Iron Man!!

Iron Man has to be one of the coolest superheroes in existence! I mean come on..anybody would love to have his suit or even be Tony Stark!!

Because he's such a cool character I decided to do a portrait of him.Ive drawn a full body drawing of Iron Man in the past and he's an extremely difficult character to draw with the amount of detail in this armoured suit! .....BUT! I like a challenge so I went for it!

Overall Im extremely pleased with how this turned out and I think the shading and lighting effects I added afterwards on Photoshop for the eyes and chest light really brought it to life!.

Hope you guys like it!

Green Goblin Portrait!

I drew a portrait of Green Goblin a while ago and because I've been so busy working in Bristol I haven't had much time to do my own personal work or colour this up.

Im really looking forward to the new Spider Man film 'The Amazing Spider Man 2' and looking forward to seeing what villains are going to take on spidey! Theres rumours that they are going to bring the Sinister Six into the series which could be good! To lead up to the films release I'm thinking about doing portraits of these six super villains. I decided to base it on the original design from the comic books!

I'm really happy with this portrait and am looking forward to doing the rest of them soon!


This was created by first sketching out the design on paper





I then lined it up on Illustrator and added block colours and some shadow




To finish off the portrait I then transferred it into Photoshop where I added some more shadows to add depth to areas of the character.

Goodbye 2013! And Happy New Year!


What a year 2013 has been! It’s easily the best year of my life so far! So many good things have happened for me this year I don’t know where to begin! It’s just the beginning of a new and exciting time in my life and who knows what next year will bring.
At the start of the year I turned the big 21 but still have the sense of humour of a child! Finishing my degree and graduating with 1st class honours in BA Animation has to be the main highlight for sure. After leaving uni in search for my 1st job in the animation industry I was asked to work for Blue zoo in London, living up there for 3 weeks! Which was a great experience! After that I finally past my drive test after failing to do so twice before! Took me over a year but I passed in the end and now have my own rocket ship! I joined a new footy team as well as winning young player of the year for Machen 2nds! In November I got the chance to finally see the mighty Manchester United play for the 1st time against Cardiff City. In October I got see one of my favourite bands live ,the Finnish rockers ‘H.I.M”. In other news my childhood hero David Beckham hung up his boots as well as the greatest manager of all time Sir Alex Ferguson retired after an amazing career. OH and I got a new hairy brother called Buster :D!........Anyway
I’d like to thank all my amazing friends and family who made it a year to remember! I LOVE YOU ALL!! I wonder what 2014 will bring? Hopefully it will be just as action packed as this year, maybe even better!?
So Happy New Year for tonight guys, I hope the New Year brings you good luck and happiness!

Peace out!

Francisco Scaramanga...The man with the golden gun!

If you're a Bond fan then you'll know this villain from the film 'The Man With The Golden Gun'. Francisco Scaramanga the assassin with a gun made of gold.After doing Count Dooku who is played by Christopher Lee I decided to use the same design to create another character he portrays.The great thing is I can use this now for all sorts of different characters which were played by him, for example Dracula and Saruman from the Lord Of The Rings films.

New Animation Studio Opening In My Old School

A few weeks ago I was invited to be involved in the opening of a brand new animation studio in my old school St Martins Comprehensive. They are hoping this will encourage more young people to get into animation.When I was studying Art and Design in 6th form, I didn't have any of these facilities or the technology they have now, such as Macbooks or even an animation room . I could barely use Photoshop!
I think it's brilliant that my old school can now give students the opportunity to create their own animations. It's very exciting to see young students who are interested in animation, and its even better now that they have the equipment to do it.

I was very proud to be asked to part of it! Thank you Mr Latham!

New Business Idea! T-Shirt Graphics!

I haven't posted any work on here in so long! One reason is because i've been so busy doing work for companies and I can't upload any of this work onto my blog yet until its officially been released for the  public to see! So to all the people who thought i'd flown to the other side of the universe..don't worry i'm still on earth!!

I've been busy doing a number of backgrounds and character work, and when I am able to I will put the work up on here for you to see what ive been up to!

As for my own personal work..
I've started getting back into doing my own work again when I'm not doing work for a company.I have come up with a great idea that i've been thinking about doing for years now which is having my own graphics business.The idea is that I will make cartoon graphics which can be used for art on t shirts as well as anything else I can think of.

I've been very excited about starting this for a while now and it's something I can keep doing while i'm  not working for a client or in my spare time .I plan to create another website which will feature these graphics on and these will be available to buy on that site.As its early days yet I have done about 3 pages of rough ideas for graphics.Once my websites up and running with about 10 designs on Ill post the link on here for you guys to check that out!

Peace out...for now!!!
