I have been doing a few different projects - the big ones for my portfolio and some commission work so I chopping and changing between diverse projects. I have the preliminary work for an oil painting.  I worked in stages including a dead layer.   For a larger portfolio piece which is an interior scene I did some quick value studies.  

I started that work and have started streaming on Twitch.  I am currently streaming between 9 pm and 11 pm  GMT weekdays.  Come by and say hello.

 Cutie was a break from all the serious stuff.

Moving on

Moving on 
Been messing around with this image for quite a while.  I am going to accept where it is at and move on to something else.  The good is it was a challenge and I pushed it to learn as much as possible but I am into diminishing returns.  I have another larger piece that is in a similar phase so I am finishing it and moving on to another large image.  All are to update my portfolio.

War dog sketch
 Decided to start another portfolio piece.  This is the sketch which I put together quite quickly.  I have kept working on it and am in final phase with this but I have been busy an have not had a chance to complete. 
Still doing the 30 minute sketches though they too have not had they attention they should have of late.

Rat King

Still working on larger pieces so more sketching fodder.  The rat king was playing around with a traditional feel in photoshop.  
The ship sketches are traditional.
Did the obligatory self portrait for Nov 1.

Ship sketch

Ship Sketch 

Did a ship sketch.  It fell out of some loose doodling.  It is in contrast to all the figure stuff I am doing at the moment so some contrast.  I decided to push it a little further.  Not much ink sketching this week which is ironic for inktober but it was nice to do some digital sketching for a change.  The second image is a work in progress.  Will finish it this week and get started on the next one.  The other mutifugure image I was working on got chewed up in a hard drive crash.  I will review and decide if I want to continue it.
