Can you paint with all the colours of the wind  ? 

As a child I would sit for hours and hours drawing Disney characters, pausing the VHS so I could copy it. I have drawn them so often I can draw a number of characters purely from memory. This film was one of my favourites and as trying to engage a younger audience into drawing I decided to create a Disney peice . I hope you like her .  

     

Tony Stark/Iron Man 

This is a new piece completed today and one of my favourite of all of my drawings. I love iron man and I love Tony stark, draw what you love !!  

   

Wicked but beautiful 

I have decided to stop commissions for a while and draw what I love , films, characters, musicians, what ever I love . And one of my favourite characters from last year was the brilliant maleficent.  


   

  

  So here she is .  

Fantasy faces 5

This was another of the faces I drew a while ago, I saw some girls earlier in the day dressed in the goth style, and I really liked the way they were dressed, with so much confidence and style. But noticed amongst the group their was a girl at the back of the group who looked sad a troubled. It was her face I was thinking of when I drew this, I trick show beauty and sadness.

The eyes are the window to the soul

Iv always been interested in eyes, when I doodle I usually draw eyes, I don’t know why, I just do.

I read once that people who draw eyes are interested in the souls of others, and try to see inside the people we meet.

It’s quite a nice idea really, I don’t know if it’s true, but I like the idea of it.

Drawing beauty

When I started to draw portraits a few years ago, I wanted to draw someone that was pure beautiful, And immediately Marilyn came to mind. This was an enjoyable portrait to create.
