I'm not a fan of the show but I have seen it and I know the character. That's brilliant, Ninj! Do you do a lot of charicatures?

Thank you! It was my first "proper" attempt really at getting back into art again after some years. It looks way better mounted and framed in real life as the gallery pics (I find) don't do it justice there. I like Caricatures, I drew a Carry Grant one which was way better than that but I wasn't happy with the shoes! I'll maybe dig it out at some point....

Not mine, but a very good friend of mine has just put these up on deviant art.

Pretty awesome stuff from your mate Shooly! Love the design of the top one especially.

New one of mine, fresh off the tablet:

That could be all kinds of cool actually... hmm... This was the first snow environment I've done but it was good fun so may be I will try it.

Great stuff King! Really digging that first one. Quite a cool and unique style.

Thanks, your praise is most appreciated! Your work is excellent, I must say. I'm always astounded when people are able to paint with such artistry on a device like a tablet. My own art was generated on an iPod TOUCH, FYI.

Thanks for the kind words KoK!

It's my girlfriend's birthday today and I've just finished this one for her. It is a (not perfect) copy of Mark Ryden's 'Balloon Boy'. Ryden is her favorite artist. Hopefully she'll like it...

You could say you did a Cary-cature.

Looks awesome ninj! Great work! Bet Spalds is happy with it. Have you planned what to do in terms of text at all?

Aw, thanks Quint. He seems happy enough with it, so that's cool. It's the first time I've ever worked with charcoal also but really enjoyed it to be honest. I think he is going to photoshop his band's logo ("HZ") onto the pic when he's ready and they have a bit more material, other than that I'm not sure.

How is your art going? Can't wait to see some more of it!

Charcoal is a tough medium so you did a great job for your first time. Will look awesome with the logo on it as well I bet - quite an eye catching image. Art for me is going well thanks! I just finished this portrait on Friday (excuse the awful camera I used) and have a couple of concept art jobs on the go for the next month so that should keep me busy. I finally quit my job in January and went full-time freelance. Not regretted it yet!

Again, thank you. I absolutely LOVE! Your art (but you know that anyway. That's a really great piece you've added there too and the shading looks perfect. I'm so glad that you decided to go freelance.

Thanks for the kind words Ninj. I'm happy I've gone freelance too. Love the fact that my work day now revolves around art. Not looking forward to tax season next year though! I'm currently working on a project where the client wants a Charles Barkley (ex b-ball player) illustration so I've been doing some digital sketches to get to grips with the guy:

No probs at all. I love these new images! I'm not however, "overly familiar" with digital art but really dig these ones. I was actually going to say in my last post (regarding your last image), that you should be able to get enough commission work on portraits also, as they're very good!

All the best and look forward to seeing more of your work.

There was a Scottish artist called Paul Cadden in the paper at the weekend and some of his stuff is just mind-blowing.

Haha, I wish you'd posted a NOT SAFE FOR WORK warning (NSFW, as it's known in my homeland) on that link though, as when I clicked over to the original DAILY MAIL story, there was a gigantic nude half way down the page.

I've seen Paul Cadden's work before and it really is something else! He and another guy who works in acrylic carry the flag for hyper-realism as there are a lot of arguments regarding its worth as an art form. Obviously, visually its essentially a photo as that is the aim, but that disregards the skill and time put into it. One of the things critics say is that it is essentially a copy, a beautifully rendered copy, but a copy nonetheless. The artist isn't pushing themselves to create or understand the what they are drawing, they just do. My work has been accused of this too (a lot of my stuff is copies from photos and life - not on Cadden's level though) and I have taken it to heart. When you draw from something in front of you, it's all to easy to just switch the brain off and mimic what you see. I found when I started drawing from imagination, things didn't look quite right (anatomy, perspective, physics etc) and it's because I hadn't put the time in to learn these things when I copied; I didn't try to work out why the light did what it did, why his arm did this, her eye did that, I just copied what I saw. Basically when you copy you don't need to think of these things and it can stunt your growth when you try new things. I would be interested to see Cadden's work from imagination and see how it matches up. What he does is stunning to me but I can understand those who think otherwise.

Can people not just appreciate it for the technical ability though?

I think some people can, but there's a lot of snobbery in the art community (shocker) and things like this get frowned upon by a lot. To be perfectly honest I think it's jealousy. A lot of artists would kill for that kind of technical skill and instead make do with claiming their art has a 'soul' which 9 times out of 10 isn't really there.
