Some Fings

Here's a few things I've been tinkering with. Another foray into the unforgiving world of colour. The car doesn't look like it'll make it:

Drawing hands is most hard. I thought I better do a few studies to try and be less awful at 'em.


This a photo of a ship breaking yard that I tweaked and painted into:

Ha thats insane coincidence nick! I am working on a robot yard piece at the moment too and its a foray into working from an initial photograph! Spooky. Lovely hands mate. The blue in the car jump piece is ace but the green feels a little off. It is sketchies on sat will try and Skype after mate.

Nicholas you are ON FIRE at the moment. Loving the jumpy car one. By another strange coincidence I have also been drawing hands to practice, but in my case they don't look so much like hands.

Excellent dump. Some very sweet stuff.

Nick Carver said...

Thanks guys!

Jake: I think it's the Hawken excitement that's doing it! Yeah, I always have trouble balancing greens, do I need more blues in there? More yellows and oranges? I dunno... Can't do Skype on Sat I'm afrid but should be about on Sunday morning.

Dan: I hate drawing hands - most of mine end up looking like a bag of spanners, especially when I work completely from my head. I think I might just draw those little legoman hands at the ends of everyone's wrists from now on!

Roland: Cheers! Great work on your blog!

Strong stuff, the last image is a bit confusing in it's composition though! I'm not claiming im some sort of master by the way, still a student, and otherwise great work! You said colour was unforgiving, do you say that because you're new to it or something? I can't tell

Cool stuff. Love the first image and the leaf blower guy in the next post. Keep it up.
