Happy bank holiday! We FINALLY have some sunshine here in the UK. Compared to last year the weather has been awful, but this weekend has been glorious.
I’m working on something a bit different at the moment at the moment.
I hadn’t been playing with Affinity as much recently, but I’ve seen a few amazing pieces recently and wanted to get back into it.
I thought, “oh I really must post before July ends” only to see a Hello August! post on my Instagram feed.
For Christmas my brother got me a book on graphic and illustration from the art deco era. I wanted to work on proportion and scale, and generally speeding up a little bit.
In general I think I’m getting better at making the initial sketch part more accurate and speedy. It’s still taking me a very long time in general though. Is that something other people find when using pencils too?
Sorry for the bad picture quality. I feel like I should take more care with the overall image quality and aesthetic of these posts, but I really wanted to make sure it was quick and easy to post, otherwise I just don’t trust myself to update.
I’ll post when I’ve worked on the picture a little more.
Ok, I’ve done a little more. It’s amazing how long things take, but hey at least I’m making time that I wouldn’t have otherwise.
Almost finished! What next? Maybe some practise with paint?
