Meet the team

Over the last six months or so, I have been working on a group of portraits of work colleagues, that would go together to make a Team portraits. While the final picture is not finished as I still got a few more portraits to do. (This currently on hold while I get Pictures of the other colleagues left to do.)

However I put together what I have done to idea of what the final picture will look like.

Another Work Colleague Portrait

Here is another work colleague portrait.
This project is now almost done, just got two more colleagues and myself to do, but I need to get pictures of them first.
So the project is going on hold until then.
However saying that, I have started to put the final picture together to get an Idea of what it looks like so I will post that up soon.

My First Tattoo.

Every since I was in my later teens, I have been wanting to get a tattoo.
Knowing that it will be on my body for the rest of life, I did not want to rush into it.
So I have been looking for that perfect design. I knew what I want, but looking for that perfect design has never been easy.

Recently my wife got her fifth Tattoo done. With still not having found that design, I knew I never would unless I designed it myself. So that what I did.

I have always wanted to have a scorpion as that is my Star Symbol. The Scorpion also has a lot of meaning behind them, From Transition to Passion, Protection, Defensiveness and Solitary/Being, Alone which is all so a lot like my personality.

The other thing I have always wanted was something to symbolise my love of Science fiction.
I thought about having a Batman or Wolverine done, but again could never find something that I liked.
So I started to think about what other things I like, and I have always been a fan of Star Trek.
Trek has lots of different symbols within it, and I have always liked the Klingon Race, with their honour. In the original series they where the bad guys, but when TNG started to use them. The Klingons where no longer the bad guys and we got a deeper look into their culture, which reminded me a lot of old Japanese culture. This is something that I find fascinating.

So I started to come up with different designs that combined a scorpion and the Klingon Symbol.
I finally came up with a design I wanted the tattoo to look, but it still needed work on getting the final look.

Here are some of the final layouts that I came up with.

And here is the tattoo.


Elizabeth from BioShock Infinite

I recently saw some Cos-Play pictures and found a good pic of Elizabeth from the latest Bioshock game.
So I thought I have a go at drawing her.

Here is the outline, not sure if I will colour this one, but I am happy with the way it has turned out.
