Simon Jenkins Retirement Present

In my recent post i said that i was doing a piece of art for my friends father who is retiring.I'm happy with the outcome and i hope they are too.It took a long to create as it was a big job to do but it was worth it.It was also good to do before i got back to uni to get me used to working to a deadline.
Here it is :)

Simon Retirement Present

Okey so i was going to do an artwork of the Inbetweeners as a final piece before i start back uni but yesterday i got asked to do a picture for someone and would get paid for it ! They are good friends of mine so i couldn't turn it down and i'm willing to do it anyway!

Basically my friend Rhy's dad is retiring at the end of this month and ive been asked to do a cartoon for him as a present.I have been given a picture of Rhy's father Simon riding his bike on a dusty path through a lane.It's a good picture but will be very challenging to do.
I have drawn out the background this morning and will be colouring it on photoshop as it will be much quicker than illustrator.Also i feel i haven't used Photoshop enough and need to be using it more to colour artworks in.The image of Simon riding the bike will be done on Illustrator to give him a cartoon look, this will also hopefully stand out from the background as they are done on different programs.
I have until the 30th to do this so i need to get cracking as it's a lot of work!
Here is the background drawn up i will begin colour soon and then upload completed versions when its complete :)



Here is Simon coloured up but without the bike( almost finished)

The Inbetweeners

I have just over a week until i start back uni so i thought id do one last artwork before i go back of one of my favourite tv series THE INBETWEENERS!
They never get old and are so funny ! classics !
I thought id do a cartoon version of the 4 main characters of the show Jay,Will,Neil and Simon.
I have only got around to drawing out Jay and Neil atm because i've been so busy ! but i will start to colour them today hopefully then get the other two drawn up and then coloured.
Here is the drawings of Neil and Jay.As i'm working in illustrator i haven't made them completely finished with a black outline etc.

Hannah Starting Uni

After doing a portrait/cartoon of my brother for his birthday a few people have come to me asking if i could do one for them.I recently got asked to do one for a family friend who is just about to start uni life away from home in Newport.I was asked by Hannah's parents to include things she likes in the picture for example...

  • Beauty products
  • Hair straighteners
  • Her mobile
  • A laptop
  • A JLS poster 
  • All girly things really
Just things she is well known for liking.I was given a picture to go from of Hannah which gave me the idea of how to draw her but i had to use a few other images to work out how she looked because the image i had was slightly blurry.


And here is the final piece of art i did :)
