I think I'm done with digital painting. There are a few outstanding commissions that I need to finish up in that style and I will to the best of my ability. The resounding feeling at the moment is one of change. I've worked on my digital painting style for years and in an honest reflection, I'm good but I'm not great. If I ever wanted to be recognised for it I would have seriously have to discover why it is I'm not progressing that well and fundamentally re-teach myself. Something that requires some financial investment and going back to school (maybe if possible).

But the joys of being an illustrator is having 'many strings to your bow'. Last Sunday showed me that, my more bouncy fluid cartoony style seems to be a hit in some fanart cycles which actually gave me the boost to properly pick up my pencil again. So in that vain I'm going to be pouring in my efforts since this is really helping me crawl my way out of a pretty nasty artist block I've had for 9 months. Of course I wont abandon my painted style, that would be idiotic! Its still needed but it needs a serious re-think. I need to 'play' at the moment instead of flogging this dead horse back into life. Sometimes just trying to will something into being only exhausts you.

I'm a general illustration graduate with 5 years industry experience under my belt! and I still class myself a student of art. Children's illustrator by day and fantasy nerd by night, I play draw and write anything mythical. I like my DnD art above all, all from the homebrewed world by me and my friends.
