Dean Sidwell art's YouTube channel - www.youtube.com/user/deansidwe…



works in progress
Here's a preview of one of the pieces I'm working on at the moment. This is titled Stargazer.
It's a bit different to some of my stuff and I'm enjoying experimenting and working with colour pencils at the moment.
It's one of the largest drawings I've worked on for a while too, at size A2.


Work in progress: Stargazer - WIP 4 by DeanSidwellArt
Work in progress pic of a large colour pencil drawing I'm working on. 
Still quite a bit of work to do on it, but it's getting there.


This is a large A2 sized drawing (420 x 594mm). 
I'm using Derwent Coloursoft pencils, a few Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils and a white watercolour pencil for the stars and highlights.

Many thanks to Lady-Death-Stock :iconlady-death-stock:  for the reference the girl is based on - lady-death-stock.deviantart.co…



Another work in progress piece is this mixed media piece pictured below.

Work in progress: Peter Capaldi - Doctor Who by DeanSidwellArt
Based on the british sci fi show Doctor Who, it's a drawing of the Doctor played by Peter Capaldi.
This will be part colour and part black & white.
It was originally going to have a colour pencil background but I decided to use acrylic paint instead.


You can see more work in progress pics of both of these and more WIPs at my website - 
deansidwellart.weebly.com/work…



All the best to everyone and thanks! :)

Hi everyone.
Sorry for being away from here again lately! I've had all sorts of crazy stuff happening recently and my life has had a lot of changes.
Everything is good now though.
I moved home a few weeks ago, took a while to get everything sorted but I'm all settled now. Been doing business courses and working hard on business planning stuff at the same time too, so not had a lot of time to myself.
Everything is done now and things are going well!  
I'm now doing lots of drawing and will have something new to show you this week. Nearly finished my drawing of Alex Lifeson from the Rock band Rush (2nd part of the trio of drawings featuring the band members).
Working on other stuff too including a charity project, will let you know more about that as soon as I can.

Thanks very much for your continuing support of my art and thanks to my new watchers and everyone that has faved and commented on my work!
I will get around to answering all your comments and messages as soon as poss.



featuring your art

This is a small feature for the people who replied to my last journal and poll I put on here.
I asked you to show me your art, so here's the art you asked to be featured.

SORRY FOR BEING AWAY FOR SO LONG!

Tue Feb 5, 2013, 3:11 AM




Hi everyone.
Just want to say sorry for being away from Deviantart for so long!
I've had a bit of a difficult time with things and been very down in myself because of things happening around me. I wasn't very active on-line at all for ages, I've found it hard to talk and communicate to people too.
Part of it is that my Grandfather's health is getting worse, we have to look after him 24-7, I don't  get much sleep sometimes. I'm very close to my Grandad and it's hard seeing his health fading away from him.
There's been other things happening too that haven't been good recently and with everything Iv'e been very low in myself.  
I lost my motivation for drawing for quite some time too, but I've got myself together again now, I feel much better about things and I've dug myself out of that hole I was in.

I want to say a big thank you to you all for your comments, faves, watches and your support while I've been away, I appreciate it so much!!
I have a lot of catching up to do on DA, I will do my best to replying to my messages and comments as soon as I can. I may not be able to thank everyone individually for their faves but I want you all to know they mean a lot and I THANK YOU SO MUCH for them all.
I will  get back to doing a features sometime this week too.


I started drawing again about a week ago, and enjoying it again.
Been working on finishing my Amy Lee drawing and it's almost done now. I decided to do something a little different with it, it was previously all graphite and had a dark background, I erased the dark background and have added colour to the drawing.  It's part colour and part black & white now, I hope you will like what I've done.
-----------------------------------------------------------------
UPDATE - I decided to scrap the Amy Lee drawing. I really was not happy with how it was going! I kept experimenting with it and it was turning into a bit of a mess.

I did complete the drawing of Geddy Lee from the band RUSH. You can see the finished drawing here - Geddy Lee by DeanSidwellArt
This is part one of three drawings, I will be working on part 2 soon which will be the guitarist Alex Lifeson.  
-----------------------------------------------------------------
Thanks again everyone for all your support!
It's good to be back! :)

Hi everyone, hope you are all well!
I just want to apologise for my absence recently.
I've got lots of messages and things to answer on here, I will try to get around to answering them all as soon as I can. I would also like to thank my new watchers, I really appreciate everything!

I've been going through a bit of a rough patch personally and had difficult things to deal with at home. I've been very low and down because of it all but I'm much better in myself now and things are going ok and I'm feeling much more positive about things.

I won't go into too much detail about what's been going on but part of it is because of my ill Grandfather. A while ago we had to have him move into our house because he is unable to look after himself, he is very ill and needs 24 hour supervision, there's several things wrong with him and the sad thing is that he will not get better. It's been very hard on me and the rest of the family. I'm very close to my Grandad and I've found it all very hard to deal with.
We are managing better now, we have routines and outside help and friends and family have been wonderful.

Thanks for being patient with me, I should be more active around here again now.
I stopped drawing because of all what's been happening but I'm back to it now, so hopefully will have something finished for you to see soon.
I will get a new Showcase feature done this week and will also get around to answering my messages and the stuff I've fallen behind on.
  
Thank you for reading and thanks for everything! :)

Wishing you all the best,
Dean.
