My Bio
I'm a video game designer at a studio in Cambridge, UK.
I joined the industry in 2006 as an environment artist, but found this left me with little energy or inclination to pursue art in my spare time so I moved into a design role.
Now I'm enjoying working on my own small art projects at home, trying to improve my skills - particularly when it comes to digital painting. :)
I'm here to learn so I love to get feedback on my work!

Cards

So, anyone who reads this, w

So very busy...But still painting and doodling a bit here and there :) Found my bottle of indian ink, so the painted cards I've been making now look a lot crisper and richer.  :D This makes me happy. I keep thinking I'll paint something bigger than just birthday cards in this style, too.  It'd probably work well.

Looking at the stuff I've drawn lately aaaaand... I'm starting to think I was right when I always told people 'I'm not an artist, I just like drawing'. I'm pleased with the improvements to my technique over the last few months, but really - as complete images, my drawings are entirely underwhelming.   I should work on that.
