Some New Portraits

Here are a few of my latest portraits.

More Quirky Portraits

Speaking of portraits, I just got some new business cards from Moo. I love the square cards, and the matte finish. You can get a different image on each card, which is great for artists of all kinds; the one on the bottom is the other side which is the same on all cards.

Quirky Faces – Dogs and Cats

New artwork

I have been working again with Alaina Jensen’s alcohol ink brushes for Procreate. In this one, I have gotten away from my usual bright colours for a pretty cool result.

This is a portrait of my friend’s dog Leo, where I used a couple of Alaina’s brushes to create a colourful texture that I blended with Leo’s photo.

In real life, since alcohol inks are transparent, they can’t really be used on a dark surface. But digitally, there are ways around that. Here’s an example.
