Hello again!
I recently got asked by Bizarre magazine to do some illustrations for an article about pony play.
The brief was "sexy but humourous", so just the kind of stuff I love doing! Here are a couple of example pics, but if you want to see the rest you'll have to buy the magazine (although you should be buying it anyway cos it's great!)

Oil painting.
Techniques and skills passed down from master to apprentice over the course of centuries, encompassing some of the most beautiful, revered and inspiring art ever created.

Three paintings in, and I'm drawing dirty little minxes with a glint in their eyes.
There is no hope for me.

I've finally managed to find some time to start trying to learn how to paint.
Just baby steps at the minute (hence the monochrome), I'm going to concentrate on just learning how to push paint around before I start in on colour mixing etc.
Here are a couple of oil paint sketches from photo ref:

From a photo in a fashion mag; my very first (ever!) finished oil paint sketch

This one is from a photo of the Swedish lovely Christina Lindberg. I'm pretty pleased with how this one turned out. probably about 3 hours work.

Don't worry though, i'll be back to drawing pervy stuff soon!

I've decided to try and get back into non-digital painting with actual paint and stuff, and as part of that process I'm reading the excellent Alla Prima by Richard Schmidt (thanks to Jake for the heads up)

One of the (many!) things he talks about it trying to get a painting right from the get go, painting each section correctly as you go along. One of the benefits of this (he says) is that you can stop at any point and you'll have a technically correct painting. As I normally work completely differently than this; scribbling about initially and then slowly building up and improving as I go I thought I'd give this method a try. I think it can only really apply when drawing from life/reference, as unless you can perfectly and correctly picture your final image in your head before you begin then you've got nothing to paint!

Obviously this is still digital, but I'm at work so what can I do!

done a bit more work on this one:
