Got a bit bored today so painted a selfie :)

I found a brush set I really really like, created by illustrator Matt Heath. Download for free here!

I think I should try and do one of these quick sort of paintings once a day (not necessarily a selfie) ...it's really good practise! 

Happy Monday people 


A couple of years ago I did a little project to raise money for WWF, where I supported their campaign to save wild tigers from extinction by drawing a tiger every day for a month and encouraging my friends to do the same. It was a really fun thing to do and it got quite a nice response, and I still keep adding little tiger-inspired pics to the collection now and again.

After recently working on a How To Draw Manga book for Arcturus, I used some of the characters I'd drawn, changed them a bit and added tigery colours to them.
