Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson Line Sketch

Decided to draw something & that something ended up being Dwayne Johnson also known as The Rock (wrestler) from Fast & Furious 5 (Fast Five) the new film in the series of racing films. Dwayne plays prettttty much the most awesome Special Agent ever lol.

Anyways here is my sketch, the fingers/hands could be better but quite pleased with it :)

Titus Groan & Life of Pi Sketches/Line Art

Here are two new pieces, one being part of the line art for an upcoming FMP piece - Mervyn Peake's 'Titus Groan', featuring a rather inquisitive (and eventually) evil looking owl, and the other being my sketch or plan for Yann Martel's 'Life of Pi'. There will be rather a lot of change between the images now & the final outcome but hopefully I shall get both done by the end of tomorrow! :)
Best get on it really...

ANOTHER possible postcard design?! - Joker Line

... still undecided as to what I am going to use on just one side of my postcard for New Designers this coming summer, god knows what to put on the other side, ahh well.

But yeah features just the line art with additional red colouring, be it blood but I like to think of it as ink splats :)

The white surrounding the image (in certain areas) is the bleed.

Birdsong Book Cover (+ 3,000 Page Views :D)

Here is the 6th book cover I have done so far for my Final Major Project (FMP) at University :) This is Sebastian Faulks' - Birdsong which follows a man by the name of Stephen Wraysford before & during the first world war and it sets in both France & England.

I have gone with the idea of loss & a battlefield due to the obvious war elements, but there is also a main story of love, so added a lovebird to represent said emotion, making the lovebird quite prominent & colourful.

Also I'd just like to say thank you to all those whom have taken the time to stop by my blog, can't really believe I've somehow got 3,000 pageviews?! :D

Thanks again!


Birdy Book Cover

Here is another book cover for my FMP, being that of William Wharton's - Birdy, which is a story of a damaged soldier based in & around the second World War. Eventually leading to the main character becoming mentally ill & obsessive about birds (in a nutshell :P)

Hope people like it anyways, and there is as always room for improvement with any suggestions?!
