Hugh Laurie Oil Paintng

No major reason why I made this painting of Hugh Laurie. I think He's funny is all. I was gien a gift of Oil  Paints (expensive ones) I had tried them out before and I realised I was fairly crap at using them. But I was never a fan of wasting anything so I said I'd given them another go. Now I love using oilpaints. They're far more challenging but.....worth it!

Janelle Monae Digital Drawing

I have a girl crush of Janelle Monae and her style. I could never pull it off because I would just look...It just would't work for me! I made this in about 2 hours using my tablet. I'm getting the hack of using it, I think. Will keep practicing anyway cos I want to improve.
HOPE YA'LL LOIKE IT!

Digitalism Little Tablet

I got a wee tablet a few months agofrom ebay. I didn't know how to use it so I got the most cheap as chips one I could get. It rounded off to about 40 euro in total hich wasn't bad, I thought. I have bee experimenting since and have made a few along my journey of digital artypants. Here's a few I've done so far. Some of these were asked for and others just for some fun and practice.

My First Celebrity Client

I hadn't been paying much attention to Twitter ad rarely used it to promote my artwork aymore. I posted about 2 things a month really. My Mum had bought me a little sketch book so I usually brong it around with me and doodle whereever I can.

I hadbee a fan of Lauren Socha whoplays Kelly from the Misfits since I saw her in 'The Unloved' by Samantha Morton. I also saw her in a short film 'A scummy Man'. Terrific underrated actress. I tweeted a quick sketch I did of her and she loved it so got in contact with me to do a painting off her nephew.
I loved the fact she typed her emails in the way she would normally talk.

Nice!
