Always watching me do work either side of my tablet.
30 minute imagination sketch. I’ve been working on some other things lately, and they’re really testing my skill levels. Making me irritable. So trying to wind down this evening with something I know how to do.
Painted for the scottish hardcore/metal band Revulsion and their EP cover titled “Born Into Suffering”

I’m still immensly happy with how this piece turned out, still the hardest painting I’ve had to do to date.
Got some new glasses. Repping the Tortoiseshell.

Imagination sketch. I’ve been forcing myself to draw without being reliant on reference lately. There’s some things that I know I need to work on, but overall. I’m happy that I’m starting to be able to do things from my head.
Last study of the day.

Fast forward to DeviantArt on 03 July 2014 and, alongside the usual requests to draw bizarre fetish scenarios for very little money, I receive a notice that some fella operating under the username JimsNerdNation has been taking credit for the work of many artists - myself included - and even selling for a profit. They included a link to a YouTube video that opens, I see, with a familiar yet different image.
