Painting


A simple painting I did of one of my characters with the use of fineliner and water colour. I used a fair bit of water to give the work less control, causing the inks to bleed around the paper. This in turn gave the work a sense of unease which I had intended to create through the subject matter. I also avoided over-doing the colour palette so that certain areas contrasted more than others e.g The red of the mouth and the contrast of the subtle greys against the purple sky.

Drawing


Another fineliner drawing I did with the use of water to create a moody, water-colour effect. I used the same technique as the previous work posted, yet I used more fineliner and no texta for building up the tone. This work has actually been created from a small scale, so I was careful to avoid using thick, strong lines which can ruin the detail.

Drawing


A drawing I did in my spare time where I had used minimal fineliner and water to create a soaked, bleeding effect (similar to that of water colour). Fineliner was used on the detailed areas such as the hair and the eyes, whilst black texta was used to build up the darker areas to create tone and emphasis. I had used an effect similar to this once for a book project for the Simple Projects And Design class.

Print-making


An etching I did of my raven character for my personal project. I etched into a plastic sheet with a drypoint tool to create the fine, intricate lines in this print. I also explored using red rice-paper as an addition to the print itself, which in turn helped to make the character stand out. I have submitted this particular print in the Preston NMIT Midway exhibition for first year students.
