this. This a development sheet I did before I did the 'Dragon Morning' image. It was just so I didnt have to design the thing on the fly whilst dealing with a more complex composition. Just so as you know this, along with all images here a) if you click on 'em you get nice bigger versions and b) they are all copyright to me.

This is a pic that was inspired by the book 'Eragon' there is a scene where Eragon waked up to find his 'puppy' dragon playing in his room. This was the most ambitious pic i've did to date. It was a bit of a headache at times but I think it paid off
Now this Blog is up to date i'll be posting WIP's (work in progress) pieces as well as final work. Hopefully this will prove to be a visual guide of my journey as frustrating as it will be at times.
This is paint I did after watching a Gnomon tutorial DVD on Matte Painting, Not quite film quality :) but I like it all the same. I must give some more of these a go. Painted straight in Photoshop (PS i'll refer to it from now on) with a wacom tablet.
