In todays working world everything is becoming automated. So how do you stand out? Digital art. It’s something I am passionate about in both my teaching and my freelance work. Creativity can’t yet be replicated by machines so lets spread the value of digital artwork. Whether you want to digital art for communication, developing ideas, furthering your career (or maybe just for a bit of fun) we can do it together.

The final  point to remember is developing digital art skills takes time. You will be frustrated, But when it comes together you’ll love your new found skill and from there you won’t stop progressing.

Artwork gallery


This gallery is showcasing much of my artwork, I will talk about and break down my process behind each piece. You will be able to observe this within my artwork blog.

You will notice that I like to include my artwork work in progress and my practice in the form of studies. I think this is a fantastic way to showcase how I work as an artist. You can see that I am able to take on a wide variety of styles. This includes line worked artwork all  the way through to digital paintings.

Artists who inspire me

 

I feel this is a great area of my website to explain whose artwork inspires me and why. My favorite artist and the inspiration for most of my work is Feng Zhu. As an artist he runs his own studios and has a school of design in Singapore. Feng currently has me using the #JustDraw for my artwork. As an artist he encourages users online through a Youtube channel and has hundreds of useful video tutorials and he is a huge inspirer of my work. You can check out his website here  – Feng Zhu 

Another artist I have always found inspiring is James Gurney. His book on colour and light has always been of use to me. James Gurney did the light and colour for Dinotopia. The artwork was and is amazing capturing vibrant and interesting characters a good amount of these being dinosaurs. I think what was most interesting around this art, that really made me think about my own work was his ability to bring something we have never seen in the flesh and merge this with a very realistic scenario. By this I mean market places bustling with people where dinosaurs fit into the scene. When working on anything to do with James Gurney I use the #ColourandLight Check out James Gurneys artwork here – James Gurney

People who inspire me

Finally I want to talk about Sir David Attenborough. The documentaries that he has made and created have always helped me find the resources I need to create interesting and different works of art. By far his best documentary for me is his Life series. A large thankyou as well to all the dedicated Camera people who gathered the footage. These individuals sheer determination also inspire me. When working on anything inspired by life I will use the #Life To see more of Sir David check here – Sir David Attenborough

Tutorial resources: Everything you need to know!


The Tutorial Library:

My plan here is to share the processes I go through to develop the work you see across my website in the form of a tutorial library. Sharing tutorials allows you guys to see how I would create my work if I developed them freelance, it also allows those of you who want to be artists or games designers to join in and try my own process and hopefully learn a bit about how you can apply how I work to your own stuff.  I advise viewing these full screen or you can go straight to my Youtube channel. I livestream on Thursdays if you want to ask questions so tune in at 21:00 GMT+1 and ask away, I love meeting new people and if I can help. I will.

Concept art tutorials

Below we have my concept art in Photoshop tutorial. This lets you look into using Pinterest to begin the idea creation for artwork. This tutorial aims at giving you the reader the chance to develop unique and interesting ideas. These ideas can be used for video games, stories or maybe even your D&D campaign.

Unity tutorials

This section is going to contain all tutorials surrounding the game engine Unity. In this tutorial you can learn the basics of Unity 2D. This includes character reskinning and animation. You can also learn how to implement background and platforms. You’ll finish off by creating scene transitions and allowing your character to restart when they encounter spikes or fall off of a platform.

If you are enjoying these tutorials then feel free to subscribe to my Youtube Channel. The more I know what you all like the easier it is for me to justify creating content, drop me a message on my contact me page and let me know if there is anything you want to see. I need to hear from everyone and anyone, it helps a lot!
